BEFORE you book your seat for your next flight, you might want to double check if you fancy a window seat.

A number of window seats on airlines don't actually have a window – meaning your views will be spoilt for the rest of the flight.

This changes depending on the airline and the aircraft.

Ryanair passengers should not sit in seat 11A, 11F or 12F if they want to look out of the window during the flight.

While the airline warns "this seat has no window" when trying to book, annoyed passengers have still taken to social media to complain over the years.

Traveller Hamilton Morroy joked, alongside a picture of a plain cabin wall: "I have to say, I'm loving the view from my Ryanair window seat."

Passenger Chelsea Deborah tweeted: "I paid for a window seat… and there was no window. I would like that money back. Thanks."

One man even drew it himself on his phone, saying: "I've fitted a temporary one for this flight only! I'll wait to hear back from you."

Other airlines also have the same problem, such as easyjet and British Airways, but passengers are not warned when booking.

On Ryanair, you should avoid seat 11A
On some easyJet flights, seat 31A has no window

According to SeatGuru, easyJet passengers should avoid seats 26A and 26F if travelling on the Airbus A319, and 31A and 31F on an Airbus A320.

Window-seat lovers should also avoid British Airways seats 22A, 22K, 37A and 37K on the Boeing 777-300 and seats 12A, 12K, 50A, 50K, 70A and 70K on an Airbus A380.

There are no windows on Virgin Atlantic flights in seats 21A or 21K if travelling on an Airbus A330, or seats 60K on a Boeing 747.

Norwegian passengers sitting in seats 10A, 11A or 11F will find themselves without a window as well.

The reason the seats don't have a window is due to the design and configuration of the planes.

While Airbus and Boeing are the manufacturers of most aircraft, they are not in charge of the interior seating arrangement – airlines have their own specifications for seat sizes and legroom widths.

This can cause seats to not line up with the windows correctly or even be missing one entirely.

Passengers who are charged for a window seat but do not have one are not entitled to compensation.

Choosing the window seat could also make you less likely to get sick on a plane, according to experts.

Never lean on it though, even if you fancy a snooze – as they are rarely cleaned.
