Superstition and airplanes

Have you ever noticed while flying that some airlines have a 13th row and others don’t? I only noticed that during my last flight with Austrian airlines while I was looking for my seat.

AirTran does not offer a 13th row because passengers had expressed a desire not to sit there.

The number 13 is not the only unlucky number for some cultures, and airlines have responded to that too. Lufthansa, which is based in Germany, does not have a 13th or 17th row. The reason is that in Italy and Brazil, 17 is regarded as unlucky.

Oh that superstitious
