Most of us do NOT prefer the middle seat on a plane. A recent poll asked people if they had their choice, which seat would they choose, and only 3% said they'd be fine with the middle seat.
The big issue is that there aren't any perks of the middle seat. But one airline is trying to change that.
Virgin Australia is trying to make the middle seat more appealing by launching a LOTTERY with $230,000 in prizes for people who fly in the middle seat like a Caribbean cruise, free flights, and tickets to soccer matches.
The promotion is running for the next six months but only in Australia for now. If you fly in a middle seat on a Virgin Australia-operated domestic flight, all you have to do is opt into the lottery in the app within two days of your departure.
