According to the National Transportation Safety Board, only one in 1.2 million flights end up in an accident, but there are still precautions passengers can take to prepare for emergency situations, ABC News reported.

Professor Ed Galea of the University of Greenwich, who studied the seating charts of more than 100 plane crashes and interviewed dozens of survivors, has found that survivors move an average of five rows before safely exiting a burning plane.

His study has suggested that seats in the rear of a plane were generally safer that the aisle seats.
