Seating arrangements

Exit Row Seating

Movable Aisle SeatDefinition/Function:
Exit row seats are located in the same row as the emergency exit doors of the aircraft.

An airline must not exclude any qualified individual with a disability from any seat in an exit row or other location, if the individual can perform the necessary functions of sitting in the seat in accordance with FAA regulations.

Airline personnel are responsible for making an individual determination as to whether any individual is able to perform the functions required of a passenger occupying an exit seat in the event of an emergency.

Not all disability-related limitations prevent people from performing the required exit row functions.

Airlines must not require that a qualified individual with a disability sit in a particular seat on the basis of a disability.
