Does anyone know why cabin shots are so popular?

My best viewed photo ever is this cabin shot :

It's an okay shot, but personally not very interesting. I have photos which I find a lot more interesting.

Because in many cabin shots you will find cute F/A's in the background, sometimes in...interesting positions Big grin

I don't know... But I never look at them. I'm not interested in furniture or the back of other people's heads...

Hi all

Like Eduard, never look at them either unless I am screening.

If screening them, I find it very hard to stay awake. I make lots of coffee when I see a batch of them in the queue  Wink/being sarcastic

I'd reject them all but the Boss says no!

Cheers

Maybe some people have never flown on that type of a/c and want to see what the interior looks like. I like cabin shots.

Yes, I was often wondering about the same. I mean, come on... take this situation : You spend an awful lot of time, stand in the freezing winter wind on a little ladder and get some really nice shots that you are really proud of. But if you later look at your photo stats, you notice that people klicked far more often on the rather dull cabin photo which you took within 3 seconds while disembarking from a normal flight!  Big grin

On the other hand I like cabin shots as it enables me to get somewhat of a picture of what a flight onboard an airline that I havent flown on would be like...and its also interesting to see just see in general the cabins...I find them interesting and even a bit intriguing at times...

I agree with USAFHummer here, like if ur planning to fly somewhere and have a choice of airlines, wudnt it be nice to see what is on offer on board from various airlines i.e. type of seating, layout of seating, IFE etc.

Maybe. But for me, if you've seen one, you've seen 'em all. And I have seen more then one. The same question could be asked about all the different types of a/c on here. Personal choice is personal choice, whatever the reason for it.

I travel quite a bit so it's interesting for me to compare the cabins of various airliners in different airlines. I also like to see what sort of new amenities there are in the newer cabins... seat features, cabin furniture etc...

And I also find older cabins fascinating. Since I only started flying in the 1980s, it's great to see what cabins were like before then.

Because spotters are a bunch of passenger wannabes who do nothing  Laugh out loud but sit in the cold outside the fence of the airport with their photo equipment that costs a lot more than a first class ticket from wherever they are to wherever they would like to be, hoping for a shot that will be accepted into the database, and envy the passengers who are actually inside the heated planes they are spotting, and going to the destinations where they wish they were. Sort of wish I was in that mentality.

Yes, the post is in jest  Laugh out loud !!!
