Some aircraft have a 13th row, but others don't, and it usually depends on the airline or the plane. Airlines that exclude this number from their seating rows likely do so due to the popular superstition that the number 13 is unlucky.

Regional carriers that serve casino cities in Nevada, for example, may avoid including a row 13 in order to make customers feel more comfortable as they travel toward their destination. Various airlines across the world may have this policy, though some airlines may only exclude the 13th row on some of their planes.
