Praying on a plane while sitting

Q 7: Is it permissible to perform Salah (Prayer) on a plane while a person is sitting though he is able to stand but is shy?

A: A person is not permitted to perform Salah while sitting as long as they are able to perform it while standing whether they are on a plane or any other place. Allah (Exalted be He) says, And stand before Allâh with obedience [and do not speak to others during the Salât (prayer)]. Al-Bukhari reported on the authority of `Imran ibn Al-Husayn that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said to him, Perform Salah while standing and if you cannot, perform it while sitting and if you cannot do even that, then perform it lying on your side. Al-Nasa'y reported an addition to this Hadith with a sound chain of transmitters: If you cannot do even that, you can pray lying on your back. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
