Assalamualeakum w.w

I was in the plane and some brothers in islam said the azan aloud, thereafter carried out the salat in the aisle, me wearing niqab i didnt think it was appropiate to stand in the aisle to pray cause i would be center of attention being the only female praying.
Therefore i prayed salat in my seat was that wrong of me? can you please tell me the shariat ruling regarding this matter.

Jazakamullah kair

Answer
Wa Alaikum Salam,

In the question mentioned salah will not be accepted. Although you were right not to join the others however you should have prayed standing in the least conspicuous place available (such as the back of the plane).

And Allah knows best
