Aisle or Window - Airplane Seat Preference?
« on: December 10, 2007, 03:54:19 PM »

I was boarding a crowded plane yesterday and I was amused by the weird social interaction that happens between strangers that are forced to spend several hours crammed up against each other.

Funny things from the look of horror that flashes across people's faces as I made a shoulder feint toward their row (I'm not a small person) to the choice some make whether to get out to let the inside person in or just sit there and force them to do the awkward dance of trying to climb over.

Anyway, I was wondering whether you all prefer aisle or window seats on a plane.

Heh, I rarely encounter empty rows these days. I tend to fly on busy days I guess.

I was traveling with a friend one time and he asked an old lady in a middle seat in another row if she'd mind switching seats with him (he had a window seat, the old lady was sitting next to a very attractive woman)  She refused, though. An interesting, although overt approach.  I'm not sure if he's ever been successful.

As a kid, the window, for obvious reasons.  As an adult the aisle for sure.  Easier to move around, and better access to the drink cart.  ( I don't fly well, and only do it @ 5 SST)

Window.  Trying to figure out the magic formula re: aircraft and configuration to find a row with a nice, between the windows flat spot upon which I lean my head and sleep.

First class.  Cool

Domestic flights I'll take the window. When I go international I like the aisle for reasons stroh mentioned. I can get up without bothering anyone. But....I do like leaning against the side for sleeping.

Rarely do you encounter empty rows anymore. But on the occasion when the seat(s) next to you is empty it is great.

I prefer the window so I can lean my head against the wall to sleep and to keep a look out for this:

I prefer window but if traveling with the wife I will always get the isle. One trip we took from Chicago to Dallas we were on a 777. Big f'n plane. It was about 1/4 full. I took an entire middle row, 5 seats. Just spralled out and slept.

Back in '98, the wife and I took a direct flight from SFO to CDG, and it was on a 777. We did the same dealie with the empty seats. Couldn't do it on the flight back because the flight was almost full, and on top of that I had one of the worst red wine-induced headaches of my life.  Angry

Never had a reason to fly.  Probably the window seat since I like scenery so much.

You'd better be E-A-G-L-E-E-Y-E if you plan on catching much scenery at 35K feet.   Wink
