I hate when you have the window seat and the mean, cold vent is right next to you...*shiver*

I like to fly on those little planes with 1 seat, an aisle, and 2 more seats, and sit on the side where I get to be at the window and on the aisle at the same time.

Aisle seat usually. Mild claustrophobia. Also, I'm tiny and big people are always squishing me with their shoulders. :(

I'd prefer not be in the middle of two people.. but it's not going to make my trip worse if I am.
nate... · 17 years, 11 months ago
I'm 6'3". :P I have to have the aisle if it's even a remote possibility... otherwise I'm a freakin sardine in a can.

but if it's not a remote possibility, I'll take the window, just because at least it's something. never EVER middle.
I think with middle, I just wouldn't fly.

Bah! I'm 6'7" and have flown in a middle seat in every flight I've taken.

Bulkhead rows are the way to go. They suck because there's no storage under the seat in front of you (because there's no seat in front of you), but there's more legroom than an exit row, and your seat still reclines. :-)

nate... Back · 17 years, 11 months ago
wow... you must either not have very long legs, or have an extraordinary ability to deal with being scrunched. :)

Although if you ALWAYS do bulkhead rows, then, yeah. With those, there's no issue.
I forgot to mention them... but.. I was only lucky enough to get one once.
Most of the time, they're the first to be snapped up.

Bruce Rose Back · 17 years, 11 months ago
It's the scrunched one. I have a 35 inch inseam, but I drive small, Korean cars. :-)

Thanks for posting my reply :D

I'd have the window seat for take-off and landing, and then trade for aisle once the plane is in the air. Unless it was a clear day, or a low flight.

What I'd love, but for obvious reasons it's not going to happen, would be glass-bottom planes. Transparent aluminum, perhaps? Maybe I should just borrow Wonder Woman's plane...

I sit at the window when possible on planes, trains, and busses. I take the Long Island Railroad most days but I'll still look out the window at least part of the trip. On planes I can look out the window for hours.

i'm all about the window, especially when flying out of chicago.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 17 years, 11 months ago
Why flying out not in?

I've always found the view on the way back to New York better than the view leaving. It probably has something to do with the wind patterns and flight plans. That is probably the answer to my question. Chicago has the same situation but in reverse.
goovie is married! Back · 17 years, 11 months ago
yes, i believe you have the answer right there. the view flying out of midway is awesome.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 17 years, 11 months ago
I actually remember that. You approach from the lake.

I also remember being struck by how many softball fields I saw from the air.

sheryls Back · 17 years, 11 months ago

one of the ways out of Logan was more awesome than the other, but i cant remember which. i think it was leaving. coming in was neat because it looked like you were gonna land in the water then BAM! land hits. but at the same time, that's incredibly unnerving. o.O

i'm a nervous flyer.

I have been about the aisle seat for a long time but I sat by the window on my flight home and it made the flight seem so much more pleasant! you don't feel as crammed into an ugly noisy airplane.
Geoff · 17 years, 11 months ago
I take the aisle seat on the train so's I can get up and go to the bathroom without making the person next to me get up. This is a frequent occurrence. And I don't fly.
