Im flying CVG-EWR in Oct and was wondering which side of the aircraft usually provides the best views on approach. Obviously on the day it depends on weather tec, but would you reccoment i pre-book an A, or F, window seat.
Thanks in advance!

Depends on what you like to look at..If you want views of NYC you will have to know what the prevailing wind will be that day if the wind is out of the south you will want an "A" seat (left side) or vice virsa if the wind is out of the north. Unless you want to see the terminal on the approach then it would be the opposite. I have found with all the times I flew into EWR that it was about 50/50 either it was RWY 22L or 4R. Twice I landed on 29 but it will still follow the 22 approach NYC on the left side..Check the weather history maybe you can find a trend of winds and hope for the best...Don't know if this helps but I gave it a shot...Have fun.

i flew in to EWR four times over the last month and we have made the same approach every time. Sit on the left side of the aircraft for the highest chance of NYC views.

Agree w above. Sit row A, if you land to the south you'll get the city view. If north, you'll see the cloud factories ... but anecdotally chances seem 60-40 southbound approach.

Thank you guys... an A seat it is, and fingers crossed! My 1st time flying into the NYC area and its only a transit as connecting onto either LH, SK, LX or OS back to Europe on staff tickets! I wanted to spend approx 30hrs in NY but we cant find a hotel room under $368 in a convenient downtown location... what a shame! Maybe next year............. Big grin Another excuse to visit my favourite holiday destination!

You'll almost certainly be tracking the BWZ 302-degree radial inbound


as you cross the Delaware River into New Jersey, so with a look at the maps ahead of time you can get oriented, if the weather's clear. The river will stand out plainly; a few minutes after the river you'll either make a big turn NEward, about toward Dover, which means you'll land runway 22L-- or a right turn off the radial suggests 4R.

If you are sitting on the left, and you do turn toward Dover, might as well keep an eye out for the JFK arrivals from the west, maybe 13000 ft above you.
