Longhaul, aisle definitely. I've been on many 13-hour nonstop flights and always opt for the night flight for both directions. 1st reason, I don't want to be a pain in the a$$ to the person next to me whenever i need to go to toilet (i go often!). 2nd reason, it's at night. What can I see anyway???

Window seat anytime. I prefer to be forward of the engines, so I can watch the engine starting up. Day time flights are nice but night time flights are good because of the view while on take-off or landing of all the lights below you.

I do prefer window seats for a daytime flight. I, too, not only enjoy the view but also like to watch the flap movements. On a return flight, however, I do prefer an aisle seat. It makes getting off the plane a bit easier and quicker.

Since I have always traveled in the cheap seats, I always try and usually get, an aisle seat. Best is getting an aisle seat and no one next to you! Then you can move to the window for the view/landing/takeoff, yet don't have anyone next to you when you want to go to the lavatory. Sometimes though, like on long flights when you want to sleep, the window seat can be convenient as have a wall to lean against.

Aisle on long haul, and window on short. Like Keno, on long haul I tend to go to the bathroom often or I simply like to get up and stretch my legs and I hate bothering the person beside me. The worst is to be in the middle ... I actually got stuck in the middle once on AZ (LOS-ACC-MXP). My worst flight ever!

Anything that is one seat away from the aisle is good enough for me. A window seat in the 747s and some 777s (with 3-3-3 config) is quite a nuisance, as I have to go out and "jump" 2 people at once, and believe me, some people have been quite ignorant, in which they seem to be quite angry whenever you try to go out of your seat. For comfort reasons of not disturbing others, I prefer aisle seats much more than window seat, as what happens on the outside of the aircraft is quite a cliche (unless something interesting happens e.g. birdstrike etc.). It becomes quite boring after a while. That's my personal opinion on it.
: I would take a window seat any day! Better for pictures too! Especially if you're right in front of the wing! TRACON
: Aisle seat as far up front as possible, I always used to have a window seat down the back but got pissed off to many times with some old couple doing
: Maybe I digress, or presume, but may I remind German-, Italian- and some Scandinavian language speakers that AISLE is pronounced IYL. Do not pronounce
: Window on 6 hours flights and shorter. Aisle on flights that are longer than 6 hours. It can get to be uncomfortable.
: Window usually, though the aisle can be good so you can get in and out... hmm tough choice Tom
: the only window seat i hate is the farthest back on the md80. great view of the chipping paint on the engine. (if you watch carefully you can see the
: It all depends on why I am flying and if I have to make a connection. If I am going on a vacation or I dont need to rush than a window and if the situ
