I'm not sure which I prefer. I have only flown on leather once. Although my ass did get sweaty, the seat was just so incredible it didn't really matter. Even on cloth, after sitting for prolonged periods of time, your ass will be sweaty.

Leather - Easier to clean. You can wash it with a surface cleaner..... more expensive to buy up-front, but the costs in upkeep are way down.
I've seen some pretty nasty cloth seats in the years I've been around airliners. Some dark-stained headrests after being soaked with peoples' skin oil, hair products, spit, sweat, and what not..... over and over...... ugh.

I prefer leather. It's far more sanitary; easier to clean. Cloth seats are soaked in urine, feces, vomit, and head lice and mites. Yuck!!! Leather for me please!!! I'd even prefer imitation leather to cloth.

744, that sounds totally shagadelic! I have yet to fly TG and would to be sitting in one of those velvet F seats. That sounds really comfortable to me. Otherwise, please give me leather. It's much more comfortable than cloth, which to me personally, cheapens the whole F experience and after all isn't that what flying F is all about....?

In my car I like leather. There I can fart as much as I need to. In an airplane I´d say fabrics is the choice.
As I mentioned in a similar thread some years ago, I found fabric seats having fart-absorbing abilities. Still investigating...

it depends.... if the plane has climate control i prefer leather seats, they're just more comfortable to sit in IMO. if the plane has no climate control, like the cessnas im flying right now i'll take cloth. keeps your back cooler usually. also, sheepskin is quite nice.
