Window Or Aisle?

Fri Nov 19, 2004 2:11 pm

This thread is pretty self-expanatory. What is your seat preference?
Window, aisle, or middle  Big grin ?

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???

Short flights (under 4 hours), window definitely.

By Far a window seat, and I would imagine that many a.netters would feel the same.

Hello!!!

Window please, and a dayflight anytime. And behind the wings, have to check out all the flap movements  Big thumbs up

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.

But now you have to get up every time...

For me a window seat all the way! Except if I travel with my girlfriend, she likes it as well and as she´s quite small she doesn´t block my view  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

True. I don't mind giving way to people, but prefer not to be a frequent nuissance to strangers. Unless I'm travelling with friends or family all in a row, then gimme window seat anytime  Big grin

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.
Long live the RJ!

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.

True true.

Window seat anytime for me. If you don't want to bother the people next to you by always going to the toilet , wear a nappy.

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!

Definitely a window during the day for the view, but at night it would have to be an aisle all the way.

Yip, I agree with you 100% that the jump seat is the best window seat.

Window on short haul and definitely aisle for long haul. I like to go in and out on a long flight so I can come and go as I pleased on a aisle seat.

Happy Flying  Smile

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.

Regards,
AK

Better for pictures too! Especially if you're right in front of the wing!

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 the right thing and letting everybody else get off before they would even think about getting up and moving
thank god i was not born a bird. this type of flying is much better

Maybe I digress, or presume, but may I remind German-, Italian- and some Scandinavian language speakers that AISLE is pronounced IYL. Do not pronounce the S! Next time you ask me for an AZEL seat I won't be able to stop laughing. In Dutch this word means DONKEY! So you wanna fly ass...

Window on 6 hours flights and shorter. Aisle on flights that are longer than 6 hours. It can get to be uncomfortable.

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 engine contour to the airflow)
If Continental had a hub at DFW with nonstop flights I would always fly them, unfortunantely good things take time.

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 situation is just the opposite than I would sit at the isle.
