Favourite Seat On An Aircraft

Mon Dec 13, 2004 8:07 pm

Aisle,Middle,Window.
Whats your Favourite seat on an Aircraft,if you had a choice & why.
I always choose Last seat on the Aisle.Better view,Dont have to ask anyone to get up if I want to move around,Chance to talk with the F/As at aft galley,Quick Exit on arrival,unless theres only one available.
Atleast I used to use this seating with my previous Employee,on official mx trips.Be the last in & first out,unless travelling Jumpseat.
The same sticks today also.

Window seat, Also prefer the first row in economy due to the leg room

I always choose an aisle with an window. It's just on the left side as you walk into the cockpit!!

HAWK21M:

If we were on the same flight, we would be sitting across the aisle from each other.
I always request last row, aisle seat. Never deal with children kicking the back of my seat, far from crying babies - who are usually at the bulkhead row, and close to the galley and lavs (both essential for beer).

Oh, and as for my own preference: always window. I can't stand flying and not being able to see the action outside! It's not like I travel on a plane every day, so I always want to make the most of it. Besides, how can you take wingview photos from an aisle seat?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Long live the A330!

For me, I'm a window seat kind of guy hands down. I'm most familiar with our (FL) 717's. Of course any business class window seat is sweet. However, my fav's in coach are:
1. 10A-Bulkhead 2 side window; more leg room and an intimate experience.

2. 10F Bulkhead on the 3 seat side. Not quite as much leg room as 10 A.

3. Row 26 A or F: I know, this is 5 from the aft portion of the plane but being an air travel freak it is excellent for me because:
A. Window seats
B. Plenty of window view but, can see the wing action a few rows ahead.
C. Turn your head and you get to see and hear those Rolls Royce engines propel this super efficient jet. And, being towards the back, I can board first. Of course working for the company I can board whenever I so desire.

On the Boeing 717, window seats generally are cooler climate wise. More air circulation from an already very good system. I like it cool to cold.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
