Aisle or Window?

Would you rather sit in the aisle or window seat of an airplane?

I prefer window on shorter routes or a flight I suspect may be particularly scenic.

Aisle for the long haul.

Sleeping meds also have made my flights much easier this past year.

Aisle. I hate having to climb over people to get to the bathroom. The only time I like to sit by the window is if there's no one sitting next to me, so I kinda get both window and aisle. Enjoyed that arrangement on the bus on a few of the legs coming home.

I prefer the window, because of the clouds. Gotta love flying above a cumulonimbus on a summer evening. So cool. I get lucky I guess, only had to sit isle once. DFW to PDX, wasn't too bad. Flying international, especially over an ocean, and with a window view... so much good views!

Definitely window... because I'd MUCH rather enjoy watching the landscape/clouds go by than remembering I'm stuck on a germ-y airplane for hours and probably getting sick from the air I'm breathing.

Also because I am a photographer, too

prefer the window, that way you can sleep without people waking you up to get past.

Yeah, window every time here too. Can't resist the sights..
Oddly enough, I feel more stir crazy in the isle seat than the window.

the window.

scenery and i have something to lean against when I sleep. Its nearly impossible for me to sleep sitting straight up. Have to be severely sleep deprived and drugged heavily on sleep medication for it to work.

The window for sure.. so I can just stare out.. and sometimes take pictures like this..

I also like to lean on the side to sleep.

had an aisle seat for the first 14 hour flight from NJ to japan, and a window seat on the return japan to nj.
(the flight goes over alaskan mountain ranges and glaciers and cool parts of canada like the yukon. Really beautiful. Also damn, canada has a lot of lakes in the summer.)


i prefer the window, but id rather have the aisle in certain situations like sitting next to fat people, or seemingly mean people, or if the flight is solely at night.
if it will only be during the night. then window is pretty pointless.
