Question of the Day

For you frequent… or not-so-frequent fliers:

Window or aisle?

I used to always want a window seat so I could watch the world go by or enjoy the cloud patterns.  But as you get older, you begin to appreciate the accessibility to the lavatory that comes with sitting on the aisle, and besides, once you’ve seen the landscape between Dallas and Albuquerque, there’s not much more to see.  The downside of the aisle is that people bump into you as they walk by with their luggage, and the food cart is a mean missile.

3 barks and woofs on “Question of the Day

  1. Short (less than two hours) flight – window, Longer flight – aisle, for easier access to restroom.

  2. It’s all bad. Aisle = window or center seat person makes you unlock and stand up so they can get to the toilet. Window = you have to crawl over the middle guy and make the aisle guy get up (see above). Middle seat = try to avoid being stuck there no matter what. And don’t forget that no matter where you sit the guy in front of you – or more often some executive-type and entitled female makes like having a nap and tips her seat back onto your tray table ignoring your deep sighs and throat-clearing noises.

    Lesson = drive even if it takes six hours.
