    On a short flight, 3 hours or less, I like window. On a long flight, I like aisle – I need to stretch and I have the bladder of a gnat so I don’t want to disturb someone every time I have to get up to pee 🙂

    (an isle is a small mass of land surrounding by water)

    I prefer aisle seats when I fly alone because I don’t want to both people to go pee, but if it’s me and Darling Husband and there are two seats on the side, I’ll take the window so I can cosy up to it.

    I prefer the window seat because I can sleep against the window – not necessarily for the view (although a huge plus).

    I work in an office with a lot of higher up’s and see alot of the travel arrangements done.  They ALL request aisle.  If they don’t have the option, they will look for a different flight just so they can get the aisle.  (This is 20-30 people we’re talking about here)

    Before I started working here, I didn’t know that the aisle seats were SO popular.

    The isle for flying. The window scares the shit out of me, and I like not having to step over anyone if I need to use the bathroom. I never take the bus or train, but I imagine I’d prefer the window on those.

    I prefer sitting in the aisle so I can get up to stretch and use the bathroom.

    I prefer the window, but I usually get stuck in the middle because Fiance is 6’2″ and just doesn’t fit in the middle…

    I don’t like aisle. I don’t get up much during flights (and all my flights are long and international due to my LDR). I also don’t like having people walk right by me or having the cart come by and smack my seat. No thanks.

    So window!!! Plus, I like being able to rest my head on the window. And I feel like I have less people able to look at me when I try to sleep.

    I prefer window seats so I have something to lean on when I fall asleep.

    Aisle, I hate feeling confined and having to climb over people to use the bathroom, plus there are usually windows at the end of the plane if I feel the need. I go out of my way to get aisle, including paying a few extra dollars if I need to.

    Definitely need the window seat! Especially on a plane, it makes me feel less anxious. I have pretty severe travel anxiety, and being able to see what’s happening lessens that.

    @KJA00:  I am a bit weird… I prefer window but am too scared to look out during takeoff. Once I am used to being up in the air for a few hours I then will look out (and during landing). As long as I’m not in the middle then it’s not too bad.

    Window, I love being able to see everything!!  Also, my Fiance pees more than my grandmother, so I hate having to get up out of my (cramped) seat so let him go buy every time he drinks a can of Diet Coke! 😉
