Does it matter to you where you sit on a plane?
Would you rather have a middle seat, the window seat, or a seat on the aisle?
I love sitting by the window but hate feeling trapped if I am on my own so I have started to ask for an aisle seat so I can stretch out or get up when I want rather than have to ask someone to move for me .
Some people are so big you cannot squeeze past them & make me feel trapped in .
Also so many people seem to be so grumpy these days I hate asking them to let me past especially if they are asleep.
On my floght to Adelaide last week I had a row to myself so got to sleep comfortably asit was the middle of the night !
Steward in one of the plane told passengers:"What are you looking for? Take any seat. Believe me they are all the same"! It was a budget flight and seats were not assigned to passengers beforehand. In fact it depends what exactly you want . If you are afraid of a catastrophe - take rear seats. According to stats passengers there survive more often. If you need to stretch you legs - take an isle seat. If you are going to stay all flight in your place - take a window seat and none botheres you trying to go to WC.
A lot of people who choose an aisle seat pick them for the extra room, whereas people who tend to sleep often choose a window seat.
I always used to sit down the back as more survive down there ! Last week I was right near the front but felt strange , On my last flight I had a big person next to me was really squashed . I would have moved to an emmty row but I knew her.
No not at all, because I have no intentions on ever stepping foot onto an airplane again as long as all of this stupid airline security is happening around us. If that means that I'll never fly again, then so be it!
I usually opt for a window seat as I like to see what's down below. But I'll only do this if my wife is next to me. Otherwise I will select an aisle seat. I will avoid a middle seat at all cost. I need "my space" and being trapped in the middle gives me the heebie jeebies.
Skyscanner did a poll on several passengers and less than 1% chose the middle seat. 60% chose the window seat, which I prefer too. Like you said I want to see what's around me.
yes, i always choose the first 10 rows preferably by the window seat and near the bathroom if there is a bathroom near the first 10 rows.
Spoken like a professional traveler! This is actually the most popular answer given on a recent poll done on over 1000 passengers.
Thanks Michelle.After traveling quite a bit, I had several mishaps in seat arrangements and i kinda have learned the tricks over the years. Best to reserve your seats on line while booking so you can have the pick of the crop.LOL!
Too bad more people don't feel this way, then maybe I wouldn't have such a difficult time trying to find a window seat. I like the window seat because I feel claustrophobic at times and staring out the window helps me to preoccupy myself.
U must read one of my hub if you get time dear...LOL ....Its about the issue you are referring here.
Worst seat = middle seat. My favourite is the window seat because I like to look out, when the plane is flying and also stare at the clouds
I feel the same way. I definitely try to get a window seat 1st if possible, 2nd choice an aisle seat, and last the dreaded middle seat. I think most people just like their own space and being stuck in the middle seat hardly allows for it.
