Do you prefer the aisle or window seat when traveling? Why?
I think my preference has evolved a little over the years. When I first started flying as a young adult I always wanted the window. Didn’t everyone at an early age? The excitement of looking out the window at 32,000 feet. In amazement of where you are, how fast you are going and how fascinating it all is.
But eventually you get tired of crawling over people to go pee.
And if you’re like me you start to develop a preference for the aisle so you can get up and walk around whenever you want without feeling guilty. You know, around age 24, when you start to develop restless leg syndrome?
If we’re throwing another person into the mix however, like a boyfriend, and we’re going on a long flight, I would probably choose the window and the middle for the two of us so we could cozy up together and settle in, without having to worry about someone crawling over us to go pee. I’ve traveled with other companions and we sat in two aisles next to each other. So we could still chat and be comfortable, with either one of us having to sit in a middle seat.
What do you say? aisle or window?
