While flying home from a business trip. Gee, my favorite thing in life. The aisle seat has a new appreciation, especially when I’m the smallest guy in the row (and I’m not small).

I hate the window seat.

Only thing worse is having an aisle seat and the stewardess has 1.5 aisle wide rear end and stops the food/beverage cart right behind your row.

It made me think of something. What is the proper way to exit from a window seat with passengers in the middle and aisle seat. Is it with your butt facing the seated passenger, or your front side facing the seated passengers?

It's a question as old as "Why are we here".

Unless it's first class, and preferably not even then, I am absolutely making them get the heck up first. Have you seen a seat/leg room lately?

^^^ This. There is no room anymore to get out of the window seat with the other two occupied. Getting up and out of the way of your seat mates is the new ettiquette.

I prefer the window seat. I don't have to be bothered the entire flight. I just zone out and wait for us to land.

I like the window seat, except on long flights.

It's a lot easier to sleep leaning against the window.

What sucks is the company buying you a ticket from Dubai in the last seat by the lav in an A380. Can't recline, trapped between two overweight arabs that don't bathe but try to cover it with the same damn cologne and soap, and the lav door slamming every thirty seconds for the next fourteen hours

Nothing like the elbow smash from the drink cart on an aisle seat...for the fourth time in a row.

Not to sound snooty, but if I can't drive, I'll fly. If I can't get a first class seat, I'll stay home.

I refuse to be smashed into coach anymore. Riding Greyhound in the old days was a much more pleasant experience. That's a really sad commentary on air travel today.

I understand that completely. Paying for personal comfort is worth it. I once spent a ridiculous amount of money on a high class resort vacation. No riff raff, very pleasant. No children under eight allowed and with the prices charged, there were none.

I always go for the aisle seat. I hate the window and despise the center seat even more.

Piss before you get on and the window seat is glorious. Shades down, seat back, Bose noise cancelling on and I typically forget we are flying.

Anymore, I have to go for the aisle seat also. Shoulders are too wide to fit either other seat, and I’d rather have people brushing past me than try to stuff myself into the window.

A few years ago, I was on of the last to board and was traveling alone. I’m six foot and when in great shape, about 230lbs. I was a little heavier than that at the time. When I found my seat, all I could do was laugh. My seat was in the middle of two dudes who both looked like NFL linebackers. They looked at me, and we all shook our heads, grimaced and chuckled a bit. The Michael Clarke Duncan look-alike in the aisle seat got up to let me in. When we all settled in, I was about as smooshed as smooshed gets. The guy in the window seat remarked “of course they would put the three biggest guys on the plane all next to each other, why wouldn’t they?” We all laughed. Just then, a flight attendant spoke up and asked if anyone would mind trading seats with an elderly woman who didn’t want to be seated in an exit row? I immediately just about jumped out my seat shouting “ME! ME!” The guys on either side of me burst into laughter. I think everyone was happy about that change of seating.

You must be a short fella. Those of us with femurs longer than 2'? Nope. Coach is agony, Bose or no Bose.
