    Kind of off topic but I would love to hear about one of your trips to Dubai.

    I LOVE the window seat, left side of the plane for Aruba to get that first glimpse of the island. I like the shade up on take off & landing. I have to see what the heck is going on out there. While flying I could care less if it is open or closed.

    I sit on the left side going in and out, with the shade up. The view never gets old.

    I am not thrilled with flying so I like it down. I do put it up when getting close to arrival.

    I am shocked at how many like the aisle seats. I actually hate the aisle and prefer the window.

    I'm right there with you Jay. I love looking out the window on the ground and in the air.

    I fly alone and I have a bit of claustrophobia so I choose aisle to help lessen the claustrophobia and strangerphobia factor.

    Shade up or down, whatever the window sitter wants, but I do like it up on takeoff and landing. Unless window sitter leans forward and blocks everyone else's view, in which case, again, it doesn't matter

    I always book an aisle seat. I like the freedom of being able to get up whenever I want/need to. I always greet my row mates and let it go naturally from there. I let them know not to hesitate to say if they need to get out. Now, is there anyone who likes the MIDDLE seat?
