I can distinctly remember my first ever trip on an airplane. I was 8 years old and we were flying from Los Angeles to Oklahoma City to visit my mom’s family. Oh boy was I excited! And dressed up too! No sloppy jeans for us. My mom and I were in new dresses and my brother wore a little tie.
Oh how things have changed today! Everyday you can hear someone complaining about the airlines, the food, TSA or the seats. Its bad enough the amount they charge for First or Business class seats but now they even charge extra for extra room in coach.
My co-worker is flying to Hawaii and the other day we got started talking about seat preferences when on an airplane.
She really likes the window seat because she can see what is outside especially as the plane is descending for landing. But if she is traveling with her husband she usually selects the dreaded center seat so he can have an aisle.
I prefer an aisle seat solely because I get the feeling of having more space since one shoulder is not next to someone or something. My second choice would be a window. That said, I usually select a center seat when traveling with my husband. That is, of course, until he spilled red wine on me during a flight to New York City. The aisle across from him will work just fine, thank you!
I book corporate travel as part of my “job” and most co-workers prefer aisles but some opt for windows.
No one books that center seat!!
On this Friday and just for Fun I thought I’d ask . . .
