On a plane you can get an aisle seat, a middle seat or a window seat
I definitely prefer the window seat. That way, I don't have to deal with people moving up and down the aisles or being crammed between two people I don't know. If I'm travelling with people I know, I don't mind the middle seat as much. What about you, where do you prefer to stay, window, aisle or middle seat? http://www.opentravelinfo.com/node/509
