Here I am, seat 23-C, aisle seat, on the left side the airplane (8 PM flight from Boston to DC.) My right arm is unobstructed in the aisle. I don't really care how far back I am on the plane, the whole plane gets there about the same time.
On a train, I prefer a window seat, facing forward. On a double deck train, I prefer the view from the upper level.
On the metro subway trains, it is more complicated. On the Yellow line, inbound, I prefer the fourth car from the front, middle of the car next to the seats that face the aisle, east side of the train, facing either way. Outbound, the same seat on the first car of the train. The car placement gives me the easiest changes of trains. The middle of the train, give me the most room because of inward facing seats near the door, the east side of the train give me the best view of the airport as we pass through. When I first moved to DC, I would grab any car, any seat. Over time I have figured out what seat is most comfortable has the best view, and gives me the easiest changes.
Yes, I have spent time figuring this all out.
Do you have a favorite seat?
