I have always been a really big fan of isle seats when I fly. Like everyone else in the world, I hate being crammed in an airplane, and if I can have a little extra space while the drink cart isn’t smashing into my leg, I’ll take it.
But on my way to Haiti 2 weeks ago I was put in a window seat and the view made the small amount of space I had totally worth it. It turns out there are islands everywhere in the waters between Miami and Port-au-Prince. That plus a beautifully clear day equals cool pictures.
Next time I’m going to try and sit in a west-facing window seat when I fly during a sunset. I didn’t this time around, and I regretted it after seeing the view through someone else’s window. The colors you see from the air are amazing.
On a different note, American Airlines is a QUALITY airline. Not only were my flights comfortable and semi-on-time, but the flight attendants are wonderful and the pilots are the best in the world. Did you hear that? The pilots are top-notch! Have I ever mentioned that my Father-in-law is a pilot for American Airlines? The only downside is they give you the weirdest food combinations ever when you fly to Haiti:
