Window, if it's a 3 seater, that way, if I am on a direct flight, I simply wait for everyone to de-plane. Additionally, I like to take a nap, so it's a great location.

Window. I've flown plenty of times, but no matter how many times I do so I instantly turn into a gingantor goober in that I get the biggest kicks out of takeoff and landings. I'll read, play scrabble on my Ipod, or waste time on the SkyMall magazine, but mostly I'm just sitting there thinking, "Holy Moly! I'm really flying!!!!" I have a plane playlist which is always fun to listen to during flights. I imagine for business travelers there's not much fun left in flying and that's understandable. For me it's a funny, crazy, beautiful thing to be 30-35,000 feet above the world.

I even like airports!!!

Heck, I'M thrilled to be just facing FORWARD and being served food/drink by someone NOT wearing an OD flight suit. Actually some of the ground support equipment we took with us can be quite comfortable once the aircraft is at cruising altitude...

BOT: Aisle seat in the exit row is my favorite for leg room. But I enjoy window seats, too.

My fave is the window seat in the emergency exit row. Either that or anywhere in first class.
