27 Airplane Views That Will Have You Fighting over the Window Seat

Nov 8, 2017
Let's face it -- window seats are not the most coveted seats on the plane, especially if you're traveling alone. Working up the courage to ask (and sometimes wake up) one or two strangers to see if you can go to the restroom can be incredibly awkward. Social discomfort isn't the only thing you have to worry about either. Window seats are notoriously cramped and claustrophobic, leaving many passengers to purchase or earnestly hope for an aisle seat. While the 'Window Seat Stigma' definitely exists, these amazing views will make you think twice when you select seats for your next flight.
