Does anyone else experience the angst of selecting a seat? Where do you most like to sit on an airplane? Why? What aircraft and airlines have the best economy configruations and amenities?
I usually prefer an aisle seat so I don't have to disturb people in my row when getting out to go to the bathroom or stretch on a long flight. In many ways, the exit and bulkhead rows are best because of the additional leg room they provide, but then often the trays are in the arm rests (awkward) or seats don't recline all the way (especially if there's another exit row behind you). www.seatguru.com has proven useful. When sitting on the aisle, I often feel uncomfortable having to look past my row mate(s) to see out the window. As for airlines, my domestic favorite is Jet Blue because of the spaciousness and Direct TV access. International? Probably British Airways is the best I've flown--haven't had the pleasure of using some of the top-rated Asian airlines.
