Does anyone like the middle seat on an airplane. When I can't switch to a window or aisle seat, I get mad. It's like a small jail sentence almost like a punishment. Do any of you like middle seats lol

You are definitely correct. If it were up to me, I prefer to be seated near the aisle since it give me the freedom to move around a bit specially during long flights.

I have the same feeling as you. I like to seat near the window so that I can see beautiful sky, the beautiful clouds which looks so near, so different from what we see on ground. I have air-sick, but when I look out of the window, I forget it and time passes so quickly. So, yes, I don't like the middle seat on an airplane. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy yourself!

I myself am not comfortable having the middle seat. I prefer an aisle seat since I feel I'm not cramped in, and it's easier to go to the toilet. Plus I wouldn't be disturbing the one sitting next to me. It's been a very long time ago since I've sat on a middle seat. Lately I either pay extra for reserve seating or go very early to the airport so I could request for an aisle seat.

To be honest, I haven't ride an airplane yet. haha XD But I know in the future I will definitely ride one too. But if you ask me, I would prefer sitting beside the window so I can enjoy more the view. I want to see the clouds too and sitting in the middle is maybe kind of awkward, you can't really move freely especially if you don't know the person sitting next to you. :D

I don't mind having a middle seat if the people I'm with are my family or friends. Of course if they're complete stranger then it would be terrible for me. If its a short flight, I prefer the window seat. If its a long flight, I usually ask for the aisle seat, that way I can easily get in and out of my seat if I have to go to the toilet without bothering someone. I tend to be shy to bother anyone that sometimes I would hold my pee in if I can and just wait until the person in the aisle wakes up or gets up herself.
