We asked this question on Facebook and our readers have given us a variety of astute, well-thought-out responses:
“Window seat people — we’d be better rested for the fight,” said Liz.
“Window people because as you can see above, the aisle folks don’t comprehend things properly,” said Andre, another window-supporter.
“Aisle seat people!! We have more room to move so are warmed up for the fight!!! Window people are all balled up and sleepy,” said Linda, with an excellent point for the aisle-seaters.
Then things started to get personal.
“And what’s with all of this noise from the aisle introverts about beating us up and kicking us. You can’t stand properly because you’re legs have been hit umpteen times from the drinks cart,” Andre commented. “Window seat people, because we have something to back us up,” said Mike. “WHY ARE WE FIGHTING???…? How terrible would it be if EVERYONE wanted the SAME,” said Susan, clearly the all-caps voice of reason.
Shari chimed in with some psychological profiles: “[Window seat people] plan in advance, know their objectives and have a definite winning attitude.” “[Aisle seat people] always want to talk, talk and open up the overhead and mess with getting items constantly beneath the seat.… Also, they grumble when we give our cup over to them when the flight attendant is picking up the extras before we begin our descent.”
