Long haul flights, window or aisle seat? I guess I have answered the question by scrolling through my camera roll, not one picture of any trip is looking down the aisle of a plane at the sunburnt legs, toilet queues and mothers singing to crying babies. I’d do however, have some lovely shots from the window.


I’m travelling on an Airbus A380 800 from London to Sydney via Singapore for the first time and to get myself in the mood, I logged in and looked at the available seats. There wasn’t many. I did check on this great site called Seat Guru which is a big help finding which the preferred seats in almost all aircraft and airlines and the ones to avoid. I highly recommend a browse before flying, if you care that much


I looked down at the seating map and wondered who I would be sitting next to. The first 13 hours to Singapore will be a window seat. The next 7 hours flight is an aisle seat on the upper deck. It’s fascinating to consider how many awesome people we must sit next to from time to time, conversations wasted as we indulge in our own personal interests that keep us from chatting to our fellow passenger.

Have you ever sat next to someone with an interesting story, or try to start conversation? I’m sure I’ll have plenty of time to gain one on this flight.

    1. That’s awesome! A shame however that you lost it, I guess losing it is better than not receiving it at all 🙂

  1. Great pictures! I usually sit by my family on plane rides :b But one time we flew over a thunderstorm, and we could see the lightning flashes below… it was super cool.

    1. Thank you 🙂 if you are sitting next to family I guess the seat location doesn’t matter too much haha. My first ever flight was through a thunderstorm, thankfully I slept the whole way through. I don’t think I would have enjoyed it too much!
