10 Photos That Prove The Window Seat Is Definitely The Best

There's a reason shutterbugs are drawn to it.

Look, we know it’s contentious and both options have their benefits, but we’re calling it – the window seat totally trumps the aisle. The window seat is the aperture to the world, giving you a stunning vantage point for all of the landscape, cityscape and cloud formation #viewfromtheplane Instagram shots you could ever desire. Plus, no matter how often you fly, there’s still some kind of romantic wonder to watching the world unfurl 30,000 feet below you.

We’ve gathered up some excellent photos taken from the plane window to prove our point.
