Probably a terminal case of, "I'm more important than anyone else." I'd rather have a seat in the front half of the plane, especially if I have a tight connection, but the best trip I ever had was with the rowdy bunch in the last three rows. I do like an aisle seat on the left of the aisle. I have a small issue with my right knee and if I sit on that side of the aisle, I can stretch it out occasionally. I also have a problem with motion sickness and don't ever look out the window. I can manage it if I do (and don't do) certain things, looking out a window is a big "don't do!"
