Brazilian manufacturer, Embraer Jets (or, 'E-Jets'), is looking to increase their visibility in the U.S. aircraft market. The E-Jet boasts a smaller cabin than popular domestic aircrafts like the Boeing-737 and Airbus-320, holding anywhere from 70-124 passengers. These jets are targeting airlines that aim to fly shorter, more frequent routes.

The smaller E-Jet is a single-aisle plane, with two passenger seats on each side rather than three. This may be a huge plus for travelers who avoid the ever-dreaded middle seat. Which seat do you prefer on a plane?

If you've flown up to half-way across the U.S., the chances are good you've been on a plane made by Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer.

    I almost never use public washrooms and I don't like peoples asses in my face trying to get out to use the washroom. Plus, I like looking at the view outside. Look at this pretty ugly picture I took

    Yeah I don't get to look out tne window, but I also don't have to climb over two peoples legs to go to the bathroom. Pkus when getting snacks from the carts, easy access ;)
  • Leyla 2012/07/07 17:05:33
    I prefer to sit the window and I don't like sitting in the middle or aisle because I feel uncomfortable.

    It would not hurt the airlines to give up one row of seats and make room for peoples legs.. I'm short and I have trouble... would you pay $5 extra to have room to breathe? I would
  • RoseyRhod jewel4a... 2012/07/08 02:01:42
    Totally agree. I'm not the tallest person in the world (just shy of five foot seven) but I feel cramped as heck when flying in coach. If I could afford first class, I would.
  • TiffanyBelle 2012/07/07 15:56:28
    i love watching the earth below me and the clouds. i often take pics and video from my seat of the clouds/tiny city below. it's amazing to be up in the sky and when i travel i prefer the window seat for sure.
  • BIG BAD JOHN R. 2012/07/07 15:56:05
    window, like to look out, helps with my claustrophobic condition.
  • RoseyRhod BIG BAD... 2012/07/08 02:03:11
    You too? I don't even like riding in elevators if I can help it! With the plane I tell myself "I'll get to look out the window!" Then if I can get the flight attendant to notice me, I get me some alcohol as often as possible. Luckily I'm a lightweight, so getting 'faced is pretty easy due to the fact that I rarely drink.
  • TwistedArtisan 2012/07/07 15:48:12
    I'm claustrophobic.

    Aisle, just in case I have to get up.

    None because i don't like flying.
  • Emily1126 The hea... 2012/07/07 17:14:13 (edited)
    Then this question wasn't aimed at you and you shouldn't have answered. "None; I hate flying"was not an option. Now the results will be thrown off thanks to people like you.

    Who cares?? It's only an opinion website and there are others like me who have answered the same thing... i don't like tight spaces, or i'm claustrophobic...so the results are gonna be thrown off either way!
  • Emily1126 The hea... 2012/07/29 18:30:26 (edited)
    The results are thrown off because people like YOU answer the question one way, and comment a different way. Like if the question doesn't apply to you (i.e. You don't even RIDE airplanes), don't answer the damn thing.
    And BY THE WAY I'd reply to your dumbass comment below this, but you're too much of a pussy, and blocked from doing that. Can't handle me? Yeah "get nicked" yourself BITCH
  • The hea... Emily1126 2012/07/30 12:31:53

    Why shouldn't i answer the question? I'm entitled to answer the question like anyone else ....So get nicked...ok?
  • peaches 2012/07/07 11:28:29
    Definitely window. You get the see the view and you aren't either in the aisle dealing with people moving, or in the middle being crammed by someone people on either side (:
  • MissTypist 2012/07/07 10:49:47
    Definitely window seats!
    I love staring out to the world whilst listening to my mp3 player.
    Upbeat songs and fluffy white clouds on a daytime flight, and slow songs and city lights on a flight at night....:)
  • Vieuphoria 2012/07/07 09:44:36
    I've never been on a plane. But when I travel I use a train. I used to always love the window seat on the train. But I get travel sick a lot, that mixed with toilet trips, needing to use the phone etc... Just out of respect for people beside me I take the Aisle seat. Just so I don't have to pester them multiple times just to get past them.
  • Catherine-Grace 2012/07/07 09:40:36
    dont like tight spaces

    Rarely is the view from 40,000 feet boring. You control the shutter and you have a place to lean your head on rather than tilting your chair back and making the back person unconformable. Besides those chairs don't go back very far.
  • littlebuffalo55TBA 2012/07/07 07:06:38 (edited)
    I prefer a window to look out and do not like being bumped into by the aisle traffic!

    The E-Jet has a problem! It's overheads do not take the same size bags. This can be extremely frustrating if while changing planes at a hub you now have to check a bag that you have valuables in.

    Easy in, easy out. My flight home takes 10 hours. I'd rather have to get up for someone than climb over 2 people. It's also nice to be able to walk up and down the asile on those long flights without bugging anybody when I need a stretch. However, on my last flight, I had a boot fall on my head when someone opened the overhead locker.

    I'm kind of an oddball, but I prefer having a bulkhead behind me. On a 747, the economy seats in front of the bathroom still recline. Yeah, a lot of folks hate having a toilet behind them, but it honestly doesn't bother me. I put on my big headphones and just watch movies the whole flight. I once paid for the exit row, but I had a 3 year old kid kicking my seat the ENTIRE FLIGHT from London to Phoenix and his over-indulgent parents did nothing to stop him. I can lean back and get up without bothering anyone and if someone needs me to move to use the bathroom, I'm fine with it because it's a chance to stretch the legs. I can't sleep in a chair anyway.
  • GoatHorns 2012/07/07 06:35:30
    i need to stretch my leg a lot
  • Sebastianchocolatebeargiles 2012/07/07 05:41:53
    The clouds are awesome and if i have a camera with me the better!!!
  • katywon 2012/07/07 05:08:32
    It depends on if its two or three seats. I like the front with no one in front of us. But it looks like a lot of women with children request it. But on a long flight its the best unless you can afford first class.

    because I like to look out, but I also like to be behind the bulkhead. OK?

    I suggest meds for that anger problem. You probably ain't no catch either.

  • littleb... Chris 2012/07/07 07:02:26
    I'm wondering if maybe with that attitude you should be allowed on an aircraft?
  • Noobcake Chris 2012/07/07 10:32:03
    *hides chillpill in seemingly innocuous cupcake, deposits it at Chris's feet and runs*
  • TheLigh... Chris 2012/07/07 15:05:25
    You just called them lazy but also mentioned that they do get up to do things..isnt that contradicting
  • Twisted... Chris 2012/07/07 15:50:59
    Take a chill pill, then go to anger management.
