If it’s a daytime flight, you need to remember the first law of the luminaries: the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. And unless you are a sunflower or Vitamin D deprived, I assume you would like to avoid sunlight streaming on your face at 38,000 feet. So if you are flying north in the morning, choose the left side of the plane because the sun will be on the right. And if it’s late afternoon, choose the right side because the sun would have moved west, to the left side. Reverse the strategies if you are flying south. If you’re flying east or west, I’m not really sure what you should be doing. Please consult your local astronomer.
