For an 8 hour flight it is more comfortable and spacious, and in either case you have to step over someone to go to the loo. So it is much the same in terms of access but is much roomier.
I meant compared to a window seat. Even for an aisle seat I would go for the spaciousness. Either way you are asking someone to move to let you out or are moving to let someone else out.

An interesting sorta-philosophical (but in your case very practical) conundrum!

Economy aisle over Economy window or PE middle (esp QF787) anyday. If PE middle and economy window were the only options then PE middle every time

Depends on airline/plane for me. If it has to be QF it would be PE any day of the week given how badly I perceive they pack you in in Y. If it was SQ it would be much harder, but aisle Y would just edge out PE.
Hi Guest, join in the discussion on
Middle seat PE or aisle/window seat economy?
