Flying to Quito from LAX, which side of plane should I sit?

Hi All,

Sorry if this sounds lame, but does anyone know which side of plane should I sit if I am flying out from Los Angeles to Quito? I am flying with AeroMexico with a short layover in Mexico City.

Your response is greatly appreciated.

I see you had no responses. Did you fly and, if so, which side do YOU think is better?

Depends on the airlines you picked. For Aeromexico, sit on the left side for your connect flight from Mexico City to Quito, you will get to see the volcanoes. =) I checked the flying route and found that out. The aerial view was spectacular. You will see Volcano Pichincha and Ilalo and the valleys.

30 plus years ago I traveled by bus from Peru. Would never have thought to be ready for the view! Thanks for sharing this =)

Since you are flying south I'd say sit on the left side of plane by window so you can view the land, the ocean will be on your right.

I will be flying out of Mexico DF too, so I'm glad you shared this. The opportunity to view a spectacular geographical landmark is something I will consider when selecting my seats.
