Which side of the plane for the best view?

Jump to last reply

(Hope I'm not duplicating an earlier thread.)

Are there landing approaches to an airport where you know there's a good chance one side will be more scenic than the other -- e.g., which side of the plane on the most common approach to ORD will give you the best view of the Chicago skyline?

I know that approach patterns vary with wind, route from your point of origina and, sometimes, time of day. But some patterns are less variable than others, and I know, for example, that you are most likely to get a good view of Mt. Rainier coming into SeaTac from anywhere east if you're on the left side.

Anyone have similar recommendations for NYC (LGA and JFK) Boston, NYC, Miami, Caribbean islands, Hawaii, London, etc. etc.?
