Best side of plane for views when flying in.

I've been told that sitting on the left side of the plane (that is the left side of the plane when sitting down in your seat facing the cockpit from inside the plane) is the best side of the plane for views when flying into and out of Aruba. Is this correct?

Yes, you'll have the better view on the left.

MOST of the time, that will be your best view...but we have flown in from the opposite direction on a couple of trips (just depends on the wind) so sometimes it can be the right side with the better view.

But I'd say 80% of the time, the left side of the plane is the one you want. :)

That makes sense Amy...haven't been there as many times as you have, and so far the winds have been working with us on the left. :-)

We were shocked the first time we flew in from the opposite direction - but it was fun to see a different view of the island. Thinking back, I think we've only flown in the other way a couple of times...but it does happen once in awhile.
