Which side of the plane?

Which side of the plane should we sit on for the best view on approach to the island? And also on departure?

Thanx in advance!

Left arriving and can't help you with departure. Air Canada I always sat on the left coming and going but this year the plane turned right leaving instead of heading North so I missed seeing the Island one last time. Not sure what route other airlines take.

Is it always left arriving coming in from the US?

The view is breathtaking on the left as you approach Barbados - planes seem to almost land on the beaches, particularly Virgin flights. If you're sitting on Miami/Enterprise Beach, the planes almost seem to touch the top of the palm trees.

I don't recall much of a view on the return flight.

Yes the left side can give a good view of the west side island as the planes seem to come down past Port St Charles as they head for Bridgetown and then on to BGI.

Does the BA flight have cameras so you can see the view on your screen?

You can change your seats - put in your booking number (manage your booking)- and the on the left side it has a section where there is a change seat location -

Just to clarify - we are talking about the seats that are seats A, B, C, correct? (left facing forward?)

We are looking at either JetBlue or American - guessing this makes no difference?
