I woulda told the flight attendant to to stow in the overhead bin!For both flights and rail travel, I have started to pay attention to the location of the sun, especially when it is low in the winter. This started because I had a flight attendant tell me that I needed to keep my shade down on a flight because the sun was shining in the window. I now book on whichever side the sun won't be shining directly into.
That said, my favorite roomette on a Viewliner is #1. This is because you can get a glimpse out of the other side because of the window in the corridor that is in front of roomette #2. My favorite bedroom is B, but this is only because it is the one that usually has the couch facing forward - at least on the routes that I tend to ride. I wouldn't have a preference otherwise.
I'm not fussy when it comes to Superliners. If traveling solo, I don't mind bedroom A because there is no door connecting it with another room. But it's not a strong preference.
I've seen them in #1, #10, #14 and none in my car but she was covering two Sleepers and I guessed camped out in the other.I thought the sleeper attendant was in roomette 1. I seem to recall seeing a uniformed person in that roomette the last 1 or 2 times I took the train. It was a Superliner. Can someone please edify me?
