As someone who flies frequently, primarily between Asia and the USA twice a month minimum, I'm often on a plane from anywhere between 6-14 hours per leg. I prefer the window seat as I sleep on the plane as much as possible. Hate it when I need to go to the loo and the plane is in sleep mode as it is hard to get out of the seat and back in. Exit row seats are great but not always able to snag them. I miss the days of being in Business Class!
If you are flying to Asia 24+ times a year you should have the status to get into business. I fly to Manila or HK from SFO 6 or 7 times a year and it's enough to maintain United 1K. I make it a point to never fly economy on a transpac.
