I love flying.
I only have two cities I fly between, and Southwest has a direct flight for ~$100/way. Free bags, too. I get to the airport an hour or so before the flight, and a couple hours later I'm there. Sure beats driving or Amtrak.
When I get there, I grab my book and pillow and throw the rest in the overhead compartment, so I'm left with all the legroom I could want. And with free advance web check-in, finding a window seat near the front isn't usually that hard.
