The person in the window seat asks to get up to leave at the stop before yours. Now you're left lurking in the aisle deciding what to do next since you've only got to go one more stop. You know you can't be a seat hog and just sit back down in the aisle seat with an empty window seat.
Do you scoot over to the window seat and have someone sit next to you only to surprise them and ask to exit a minute later? Do you advertise that the window seat is free and try to get someone to sit down so you can end up back in the aisle seat? Do you keep standing in the aisle hoping that somehow two people will squeeze by you to take up both of the seats? Or do you have a totally different approach that I haven't thought of?
And how would that change if it's just for two stops?
