When flying over places like these, I wish I have my DSLR with me. This one snapped with my camera phone:
one trick to minimize reflection from the windows is to actually touch your lens against the window and snap. this way your lens is perpendicular to the internal window the only chances of reflection is from the external window panel liao.
if u want clear pic, its best to be seated forward of the wings. sat behind the wings during my flight to london, my shots the lower half is slight blur compare to the top. reason is the jet trail from the engine.

According to my friend who is an air-stewardess..
There's no strict rules restricting photography on-board the S.I.A plane BUT different airlines varies.
Just try not to use flash when taking photos of people and people might be affected and thus, compliant.
It's best not to do it while taking off and landing (due to safety reasons).
So my dslr was stuck up there when we were landing and i saw the most beautiful sunset flashed by me. I wished i had a compact camera to put in my pockets then...
Unfortunately windows in the cockpit does not have shades and there was this time I actually inquired with the pilot during a flight test on why is there a lighting strike in the vicinity every regular interval. Silly me.
Bird eye view of the town
Mountain & hills (er not sure if this is on plane or on bus )
... in some airlines, no camera was allowed to hold by hand during landing and takeoff.
