Seems pointless to me, because > if you can't see where the wings are, how are you going to see the ice? Consider a plane full of passengers. Consider that the wing is at an angle to the fuselage. If you choose the wrong window, the angle may not be "right" and you won't see well. This triangle may be a subtle way to let the pilots only disturb one set of passengers and not have to have to disturb many rows to try each window to see which one has the right view.
