    Because you in the latrine looking down into the toilet. Try looking out a window on the side of the fuselage. If you see a wing, try moving forward or aft because the wing will block your view.

    Same reason you can't see ants on the sidewalk when you're on the second floor of a building.

    Well lI have, when taking off and landing.    If the plane is low enough, you'll see traffic.   If the flight is at 30,000 ft +,  you'd be unlikely to see average traffic.

    You can see them when you get low enough before you come in to land.

    You can see them if the plane is low enough, but not if the plane is too high.

    The airliners typically cruise between 30,000 to 39,000 feet.  At that distance the cars are too small to see.  You can see the 18 wheelers and buses, though.
