It's a personal taste thing half the time. A lot of ppl (myself included) enjoy being able to just 'do it'. We're forced to be grounded IRL as is, flight is like an expression of freedom, a feeling of freedom, etc, whatever you want to call it really. It's something 'nice' to be able to do, that a lot of us would do IRL if we could.
Similar reasons as to why wings, or wing accessories etc on MMO's are popular... we can't have them for real, at least let us dream in a game.
