In my paper I have two separate longtables that each go across 3 pages in landscape mode.

Which is typographically better (i) include page numbers in the bottom center of these tables (ii) have no page numbers under these tables.

It depends. If the numbers might get confused with the table it might be best to drop the numbers, but if it's a loose leaf document and people might drop the pages, best to keep the numbers so the pages can be put back in order.

Do you have any clue about what journals tend to prefer? – user16208 Nov 7 '12 at 10:56
No. (I've been out of the journal submission loop for some decades:-) – David Carlisle Nov 7 '12 at 10:57
