re: Time to rant about flying


Not that anyone cares about the subject of the OP, but I'll add a few to the notion of just simply being more considerate of people:

Please stand 6-10 feet back from the luggage conveyor, and only step forward if it's time to get your bag. It almost doubles the surface area to grab bags and no has to ask anyone to move.

Please don't crowd the door to the plane, just wait for your section/row to be called. The plane isn't going to leave without you.

Please don't fly with any child less than 3, drive or make relatives come to you.

Please do not remove your shoes while on the plane

Please do not think of the divider as an arm rest. It's not something to fight over, it's a boundary setter.

Please do not tilt your seat back, It is a complete invasion of the person's space behind you and is extremely inconsiderate.

Please use the restroom prior to getting on the plane, everyone knows that when you go on a plane you burden those around you.

Please dress appropriately. You do not need to wear,6 bracelets, watch, 7 rings, knee high boots, etc....or other things that make it difficult for you to keep the line moving.

Also please, never ask me to change my seat, I picked this one for a very specific purpose.

Seriously? You can frick yourself if you are offended by me moving 3" into your space. Come to think of it, it is my space if my stationary seat can move into that area. Quit looking into my space, it's an invasion.

Protip: Get Global Passport. In some airports you get your own security line, can leave all your clothes/jewelry on, only need to throw your bags on the belt, then just breeze through.

I walked into SFO today, through security, and in the Admirals Club in literally 2 minutes.

Also, on AA if you're Platinum, you can ask them to block seats next to you.

Protip 2: It's worth the yearly fee to get the Amex Platinum just to get into the airline clubs...if you travel a lot.

I don't mind AA. Out of BR it seems to be more expensive most of the time. Now that delta has two hubs out of it, it makes it easier to stick with them; otherwise, I'd consider. United can still EAD.

when you sit in your seat, how far away is your face from the back of the seat in front of you?

The seat moves back 8.5"




so are you just inconsiderate, or do you just still not understand how you are being inconsiderate?

Global Entry...and you don't need it if you have elite status on an airline. You share the same line.

If the airport has TSA Pre Check you do. GE is only valuable for returning back stateside through customs.

Guess I'm the inconsiderate person manipulating my seat into some position the seat is not designed for.

Btw, typing on a laptop is annoying as frick. Please stop.

re: Time to rant about flying


You are incorrect.

And I know this because I've used my global entry not only today to get through tsa pre check, but also through lax, so...

When you sign up for ge you can also get tsa pre

I usually slip a small bag of pot into the gray plastic tray of someone near me, right before it goes through security, if they are pissing me off!
