Airport annoyances

    After traveling this past weekend, a few annoyances that come to mind.

    1) Why, why, why do people stand in line in the terminal to get on the plane that's 20 mintues from boarding as if it's first come, first serve. They seat you by row yet morons still stand in a line like it's a race.

    2) People who upon landing get up and grab their carry-on from the above bin even though they're in row 46 of a 48 row plane and will not be de-boarding for 15 minutes. Sit down and freaking relax.

    3) Airlines who call you and your spouse up to the counter to change your seats with no explanation only to find out that they've moved you out of the exit row so some other pilot and stewardess can sit their for their free ride home. I'm 6'3 so to say I'm a little bitter is an understatement.

    4) When the stewardesses say it is now OK to turn on cellular devices and people frantically scramble to get to their cell phones like it's an oxygen mask in outer space. Jesus people, get a freaking grip!!

    5) The morons that immediately get on their cell phones and proclaim in a boisterous voice, "I JUST LANDED."

    That's all for now.

    Overhead storage. With everyone and their mom carrying one bag, one personal item, three coats, two pillows, a chicken, and stuff from the Duty Free Shop, I line up early to guarantee that I'm not flying for 15 hours with no leg room because my one bag won't fit overhead.

    Especially since I get bumped from the exit/bulkhead seat for pilots' free flights as often as you seem to.

    And the baggage problem is only going to get worse as some airlines (5 of them) charge $25 to check the first bag and $35 to check the second......

    To get around that go to the gate with your bag and if it doesn't fit in the overhead the airline will check it at the gate usually at no charge....

    If you're in row 6 why stand in line like a moron if you don't board till last? The pilots got on the intercom and said coats and other personal items should not be stowed in the overhead storage so that carry-ons would be placed there.

    Sound like a nervous nellie to me.

    It's 2:40 PM, your plane is supposed to take off at 2:45 PM, you haven't started boarding yet, and the official notice still says "2:45 PM ON TIME"

    That's my annoyance, all the crap people feel they need to carry on and the size of their "carry-on" bags. You end up getting stuck behind some person who takes 10 minutes to get all of their stuff packed back up when deboarding. It's the airline's faults for not enforcing the size/quantity limits on carry-ons though.
