Yeah, I’m not a fan of flying either. ;)
BTW, the bathroom door was icing on the cake!
Thanks Bill. I generally don’t even get out of my seat when I’m on a plane. Though, one of my hops on Wednesday is 5hrs, so that butt-plant policy may have to change.
Flying is a lot more fun when you’re the guy in the very front seat :)
I agree. This last vacation we weren’t front row, but we were exit row, which allowed for plenty of leg room. I’m a little over six feet tall. Throw in some lower back issues and it was nice to stretch out without leaving my seat.
Actually, flying without stupid tsa was more fun. You missed showing the worst/best part of flying the free chest x-ray and the check for athletes foot. Seriously, I hate the TSA. They have never, repeat never stopped one terrorist. Passengers have stopped terrorists but not the TSA. I think every flight should have an undercover air marshal. Cheaper than the TSA. The airlines finally strengthened the cockpit doors, which made it harder to break into a locked cockpit.
I have given up flying until the TSA changes their policies. Baggage fees are just the icing on the cake.
Thankfully, when I travel I usually just have carry on luggage. The few times I have checked a bag (in Canada) I have not been charged for it. As for the TSA, I just show up prepared and I’m through security in no time. I really don’t have any issues with airlines taking steps for a safer flight. If anything, I feel guilty about the carbon footprint of flying.
