Joel on June 30, 2014 at 12:35 pm 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. RadBaron on July 8, 2014 at 11:02 am Flying is a lot more fun when you’re the guy in the very front seat :) Joel on July 20, 2014 at 4:14 pm 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. stjerne on July 9, 2014 at 2:10 pm 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. Joel on July 20, 2014 at 4:16 pm 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.
