Air Travel For Dummies. Habits We Hate Or Love

I know this has been posted before (i think twice) but the most recent one was I think three years old so let's bring it back!
We all love air travel I assume, but there is always that one person (or people or airline policies) that sets us off to a bad start to our flight experience. I have some that always makes me want to  banghead 

RUDE PASSENGERS- All those passengers that are true believers of "I hate the airline industry" campaigns and always go about the airport with a big  grumpy  beign rude to check-in agents and flight attendants during flights. Those jobs go too often unappreciated and they don't really need all that hate when it's not their fault they can't accomodate them in the next flight because they missed their original flight etc.

LINE CUTTERS- Surprisingly I've run into my share of these folks. When in line to check in, there is always that one group of "baseball players" or "church groups" or what not that have one or two people standing in line, and just before they reach the front, a whole horde of chaperones and kids cut in pushing the line back another thirty feet.

OUT-OF-CONTROL-CHILDREN- I understand an infant crying over hunger or discomfort and I'll even sympathise with the parents, but when the five-year-old throws a tantrum in the gate or at 35,000 ft and you know you are stuck with nowhere else to go, it really makes my blood boil.

IMPATIENT PASSENGERS- These guys are always attentive at the gate. As soon as they see small movements from the staff at the gate they mill over to the front of the gate to be the first to board. Surprisingly, I've seen this often even in assigned seating flights. People: you are about to be up there in the plane for a very long time, what is the hurry in being the first in there if you will be urging to get up and stretch five minutes into the flight!!! WHAT'S THE HURRY???

"CASUAL" FLYERS- This is my biggest peeve! I know you don't have to rent a tux for your flight to Las Vegas with your friends but those who go to the extremes of wearing athletic shorts, sleeveless shirts, and sandals with their hat backwards to go to the beach or wearing fleece sweats for overnight flights and tangled hair just make me MAAAD!!!  gnasher  I'm not asking for the MIlan fashion show up there, but whatever happened to "glamorous flying". I like to see the business suit, the professional skirt and what not on adults, and something casual but elegant for the non-business traveller. I always fly with an untucked stripped polo shirt, and my jeans with sneakers. I'm not asking for anything more or less. Let's bring beauty to flying back starting with attire!

So that's my rant on what I hate. I'll later on put what I love about flying. I want to know what YOU like and hate about your trip to the airport.

Cheers!

Quoting Ayubogg (Thread starter):
"CASUAL" FLYERS

i agree on all of your accounts, esp. this one i can't stand it when there is that guy that sits next to you who didn't shave, He's wearing that muscle shirt but really he doesn't have any muscle to show other then the hairy arm pit where he forgot to put on deodorant then he wears shorts with jandels and yes... the hat... even at school I dont get these kids that wear the big hats backwards or to the side, and i can't stand it even more on the airplane.
If Im packing light I'll wear a long sleeve shirt, nice jeans, and my Sketcher leather shoes, if im not as tight on what I can bring, or if Im traveling internationally (esp. when by myself) I wear a button-up shirt with slacks or dress pants, and depending on what the circumstances are a tie and a nice Line-7 jacket/sports coat.

I also can't stand people that cut in line. My flight from AKL-LAX was late arriving one time and then the business class carousel was broken so all the bags were coming out of one carousel which slowed it up for everyone, we were all late for connecting flights yet this one guys decides that he is special "My flight leaves in 20 minutes, I have to cut in front of you." the only problem is he still had to go through immigration and change terminals and such... no way he would make it. It also didn't help that on this occasion he had cut line in AKL as well. well luckily some joker in line piped up and said "bugger off, we're all in the same boat, you wont make your flight, get in the back of the line."

I think you covered the majour topics there. Although I must add that I hate it when airlines dont allow me into the lounge because Im under 21... long story, but to make it short when ever I try to get into the AS board room by myself they wont let me since Im under 21 and they have a bar. which is understandable, but my argument to that is any international airlines lounge I've tried to go into (both in America and outside) have always let me in regardless of my age and almost all of them have alcohol just sitting in a chiller for anyone to grab where as at AS there is an actual server behind a bar so I wouldnt' even be able to get any alcohol to start with. So I think when I walk in with a paid first class ticket, I hold an MVP card and I am dressed properly and over the age of 16 that it is fine.

Thanks for the lead post.....I do apx 100-130 legs a year. I also loath the Richard Simmons look in flip-flops.
Sitting next to or being in line next to some athletic dink in a tank-top, gym shorts and flip-flops is my pet peeve
on your topic. I feel someone should hand this guy some Right Guard in public and embarrass the hell of of him and
his traveling companions. Maybe he will get the message that shorts and a golf shirt with Reeboks can work better in public..

One thing I don't get is when everyone rushes out of their seat when the plane pulls up to the gate only to find themselves crammed together standing in the aisles for a long time. This especially dumb when sitting in the rear of a single aisle aircraft. Often I'll just sit & wait until the line moves or when just about everyone gets off.

Yes, people are very stupid. They don't realize that if they do that, they will get crammed together. I also stay until everyone is off. I do that: 1) to get my safety cards, and 2) to talk to the pilots and get them to fill out my missing info in my flightlog.

People that use their cell phones right until the plane leaves. It all annoys me, especially the ones that talk VERY LOUD so everyone else can hear them.

People that think they are better and more important than everyone else.

Crying and screaming kids. Well, the ones that have parents that don't do anything about it.

People that are just loud on flights.

I'd like to restate what the original poster has said. People that crowd around the gate when the gate agents just begin boarding... Alright, it's ok if your Zone 2. But when I am trying to figure out where the line starts when I am trying to board in Zone 4 and I see Zone 9 boarding passes all over the place, you just need to take a seat and come back up in 5 minutes when it's your turn.

Airlines should make a policy on this. ^ If I were a gate agent, I'd strictly enforce it.

These are what really peeve me off, both for being a passenger and from being a check in/gate agent:

CROWDED GATES: It really annoys me when I'm doing a pre-boarding announcement and 3/4s of the flight gets up and stands in a line at the gate! Sit back down! What's the rush? We aint gona leave without you, well unless your nowhere in sight!

DEMANDING PASSENGERS: I really hate it when (elite) passengers tell me to put a priority tag or they bag or a short connection sticker! I can quite clearly see from my set if your elite or require a short connection sticker, I don't need to be told otherwise!

PEOPLE STANDING UP BEFORE WE ARRIVE AT THE GATE: Yet more people rushing about, like I always say, never in history has a passenger beaten an aircraft to the gate, so don't try now! Sit down, chill out, enjoy the ride!

DUMB PASSENGERS: People that don't know where they are going, when they stood right under a big sign telling them exactly where to go! Can't people read signs anymore?! I know some airports may be big and daunting, but it aint that hard to read a sign now is it!

*RANT OVER FOR NOW* (until I can think of more!)

That is also another one for me! Especially when the flight attendants have to remind them not to get up until the plane has come to a complete stop AND the seatbelt light has been turned off.

Regarding the CASUAL FLYER, It's more notable than anywhere else I've been to here in the Pacific Northwest, USA. I fly out of PDX and EUG most of the time, and my last flight was LHR-EWR and everyone there was fine, some hours later, EWR-PDX and a good 60% of passengers were like this! What a shame really.

PEOPLE WHO GIVE GATE AGENTS A HARD TIME.
I've seen grown businessmen and women act like 4 year olds when they can't get an aisle seat or an upgrade.
Also people that get made at gate agents when the plane is delayed.
One time I was waiting for a flight out of JFK on United's P.S. flights. It was raining like crazy outside and our flight was delayed. A passenger asked the gate agent why there was a delay.   Wow!

Oh it gets worse. Another passenger that was flying standby told a gate agent that she had to get on the flight to LAX because she had to attend the Oscars that evening!  Wow!

Another of my pet peeve's! I have a guy who is PE Flying Blue and the first things he says to me when he comes to the counter are "hi how are you? Is the flight full? Are you upgrading me today?"

I will F%&*ing call your name if you have been upgraded, ok! Regarding not getting a prefered seat, I do seem to remember that my airline has internet check-in available -30 hours to departure, use it and get the seat you want! Dont moan to me when I have to re-open the flight to check you in when you've turned up late and got a middle seat!

ELITE PASSENGERS WHO THINK THEY CAN CHECK IN ON THEIR ELITE CARDS: Really winds me up when I ask for a passport and I get (insert airline) elite card instead, and when I ask for their passport again, they look at me and say "oh yeh!" You'd think these people would be sorted and know they score, but sometimes they make just as stupid mistake as a one-off traveller!

I've tried the "sit and wait" thing, and actually had a woman stand in the aisle behind my row and hold up the line waiting for me to get up. Instead of just following the herd out of the plane she held everyone up and got huffy when I waved her on. She insisted I get off the plane before her, and as a result everyone else behind her got mad at me too. I guess she figured if I wasn't going to participate in the traffic jam, she would create enough traffic jam for both of us.

My pet peeve: when the FA announces during taxi to the gate that "due to our late arrival there are a couple of passengers in the back of the plane with very quick connections, so please let them come to the front before you get up." How many aisle pax do you think stayed seated so the couple in the back could make their connection? If you guessed "zero", you are correct. And before you say "the whole plane had tight connections", it was a DL flight landing at ABQ, not a DL hub and they usually don't connect passengers there.

It's not really a pet peeve persay, but my favorite passengers to watch are the people who are in such a hurry to get off the plane as soon as it arrives at the gate by standing up immediately and even trying to move forward a few rows before others get up and get in their way. This is especially enjoyable at non-hub airports where nobody needs to make a connecting flight. Then, you invariably arrive at baggage claim to find that these people have staked out their spot right at the place where the bags emerge on the conveyor belt...and by the time you have your bags and are on your way out of the terminal, they are still standing there waiting looking like their head is about to explode due to the horrific experience of standing and waiting for a few extra minutes.

Biggest pet peeve is probably the people who stand right at the front of the boarding line, then spend several minutes taking their sweet time to stow their various pieces of carry-on all around their seating area while totally holding up the boarding process behind them.

A great many airlines can and do identify pax with their FQTV cards - it is an acceptible FOID by which to index and retrieve the electronic ticket. Maybe the system you use doesn't allow this, but most do.

It really annoys me that airlines think that zone or row-by-row boarding speeds things up. It also annoys me that airlines blatantly lie about boarding times, flag a flight as "boarding" when it isn't even close, and make people hang about the gate for 20 minutes while they fanny about doing apparently unnecessary and pointless things. GET PEOPLE ON THE PLANE !!! IN ANY ORDER !!! IF YOU BOARDED EARLIER YOU WOULDN'T HAVE TO THINK OF STUPID SYSTEMS TO GET PEOPLE ON THE PLANE QUICKER.

"CASUAL" FLYERS-

Who cares what anyone wears on the flight. If you fly a lot, you recognise that an aircraft is a fundamentally uncomfortable environment, and dressing as comfortably as possible makes perfect sense.

I agree that stinky people are a problem, I was sitting in front of one MUC-ARN the other day, peee-uuuwwwwww - I had to point all my air vents backwards on full blast to keep his pong from flowing forward (that seems to work by the way, creating an air shield  Smile )

I disagree. It's no business what other people wear on flights. If i want to wear flip flops, ripped jeans, an old t-shirt and a baseball cap when i'm flying First, i will (unlikely, but i'm talking hypothetically) because I've paid the same as you for the seat.

I didn't think this one would be annoying, but i experienced it on a American Express (or whatever it is...) flight between IND and ORD. My family (3 of us) had seats assigned, but they were all window seats in row 4, 5 and 6. I had row 5, and i sit down and just read my book i had. Then, some fancy lawyer type saw me sat there and must've thought "....oh shit, a KID". He sits down, doesn't even introduce himself (Both my brother's seat mate and my dad's both introduced themselves. My brother's seatmate wouldn't stop talking (not in a bad way, my brother enjoyed it). My brother is 12, this guy was probably mid 50's. Pretty cool guy... anyway, Mr. Joe Lawyer ignores me for the whole flight, doing some stuff on his notepad and a big binder thing (If you've flown a EMB145, you'll know the tray tables aren't the biggest).

We land, he whips out his phone, starts saying "blah blah, i'm in Chicago, what's for dinner" type of crap. Then, he asks me: "Ok, where did we land?" I just sat there thinking "WTF". He didn't know if he was in Midway, or O'Hare. IT SAYS ON THE TICKET!!!!

Right, I have to agree. I don't understand everyone's beef with people who dress the same way they would in any other normal or non-formal situation. I'm all about wearing shorts or jeans and a t-shirt when I fly, and although I don't own a pair of flip-flops, they seem to be the norm these days. Unless you're wearing something completely inappropriate for being out in public, I don't see anything wrong with dressing casually when you fly. Like said above, it makes perfect sense.

True, but it's always courteous to at least say hello or something like that. I ALWAYS do that, because you never know who you'll ending up sitting next to. And of course, if it's an attractive woman, then introducing yourself goes without saying. Big grin

In my experience, priority tags are very seldom a guarantee of anything - it depends on the airline, the airport, whether you have a connection, whether the connection is online or interline, there are endless variables - generally they seem to work about 50% of the time (i.e. priority bags coming off the belt first).

I don't think you can really ask people to be "presentable" when flying as it is up to them what they wear, but I do agree with that air travel used to be a lot more "classy" then it is now days.

The thing I hate the most is the type of passenger that just goes on and on at the check-in staff blaming them for traffic on their way to the airport, for example, and then just doesn't listen to the staff and makes un-resonable demands on them!! Grrrrr!!
