Dress for Success?

Why do middle aged men with not so attractive feet or legs feel the need to wear shorts and flip flops when traveling by air and walking through airports? Seems to be an abundance today. Not cool, imho.

Airplanes are Like Ovens

Hey Delta a plane sitting at the gate in 90 degree temp is going to get hot. Perhaps it would make sense to cool it down before boarding time rather than delaying the flight? Perhaps a little better planning is in order? What say you?

1st Class Upgrade - Not Necessarily 1st Class Passengers

I am amused by travelers who either 1) got a very rare first class upgrade 2) purchased an upgrade before boarding to impress someone or 3) the occasional traveler who splurged. Inevitably they tend to come on board like they own the plane, ignore standard protocols for bag storage etc and generally have a bit of an attitude. I have such a couple sitting across from me. They make things much harder for everyone, especially the flight attendants. Let them wait for that bloody Mary until the plane is fully boarded. Geez, people have some manners.

Decorum is Sometimes Lost on Travelers

Note to the guy sitting in 1c, the rest of the plane doesn't really want or need to know about your accidents and/or medical conditions. Just saying. Tone it down. Was there a full moon last night? This flight is bizarre.

Travel Observation

Travel observation. Uber service is getting worse but taxi service is improving.

Travel Hygiene

Is it too much to ask for anyone traveling on a flying bus to perhaps bathe within, oh I don't know, within a week of travel? I can literally smell this person from 15 feet away. Geez

Another Self Absorbed Traveler

The MD 88 is a full sized aircraft with 3 seats on one side and 2 on the other. The overhead cargo bins are extended a bit on the 3 seat side and can fit most rollerboard bags straight in. I always board with a briefcase that takes little room so I always load it in the shorter bin side. Today, I am also traveling with a nice hat (a stetson stratoliner. non crushable) which I place right on top of my briefcase. I am sitting right across the aisle from them. A guy sitting in the opposite aisle seat comes in with a backpack and a computer bag. Without even looking, he threw his bag on too of mine, crushing my hat. I asked him to watch my hat. He indignantly said, what hat? I got up to show him. He then verbally accosted me a bit asking why I didn't just load it in "my side". I informed this idiot about the sizing of the bins etc but he really just wanted to be a jackass...which he was. That said, this happened in first class so yes there are very rude and inconsiderate people in FC at times. People, pay attention and watch your manners when traveling, please
