I had an early flight this morning. My seat is in the rear of the plane, a full sized MD88. Because of my frequent flyer status I am able to board with first class.
So, I settle in and watch the rest of the boarding process from a good vantage point.
Toward the end of the process, after most of the overhead bins are already filled, along come a Millenial with an overpacked carry on. He is dressed in straight skinny white jeans that needed a wash, a pullover sweatshirt emblazoned with NYC and wearing knitted headgear that covered what I can only assume is long hair down his back.
Of course, there was no apparant room for his large piece of luggage. But he found his own solution. He literally moved other passengers luggage and actually removed a smaller bag to cram his in and then handed the smaller bag to the other passenger sitting below and asked them to hold it or stick it under their seat.
Unfortunately he then sat down beside me in my exit row. He literally reaked of body odor.
I cannot get over just how self absorbed and selfish some people are when traveling.
Millenials, and everyone else, have some pride and dignity. Take a bath before traveling on a flying bus and show some respect for others.
