She misunderstands. I'm hanging out in the aisle so that I don't have to come into physical contact with the person next to me even though we're both perfectly normal sized. I'd really appreciate her not bumping into my elbow or knees.

Pretty much. I sometimes try to hang my entire body into the aisle to avoid contact with whatever I've been strapped next to.

I'm a proportionally correct 6' 3" and the seats are too narrow. At least on the aisle I don't have to jam up on the person next to me. I'd really appreciate her not bumping into my shoulder or elbow with her leg, thighs or, most importantly, that friggin' cart.

Now wait just one damned minute, subby... I pay an extra fee to sit in that aisle seat, and I f*cking well should be able to derive some additional benefit from that.

I've always loved that photo. I swear you can see the cabin deforming downward in the center. Or maybe that's just his gravitational pull warping light particles past the camera lens.

Every airline seat thread I say the same thing: they should have a few seats set aside for those of us at either extremes of body size. I'm barely 5' and under 90lbs and don't use a full seat's worth of space. I would be fine sitting in a smaller one, given that I was sitting with other small people who didn't overflow their seats into mine. The space saved could be used to add a few larger seats for people in your situation.

I know they'll never do it for any number of logistical reasons, but still.

I can't remember the last time I saw a flight attendent worth touching...

The article has it backwards. When I lived in China I got molested ALL THE TIME by flight attendants, female security guards, etc.

It was awesome.

Wait, this was singapore air?

I take back my previous skycandy comment.

Talented, pretty, smart, and amazingly gracious flight crews.

If everyone flew SA once in their life, the other airlines would be in serious trouble.
 
2012-09-20 05:19:08 AM
Amy (not her real name), who is in her 30s and has been with SIA for more than five years, said the passenger would rest his elbow on the armrest whenever a stewardess walked past him.

"He would bend his arm so that his elbow protruded from his seat. My instinct told me that it wasn't accidental. So I alerted my colleagues to watch out for him," said Amy, who also informed her immediate supervisor.

"We observed him closely and noticed that his elbow would protrude only when a stewardess walked past him. He didn't do that to the stewards."


so in other words, if you're bisexual, have a go at it. because apparently they only care if you're gay

No, I'm the kind of guy who likes to go through the TSA line multiple times when I fly so I can casually get my junk touched by a fat, sweaty, middle-aged bald guy.
 
2012-09-20 05:33:24 AM
Really? Who gets pleasure out of an elbow brushing against the outside of the thigh? Also, why would you want to piss off the people who are in the best position to make your flight as comfortable as possible? They bring you the snacks and beverages and the pillow and blankets. Why piss them off? Why risk being arrested? And if you are that hard up for contact, well, you are on your way to Singapore. Spend $40 and get yourself some prostitute to blow you.

I was flying last night on domestic airline in the Middle East last night. The seats were extremely small, and I had an aisle seat, so of course my arm was resting on the arm rest. I was sitting in the very back row.

The flight attendant, who quite coincidentally, was about a 7, for some reason started pushing the cart up hill before the plane had even begun to level off. Then she decided to squeeze around it to pull it up hill rather than push it, so she went to squeeze past me and the cart. The plane lurched (we were still freakin climbing!) and boom, she's half sitting in my lap with her knees stuck between the cart and the arm rest.

If I hadn't heaved her back up and around the cart, she's probably still be stuck in my lap.

I'd be fine with you sitting on my lap.

But if I suggested it, they'd get all modesty-outragey.

The "friendly skies" just aren't what they used to be.

The aisles on Singapore Airlines are obviously way too wide. Whenever I sit in an aisle seat my shoulders touch every person walking down the aisle.

You ain't nothin' but a waitress in the sky
 
2012-09-20 08:51:20 AM
I never got to feel the fine caress of tight asian ass on my elbow. The only thing I got for have the audacity to have my elbow poking 2 inches out into the aisle when I fell asleep was having a drink cart abso-farking-lutely rammed into my elbow like they where siegeing a farking castle, causing an extraordinary amount of pain, and when I pointed out they nearly smashed my damn elbow cap (I swear my seat had scrapes down the side) I was told "Don't put your body parts in the aisle then".

And then when I got my drink I was told they were out of Coke. But they 'found some more' for the guy behind me.

I don't know what the fark I did to piss off the sky waitress (other than have my elbow 2 inches into the aisle). I got on the plane and went to my seat. Never interacted with her. But damn, she had it in for me.

(Fark you, Delta)

I usually get aisle because I don't set a preference in my work travel profile. Makes getting up easier, but accept that your entire flight will be accepting impacts from one of two sources: ass or cart.

To some, a tap on the back or a touch on the waist is considered molest.

If you feel you've been molested after someone taps you on the back, you've got some issues you need to be discussing with a therapist...
