Gig103: Gothnet: People who take their whole farking suitcase on the plane are annoying because they take up the whole fracking locker and their enormous bag crushes my hat. Your 5 minutes wait to get your bag back out of the hold is not more important than my hat, no sir!

It's not the 5 minutes, it's the $50 round trip, which you are free to cough up for me. I think the best/fairest way to do it would be "one roller bag free", whether it's in the main cabin at the normal carry-on size, or one checked in the hold up to 50lbs. Because I know I'd rather be bag-free going through TSA if it wasn't $100 for my wife and I to do so.



In fairness I didn't know that was a thing they charged for, I only ever fly international (there's little point in domestic flying in the UK). I can see why people would do that now

Carth: letrole: don't like capitalism?

so go setup and run your own airline, comrade

How about we remove the regulation letting only US owned airlines fly between domestic destinations instead? If we could have Cathay Pacific or lufthansa fly us NY to LA i bet other airlines would have to improve their service pretty quick.




I would fly Virgin all day everyday. Id fly Virgin just to have something to do. They do flying farking right.

Haha, even if we all stop flying, Obama will just hand your money to them and raise your taxes to do it, why? Because fark you, that's why! You'll take that dick from your corporate masters and love it whether you like it or not.

The last time I flew, it was right after that idiot tried to set his shoes on fire.

At the time, my hair was long enough to be in a ponytail and I had a beard.

Guess who "randomly" got pulled aside for extra security checks?  I even got pulled aside right when I was about to board the farking plane.

I'm now short-haired and clean-shaven, but I drive everywhere now.

Ah, gotcha - and it's possible UK airlines don't do the same. I do have a correction, it's $25/bag each way, not $50, I was confusing the cargo hold with the cabin. But yeah.
