FriarReb98: So let me get this straight. The FAA won't let stewardesses stand during takeoff & landing...but they want customers to????\this has as much chance of happening as me pulling up the sheets & finding a naked redhead lying underneath

AverageAmericanGuy: How about they just make the lardasses pay more?No offense to you guys.

Foxxinnia: Please just give us anesthesia. No one wants to be awake on a plane. Literally every problem will be solved if they just knocked out every passenger before the flight.

Literally every problem will be solved if they just knocked out every passenger before the flight.Airline passengers should all be given Vicodin./I had to fly on Vicodin a couple of times after an operation.//The cramped seating, fat and loud neighboring passengers, seatback reclined in my face, and screaming children in the next row didn't bother me at all.///God I miss that miracle drug.
syrynxx: Candygram4Mongo: //why are they?Fuel costs are the number one operating expense of an airliner, and they are constantly looking for ways to reduce weight, increase fuel efficiency, or fit more paying passengers on a plane all other factors equal. Or fees - Spirit Airlines earned over 30% of its revenue from fees, I think.I also place some blame on price-based search engines. Mom pops her flight dates into Kayak or Priceline or whatever, picks the lowest flight, then gets hit at the gate with first-checked-bag fees, carry-on fees, fees to pick a seat with more legroom, fees to board earlier, and suddenly her $159 flight is over $200.But I wouldn't fly an airline that had seats like this. I hate flying so much I spend most flights in pain praying for the plane to crash.
Outlaw2097: dont like it? pay more for your seat and get more exactly the same seat as the cheaper fare, sucker.
ReapTheChaos: Just because someone did a study doesn't mean it will ever happen. No way in hell the FAA or the airlines would ever consider something like this.
syrynxx: I can't think of anything that would make me hate flying more. Even having my testicles molested by the TSA can be a pleasant experience if they finish off with a quick peck on the cheek.
teenage mutant ninja rapist: I geuss airlines will not be happy until a group of passengers actually tears a pilot to peices with their bare hands.
dukeblue219: teenage mutant ninja rapist: I geuss airlines will not be happy until a group of passengers actually tears a pilot to peices with their bare hands.Don't buy tickets on the airlines that do this. The airlines don't WANT to make the experience terrible for the customers. They really don't -- they're driven by profit, sure, but they'd be happy to make that profit on expensive tickets too. But so long as everyone buys tickets by going to Kayak or Travelocity and blindly picking the lowest fare, the only way to make any money is by undercutting the competition. As much as folks like to complain about air travel, if they buy $250 Spirit ticket over a $325 United ticket, well, what do we expect to happen?
