Fecking coach riff-raff....do you Suh them in the crotch as they're stretching for the bins?
It's even more fun going upstairs on a 747, except on Air France where they squeeze about 60 coach passengers up there.
There's nothing wrong with coach riff-raff. It's the "tourists" that are the problem. The infrequent fliers who don't know the TSA rules, who don't know where they're going, wander around with their pajama-clad dirty brood of children in the airport, not walking on the moving walk-ways, trying to stuff over-sized crap in to small overheads, and yes, wandering up and down the aisles of the plane, using the wrong lavatories, and making a general nuisance of themselves - those folks are the problem.
Oh, and to Marcus from Delta 1691- just because you didn't bring a book to read on a 4.5 hour flight does NOT mean I want to talk to you during the flight.
The last time I had to fly commercial I got to snag first class for the first time, it was actually pretty cool!
Now this is a solid humble brag. +1 sir.
Flying up front is nice, but it's better when you are on a plane and the hottie next to you is whipping out her titties to feed her kid.
This is a reference to a post from a few months ago in case you missed it.
Are you a pilot, a stewardess, or did you just have to crap really bad?
Landing safely is the best experience I've ever had and will ever have flying.
Set your expectations low and you're likely not to be disappointed.
Don't get too excited, depending on the plane and/or airport you can turn left to get economy as well.

I prefer the right turn exiting the aircraft so I can look at the lower class in the eye while the stewardess holds them back as I deplane.
I love the early morning text message telling me I have a free 1st Class upgrade.
My seats at SS. My driveway in winter.

And finally the piece of shit passenger in seat 34F. And don't even think finding a place to put your small bag.
And yet that won't stop that passenger in 34F from crowding the boarding area 45 minutes prior to departure, or being bitchy when s/he doesn't have a place to put their rollerboard.
my friend would disagree. he enjoys turning right, as he boards the Kellogg jet.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
Hah! My earbuds (whether plugged into anything or not) are the first things do go on when my butt hits the seat!
Maybe they just want to get on the plane and get the fuck home, and have no interest in playing games with retarded airline marketing departments, or considering the feelings of the poor fat fucks in cheap suits playing cock measuring games with their frequent flyer status .
So they should stay the hell out of the way, board when they're called, and it will all take less time so that they can get home. Them standing in the way of us poor fat cock measurers isn't helping the process any!
I know (and I do ).
Jim, you bring solid gold to this board every day.
I've actually gone to the over the ears noise cancelling headphones because ear buds weren't enough of a deterrent for some Chatty-Cathys.
On more than one occasion I've wanted to go with:
"Look, you seem nice. But you're not hot, you're not famous, and you're not interesting. I plan on primarily reading my book, working, listening to my iPhone, and knocking back a few free cocktails. I love that you're passionate about your grandkids, you're excited to be going to your human resources conference, and that you're not outwardly showing signs of some communicable disease. But for the love of all that is holy, please STFU! Thanks."
LOL. Last time I flew I seriously thought a passenger was going to be kicked off because he was arguing with a stewardess. What was the argument about? The overhead bin over this guy's seat was full. He did not like the fact that someone sitting in another row had put their bag in "his" overhead, and he was pissed that he would have to put his bag 2-3 rows ahead of his seat.
Ahead?!? Yeah, that shouldn't be a problem.
Behind gets people worked up. I love the person who bolts from their seat as the last echo of "ding" from the seat belt sign rings, and starts swimming upstream against 150 passengers like some deranged salmon because "I have to get my bag!"
I was born too late to experience it, but all the old films about the elegance of flying in the 50's seem nice. People dressed up in suits and skirts, acting polite, happy to be travelling.
