Real World Aviation Pet Peeves

What about real world air travel do you find annoying?

For me:

  1. People who bring oversized luggage on small regional jets.

  2. People who take their shoes off in the terminal, and in the plane.

  3. Overweight fees. If someone who is 200 lbs can get on a plane but my 60 pound bag can’t, I call BS.

I’m not bothered by much at all, so it’s:

Automation

Smelly passengers

The fact that the MD-80 and other legends are being retired.

I honestly haven’t flown that much, and I don’t really have any pet peeves, but if I knew more they’d probably be:

  1. Some kid kicking the back of my seat
  2. Screaming baby

Definitely people bringing animals on the plane that aren’t actually service animals. I had a dog lick my ear for an entire flight once
