What’s the thing you’ve done that you regretted most while on a plane/at an airport?

Well…I was about to head to my hometown on a Malaysian Airlines B737-800. That same day, (at around the same time) MH’s first ever A350 touched down and had its first welcome and water salute at the airport, just a couple gates away from where I was. What did I do during that? I went to buy some drinks and hang around on the OTHER SIDE of the terminal.

Hurts my heart till this day.
EDIT: This was at KLIA, Kuala Lumpur

I was at KSAN, waiting for my SWA flight to start boarding, I went to go buy a snack or two. There’s a little bridge you have to go through to get to the main area. When I got my snacks back, I started walking back. I, however, walked through a jetway which looked just like that bridge. Pretty awkward when a gate agent came behind me. He gave me a stern talking to and sent me off. Still gives me chills.

“KLIA”… Kuala Lumpur, Iowa? Can’t belive Malaysian would fly a 738 to the US. Especially a town I don’t think anyone has heard of 😂 I know Kuala Lumpur is in Malaysia lol

Lol it’s an abbreviation of Kuala Lumpur International Airport, like HKIA (Hong Kong International Airport)

I regret that when I left from my flight, MH726. I immediately proceed to the immigration instead waiting for a couple of hours to see the new A350 take off for Penang. Had I was staying at KLIA for awhile, I may be able to see the new A350 takes off. It was happening 2 weeks ago, for exact on 9 December


P.S : We arrived at the same day at KLIA haha

I wasn’t in a plane or the airport, but my regret was not being at the airport when the Breitling DC-3 came to Macau on its world tour.

One thing that I regret is choosing an earlier flight to FL. (I booked the flights in early May)

Basically, for May 27th, there were 3 ISP-FLL flights on Southwest. One left around 6:40 AM, next around 9:35 AM (the one I took) and then another at 11:15 AM.
A few days before the flight, I go to Flightradar24 and look at the plane I would be taking. I got a 737-700 with split scimitars (N556WN), I love them! Out of curiosity, I check the other flights. I was SO MAD when I see that the 11:15 flight that I was about to book, but decided on the 9:35 at the last second, was operated by Tennessee One, my favorite Southwest special livery!
I regret not trusting my gut when it was telling me I should’ve booked the 11:15 flight. But I had the usual great WN experience on my flight with N556WN!

I was flying from KDAL to KMCI, in the winter. With it being like 75°F in Texas, I decided to wear shorts, well I definitely felt the effect when we landed in Kansas City. Blizzard like conditions and anout oh, 0°F outside. (Actually got a little frostbite, but luckily I made it out)

After my flight from Shanghai Pudong ZSPD to Seattle KSEA, I had a layover in Seattle for 20hrs. The next morning when I had to catch my flight to Denver KDEN, I had purchased a Cocacola at a Hudson News store. I left the coke at the counter and I left for my gate. The flight started boarding when I realized I had left my coke there (I was first in line too). I had to get out ot line and run back to the Hudson news store and get my coke. Complete waste of energy and time lol
