I fucking hate flying
I hate flying. I want to bomb airplanes. Not people. I don't want anyone getting hurt I just want to destroy the sardine tins so that they never hurt anyone again. I want to see the shattered, melted, broken corpses on commercial airliners littering the runways of every airport in the world.

Then I want to see every airline executive shoved into a KennelAire and forced to ride in the cargo bay for the rest of their lives. I want them all forced to sit together in economy class with no air conditioning and fed dog food. I want them to have to run between the two furthest gates in every airport in the world at top speed and, when they miss their connection, I want them electrocuted and waterboarded until the next flight is available. Then I want them to do it all over again.

Is it really so hard to make a plane comfortable?

I don't give a shit about being fed or watered. I don't care if the plane is clean. I don't care if you charge me to check my luggage. All I want, all I beg for, is a comfortable seat for the flight. One where I am not jammed shoulder to shoulder with a complete stranger. One where my knees don't hit the seat in front of me. One where I actually have enough room to use my laptop on the plane.

What did you dumbasses *think* would happen when you started charging to check baggage? Of Course! People are bringing full sized suitcases as carryons and there is not enough space for everyone. No, the space under the seat in front of me is NOT sufficient for storage. I need that space for my feet you wankers! (No, this is not the sole inspiration for this rant, just the most novel reason for it.)

There should be a law. No airline employee or travel agent should be allowed to fly first class. Every one of them should suffer as the rest of us do. I am normal sized man for the 21st century. Those seats are scaled for people of the early 20th century. Yes, I'm including the rank and file employees. I'm hoping they will rise up and burn the corporate offices to the ground.

Current Mood: aggravated aggravated

Hmmm, I'm trying to decide if that is better or worse than 8 hrs of loud drunks on the way back from Europe.

I've learned how to talk to certain rightwingers.... it all depends.

Oh screw that.
Most agents do NOT fly first class. The last time I was in business class on a discount was 2001. We don't get the discounts we used to and we are treated just as poorly and in a lot of cases WORSE than the average public.
Airline execs - yeah, they shouldn't be allowed all their perks but those of us who actually WORK and have to deal with the assholes at the airlines and the assholes that are clients or the jackasses who call and take the info we provide and then go book it on a shit site like Expedia - yeah, we SHOULD get some perks.

No. No perks. Not until I can fly and not feel like livestock. If you can fix that problem for me then I will grant you a 747 upper lounge for every flight stocked with your choice of food, drink, heavenly bodies and massage oils. Furthermore, I will grant you chauffeured limousine service for the rest of your life.

What the fuck is Business class anyway? I've never seen it and I sure haven't flown it much less First Class.

So grab your pitchfork and torches. It's up to you. Lynch the bastards and feed them their own alli-saturated shit.
