Gotta ride business class to get exclusive armrest privileges

13

u/FuckingKilljoy Sep 22 '22

Idk if you've ever been on a plane before in economy. The armrests are like | _ | _ | _ | and making it | _ | | _ | | _ | would probably sacrifice a seat per row for something that most people don't really think about accept

And sure, 1 seat per row might not seem like much for the significantly increased comfort of your passengers, but that's up to 50 seats per plane per trip which can mean an airline is missing out on potentially hundreds of thousands a month.

It sucks and it's uncomfortable, but it's capitalism and if you want to see the world and can't afford business class then you just have to suck it up and think "well at least they give us seats"

u/KalebMW99 Sep 21 '22

On the other hand, not having to make anyone get up to use the bathroom is nice. Being able to grab my bag well before deboarding without asking anyone to let me get my bag is also nice (I always bring it back to my seat though, crowding the aisle is lame and I reserve using the aisle space to keep people who don’t know how the fuck to deboard a plane from cutting in line).

121

u/NoBlackScorpion Sep 21 '22

Yep, they both have their pros and cons. I opt for window seats on flights under 6ish hours when I feel relatively confident I won't need to leave my seat. Anything longer and I'm choosing the aisle so I stretch my legs and use the bathroom at my leisure.

43

u/TreTrepidation Sep 21 '22

What cutting in line? Get your shit and get off the plane. Stay seated until they start letting people off. Don't hold up a line by getting shit out of a compartment when the line is moving.

u/KalebMW99 Sep 21 '22

Surely you’re not serious?

By default (and that’s a very important qualifier), deboarding should be from front to back, aisle to window. This makes intuitive sense, the first people to have a chance to deboard are gonna be in the front and in the aisles. Now, sometimes someone seated further behind/away from the aisle will be ready to go while someone in front of them isn’t, and nowhere have I advocated for holding up a line of people who already have their stuff in order to get your own, nor will I. What I am suggesting is that cutting off people ahead of you in the default boarding order, who are just as ready to go as you are (either you both have bags to get or both don’t), is an all too common dick move. Rereading my first comment will also tell you that I’m a fan of grabbing my bag before deboarding begins, if possible, so that I’m ready to go as soon as there’s an opening.

stay seated until they start letting people off

Now this is exactly how you end up with a held up line. Getting your bag before being let off saves time for everyone, and you can sit right back down with the bag in your lap when you’re done. I don’t see the downside here.

I only ever choose the window seat. With an aisle seat you’re guaranteed to get bumped into while people are boarding or going to the bathroom or when the attendants are serving food/snacks. The middle seat…well that’s self explanatory. With the window seat you can lean against the wall and not be touched or disturbed the whole flight. For me, it’s not about the view, it’s about being anti-social.

Edit: because I apparently like to repeat things

u/madethisat124am Sep 21 '22

I sat in the aisle seat during one trip and one of the FAs hips was damn near thrashing me the entire flight. After knocking me awake twice I just started to rotate my upper body a little every time she came stomping by to avoid leaning on the stranger next to me and to avoid getting shoved every few minutes. When it was time for the FAs to get seated and buckle up also, she sat at the front of the plane and kept the most intense eye contact with me I swear it almost made me wonder if the thrashing was intentional. I’m sure it wasn’t but that wasn’t the first time I sat in the aisle, it was never that bad lol. I wasn’t even mad because I knew I could’ve avoided it by paying to pick my seat but I’ve been paying to pick a window seat ever since 😂

Because you can lean against it and sleep. Because you're not in the aisle so you don't have to get up for strangers to pee and you don't have to get bumped by anyone fumbling past you. Because you like enclosed spaces.

Why do you have to want to look out the window for the entire flight in order to have a valid enough reason? Especially since this tweet doesn't mention what point in the flight this happened or the time of day or the weather.

u/roostersncatsplz Sep 21 '22

In addition to all the correct “because sleep” responses, some of us have a fear of flying and much prefer the window closed because it’s easier to pretend we’re just in a really loud car.

Luckily I’ve gotten way better about that and only really feel that urge during like…take off and landing. But I still feel less panicky if I have the control over it. Just a small thing that helps my anxiety

4

u/FLdancer00 Sep 22 '22

Same. You can demand to have the window open, just understand that also comes with me getting a ton of anxiety and you having a really uncomfortable flight.

13

u/pinniped1 Sep 21 '22

If you know your Southwest flight is lightly loaded, it's a good seat. You have a wall to lean on and you're away from the FA doing drink service and other passengers moving around the aisles.

If they don't tell you proactively, just ask the ops agent. They'll tell you how many people are expected on your flight and you can figure out the odds your middle seat will be occupied.

If it's fairly full but there will be 10-20 empties, go to approximately row 17 and look for a solo traveler already in an aisle seat. Preferably a big bloke.

10

u/1800yasatan Sep 21 '22 edited Sep 21 '22

Sometimes the window seat person is just slightly behind a window and having a good time, but the person in the middle or aisle seat gets the pleasure of the full beam of light from the window directly into their corneas all flight. I've sat an entire flight having to hold my palm on that side like a blinder because I couldn't even see the screen in front of me with the particle beam going directly into my face.

Not everyone wants the window open some people prefer it shut so they can fall asleep easier. I don't think someone really has to justify why they sit somewhere, it's a plane and as a passenger with your own seat you should respect others spaces.

One time I was on a flight in the window seat and a very large woman sat next to me and proceeded to pull an entire stinky ass meal out of her bag, I'm talking MEATS, CHEESES, SAUCES. Then she ordered about a dozen items from the flight attendant and proceeds to have a full 5 course meal.

I quietly sat next to her the whole flight, as I was barraged by smells, and sounds and sights I won't even begin to describe.

We land and as the woman gets up to leave, she bends over to grab her bag on the floor and she literally FARTS IN MY FACE.

I saw it first as a joke on Sanford and Son:

FRED (to Police Officer Smitty (Black), standing next to Officer Hoppy(White) ): Smitty, we was robbed!!

SMITTY: What did the guy look like Fred?

FRED: It starts with a "Y" and ends with a "T"!

HOPPY (looking clueless): A "Y" and a "T" you say?????

FRED: Yeah, man--WHITE-Y!!

(laugh track)

Wouldn’t say it’s my favorite, but it’s not really a big deal.

Idk man... I've seen "YT" being used and I've never had a problem with it, but reading "a YT" made me cringe a bit. I'm a white dude and I would feel uncomfortable telling a story that included, "I ran into a black today..."

Idrgaf... I'm cool with people doing whatever they want to do as long as it doesn't hurt anyone. I just feel racists are going to see it and start bitching. Maybe not though. Idfk. Time will tell.

Why lean over? Treating a person like an inanimate object is never going to end well. I like the polite way she was told to go fuck herself.

u/Titan7771 Sep 21 '22

I simply cannot fathom this kind of entitlement. Plus, the window shade being controlled by the person in the window seat is an unspoken rule of air travel along with stuff like helping the flight attendant pass food/drinks over to people far from the aisle. It's basic manners.

She tried it. Probably gets shot like that done to her on a regular basis and wanted to do it to others. No excuse, but this is what happens sometimes. She could just be an entitled asshole, too though.

We just saw Ms. Badu play here in St. Louis. She was amazing.

Also, people intruding into each others' space (especially on an airplane) just need to be slapped.

The way I have avoided these situations my entire life is just having an irrational fear of the flying death tubes we call airplanes.

I flew to New York a few weeks ago. I had premium seating with more legroom. Why these YT kid sitting next to me try to get me to trade up my premium seat with more room for a seat in the back one of their friends had talmbout “it’s a window seat too.” I was like this seat costs more $$$ and comes with more
