Sit in your seat comfortably, wait your turn, and hop right off when the row in front of you is done deplaning. You'll look like you've been traveling for years.

This explains this perfectly: https://splinternews.com/how-to-exit...iot-1796716310

And for those of you on this board reading this who are those people who immediately jump up when the plane stops, now you know not to do this anymore.

That's bull ****. I stand up to stretch my legs. Simple as that. I have enough trips under my belt to know I'm not getting off the plane any earlier. In fact, when my turn comes, I'm already standing and have my bag in hand and ready to go which helps the unloading process. My standing up also allows the poor sucker sitting in the middle seat to spread out and get his stuff together so he can disembark quicker too. Meanwhile, I guess you and Mr. Splinternews can remain sitting with grins on your faces because you're smarter than us.

It’s more of the people that stand in the isle. Like when I have to get my bag from an overhead storage behind me, and some idiots are standing in the isle and I have to wait. If you want
To stand in the place of your seat, that’s fine. But don’t stand in the damn isle lol

I guess the idiots who put their bags in the overhead bin behind them just have to deal with the idiots who stand in the aisle. lol

No mud-slinging here. Just some good-natured (I hope) trash talking. I'd be happy to hand Aric's bag up the aisle to him from my standing position.

How about the people that walk in front of you at the baggage claim and stand right next to the carousel so no one else can see. If everyone would just stand back 5-10', then everyone could see. When you see your bag, then walk up and grab it.

We're getting way off topic now.

The closer you stand to the baggage carousels the fast your luggage will come out!

Itís rookie flyer 101!

A few tips I can share with you:
-Always book flights early on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (They are the cheapest, airlines manipulate prices on the hour.)
-First flights out of the airport are the key, if you are cancelled/delayed there is at least a better chance of getting another flight the same day.
-Basic economy is worthless, I can't even book it as a corporate traveler as my company knows it'll end up costing more.
-Always book through the airline
-If you are checking a bag/bags, 2 50lb suitcases are less expensive than 1 100lb suitcase.
-If you do plan to travel through a major airport at least once a year, get TSA pre-check ($85/5 years per person, well worth it and some credit cards cover it)

For fellow team talk members who fly often, flyertalk is my go to resource.

However, agree MIA, LAX and Sewark suck. LAX always causes me to scratch my head given itís an airport so many international travelers hit for the first time. I can only imagine their thoughts as they walk through the dimly lit tunnels by customs... ďthis is America?!?Ē
ORD has always been my home airport, I also completely understand how people get can get lost and annoyed there if they are flying out of smaller airports consistently. It's a pretty easy airport to navigate with local knowledge.

Hate MIA (the airport, not the city). The place is like a third world country...
Third world country pretty much sums MIA up, if you're an AA flier you're going to be connecting through almost all the time. I typically route myself through IAD or IAH inbound; its a longer flight, but that means more miles and more time to catch up on busy work without my phone ringing.

I don't have the passes, I have an annual membership and always enjoy hosting and networking.

My travel schedule is never planned out. I fly out and fix software, which typically means I'm heading off with a few days notice, but I can generally make it a day trip with no overnight stay.

After our flight experience, I have to agree 100% with this statement. IMO, the unloading process is quicker and less of a mess if everyone just keeps their seats and waits for the passengers in front of them to get their bags and walk forward. Our flight to Denver was just over 3 hours, so waiting another 3 minutes wasn't a big deal. There were only a few passengers who grabbed their bags and started to wiggle their way up the isle....causing things to slow down for the rest of us. I also donít understand why people crowd around and block the boarding area when boarding starts? The plane is being loaded by group number, so why not stand back out of the way until your group is called? The plane isn't going to leave without you.

Overall, it went very well. I wonít book one hour layovers anymore because we got to two of the connecting flights within less than 10 minutes of the boarding times. Also, my wife wasnít too happy about sitting next the engine after the recent engine failure on the Southwest flight.
