My other pet hate is the people seated in rows behind you that push past while you are trying to retrieve your laptop bag on disembarking
dajop said:Apart from inconsiderate recliners, my favourite would have to be the "lets block the aisle for 5 mins" person when disembarking .....
In the meantime ..... the 100 or so pax behind are almost to the point of violence.

4) Too much carry on (2). As I am also fairly broad (not fat ) I am forever getting whacked, bruised and assulted when PAX comes rolling down the aisles with 3 cabin bags plus duty free all loaded on the same shoulder heading my way.
Know that one well ... people turn around with verticle center of gravity somewhere near the spine; the Backpack protrudes and swings inn a arc thereby becoming a weapon of some clout ... literally.oz_mark said:Hmm, reminds me. People that forget they have got a back pack on!

Oh dear, I appear to be on the hit list!NM said:
- (MP3) users who use cheap earphones that spill out so much sound…
- People who laugh out loud when listening to something in the headphones…
- People mixing coke with their scotch…
- People who travel with their entire duty-free allowance of perfume or cologne worn on their body…

bigjobs said:i was on a DJ flight from Mackay to BNE once where the seat was broken and would recline over a couple of mins just be sitting in it normally. i was embarassed and explained my dilemma to the person behind and just kept putting it forward. in the end i rested my head on the tray table ...
it was a full flight too, no spare seats. it was a challenge to keep it upright fully during take off
turnip said:What gets me is the people behind who use your seat as an anchor to lift themselves up or lower back down again. Or those who can't turn sideways to get out of the seat, giving yours a push as they move to the aisle. Nothing like being woken up everytime someone beside AND behind needs to move!
turnip said:Don't have a problem with recliners or reclining, though I only put mine back a notch or two.

If I remember correctly the aisle seat armrest does not lift on any of the QF aircraft flying long haul international.tuapekastar said:Surprised more people seated on the aisle do not raise the aisle armrest to leave/resume their seat (I don't know on how many seats/aircraft this is possible but certainly in Y on planes I've been on, and Y is where the problem would be felt most). So much easier!
