I posted something like that before for security reasons.

Anitram did not like it, she wants her notebook open and cranking billable hours.

No, that's just a random picture deep posted.

Kevin Smith is nowhere near that large.

I found both pictures I posted doing searches related to this topic.

Airline seats are 17 inches wide, some are 18 inches

Airline Seat Sizes


A folding chair is 18.25 inches
there is no shaming in posting a picture on a person sitting in a stadard size folding chair.

A person is the size they are. Are we supposed to pretend like they don't exist?

Southwest actions regarding Smith seem unreasonable to me. I'd be interested in hearing some verification of his version of events from someone else though.

On my way to Hawaii last year there was a toddler that I swear screamed all the way through 6 time zones. I won't even go into detail about the sorts of thoughts that passed through my head.

Well, we will be flying through Hawaii. . . That to me is better than the 13 hour flight from Detroit to Tokyo though. Gosh, I really hope he doesn't scream the entire time. I don't think he will. He's not a long-haul screamer generally. Just short bursts. Usually when he wants to get down and run around and we won't let him. . .

Oh boy.

I fly every Christmas season

there are always families with kids on the plane

of course toddlers are going to cry when the air pressure hits their ears

my attitude is we were all kids once, sometimes kids have to travel, what can be done,

drug em

I found a Contract of Carriage from a major airline
they can throw a stinky person off of the plane, too.

"PERSONS WHO HAVE A MALODOROUS CONDITION (OTHER THAN INDIVIDUALS QUALIFYING AS DISABLED)."

Can you give him some Benadryl to knock him out? That's the nice thing about dogs, I can just give them something to take the edge off or knock them out if they won't settle while we travel.

i've sat in front of two three year olds (maybe a little bit older) on a 14 hour flight and they never made a noise. i've also sat across from some absolute little shits on a three hour flight....and that was the connecting flight right after the flight with the great kids. i had my faith in parenting built up and knocked down so quickly.

it's the luck of draw. some parents know how to control their children, some don't even try. some children can handle flight and some can't. just like catching a bus, you deal with who you deal with. if you don't like it, call net jets.
