I think charging to use the bathroom is more ridiculous.

Duh! I am well aware of that regarding the baggage charges. I'm referring to what I've witnessed which is people who have a rolling bag (suitcase) they stuff in the overhead and they also have the laptop or "carry on" bag and large purse and extra bags for people with small children or items purchased in the airport shops or Duty Free.....that doesn't include the outerwear like coats, jackets, sweatshirts that people peel off and shove wherever they can find space. THAT is what I was referring to.....there's only so much room for stowing belongings ON a plane.

I am a good traveler and usually try to keep my carry on to a minimum one bag that fits under the seat in front of me or in the overhead (thus allowing me with long legs more leg/foot room). It pisses me off when someone asks if they can store something under the seat in front of me when they've already shoved things in the overhead and floorspace under the seat in front of themself.

Comments, anyone?

Exactly

You are ALLOWED to have those laptop bags and back-packs, Carek. The outerwear has always been over-head "if space permits" as far as I know, and otherwise, I think you're meant to just wear it behind you on the seat.

My problem with carry-on is the people who flat out ignore the over-head bin rules. The backpack/laptopbag/purse is to be stowed under the seat in front of you. The people who shove all of their shit in the overhead should have to pay for that.

i think there should be a special place in hell for people, who when there is ample bin space above their seat, instead decide to leave their bag wherever the hell they like. meaning when i finally get to my row i then have to turn around again and go against the flow to find somewhere for my bag...which in turn probably fucks with someone else.

i also shake my head at the people who have clearly never understood how to make use of space in their life. don't just throw your bag in there, how about pack it in carefully and at the right angle to best make use of the space there? half of the storage problems would go away if people were forced to complete six levels of tetris before purchasing their ticket.

the whole problem stems from the excessive charge for checked bags. flying in new zealand and australia i've never in my life seen problems finding space (plus people understand the things i've said above so that doesn't become an issue), and even with a new charge for checked bags on domestic flights i still haven't seen it become a problem. maybe because it's cheaper here. that and people smile. honestly, the difference between flying around here and then in the usa is like night and day - it goes from almost everything being a pleasure to an utter misery.

oh, and the horns in the second video are a big in your face promotion promoting (there's got to be a better way to say that...) ryanair's on time percentage, which is well, well above supposedly more reputable airlines.

I dont travel enough to be annoyed at all this, however good point about putting your bag in the over head properly. Just turning it to the side instead of throwing it in any which way can leave room for at least one more bag and save time for the attendants to have to re-arrange it to make room for more bags.

i love flying, but i hate all my fellow travellers on the plane because they're idiots. people will pack everything else in the world but leave their common sense at home.

and ryanair is the official airline for u2 because of nloth. since sales didn't meet expectations, they've had to downgrade.
