I can't believe I just wrote that title...but I'm actually serious. Very.
About now you're likely thinking I should have put a title like this in Mud Pit, but it's not a fight. It's not mud slinging, it's actually
Okay, here's something I think we can all get around a true "bi-partisan" effort. Calling all democrats, all liberals, all ANTIFA, all independents,
all conservatives, all republicans, all extremists (of whatever flavor you choose)...EVERY-ONE!
How many have flown on a plane lately, like very lately?
Was it comfortable, jammed in that middle seat which was 16" wide, with your knees jammed into the seat in front of you just 21" away (in the upright
position), with two sweaty giants on either side of you? Could you even get your tray table down without contorting yourself?
How many have tried to use the lavatory on the new 737-Max and other next generation aircraft? Could you do it? I can't even fit inside one let
alone turn around and close the door!
Did you enjoy having cram your laptop under the seat in front of you because there was no space left in the overhead bins? (taking up what little
legroom you had left?
You know, sardines are packed in a sardine can pretty tightly, but modern fliers are packed in these new aircraft even tighter than that!
It's ridiculous! What's next? Standing up? (and I'm not just kidding either, someone has already come up with how they'll do it!)
Can we all agree to band together, people of all political persuasions, and rally together? Let's all team up and tell the airlines..."ENOUGH IS

Can we all agree to stand up to the airlines and tell them we're not going to take it anymore??
Now, I write this today, Sunday, four days before the single largest travel week in North America, Thanks Giving. Millions upon millions of people
will fly to see their families and loved ones. Pay extra close attention to how uncomfortable of an experience it is...and then COMPLAIN! Write them
a comment, tell them how awful your experience was! Let them know they made 4-5 hours of your day a completely awful experience and that you'll never
fly on their airline again because of it. TELL THEM!! Maybe if enough people do this they'll start getting the message that we're sick of this!
And yes, it is a Conspiracy, a conspiracy to sacrifice even the most basic common sense comforts just to make one extra dollar...on everything!
Hey, if there's one thing we're all GOOD at it's complaining, right?
So let's do what we're best at!
I'll leave you with a article which explains a good deal of what is going on.
It's a Struggle
COMPLAIN WELL, COMPLAIN LOUD...and COMPLAIN OFTEN!!
Cheers, safe travels...and Happy Thanks Giving!
