The next time I hear how bad a project and how a waste of money High Speed rail is in the United States. I'll refer to this tread for reason why the current system is so great.


After all I have flew on several occasions, and I get a headache from the ups and downs of the plane. I can't stand having to take your shoes off just to prove you don't have a bomb underneath our feet. Why oh why and how the
will my tiny MP3 player bring down the fiberglass can on take off and landing?

I love to take my bicycle with me because I
about cab fares and perfer the public transit system plus I hate walking. But because you need a lousy plastic case to put your bicycle in, then what are you suppose to do when you get off the air plane. They won't let you on the bus with that big box, and you'll have to pay for it to be shipped with you. I'm
from being green. When I take Greyhound or Amtrak, and depending on where I get off on the train, because Bush cutbacks on Amtrak effected where you can checked luggage is available. I simply take it out of the box I purchased at the location, put my pedals back on my bicycle and off I go to my hotel.

So I stick with Amtrak every chance I get and it makes me angry that people say how we don't need it, and its a waste of money. :shk:. I don't know about you, but I made a song with the lyrics of Leaving on a Jet plane....
Quote"
Leaving on an Amtrak Train. I don't have to take my shoes off for homeland security.

Leaving on an Amtrak Train, you can take your bicycle as long as there is checked lugged at your destination.

But ignore Palin and her supporters. There stuck at the airport with their failed dream of an automobile utopia.

Oh you got to love this advertisement at Chicago O'Hare.

Just being stuck in the cabin for however many hours with no escape available. The stale air makes me nauseous and the nastiness I feel all over me while on said plane....I'd much rather drive.

What annoys me the most is when the person in front of you decides they don't want the germ infested air blowing on them anymore, but, instead of turning the air off, they turn it away from themselves right onto you.

Or when you're seated toward the front of coach with the kids without parents and are expected by the flight attendants to keep those kids entertained.

So, I guess what really bugs me is other people on the plane who can't fathom that another human being would want or think of anything other than them and their current desires.

I always come off planes with wicked stomach pains from holding in the gas lol. I wish others would do the same.

Hearing other peoples horrible music blasting from earphones. Not being able to stretch out my legs.

I just wonder why more folks don't just get a book to read for a flight...
Don't have to shut it down....needs no power, and really entertains.

Then again, I'm a reader, so...

Another vote for leg room here.

I'm 6'5" so I can barely fit into economy class seats to start with (and can't afford anything else) so I have to squeeze my knees tight up against the chair in front and then ten minutes into the flight I can almost guarantee the the person sitting in front of me starts trying to recline their seat causing me real pain.

I have almost got into fights over this on airplanes when people keep banging and banging the back of their seat into my knees even after I have explained my situation.

Also... why are the airline stewardesses never as sexy as the ones in the movies

I agree with you. A high speed train can get from New York to Los Angeles in 10 hours. Between searches, and getting luggage, that is the same on a plane.

Nothing more American then a train. It helped settle this country, still best for the environment, and still more efficient then a plane.

You can walk around, have a dining car. Seems common sense to me.

See I have no problem with humans being humans. coughing, crying, whatever. I don't expect humans to suddenly act like test crash dummies as soon as they step on a plane. Unless it gets extreme.

What I do have a major issue with is people trying to fit what is obvioulsy not carry on luggage into an overhead bin.

Has major safety repercutions.


I have fibromyalgia so not having room to shift and move is a major issue for me. Which is why I always get an exit aisle seat.

YES! Bring back smoking on planes I say

I'm generally OK with the food, but the lack of snacks is not good.

LOLL everyones posts are soo funny!
but yes i completely agree with the lack of snacks! i was on a 16 hour trip from Sydney to Dubai and they only gave us one meal the whole trip... and coming from someone that loves snacks even fruit, i definitely wasn't happy.
i also hateee the airconditioning in the whole plane. i have to wear like 3 layers of clothes and then i get off the plane and its so hot inside the airport! and they only provide you with like one crappy blanket.

I haven't flown much in the past few years but I'd have to say the air quality - I just know there will be someone with a cold or the flu or something, and I have been quite ill the day after a flight before with flu like symptoms, lucky it was after the return flight from a holiday, if that was on the out going flight that could eat into the enjoyment of the holiday if you suffering from some bug. - My ears are tuned to every sniffle and cough
And your basically stuck! - Trapped to breath pretty bad air for hours, the flight operators could easily sort this and they can control the air quality, but it is quite a big cost consideration and generally they cheep out on it.

Other than that I'm pretty cool with all the other normal annoyances, I don't mind kids so much as long as the parents are making some effort to respect others - the food is OK usually, but that's cos I can eat most things, I don't always need top quality food unless of course that is what I'm expecting - on thing that does get me is that last time I was expected to eat a meal without a drink - I need to drink when I eat. - I don't mind nervous flyers, I can usually think of something positive to say if it would help.

Oh yes, I also hate that bit where we all die in a huge fire ball, that's the sort of thing that does annoy me quite a bit.

Having to run across an entire airport so my wife can smoke.
Having to run across an entire airport to catch a connecting flight.


What I hate the most is the way too narrow seating area.


All of the above. Eccept the smoke, of course.

It actually increases one's patience. Or is it really the opposite ? The lack of nicotine decreases your tolerance

In all cases... high heels are a very bad choice

Have to agree with the leg room annoyance. Im not overly tall but when that chair in front goes back, good grief its a right pain in the legs literally. Im not exactly slim either so when I try to manouver out of my seat I do go out of my way not to hit the seat in front but if you have it all the way down, then hell yeah my fat ass is gonna bump something so dont bitch about it.

Drunks, drunks have to be one of the worst on flights. My first ever flight was to Spain on a package holiday, so just over 2 hrs on the flight. This one guy smacked his head on something and blood was pouring from the wound and any attention from the flight crew wasnt enough. He then started arguing with one of the stewardess about something or other and was told to shut it from other passengers. Thankfully I wasn't sitting next to him but did end up two doors down from him at the hotel and it made for a very interesting holiday.

And btw to the person bitching about obese people smelling you obviously just know people that smell cos i sure as hell dont! And sweat itself does not smell unless youre a manky fecker that doesnt wash or shower often enough to get rid of the bacteria that thrive on the proteins in sweat.
