Re: If you could change one thing about flying as a pax on mainline, what would it be?

Assign overhead bin to associated seat. I well understand that not all seats might not have that associated bin, so charge a little less for those seats.

This would automatically control for extra large bags, which would impinge into someone else's space. A fair fee to gate check the offending bag.

Guess it would have to be cabin temp. What is it with airlines, it seems that it has been way too warm in the cabin for too long. Do not want to sit in a cabin in the high 60's for 3hrs. :hissyfit:


Having trouble figuring out your response. Are you over-exaggerating by saying high 60s Celcius? Just curious.

Had several fights where the cabin was so warm you would have been more than comfortable in underware. And yes I did see that once.
you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

I wish people cared more about their appearance when traveling.

Have you been on some flights lately? The cabin looks like a leper colony. Many flight attendants no longer set a good example for personal appearance either. Yeah, I know I'm living in an Ozzy and Harriet dreamworld.


Have you tried going back to the 1950s?


I would have done well in the 50s. :D

in addition to the closing window blinds, self control of 787 window settings would be nice

interesting replies for sure. I agree with all but one. For me it's a multitude of things so I'll try not to ramble. I have a couple of books on advertising in the 60s & 70s and when you look at the airline ads they were wonderful. Beautiful food, smiling "stewardesses" lots of leg room, etc. If you had asked someone back then what they imagined air travel to be in 2017 they would have imagined space flight and luxury you couldn't imagine. Now fast forward to 2017 and air travel rates down there with riding a bus but add arrogant, angry F/As and TSA. I won't bother you with the last 3 flights my family has been on and the horrible service with uncaring airline reps. But to try to see where all this comes from think small uncomfortable seats, unfriendly personnel , long delays, TSA, lost baggage, diversions that result in you riding a bus to destination, etc, etc.
