They could always lift the rule for the number of practices before a competition. Doubtful on that too but ya never know.

Why is getting on a plane early an important thing and even an indicator of class and status?

Everyone on the plane quite literally departs the airport and arrives at the destination at the same exact time.

Everyone needs to wait. Why is it better to wait in a plane than in a concourse?

I agree, but I can't help think that this was a problem limited to the Before Times. I assume I'll be paying at least double what I did previously to fly in the future and doing it far less often than before.

Being in the front of the plane is more important imo. Means you get off waaaaay faster.

That being said getting on earlier is only really important if you are really determined to have your carry on not checked under any circumstances.

In a perfect world: last on, first off.

They should let you board and deplane from both the front and back doors.

Sometimes we get to deplane from both ends when arriving in Bethel. No idea why it isn't all the time here, since there's no jetway or anything, just movable steps. When the plane I'm on lands, I want out of it ASAP. I hate flying into O'Hare because after you land you taxi for 20 minutes, and then usually spend another 20 minutes in the penalty box waiting for a gate to be available to deplane.

It's important because the overhead bins get full and the people who paid the most (for the flight and over time with that airline) then get screwed out of overhead space. Also, you are sitting in your seat (getting served drinks in first class) instead of standing in the jetway waiting for clueless people trying to figure out where their seat is, who in the family is taking what seat, trying to stuff a way-bigger-than-allowed bag into the overhead.

I've done that a few times on Jet Blue at the Long Beach airport. At smaller airports, not much of a security/safety risk. At larger airports, a much bigger safety/security risk.

Exactly.

Not a problem anymore though, nobody is going to be flying a full airplane for a long time!

Yeah they'd have to get new jetways.

No, it deserves what it gets because it NEVER has long enough sleeves.

Are you a primate? Mine fit perfectly and I think I'd like to wear them 365 days a year.

I cannot stand cotton shirts. I basically only use tri-blend shirts these days. However, I cannot stand things 'touching' me and cotton generally is tighter and tougher on the skin to me.

Funny, Louis!

I've had good luck with Gildan and Jockey. Maybe it helps that I'm an XL and I don't have enormous biceps to pull the sleeves up.

Counterpoint: The sleeves are ALWAYS comically long on me.

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.
