What's the stupidest, least substantive thing you can complain about?

Thread founder Blumie had the following dedicatory post to kick off the original thread in June of 2010 to guide us, so we will take our cues from that to continue this hallowed FT-AA|A tradition. (FT Rules still apply.)

I'll go first: I find it really annoying the way the napkins are fanned before being put out at the Admirals Clubs. Is this supposed to make us feel like the place is uber-fancy? Why don't they just forget about the fanning and put out some real napkins instead of the flimsy cocktail napkins they use?

My LAX-JFK upgrade cleared at 99 hours and 58 minutes, not 100 hours. 2 minutes of pointlessly refreshing the app.

I'm complaining that I have nothing to complain about.

Also that my preferred flight is already F6 so I had to book an earlier one for easy free upgrade.

Crap I just negated my first complaint!

AA was announcing a delay to this flight when the board showed this instead. Unacceptable!

AA customer service is overwhelmed and taking a long time to respond to my email!

I think American Airlines' new livery would look a whole lot better if the new gray paint for the fuselage was a few shades lighter in color.

Right now the shade of gray they use is too dull and bland.

Really? I count 8 windows behind him. Are there two seats behind him? Does he really get 5 windows all to himself?
