My coat is not packed nor is it in the overhead or closet. It is on me because I am freezing on the airplane. You people run a different temperature than I do, clearly.

I believe I have been misunderstood.

My wife keeps telling me I am a terrible communicator.

You can't run out of space on that plane. You can get 6 full-size carryons in each bin (except the very first one).
Iíve seen on a few 7M8 runs the dead heading crew place their bags flat and not on their sides. None of this surprises me anymore.

Itís also pretty hard to determine how full a flight is until you are erm, on board. Even if the seat map (hahaha) is empty at 2-3h out there could be a ton of standbys etc...

Case in point was 857 a way back, 2h out seat map was about half full. Flight had barely anything free. I heard there was some issue.

There seem to be a lot of new FAs on the YVR-YUL/YYZ flights this year and the older SDs (especially the males) don't seem to be very good at training them. 2 flights ago, I had a SD quite condescending to the young woman, patronizing too, so yes I can see how a new FA could make a small error.
Having said I get missed sometimes but always works out, today it didnít (one must not tempt fate). Took meal orders by row number. When came to me asked for chicken. Said fine and moved on. Everyone in cabin was served and eventually they came back and asked what had ordered. I said chicken and they said they were out. Turns out the young lady ticked me for chicken and then someone crossed me out. Presumably as they had already assigned all the meals but who really knows.

The nerve is getting up multiple times during the boarding process.

Why on earth would you be wearing a coat through the airport?
Try that approach in -37 and boarding a Q400 across the tarmac in YQR. And if the coat you need on that day fits in your carry on then your carry on is too big. That also explains why you might still have the said coat with you when you arrive in your final tropical destination. I personally layer but I try not to judge other passengers who choose a full parka.

My coat is in the closet. If it were to go into my carryon, wouldn't be a carryon anymore, would need being big enough to get checked.

That's in winter of course. Mid-season, I guess it might fit. But it's still inconvenient.

So I have been going to the warmer climates of Asia all week and in YYC its a cold, but comfortably dry -20 these past few days. Before i board the shuttle bus from the park & drive, i shed my winter coat and put on my light weight hoody (bunny wrap for those Saskatchewan folks) Yup it's cold, but i simply remember the words of wisdom from my training NCO from my military training ........ suck it up buttercup ........its winter in Canada

That's pretty much what I do but lots of older folks don't and will, therefore, take coats, which some think is unusual. Expecting otherwise is unrealistic. My wife doesn't handle the cold at all ,even though she is ex military herself, and were I to try the suck it up approach I might find her reprising some of her prior training on myself.

At some level of cold, it is actually dangerous, and not just for the elderly. Let them wear their coats and deal with the mild inconvenience.

On most of the routes I typically fly, wearing a fairly bulky coat onto the plane is more or less obligatory for much of the year. Only the inexperienced try to stuff their coats into the overhead bin, because if everybody did that there would be no room for any bags up there at all. Likewise, nobody is going to pack his or her coat into a suitcase, carry-on or otherwise, because (a) you'll be needing that coat on the apron and probably until at least 15 minutes after the doors are closed; (b) have you ever tried packing a down parka into a 22-inch rollaboard; (c) on your typical flight to Inuqanngitturaalujjuaq or wherever, everybody's bags are already full to capacity with groceries/shopping/booze/contraband tuktuminiq. If there's no closet (), one either wears one's coat during the flight or uses it as a seat liner/pillow. I don't know why this practice isn't more common further south.

I once got back to YYZ in October after a trip to California. My coat was in my checked luggage. My luggage turned up three days later than I did, waiting for the bus with just a sweater was not a pleasant experience.

Why would a pax throw a roll of toilet paper in the J washroom toilet? Rhetorical question. However, I really felt sorry for the FA.

Had the overhead open to put my stuff back in my bag before landing. While I'm re-packing at my seat, a SE MM decides they can't walk the extra 5 ft to the galley and instead use my open bin at 1K to place their garbage in.
