But in Asia, Customer Service is amazing. There is absolutely no way they would ever insult a customer, or act annoyed, or brush you off. I have seen American FA's...

In a broad sense, I have never been the "cut-it-as-close-as-possible" camp. I get wanting to minimize time in the airport. I am not going to show up 8 hours early for a flight. That said, I am not...

I considered just leaving it in the aisle..but as that would slow boarding I sucked it up and put it away. Like a sucker. But on the other end I didn't take it out for her.
