What Are You Most Annoyed About on Your Flight

I was wondering what annoys folks the most when they fly, whether its fees, delays ect.? Be honest

When the FA says roller bags won't fit....it means they won't fit, so why do people try to make it work, it slows the already boarding process down...

Just because an FA says they won't fit doesn't make it true.

But they do fit in sideways; early bird gets the worm, right?

Delays + cramped cabin always made me the crabbiest. In tandem.

When the delay is longer than the original flight time.

The other people on the plane.

If you put that many folks together in a confined space, it's inevitable that they will all be annoyed with one another eventually.

Anyone who tries to cheat - whether it's bending rules (putting two bags in the overhead and none underneath seat, on a full flight), or taking a seat that's not theirs, or spreading out and encroaching on others - basically any form of 'unjust enrichment.'

Leg room! By far, my biggest complaint when flying economy. It seems every time I hop on a plane, the legroom gets shorter and shorter. Im not even 6 foot

Inflight infantilism. I swear some people drop 100 IQ points the moment they line up for boarding.

I'll second that. One word is applicable to most things brought up already in this thread. Inconsiderate would be another I'd choose. Bags, seat poaching, all of them can fall into the Rude/Inconsiderate category.
