There's a reason they don't let people who wear dresses drive?

I get annoyed about people reclining their seats all the way back too but this went a little too far!

Airplane annoyance leads to brouhaha in the skies over D.C. - Yahoo! News

Wow, talk about an over reaction. Turning around a plane and scrambling planes over a seat reclining squabble is ludicrous.

No kidding! Can you imagine what the total tab was for that moment of inconsiderate behavior followed by the inappropriate response?

Yea, they will have to start charging for toilet paper in flight to make up for it.

Or maybe you just stay home and miss it this time. Having kids means making a few sacrifices. Who knew? Why should the rest of the passengers suffer just because you can't bear the thought of spending a single Thanksgiving without your parents/siblings?

Most kids aren't any worse than adults on planes, and most flights don't last more than two to four hours, and most passengers aren't affected by children traveling (because their seats are out of range). Suggesting that families with small children never travel by air is probably a touch extreme.

Sometimes I do hate the planning part esp finding connecting flights that work and can shorten the transit time. Also, agreeing with your travel partner/s on what where when....sometimes you don't know how much to compromise and you wonder whether this is a holiday after all....
