This is an excellent article, and someone should write one like it every 30 days. "The public" is hard to deal with. I've always had a built-in empathy for airport agents and flight attendants; maybe I was one in a former life. The jerks will always be with us, the good guys already know this stuff, but these kinds of articles can inform everyone else so that flying isn't quite as ugly as it has been recently. Thanks, Neil.

I know that some rules are in place to make things safer (or at least appear to be safer, even though some things weren't really a problem in the first place, nor do some 'rules' actually solve the problem of why we aren't safe), but some rules have little to do with safety and more to do with an airline rule imposed to save the airline money (or to increase the airline's profits).

So true, Jevia, I laughed out loud at the repeated "to make you safe" references. What a bunch of baloney!
