Just read an amusing column by Rick Seaney of FareCompare.com entitled The Six Worst Airplane Passengers of 2009.
And it’s barely May.
Rick chose to profile tantrum at the gate lady, deploy the slide guy, I have a bomb guy, plus two particularly egregious drunks and a miscellaneous freakout case.
Let’s keep these people in mind when traveling, for perspective. Maybe the guy in the next seat isn’t quite that bad.
