What irritates you most on a plane flight?

Seat back kickers and smelly people...

Constantly waking me up to put my seat belt on when the only reason I'd ever fucking need it is if we got into a head on crash, or if I got sucked out of... oh wait

The germs on the arm rests, seat belt buckle, tray table, and window pull, the setback pocket in front of you, the person sitting next to me that wants to talk, the person sitting next to me that picks his toenails (it happened), the person next me that hasn't bathed, has eaten something with garlic, or sleeps and snores. The flight attendants who think they have "POWER", their attitudes, their uniforms (they all dress the same BTW) the mechanics, the service crews, the snacks, the toilets (bacteria and virus incubators). I don't like the passengers with screaming kids or parents who change their children's diapers next to you. In fact I don't like the pilots. I don't like airplanes either. Busses shouldn't fly.

When people put carry on bags overhead that are small enough to be under the seat. Then people with real carry ons don't have room.

Being stuck in the middle seat between two people that want to talk over you while trying to sleep.

Lack of leg room. Odd complaint for someone who is 5' 10" but still.

When the pilot gets sick from eating the fish. Both pilots, And the nav/engineer.
Then Ted Stryker has to land the plane.

Luckily I practice landing the type of plane I'm flying on on microsoft flight simulator. (actually, I really do).

There are a few things; I'm not sure which irritates me more.

- People who use more than their fair share of overhead compartment space. I've seen people get on board with their carry-on, laptop bag, large coat (and sometimes also a purse), and they put it all into the overhead. Seriously, WTH. Be considerate of your fellow passengers. I really wish each seat had a designated amount of overhead bin space.

- People who put their carry-on bags in the overhead horizontally instead of vertically. It's not a difficult concept to grasp people. Roll-aboard carry-on bags are designed to fit in the overhead lengthwise so more bags can be stowed up there.

- People who can not lift their own bags in and out of the overhead. If you can't lift your own bag, you've probably packed too much stuff. Note, this does not apply to those who are disabled or elderly.

- Kids who constantly kick the seatback, reach between the seats, or are just plain loud. No, I don't have kids but I do understand they can be difficult. That said, kids shouldn't get a free pass to be unruly on a plane. Be a parent and discipline your kids, or at least attempt to.

- People who book a window seat but constantly need to get up to use the restroom. If you need to go that frequently, book a damn isle seat.

Passengers who absolutely must have the window seat, yet then proceed to close the shutter/blind, get their laptop and headphones out and watch their own movie.
You can do that from any seat. I want to look out the window, jackass.

When you see your plane is delayed 10 minutes...because in reality, it's a couple hours or canceled, they just don't want 100 people trying to shift the flights all at once.

Often the flight into PBI (West Palm Beach) is loaded with old people. The second the plane is depressurized on the tarmac, it seems like all the senior citizens on the plane let out a collective fart. It is irritating because it is so predictable.
