RE: Most annoying airline passengers
I'm a person with a mobility impairment so I get to get on first. I always get dirty looks, well, less now that I use a power chair. Then those same folks give me weird looks when I remain seated when the plane lands. I always say "First one on but last one off." I want them to understand it is far from a privilege!

RE: Most annoying airline passengers
When there are three seats across occupied by me and one other person. And that other person won't move from the center seat.
