Friday Rant: When Regional Jets Truly Stink

When a baby is crying 10 inches in front of you...

When an upgrade means sitting in basically the same seat as in back...

When the person behind you is sneezing on top of you...

When the person to your right is coughing on your laptop ...

When the plane needs to shed passengers because it exceeds its take-off weight...

When there is no running water (or anti-germ spray) in the lavatory...

When the pilot can barely speak English and looks like a teenager (that really builds confidence now, doesn't it)...

When you need to walk 100 meters in the pouring rain to get to the plane or the terminal (without an umbrella)...

Thank you, United, for teaching me to avoid regional jets whenever I can. It's been a great education in recent months. Proof that an extra few inches in the air can make all the difference in the world -- not to mention a pilot that has more than a few hundred hours of experience in what he's flying (and more than 1000 hours of overall flight time).
