Top Ten Worst Things About Traveling On a Airplane

Traveling on a plane to go on holiday or to get back isn't a nice thing to do. Here's the worst things about traveling by aeroplane.
The Top Ten
1 Crying Babies

The last time I was on a flight, I was sitting in the window seat and I had a great view of the wing, but unfortunately, a mother with her crying baby sat right next to me and I had to get up and go to the seat behind me because I wanted to film the takeoff and landing and I didn't want the crying baby ruining it.

When I came home from Seattle on 11/30/2019, I had to deal with an stupid, obnoxious baby screaming right behind me for 1 -2 hours all because the child's mother was too lazy to make it shut up. I'm autistic and can't stand screaming little kids. Even 13 year old me hated crying babies.

Annoying wherever you are but they seem to cry excessively when in the cabin. Think of my ears! Please!

This would be the worst if I was on an airplane and I heard crying babies

2 Landing Ear Pains

When it comes to landing, the worst thing are those horrible pains that some people (me included) get horrible pains in both their ears. If you do, I feel for you.

I suffer from this. It's really very annoying.

Yeah, gum does not work.

Its hurts my ears
I just put my hands in my ears and hold for 5 minutes

3 Those "Boop" Sounds

You know what I mean. For me, worse than crying babies as these sounds are what can tell you that you can take your seat belt off or you have to put it back on for turbulence or whatever. More than never, these sounds don't mean anything and it feels like a sleep prevention system more than anything.

Engine start-ups are great! Airplanes sounds don't drive me crazy at all. The Boeing 777 has a great sound

4 Limited Leg Room

Oh, how I hate this. At 6'4", with my legs being disproportionate to the rest of me, I can barely fit anywhere. But plane seats are the worst.

I'm a big guy, 6'2" to be precise. I hate being crushed into a seat where my legs are crying for more room.

5 Getting Up to Let Someone Get to the Toilet

The positive about an aisle seat is the legroom to the side of you. The negative is that you have to get out to let the other people out who want the toilet. This is a real pain.

I never rode on an airplane, but it seems it's awful. I feel for you.

That sounds annoying if your near the end and someone next to you needs to go to the bathroom

6 Same Old Safety Demonstration

Would it hurt to change it up a bit, make it interesting but still meaningful? South West Airlines are good at changing it up like a boss. Many other airlines can learn a lot from them.

Where I live they not only have it in English but also in French which I find a little unnecessary.

7 In Flight Meals

I never had this problem because I only went up north to Washington state and it only took 3 hours to get there. The snacks they gave the passengers during my December 2018 and November 2019 trips were actually good.

We all know they're disgusting and overly expensive... I'd rather not even if I was hungry.

8 TVs Sometimes Don't Work

This happened when I was coming home from Seattle with my family on 11/30/2019, so I couldn't drown out the obnoxious stupid screeching baby behind me, and I was bored to death for the 3 hours I was on that plane between 4 - 7 p.m. that evening.

9 Kids Kicking Seats
10 Aisle Armrests

The armrests between the seats can be pulled up out of the way, so I'm not bothered about those ones. It's the ones on the aisle seats that can't be retracted that are the problem. They love to torture your elbow and I swear I just wanted to break the armrest off, throw it to the floor as hard as I could then stamp and jump on it repeatedly.

The Contenders
11 Luggage Regulations
12 Tickets are So Expensive
13 Going Through Security at the Airport
14 Non Reclining Seats

The terrors of many budget airlines these days. Uncomfortable, non reclinable seats.

15 It Takes Forever to Get to Your Destination
16 Fear of Crashing
17 Rude Cabin Crew

Some of them seem to be pretty stressed and because of this they just don't care.

But I don't think so, flights have the best cabin crews.

18 Airports Moving Your Flight Unexpectedly

This happened back on December 5th, 2018. We were at terminal 3 before my uncle heard the announcement that our flight was moved to terminal 2, so my family (as well as all the other passengers on our flight) had to take the airport shuttle to terminal 2 and that took about 10 minutes.
