    Says the guy ranting and raving on about HIS rights and things HE paid for without so much as a consideriation for anyone else.

    Way to paint with a broad brush by the way.

    Meh, I'm actually pretty selfless putting others needs over my own. You don't know a thing about me, but by your responses we know a lot about you. I don't think it's too much to be courteous to each other no matter our age.

    To be fair, there were several posters on here who stated that if you recline at all you are the prick.

    I have made it plain that I recline slowly. But I must recline for a bit. Seat is in upright on takeoff and landing and during food service. And when I go to restroom and walk and stand a bit. So I am considerate in reclining. You, on the other hand, do not wish for me to recline at all. So who is selfish? Me. Me. Me. Millenial.

    You said I was rude for reclining. I had repeatedly pointed out when I recline and why I recline. You said I was a jerk. It was all about your knees and comfort. So stop with denials. Me. Me. Me. Millennials.

    I think you have me confused with another poster because I have not posted those thoughts.

    @ISUCyclones2015, where does this fit in your all-time ranking of posts in a thread you've started? This one doesn't seem to be losing energy. It has to in your Top 25 by now.

    No, I picture him as being very irritated by the posts in this thread, but he's made even more irritated because every time he wants to check on any updates, he's gotta ride his damn stair lift back down to the dining room where his '02 Compaq sits in a Sam's Club computer desk with a cracked plastic chair mat underneath.

    You forgot to highlight the irony of this part: So who is selfish? Me. Me. Me. Millenial.

    I"ve actually never carried more than a back pack on. It always fits under the seat in front of me.

    Keep trying.

    Yep I carry a backpack on, but store it under the seat in front of me. Keep one change of clothes, in case my suitcase gets lost, along with snacks, tablet, book, etc.

    I fly close to 200 flights a year and my company spends basically someone's salary's worth to do so. I thought I was entitled and I'll admit that I probably am compared to the average flyer that does 5 flights a year. But there's a forum that's at least 10x bigger than CF that is dedicated to frequent flyers. The entitlement on those forums put people in this thread to shame.

    You want to know how entitled people are? Walk on over to Flyer Talk and just shake your head in amazement.

    Probably top 10 at this point! There's some classics I started during my college years that are definitely in CF lore.

    I have United's Global Services status. This group is the most entitled bunch of travelers I've ever seen.

    When I first got the status, I was standing in the very front of the United 1K line waiting for them to start boarding (as I knew I would be invited to board first). Another Global Services guy pushes his way past me. Doesn't say anything, just pushes past.

    On another occasion, I'm at the Frankfurt airport at the gate taking care of something with an agent when another Global Services guy comes up (doesn't stand in line), reaches over me to hand something to the agent, saying "I'm Global Services." Seriously? So am I pal. Wait your turn.

    It is one thing to enjoy your status (first to board, special help with tight connections, the security line bypass room in Terminal 1 at O'Hare, extra care from flight attendants), but another to push your way past people and demand service like a petulant child.

    Top 10, huh? I was thinking only Top 25 as I recall that you've had some doozies, especially ones where you become the topic!

    Wait, wait, wait. So Stormin is saying he can recline all he wants because the seat lets him (which is true - but doesn’t mean 50% of people don’t think he’s a prick for doing so) but he’s complaining that people bring carryons which they are allowed to do??? Talking out of both sides of his mouth. Color me shocked.
