    Yeah, the queueing in line in departures is the behaviour of a simpleton.

    I want to spend as little time as possible pointlessly sitting on the plane waiting to go and more time at the bar chatting up randy air hostesses.

    Go to departures a few minutes before you need to, sit down, read a paper or something, wait for the scrum of plebs to subside, then breeze on at your leisure.

    Ahhhhhh!

    The same people can't wait for the plane to come to a stop before standing up either. They must love waiting at the luggage conveyer.

    Also the brain donors that sit in a massive queue to go left at a roundabout. Go in the empty right lane, go right around the roundabout, and you’re laughing.

    Don't spread that little gem around! It'll stop being a gem if everyone starts doing it.

    When they say 'Last call for Flight AA****' they mean - 'Relax, you got a good 45 mins before your gate closes'.

    I was talking with some friends about little shortcuts and whatnot that you take in day to day life, and I mentioned this one. I got a few laughs and knowing nods of acknowledgement, apart from my mates wife who got very shirty and insisted that this manoeuvre is illegal ffs

    I think a lot of the time, the queues to board are as a result of people’s eagerness to ensure space for their paraphernalia in the overhead bins. This is especially true on smaller aircraft and moreso in the U.S. where the carry on allowances can be ridiculous meaning the bins get full quickly and you run the risk of having to check a bag that you would normally carry on. There’s a simple answer to that however - avoid low cost airlines, obtain platinum frequent flyer status and then simply enjoy priority boarding without the sniff of a queue and breeze past the moaning proletariat, all the while enjoying their puzzled and gutted expressions as they realise their place the front of the queue does not mean shit..

    Yeah, I gotta say, that bugs me too. I usually choose aisle seats for legroom, so i’ve made a point now of not taking my belt off or getting up until the doors are opened. You can almost see the people next to you twitching in their seat and approaching meltdown. Same for phones, as soon as the rubber hits the tarmac, you see everyone reaching for their phones - could it not wait a few minutes more?

    It gives me great joy to see the faces of the airport que ers when I rock into the plane later on (fuck queing) with my 4 year old lad and our young baby.
    They're carefully crafted plane nests get a serious going over.

    I just despise queueing full stop. I absolutely fucking hate it when people take it upon themselves to create a queue when it’s just completely unnecessary (burger vans), impractical (petrol station forecourts) or just socially incorrect (pubs).

    I was in a builders merchants this morning and a couple of absolute nipples decide to form a queue. In a fucking builders merchants for facks sake!

    Does my fucking swede in. People will start queueing as soon as the gate is displayed ffs.

    As others have said, that's easily enough time for a coupla ice cold Heineys and to saunter onboard with no queues left at the gate or the stairs onto the plane.

    Fecking muppets.
