The more I fly, the more I realize many of the delays that airplanes have are preventable and in fact caused by people just being too self-centered. For example, when airlines started charging to check bags, there was an influx of people who started packing everything in a carry-on bag.

I don’t blame those people at all. Who wants to pay for their luggage to be rummaged though and lost? For the most part, it’s just all-around better if we are only packing what we need on a trip anyway. It means you’re less likely to lose things and you don’t have so much stuff to lug around from place to place. [More]
