    Basically several years of business travel hardened me into having zero tolerance for people who only fly once or twice a year. GTHOOMW.



    As Sugarbush they only have receivers on one-side of the gate.

    At 6'3", the less time I spend crammed into an airline seat the better, so I'd personally rather stand in that scenario.

    That is a good location. Lots of good real estate at a reasonable price and it give you a better launching pad to a bunch of ski areas. You commute to ski will get much better.

    That is my opinion also. As soon as the plane lands I need to stand up.

    I have Restless Leg Syndrome. Pity the people near me. I can stay within my own space - but can't stop being a fidget. Nor can I get a wink of sleep - red eye or not. I was a Platinum business traveler at one point in my life - so it's not because I'm recreational flying joey (thankfully pre 9/11 when I sometimes could have D.C.-10 middle row to myself - I don't do well packed like a sardine lol). Rarely go to movies - drives me nuts to sit that long unless it's the most amazing movie ever.

    . The BS about overhead compartments is funny. I have never ever ever had to put underneath. For business I can get 4 days of clothes in a half size carry on - always space for those. I pack light because luggage pickup is hell on earth.

    And you should thank them for acting differently. If everyone waited to get on/off the plane as you do, then you'd be in line with them, just delayed.

    They completely destroyed one of sister's ski bindings. Got crushed in something I guess. But I think I've done 5 round trips with them, never had a problem. They got all my stuff to Prince George, that was a 3 plane trip with short layovers, was impressed with that.
