I do the opposite. I dont use overhead luggage & wait for "final boarding call" to get on the plane, intentionally getting on last. I have no use for standing in a 10 minute long jetway line waiting for people to fight to get into their seats, stuff bags into the overhead etc...
I also dont stand up IMMEDIATELY when the unbuckle seatbelt light comes on, as I have no use for standing in a 6 minute line (moving nowhere) inside a plane. Why people do this I have no clue. It's intriguing to me in the illogical nature of it all, but it happens on every flight.
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.
