It's getting ridiculous

This just in! Terrorists were planning on using clothes as explosives in airplanes, from now on, everyone must fly naked!

Ok, so it's not an actual headline, but at the rate it's going I won't be surprised when full cavity searches are "standard procedure", hell, they already fondle old ladies, cause everyone knows that grandma can be one mean terrorist.

When I was a kid, I used to love flying in an airplane, now it's one of the most deplorable things you can do, even worse now that I won't be able to fight with damn dehydration by bringing my own water or gatorade in, I'll have to drink the 0.42 oz. of soda they give you. Screw that, if you're getting on a plane, demand that the airline have a large bottle of chilled gatorade waiting for you inside the plane, I think if consumers begin to demand stuff, they may get it.

We should all as the world community use the money we would've otherwise spent at the duty free and fund research into teleportation. Anyway, enough ranting, I gotta go to work

Or the sky marshal will get up from his seat and put two through you for causing a scene. They already had a couple of spurts around '03 where people with mental illness were running around on the plane and the air marshals used arguably excessive force to restrain them.

A couple of years ago (2004) I was flying to the US from France, and I used my diplomatic passport (those things are sex) to bring an axe on the plane.

...

Seriously. An AXE.

Hmm, I was thinking more prior to boarding... while making reservations, "Hi, I want to buy a ticket to Kuala Lampoor, please install a tap of ice cold beer on my sit, I'll fax you a list of the rest of the things I'll need to make my $2,000 ticket worth its price"

Seriously, why are plane tickets so damn expensive, they no longer serve you meals in a lot of flights, if they do, they charge you for them and even then you get a sandwhich because small plastic disposable knives have been catalogued as weapons of lethal capability.

It's really not too difficult to get airlines to give you stuff, on one of my flights to Canada the airline screwed up with my ticket, which resulted in me waiting an extra day to fly, I asked to speak to the manager when I was checking in at the counter and told her how badly I had been treated (slighty exaggerated, but not too much) and that the only thing that would make me fly with them again would be for them to bump me to business class. She was a bit reluctant at first, but agreed in the end.

If your airline rubs you the wrong way, demand an upgrade! You might get it, and you know what? in business class, you get warm nuts. No, not THOSE you perv, ... you gotta pay extra for that.
