Try to recall the last time you enjoyed flying. If you’re like most travelers, it may take a while. Though marathon security lines, airline delays, and turbulence “flightmares” can ruin even the happiest of vacations, the real culprits are camouflaged in plain clothes.
Over one hundred thousand names appear on the TSA No-Fly List, and Boarding All Rows will convince you that number is grossly inadequate. Why? It’s because airports, our magical gateways to the world, are full of jackasses.
While American society has been creeping towards tolerance of others, our interactions as individuals are commonly rude, indifferent, and infected by a “me first, then you” attitude. People can’t fix what they won’t admit, and Boarding gives them a big push down the road to redemption.
