The pax who complained to me about paying $31 extra for an aisle seat.
To make a long story short I asked said pax if they would run a business for less than what it cost to operate and the reply was no they would not .

It's called a moving WALKWAY for a reason... you're supposed to walk on it, everyone gets to point B quicker... not clog up the flow of traffic while takin' a breather. Tools.

....and why oh why do they have to stand 2 or 3 abreast making it impossible for anyone to pass them. Pleaaaaasssssse, stand to the right in single file so those of us with a plan can get by.

even better is when as soon as they get off said walkway/escalator they immediately stop and look around to see which way to go next or adjust their luggage, causing a chain reaction of human bowling pins.
