That always seemed a bit odd for me too. I understand getting all handicapped, elderly or those traveling with an Infant on first, but never really got the front to back loading pattern that force people to walk past seated passengers. I just love the comments of some of the more uncivilized ones as they pass me in First or Business Class.

Absolutely NOT true.........I've seen exactly 2 hot flight attendants on any flight I've been on in the last 3 years. I average about 100k miles per year in first class

Many, if not most, major airports now have cellphone waiting areas for people in vehicles that are picking up arrivals. Works great. That's what a lot of in-plane calls are about; the others are simply social-media addicts who can't wait another minute to check their Facebook notifications. Hell, who cares; doesn't bother me.

I think you would see an increase in passengers randomly stuffing their carry-ons in the first available overhead bins. I know, I've done it. I was late boarding and the plane was very full. I saw an open spot near the forward cabin and took advantage of it. Made it easy get to when I disembarked. Just a hunch...

I own the un-official record at KROC for keeping the nose wheel off the ground when landing, I was in a 727 and had all the T/R's out and kept that nose wheel off the ground WELL past the TDZ, got called up in the tower after landing but it was worth it!

The things we do to pass the time to make it interesting! Dave

This UAE jet jockey kept his nosewheel off the ground for quite some time, too, and holds the unofficial record for the shortest 777 landing roll. I think my Dad's Cessna 310 rolled further than that.

That is a man I am on the same page with but my nose gear float was MUCH longer and there were only boxes in the back and I did not jump on the brakes! With no people but boxes there is no one to write a NASA report about the landing! You can pretty much do what you want and listen to them yell in the tower later!

3. I get upgrades sometimes, other than the free booze, I would rather stay in my exit row seat.
Not 100% true. If it is medical supplies, they must let you keep them with you.

Never thought of it from a weight distribution perspective. I was a helicopter mechanic (CH47D) and subsequently crew chief as i gained more flight logistics experience. The only time we really worried about weight distribution was when doing sling loads and carrying a hummer or something similar onboard.
Good point.
