    so isnt it supposed that the airline should be paying me instead??
    Seat nearst toilet is the safest as you can run inside and lock yourself in it in case of terrorist attack.

    You cannot have your bags or luggage above you or under your feet if you are seating at Exit row seat. Have to place your luggage elsewhere with others. I have been assigned the exit row seats twice, nice legroom! Especially when you are in a budget airline's aircraft but you'll lost time trying to get your luggage when others simply just get it from above.

    That is incredibly Singaporean...
    In SG, China and probably HKG, people go mad once the plane lands and rush for their luggage...

    A few minutes more won't kill you...

    Anyway, all of us can vote with our wallets. Those who feel aggrieved paying the extra dough can use the services of another airline, whilst those who are glad to pay will now have a choice.
    If enough people walk away, SIA will eat humble pie, or everyone will just have to toe the line

    As someone said, SIA is a profit making organisation. I think I should buy some of their shares now!

    I dunno about you but I hate the idea of going through the super tight human traffic of a budget airline aisle to the end and take your luggage. Later to have to squeeze all the way back.

    Thats what I often wonder also, everybody rush like mad for their bags, then all stand stupidly in the aisle for so long to wait for the cabin door to open.

    So IF i'm the first one who stand at the aisle with the bag, I'm the first few to leave the plane, means i'm the first few who can get passport chopped, means i'm the first few who get to reach the luggage belt (not that it matters since the order of luggage appearing is rather random...but hey, i'm singaporean, who cares?), means i have a SLIGHTLY REMOTE chance of leaving the airport earlier than the rest by 10 mins.... YAY!!!

    to be fair,

    from my own experience, europeans are just as bad, if not worse when it comes to boarding the plane and exiting.. it is just a global trend.. i have given up.

    i concur. I absolutely hate taking ryanair/easyjet flights where the brits like to start standing and queuing one hour before the actual boarding time. Why can't everyone just relax and seat down, and only start standing to queue when the airport staff comes to check the boarding passes?

    i can understand easyjet actually - it's free seating, so there is a reason

    but ryanair has seat numbers!

    it's like rushing to a movie seating when you've already gotten your seat. i might have gotten one or the other mixed up though. but one of these two has seat numbers allocated, one does not.

    Both Ryanair and Easyjet has no seat numbers allocation actually. I've taken both of them frequently enough over the past year to know hahaha..... I really notice that the british have almost the same "kiasu" attitudes that our neighbouring countries have been so disapproving of us of. Long queues for freebies, rushing for aeroplane seats, rushing to get off the plane, queue cutting, rushing into the tube to grab available seats and ignoring old people/ppl with difficulties...the Brits do it all the time. Maybe, just maybe we inherited the kiasuism from our colonial days.

    hrm weird, i swear ryanair has seat allocation at the check-in counter..

    but yar, i'm frequently amused by it. of course you do meet perfect british gentlemen and ladies, but i haven't really found many in london - more in the cumbria (lake district) area.. which made the touring there really quite pleasant..

    But if your GF comes and meets you in the airport and gives you 10 minutes of kisses and hugs then you'll be at the same time as anyone leaving the airport.
