Gate lice

*prrrtttttt*
"Attention! flight ua69 to cityville will begin boarding at gate E11 in 1 hour beginning with first class"
>A stampede of people in group #99 or whatever gets called last rushes to the gate to stand around in some haphazardly created line for an hour for a plans not even at the gate yet.
>"MEEP MEEP MEEP MEEP MEEP"

I have flown probably a dozen times this year and I have noticed every time while I simply walk to my seat after the last minute and the flight attendant puts my bag away for me.

    isn't there a risk of all the overhead compartments being full and they have to check your bag and potentially lose it? Or the flight being overbooked and you have to go on a different flight?

      not OP but I usually check my bags.

      if they are charging to check bags then I just bring my bags through security and ask the lady at the desk politely if I could please gate check my bag(s) for free to create more space, ease boarding and make life better for flight attendants. literally never been told "no" in the hundreds of times of done this. even overseas.

      I'm never in that much of a hurry that the five minutes waiting at the carousel is worth the degrading humiliation of thoroughly debasing yourself to squeeze your moronic bag into a bin.

      that or if I really am not brining much there are 28L bags that fit as personal items that go under the seat no issue.

        It's actually smart to check your bags if you're flying in Europe. I keep all my important shit in my bookbag and check my bag. If your bag id delayed, you can buy all new shit and the airline has to replace it for free in Europe by law, even if it's only a day late. You submit a ticket to the airline with your receipts and get all new shit. The limit is 1600 euros.

      >overhead compartments being full
      There's usually some space available somewhere that isn't near your seat, even more if your carry-on is some kind of bag instead of a hard-shell suitcase.
      Gate-checked luggage also has fewer opportunities to get lost, especially if you carry it to the plane yourself.
      >flight being overbooked
      If you have a seat on your boarding pass, you'll have a seat on your flight, no matter if you're the first or last to board.
      If you don't have a seat on your boarding pass, you should aim to be at the gate early to inquire with the gate agent about how to proceed..

    i have only ever seen 1 airport have a boarding group sign on the monitor above the gate
    there are people who dont speak the language or dont hear so well that miss whatever is said on loudspeaker
    but mostly it is anxiety about overhead baggage sure

    I don't hear well at all and can very easily miss the calls, so as soon as I see people lining up, I do as well.

    I line up because I always take 2-3 carryon items and need to occupy as much space as possible in the overhead bins for them. By the time I get to the gate the agents can't do a thing.

      Went do you have so much shit?

      I was forced to gate check my carry on when other frickers had 2 of them. I hate airline employees.

      This, I'm exactly the same, I've always got a rucksack as well as carry on luggage (big plastic duty free bag) AND a cabin suitcase barely within size limitations.
      I understand the OP's point completely and I also wait until the last minute if I'm flying literally anywhere except a return flight from Japan. If you get on that plane last in my situation, you are fricked. All overhead compartments are jammed full and you piss off flight attendants who require all luggage to be under seats during takeoff and you're going to piss off whoever you're sat next to for the whole flight, with all your shit on your lap and under your feet. It is pure hell if you're an economy gay. Board ASAP and instead of being the one cussing at the fact there's no room in the overhead compartments; you get to sit there smugly while any late-boarding passengers within a metre radius of you are the ones cussing that the overhead cabins are full (they don't even know you're the bastard that did it until you remove all your luggage at the end of the flight with a shit eating grin).
      If they forcibly remove your stuff you can get them removed from the flight, providing they witnessed you cramming two overhead cabins full of shit, start to raise their voice and refuse to back down when the airline crew usher him to shut up and be seated
      >t. Firsthand witnessed the removal situation on a Finn Air flight from Japan, I am that guy who brings back 5 suitcases of shit every time I fly from Japan

        I tend to go for carry on myself, in case someone tries to plant drugs on me in the airport

    The one that really gets me is how when the plane comes to a stop, all these cattlebrains immediately leap up and grab their shit and try to get ahead. There's still anywhere from 10 to 20+ minutes of things to happen before the crew will open the doors, so now all these dumb morons are standing packed like sardines, sweating, each one glaring at the person in front of them as if it's their fault. Meanwhile I'm sitting comfy in my seat, and all I do is reach up to grab my bag and sit back down and wait until everyone is off.

    There's statistically at least a handful of people posting here who do this shit and I just want you to know, from the bottom of my heart: you are rly fricking stupid.

    For me it just works to pretend to be a gate lice actually:
    >be me
    >last boarding group because cheaped out on flight
    >get cucked and lose out on overhead waiting in line properly
    >one day on a diff flight see the massive line and announcement to check bags
    >nope, frick that, i've got a long haul and do not want to wait for baggage to come out after that shit
    >have ticket on phone
    >as soon as they call the group after first class, cut the line since most of the lice are in second to last to board and lining up and go to scan phone
    >scan phone on my own, do not let gate attendants see the ticket
    >it scans as the machine gives zero fricks for boarding groups, just ensures you're actually on the flight
    >pretending to be gate lice thats properly boarding literally lets you be one of the first in the plane, guaranteeing overhead space, without having to actually pay a dime to get in early
    Its great bros
