Those who are used to traveling with Low Cost companies, will have well carved the apocalyptic scenes in their minds during the embarkations.
We arrived at the airport. A quick look to know the Gate number and, in the race, to the check in desk. Then, it was the turn of the controls. In a resigned way, we went to the metal detector. Many, cursing for having wrong row. Others, forced to strip themselves of any object and garment. There were those who walked without shoes and socks; who, however, was crying to see his hand luggage, literally raped by security agents. Husbands who cursed their wives, guilty of wearing too many jewels. Wives who cursed their husbands because they were too slow.
Then…. the highlight came. The embarkation.
The moment of embarkation was something unique and imaginable. Sometimes, the scenes were almost apocalyptic. Interminable Indian files. People who faked any illness. Others, capable of inventing even teleportation.
Everything, just to move on. Because once there was only one rule: who arrives late, badly lodges. No assigned seats on the plane. Everyone against everyone. And sometimes it even happened that travelers were sorted on two different shuttles. In that case, it became a formula one challenge, with travelers telling the shuttle driver to overtake the runway.
On board, the inevitable "glorious head" that had arrived first on board, began to mark the territory. For all your group.
"Go ahead. Take a ride and lock the seats for everyone"Their friends would have said a little earlier.
And, the glorious head, like a good leader, would not be pulled back. Open the suitcase by hand, he would start to put the contents of the same on each small seat. It happened, then, to get on the plane and find seats occupied by books, jackets, sweaters, garters, bras ....
This was what happened a few years ago, flying with EasyJet, RyanAir and many Low-Cost companies. Today, the situation has changed. Fortunately, for the better. Once checked in, you will automatically get your assigned seat. The downside is the costs. In fact, the service is not free. With our tips, however, it could be. From this link, we explain how it is possible to do it.
