People who stand up as soon as the plane lands, can you explain why? Not being snarky, but I don't see how it benefits much?

If I’m in the aisle, I stand up. 6’4 and I’m ready to stretch my legs. If I’m at the window I start scooting over as soon as the person next to me is cleared so I’m not holding up the people further back. If each row clears only 15s faster, that means the poor slobs in the back can get off 10m faster. I think they appreciate it.

What I don’t understand is why it is questionable or considered rude / impatient if some people want to stand while they wait to exit the aircraft? If a flight is late, of course people should allow others to get off quickly to make connections, but if it is on time, who cares if people are standing or sitting while waiting to de-plane?

Because it feels good to stand up? Why do ppl have such an issue with this, what the hell does it matter to you if I move from my aisle seat to stand in the 12 inches of space next to me

I like being efficient so I’m standing up and grabbing my bag while others try to hold the line to be nice. Not sure why it’s considers dumb to stand up.

This is why I stand too... especially if I’m towards the front of the plane.

They charge you money to board first; they have yet to charge you to get off first. So it’s a free lunch, and people like free lunch.

But effectively they do charge you more to get off first i.e. first class

I have been that person, because my next flight is in 40 minutes, so I want to get ahead of the crowd asap. Another time is because I have to pee ASAP.

If I’m in an aisle seat I’m going to stand up and stretch and start getting myself organized, grab my bag if it’s easy to get to, etc. We all have places to be, let’s be efficient. The people that stand up and start inching forward when there’s *nowhere to go yet* can chill the eff out though

I do it so.... 1) run to the restroom 2) run to get the gate checked bag 3) run to get the Uber (depending on airport) --- LGA is insane 4) GTFO the flight!

I do it to stretch my legs and be respectful of the people in the row beside me. Why does it bother you what other people do?

I get up because I want blood to circulate through my legs again. I also sneakily want to signal people ahead of me to hurry up and get off so I can get off. It works 🤷🏻‍♀️

Why spend a minute more on the plane than you have to? Get up. Get out. Let the plane board and fly out again.
