After a long trip sometimes you just want to go home. And no form of transportation makes that longing for your bed stronger than air travel. Between the ham-handed fisting from the TSA, the letting everyone board before you, the fat guy in the middle seat, and no-frills waiting rooms, the last thing you want to hear is "we are overbooked and need volunteers not to board".
