If it works for you, I'm happy with that. Personally I would prefer if the plane started the takeoff process the moment I sit down. I really don't enjoy sitting down and having to wait 20-40 minutes for the rest of the passengers to board. I'd rather be in the airport than in the airplane. I don't enjoy sitting for 4-6 straight hours while we're flying. I would almost prefer they pack us in horizontal cubbies at this point. Over the past 15 years, my shoulders haven't gotten any wider but the seats have certainly gotten narrower.
