The entire first round of Airline Madness, our tournament of airline annoyances, is now live and open for voting. We have eight match-ups that need your votes to help us move closer to crowning our top airline pet peeve. Polls close on Friday at 11:59PM EDT, so don’t delay. The winners will advance to the second round, which will be posted here on Gadling next week.
Make your voices heard in all of our battles listed below. There are so many airline annoyances to choose from, it’s almost hard to pick the ones that are the worst. This is all the more reason to join the debate in the comments. Let us know what you think!
