Why must I get off?

Flew from my home town thru Milwaukee; a 40 minute stop and then on to Baltimore. In Milaukee they told us 'we all had to get off' whether we were travelling thru or not. Now that means dragging luggage off the plane, and then getting on again with all the trouble that ensues. My husband made a mild fuss and complaint, the ticket agent came aboard and they let us stay on (along with about 3 other people travelling thru). seems they don't even know their own rules, or the purpose of them. What sense does getting OFF make when you have already cleared security. Any input?

I'm confused as to why you would have to drag luggage off the plane. Every time I've been in this situation, folks were allowed to leave their carry on luggage on the plane. Of course, the airline would not be responsible if anything were stolen, but then, if there isn't anyone on the plane, who's going to steal it?<BR><BR>And normally, people like to get off and stretch their legs, get something to eat/drink, or use the restroom. Not every one wants to stay cooped up in their seats. I've never heard of having to go through security again - unless you mean the security at the gate? Just a bit confused.

I think it makes it much easier to clean the plane and get it ready for next flight. Dont take it personal.

Just got back from Mexico with a connection at LAX. They did make us take all carry on items and any other personal belongings off of the plane when we boarded new passengers. They claim it is for security reasons. Making the plane easier to clean makes more sense. Why not just say that?

They give you some &quot;other&quot; reason (&quot;security&quot because they assume no one will question it.<BR>

It is good that they make you get off. I have been stuck on planes waiting for people to board en toute somewhere when it has been freezing cold outside and they open all the doors to get some fresh air in. The hostesses all pull out windproof jackets and leave the passengers to freeze. I go mad now if they do not let you off after nearly catching pneumonia.

Did you get off by yourself or with others?
