My husband I had just arrived at the Seattle airport after our honeymoon Alaskan cruise. The flight back to Minneapolis was supposed to depart at 11 pm, but much to my disgust the flight was delayed due to bad weather. So there we sat exhausted, in much need of sleep, with no options of catching the much needed z’s other than laying on the dirtiest floor I have ever seen, waiting for this bad weather to pass. Finally at about 1:45 am, we are informed the plane will begin boarding in the next thirty minutes.
By this time I am just happy I will finally get to lie back and hopefully get some sleep. At about 2:30 we board the plane. I look around us and much to my surprise we are the only two in our aisle. An extra seat to stretch out into – how great. Across from us was another couple; probably in their mid to late twenties. There were no children in sight. Then the safety briefing begins, and the couple across from us are talking loudly. One of the flight attendants walks over and asks them to quiet down. The captain announces all seats need to be upright and tray tables up and locked. Again the couple I thought would be perfect aisle mates causes a fuss; they have the seats reclined. Two flight attendants have to ask them to put them upright before it is done.
Finally we take off and I hope the problems are over. I close my eyes and then I hear this gross sucking sound. I look over to the couple and find the woman on her partner’s lap engaged in a full on make out session. I sit hoping the flight attendants will say something. No one does, and the making out escalates into heavy petting and more kissing. I couldn’t believe no one said anything. I finally couldn’t take it anymore. I turned the volume up on my headphones and shut my eyes until it was time to land. I put my seat upright and glance over to find two tousled hair twenty-somethings red faced and with fresh hickeys. Next time take care of business before getting on the plane. Nobody wants to see what should be done behind closed doors.
