Seat 29E

October 19, 2008

in Non-Stories received a document in PDF format that purportedly was an original complaint letter written by a passenger to an airline company. While a quick net search revealed the real poop – the letter has been making the rounds for a while – we’re going to post it anyway since it’s right on target with the theme of our website.

The writer’s complaint was about the proximity of his or her seat to the lavatory including its foul odors and sounds made from those in it. The letter discusses construction of a “stink shield,” and even provides illustrations including the one below:

A check with the urban legends website revealed the story to be surprisingly True. To read the letter, click here.

Want to avoid a seat from hell? SeatGuru and SeatExpert have airplane seat maps showing locations of good seats and bad ones. Reviews can be obtained by scrolling over seats using the mouse’s cursor. And yes, locations of the dreaded lavatories are also noted.

LOL! That was pretty funny! Made me think back to our "crew rest seats" that were always near a lav and always seemed to invite people to lean on us through the curtain. I can't count the number of times I woke up with someone's ass in my face!
