I was recently flying back from Rome with my boyfriend, and we had booked our tickets at the last minute so we couldn’t get seats together. It was our own fault and unfortunate, but it wasn’t the end of the world and we didn’t try to change our seats. We boarded the plane and waved to […]

Ruing The Rules

Having flown from Atlanta to Las Vegas in April 2008, we were well aware of Delta’s baggage rules. BUT, a week later upon checking in to return to Atlanta, we were told about new baggage fees. So we shuffled things together (in a rush, because seat selection was at the gate) and avoided the ‘extra […]

About 15 years ago, I was taking a trip from SFO to Montreal for a big convention/conference.  My flight connected in ORD.  There was a female co-worker of mine who was also travelling to the same conference (in fact there were 5 or 6 co-workers on the same flight).  She had managed to snag a […]

A few months ago I was on a flight with my elderly mother from Delhi India to Agra India, home of the Taj Mahal. To begin with, our flight was delayed 5 hours due to dust storms. We waited all day at the airport and finally boarded a tiny Kingfisher Airlines propeller plane. The flight took […]

I am a business woman that travels frequently. I was already in my aisle seat on a recent flight from Atlanta to Salt Lake City when a heafty man in a business suit approached my row and said to me, “If you will just scoot over missy I will sit in the aisle.” Now, I […]

Last summer I went on vacation with my roommate and her sister. I was flying back from Florida to Seattle and let me tell you what a horrible trip that was. I got up half way through the flight to go to the bathroom. I was wearing a pair of white Bermuda shorts and a […]

I was flying to Istanbul, Turkey from New York, which is a long flight to start with. But no worries, right, because it’s overnight and you can sleep a bit on the plane, wake up, and be at your destination. Or so goes the plan. Of course, carefully laid plans and air travel never seem […]

On a non-stop flight from London’s Gatwick to Minneapolis, I was exhausted after a whirlwind 10-day trip to England, my first time over The Pond. All I wanted to do was sleep. Unfortunately, I didn’t remember ear plugs. I also had the misfortune to sit in front of and across the aisle from two little […]

I was flying from Cyprus to Frankfurt, Germany on Cyprus Air. An elderly Greek woman had been in the boarding area and was struggling with a suitcase and many helpful people assisted her and I was impressed with the European people’s kindness and respect of this elderly woman. I was seated in my window seat […]

[Mature content] Many years ago, I was on a flight from Newark to Atlanta. In the boarding area was a thirtyish, very attractive woman. And she was dressed rather skimpily. It became obvious that she was with a very old, likely wealthy man. The appearances were that of a ‘gold-digger’ situation. The flight was only […]
