Where do I start with this little adventure? There’re two things here… PART 1: Keep in mind: My mom is disabled and walks with the assistance of a cane. I have a messed up back. We arrive at the airport early. The flight status is ON TIME. The first sign of trouble: We get to […]

A very rude and obnoxious passenger was on my flight and he made it hell. My girlfriend and I were returning back to NYC from Singapore going through Heathrow a total of 20+hours, 13hours from Singapore to London. My girlfriend broke her foot while visiting my family over here, and was placed in the bulkhead […]

On occasion I will take trips with my wife, her for business, me just playing the role of a kept man. I personally do not care for flying though she flies about 4 times a month, so she’s a pro. On a recent trip back from California descending into Charlotte at night, we were going […]

Upon re-boarding in HKG, the Captain announced pre-takeoff that the mechanical water system was not working and there would be no water available in the potable water taps or toilet water system. Therefore, the Captain stated the Flight Attendants had placed […]

It was April 16, 2007–Marathon Monday in Boston–and a very bad storm had blown into town. Unfortunately that was also the day we were flying with our children and my husband’s parents to celebrate my mother-in-law’s birthday at Colonial Williamsburg. Our flight to Newport News, Va was one of the few to get out on […]

Okay, you can’t, and that’s my point. I have learned, over the years, a simple, basic fact that really helps me to have a decent flying experience no matter what actually happens on the flight. And that fact is: Flying sucks. The seats suck. The other people are likely to suck. The food, if it […]

I have always flown on Southwest Airlines for my travel needs. So when I found out I had to fly on Delta for a business conference, I was not exactly thrilled. Aside from having to pay for my luggage (yes, even carry-ons), I never really cared for their hospitality. I was flying from Tampa, FL […]

I was flying a few years ago with my family and for some reason Dad wasn’t able to reserve seats for us near each other. I was sitting behind my little brother, who was eight at the time, and the FA seats a little girl next to him who was about the same age. After […]

I was on a flight from Europe to North America many years ago and this man decided to take his shoes off which was OK because he was seated behind me. But then he went to the bathroom with no shoes on and on his return decided to stick his feet in the space between […]

I was moving back from France to Canada. I was moving home with my two children, ages seven and four. I was exhausted, it had been a long day and the kids did not sleep the whole flight. My son decided to repeatedly play with the shade of the guy’s window behind me. On top of […]

I recently took a trip from Long Island, NY to Cincinnati, OH on US Airways Express (Air Wisconsin). I haven’t flown US Airways in a long, long time, but they were the cheapest available. I arrived at the airport, checked in fine only to discover that they are now charging $25.00 to check bags… that’s […]

I am a large man. I am 6’2″ tall and weigh approximately 380lbs (however, if I weighed about 280 lbs, I would look fairly normal, to illustrate my size). Anyway, I am sitting on the window aisle and we are probably about 20 minutes into a 90 minute flight. I am sitting at a window […]
