[Mature content] I flew on Sept. 11, 2010; I was on my way home to the East Coast from the Upper Midwest because my mother’s cancer had become terminal. I was needed to help with her care, and I obviously just wanted to be there. So to say I was emotional was an understatement. While […]

Although this happened a few years ago it has reinforced my need for an aisle or window seat. I had flown down to Cancun with my mom, aunt and cousin. We had a great time except for my aunt taking in more that her fair share of tequila. As we departed our lovely villa by […]

This is not quite a flight from hell, just a small bit of torture. I was flying back from the midwest on an overbooked flight. I had the center seat, and the window seat was still open. I was looking carefully at people as they walked down the aisle to see who was eying the […]

[Mature content] My wife and I were flying to Acapulco, Mexico for our honeymoon. We were pretty excited, but I was also a little nervous. I had flown before and have even flown international, but for some reason this flight to Mexico had all the signs of being a total fiasco. First of all, we […]

I was on a flight from JFK New York to Poland. While standing in line to go through security, a Russian guy in front of me didn’t listen to the security lady next to the checkpoint. She told him twice to put his laptop in a separate container, and I guess he didn’t listen. So […]

[Mature content] Several years ago, I was travelling from the US to Australia. About midway over the Pacific, when the meal had been served and the lights had all been dimmed, I had my seat reclined, dozing. Not asleep, but just dozing and aware of what was going on around me. I was in an […]

[Mature content] American Airlines, LAX to JFK Business class March, 2010 A Sunday at noon. It was so incredibly crowded even American’s priority security line was lagging, big-time. By the time we got on the plane everyone was getting a little bit cranky. I always like a window seat; particularly on long flights. When I […]

On a recent redeye from LAX to BWI, I was traveling alone on a chock-full plane, seated beside a skinny, nasal-voiced couple in their late 20s. The woman had the window, her boyfriend the center, and myself, the aisle. Despite the fact that it was 11pm when we took off, their conversation and canoodling looked […]

I wanted to plan a trip to Cancun where I had vacationed a few times before. I was single at the time and the all-inclusives were based on double occupancy, so for a few hundred more it was worth bringing a travel mate. My ex-wife, yes ex, and I got along well, so I asked […]

I am wondering how often flight attendants see incidents like the one I experienced last week ? I sat next to an attractive woman for an 8 hour flight. We are both married. We shared some drinks and wound up falling asleep cuddling in each others arms and holding hands, for the rest of the […]

On a relatively quick flight from Dallas to Orlando, I was seated next to a pretty cool guy around 28-29 years old. I usually refrain from talking to people on planes to maintain my sanity and to make sure there aren’t any false senses of friendship which lead to hours of conversation. About 20 minutes […]

As a businessman, I constantly travel in and outside the continental U.S. For various reasons I have experienced nothing out of the ordinary for the past 10 years. All that was about to change, though. Last week I boarded a flight from Houston to LAX and took my seat in the first class section (not […]
