I had the aisle seat on a two-hour flight heading to London Heathrow Airport. It was a 3+3 cabin configuration; to the left of me sat two smartly dressed English businessmen.

I was flying from West Palm Beach back to New York on a small Delta regional type of aircraft. In the first class were single seats on the right and doubles on the left, with one small bathroom in the front of the plane.

I loathe flying. The entire experience is miserable, but worst of all is the seatmate lottery.

This happened May 2011 on a flight from Chicago to Atlanta. I was going to visit my aunt and celebrate her daughter’s (my cousin’s) graduation from high school. My daughter (1 y.o.) and I flew down to Atlanta and had a great flight and a great trip. My daughter is well-behaved on planes and will […]

A group of friends and I were flying from Tampa to Las Vegas. As is our tradition whenever we make such pilgrimages to Sin City, we immediately started drinking on the plane even though it was morning time. To save on costs we supplement drinks we purchase on board with beverages that we bring along […]

Once upon a time on a flight from Germany to New York, around 50 people from India decided to visit their relatives. It would have been a nice flight, but I’m sorry to say that the spices they use in their food is not good for the atmosphere. Besides that, a couple had their little […]

I was flying from Germany to Kenia with British Airways. The first annoyance was the arrangement of the seats: I had to sit straight up all the time because the seat rows were so tight that my knees bumped against the seat in front of mine, and I am a quite small woman. I don’t […]

The smell of death. A battlefield? A morgue? No. I smelled this awful aroma on a Southwest airplane. Sometime circa the summer of 2000, three friends and I were returning to San Jose from LAX. Everything started off normally. We arrived, checked in, and patiently waited an hour to board our flight. This is where […]

Grossed Out By Gas

Well, I guess it was just a matter of time before I had a story about a flight from hell I had. I just returned from visiting my daughter in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The entire trip was perfect with the exception of a young kid seated in front of me during the Hartford to Charlotte […]

Just have to say that this site has been an oasis to me – to reflect and perhaps even laugh about the calamities we encounter in commercial aviation. One such nightmare was onboard Air India, or “Scare India” as my family called it then. On or around 1998 I was travelling from DXB to BKK and was […]

Story #1 Several years ago, back in my single days, my friends and I went on a trip to Thailand. Our flight out of Minneapolis was cancelled, and we were put on a connecting flight to Seattle, then Tokyo, then on to Bangkok. The flight from Tokyo to Bangkok was the one that made me […]

My flight originated in Phoenix, destination Dallas.  I had the window seat and was already in place when he walked up and placed his bag in the overhead bin.  As soon as he raised his arms I knew this would not be a pleasant flight. I made a quick “self check” just to validate that the […]
