Senior Stories

This had to be one of the worst few minutes of flying that I have ever endured. My story began as I was taking a flight from Paris, France to Athens, Greece with Air France. The flight was supposed to take around 3 to 3.5 hours. And for most of that time it was just […]

This took place not long ago when I had to fly to Singapore for a business meeting. I had taken a night flight to return to Bangkok hoping for some sleep. With luck, as I approached the gate, I could see no small children or babies. Breathing a sigh of relief I sat down and waited […]

I was flying United from ORD to LAX and upon boarding was pleasantly surprised to find that I was upgraded to First Class. My inner elitist crept up as I walked along the ramp, embracing for whatever reason the façade and aura that this is how I usually fly.

This happened on a flight from MUC to IAD last year on Lufthansa. Before boarding the plane, my wife and I hoped to use up some of our spare expiring miles to buy some duty-free booze. We asked a young lady who worked there and spoke good English if they took miles and she said […]

Whenever I fly, I pay extra for the exit row since I am 6’5″ tall. I also always book the aisle seat in that row. I try to fly business or first class but that is not always an option. As I was in the gate area I hear an elderly woman on her cell […]

It was April Fools Day 2013 and we were flying Southwest from RDU to MCO. We were seated front row left. An overweight senior male was seated aisle seat, front row right. Thirty minutes into our 1.5 hour flight we started to smell poop. We were thinking maybe someone’s baby needed a diaper change?

I was on a flight from Toronto to Budapest a few years ago, with a stop in Frankfurt. This was on Lufthansa during a strike, so a lot of people were pretty crabby as there was no meal service (they did, however, give out large bags of chips to everyone, and still had beverage service, […]

My husband and I were connecting in Phoenix via Southwest Airlines and finishing out our last 45 minutes until landing at John Wayne Airport. We were riding up front on the left hand side of the plane. A very large, overweight female senior was seated in the front row on the right side. She was […]

This peculiar although hilarious incident happened recently onboard an eight and a half hour flight from London to Orlando with myself, step-mother, father and younger sister (aged 10). We were seated in the back row which wasn’t much fun. We were the last to get our food, had to deal with people standing next to […]

Just rude, and then just weird… I was recently on a flight from Hong Kong to Vancouver with Cathay Pacific. I had paid $100.00 CAD for the privilege of sitting in an exit seat for the 13 hour flight. I am not sure why, but this particular flight was jam-packed with elderly people. Being in […]

A16. I love that number. As anyone who flies Southwest knows, that’s a magical number. That number means you can sit just about anywhere you want. On this particular flight from Denver to Ont., California, I chose to sit in the aisle seat of the bulkhead. People streamed past me to further aisles. On the […]

Not necessarily a Flight From Hell, but it was a little frustrating, and one you just have to shake your head at. I was on American Airlines Flight 5 from DFW to HNL on Septmber 2nd, 2010. In the boarding area there were several children playing and laughing, and immediately my first thought was please let these children be […]
