I arrive at the Milwaukee airport in late August, looking forward to a quick direct flight to Dallas for work. As I arrive, I get an update from the airline: flights delayed for an hour. Oh well, have a couple of beers on the company dime and still get to Dallas in time for dinner.

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 […]

I just got back from a return flight home after a wonderful holiday on the Mediterranean island of Majorca. A typical holiday destination for us British tourists! This isn’t exactly a flight from hell story but I did experience two rather unusual toilet incidents that I thought I’d submit.

Last February I flew to Vietnam to visit my brother who teaches English in the Mekong Delta. I wound up getting stuck over there for a few extra weeks because my passport and visa were stolen and I couldn’t leave the country until I had obtained new documents from the Vietnamese government.

I’d had bad trips before (no pun intended), but little did I know about this one in particular. Our stay in Varadero, Cuba, 02/2010, was good but not great. My sis and dad fell ill. When the holiday came to an end, we left at midnight to be at the airport at 3:00 a.m. All […]

Not long after being hospitalized for a terrible kidney infection, my fiance and I decided to fly from Tokyo to the Middle East to visit my family. We flew with a large Middle Eastern airline, which is usually wonderful; I stocked up on all my medications and supplements, and we began our trip.

My wife, our 14-month old son and I were flying from Baltimore to Los Angeles to visit my family for Christmas. Although we had been semi-frequent fliers, this was our first time flying with a child.

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 […]

Oh, god, this is so ridiculous, I wouldn’t believe it, but I swear it’s true. Flight from Zurich, Switzerland to Atlanta on Delta Airlines (I take this flight every year home to visit my family). A man and a young girl were sitting a few rows behind me. I only remembered him because he was […]
