My husband and I were on a flight from Atlanta to D.C. to visit his mother for Thanksgiving. Of course the flight was totally packed. My husband and I always get the aisle and the window seats. He sits at the aisle and I sit by the window. Don’t get me wrong; we like each […]

So I was flying Southwest Airlines to Boston from Phoenix.  I couldn’t sleep the night before, so I looked forward to a pillow and being curled up against a window. I got my “A” boarding pass (lucky) and sat in my window seat.

This story is going to actually be split into two parts. Yeah, both flights were Hell. The story goes like this: I was with my family. We were going to watch a friend or whoever get married in Colorado. I have had numerous experiences with flights before, and to me, this was just another day. Boy, was […]

I was flying alone from Orlando back home to Phoenix. I got my window seat that I paid extra for (or should I say my company paid extra for) and sat down. A few minutes later, some girl about 14 comes up and is the most polite thing ever. She asks to switch seats so […]

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 was once on a direct flight from New York to Johannesburg, South Africa (15.5 hours) and had the good fortune of sitting next to a hugely obese man who was sweating profusely. His butt barely fit into his seat, and when he sat down he had to lift his belly up and drape it over […]

I was heading home from San Francisco back to Phoenix. I checked in at Southwest Airlines and got, I think, seat B32. As I was sitting in the terminal by the gate, I heard a guy talking to a girl. His conversation centered around the fact that they both got “C” boarding passes and he […]

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 […]

Just got back from 2 weeks in Hawaii. Here’s just a little hell, given the vacation was paradise. The return Maui (OGG) to San Francisco (SFO) “bus” as I call it left relatively on time. This is an everyday route and you get a wide variety of passengers: partying tourists, islanders off to the mainland, […]
