I was flying early Christmas Day morning from PHL-ORD-SEA on United. I overheard the father in the seat behind me say to his young son, “Look closely out the window, maybe you will see Santa Claus.” I rolled my eyes and cringed knowing what would soon follow as the flight was delayed and the sun […]

Returning home a recent flight from Singapore to Heathrow after a nice winter holiday, I had the complete privilege of being seated next to a very nice gay couple on their way back home to Paris.
