Terrible Flight Experiences (Vanity)

Posted on 09/16/2005 12:56:14 PM PDT by Maximus of Texas

On the flight home this morning, I was unfortunate enough to have a bleeder sit next to me. By bleeder, I mean he was invading my space because he was large and his body was spilling over into my seat. I've seen worse cases than what I had today but let's hear your experiences.

I was once on a sold-out 11 hour trans-Pacific flight---in coach and with a little girl traveling alone throwing up across the aisle from me and a middle-aged guy throwing up in the seat next to me.

Did you say anything to him?  As a veteran of public transportation, a loud, clear "You're going to need to move because we can't continue with you touching me." works well.

Lets hear all the woeful stories of those people that have had some other humans invade their space.

One reason I am obsessed with great financial success is so I can charter a nifty Gulfstream IV whenever I want to fly anywhere! Even though I'd charter it, I'd refer to it as 'my jet,' especially to gullible, attractive women I would meet. :-)

No, I just leaned a bit to my left and avoided contact. A former boss once had a real bad case of it, to the point that he couldn't avoid contact and when the flight ended his whole side was wet because of the sweat generated from the two bodies touching.

Well, besides lengthy flighyt delays, the crying baby for 3 hours, the chop so bad the flight attendents had to sit for a whole hour, the missed connections, the ticket counter agent lying to us (and getting caught), the crappy food, the 60 minute flight that takes 2 hours which means you miss the meeting, the bitchy stewardesses, the man next to me crying and drinking up a storm because he hates to fly, the snowed in airport, the lost luggage, the hour wait for baggage and the flight that got changed to 30 minutes earlier without any warning....

no complaints

Try having two kids from South America screaming in Spanish for three hours. When I asked them to please keep it down I got no comprende from the parents and the Airline people are never any help. The seat back kicking almost made me go grab the gun from the air Marshall.

Ya know,
I may have had some bad flights,
but as long as I'm not driving or riding on a bus, train or car...

Flyin' is great.

THAT is how much I hate ridin'.

When that happens, just grab the flight-phone and pretend to make a call to a loved-one, shouting loudly, "Hey, darlin'! They finally let me out of quarantine!!! I'm on my way home!"

I haven't had any really bad flying experiences, but one that really wore me down was an 11-hour non-stop flight during which I was seated in the middle seat between a 4-year old girl who wanted my constant attention (she had the window seat), and her mother (on the aisle) who kept her earphones in almost the entire trip, watched the movies, and pretty much ignored us both and let me babysit. The mom never once offered to switch seats so that she could attend to her daughter, and she never told her daughter to hush up and give me any peace. I guess I could have been rude, but the 4-year old didn't know any better, and I didn't really want to get into a "thing" with mom for 11 hours. The flight was full, and I was stuck.

Man, that sucks. I would have started drinking big time and then maybe the mom would have gotten worried about her daughter sitting next to a drunk.

I had a recent trip where a young child kept staring at me from across the aisle. It was one of those things where you could tell someone was looking at you, you know? Bugged the crap out of me. Forunately, it was only a 1.5 hour flight and I tried to sleep most of the way.

Was trying to impress pretty stewardess who sat down beside me. Things were going really well, until I got airsick and vomited. Not too cool being regarded as "hazardous waste" for rest of flight.

A couple of years ago

my mom and I flew to Seattle

on the way there we notice a mom/dad/2kids

come one...the mom sat in a seat

between 2 gentleman across from us and the dad

along with the 2 kids sat behind mom...

the whole flight mom is downing whiskey and chasing it with red bull

nothing wrong with that BUT both kids wanted questions

answered and dad decides headphones are going

to keep him sane so we had to listen to

mom flirting with 2 men 3 sheets to the wind

dad singing along with music via his headphones

kids saying

mom/dad why
mom/dad are we there
mom/dad why
mom/dad why

on and on and on
