We live in a very different travel world than the one I grew up in. I never thought I’d get to the place to where I said, “kids today!” And that’s as much about the people working in and setting policy for the airport, and the people working on the planes, as it is for the passengers… who aren’t all rainbows and unicorns themselves.
Pay attention, it’s a strange strange world we live in. Here’s what I saw this weekend.
The United Club is apparently where flight attendants go to campaign in union elections. We live in strange political times.
Complimentary domestic upgrades do still exist.
But maybe they shouldn’t. These were all from the same flight:
The airport is under terrorist attack!! What else to conclude? We know that water is dangerous at least in packages over 3 ounces and total amounts greater than 100ml. And this dangerous weapon is being stockpiled at the TSA checkpoint! (Then again perhaps the TSA doesn’t even think the water they’re stealing is dangerous, since they just pile it up in bins rather than calling for hazmat assistance.)
