Predeparture and arrival music is usually prescribed by the airline but 7 years ago I was on an American Airlines flight where a flight attended connected their iPod and blasted Brick House by the Commodores when we touched down.
Now TSA agents are expressing themselves at New York JFK during the government shutdown, while they’re expecting not to be paid until the shutdown ends — though they’re getting some pay anyway, in hopes they’ll show up to work.
