I always get stuck next to the guy who thinks deodorant is an evil product.

Try being stuck on an 11 hour flight next to a guy who smells like a mixture of BO, garlic, and some other pungent odor.

With ya! At least a shorter flight, NYC to CMH, stinky guy ordered a beer after I did, he didn't know he could, and I had to listen to how the flight attendant didn't bring his change back yet...Reassuring a greasy, odorous person that all would be well, during the flight, I think I needed 17 beers.

25 years ago, redeye, fully loaded 757 LA-Boston. I was in the middle seat, a fat guy was on the aisle, a woman with a 15 month old lap baby had the window seat. The baby was having the flight from hell...and he invited me to join the party...by puking on me somewhere over Colorado. I never thought a baby could produce so much vomit (until I had a kid of my own.) The flight attendants were sweethearts (did I mention this was 1988?) and gave me a set of scrubs they carried for just such an occasion. Then I got to sit in business class for the rest of the trip and drink free beer.

I always tend to have pretty good trips. Fly enough where upgrades are common and never seem to have any problems.

Never really understand all the pearl clutching about flying.

None more deserving.

I enjoyed my time in business class with free drinks.

Sounds like the baby was pretty darned smart. Probably heard you talking.

Due to a long story, family was split up on the second leg of a Columbus to Orlando flight. I had the aisle seat in the last row. At the very last possible moment, a mom and her 4 year old and 18 month old board and of course they have the last two seats left on the whole flight, next to me. She hadn't bought a ticket for the little one. Both boys. Then we sit on the taxiway for 3 hours waiting for T-storms to pass over north Florida (we were at Raleigh-Durham). Kids fussed the whole time, with the little one squirming the whole time. Then we took off, both kids start crying because of the pressure change. While we sat the flight attendant offered the mom a drink, but not me! Was never so glad to get off a flight.

Then, on the return trip, sat behind a trophy wife who was drunk as a skunk, and decided to call the ex on the air phone. Got into a complete scene yelling at the ex over care of the ex's kids. Not hers. Continued to make a complete mule of herself the whole flight. She was physically beautiful, but had less than zero class. Husband was quiet but in deep-freeze toward her, which she didn't pick up on. Not hard to see she'd be kicked to the curb soon. This was in '92.

And to think, the FAA is actually thinking of allowing cell phone use at altitude. I can see lots of calls from the flight deck for the cops to meet planes at the gate if that ever happens.

Well of course you get upgrades, I would expect nothing less from your self righteous, spell checking, know it all, buttocks. Earning enough frequent flyer miles come with NO headaches. Know it all that will "school" us on this forum, barf

You'll know it's Glitter when I sing Copacabana, with my pocket knife, swinging a golf club, all while I'm on my cell phone. Yeehaw! Scan my daughter, I'm fine ociffer.

Yep. This woman was so loud, half the plane wondered what was going on.

Forgot to mention, on the 3 hour wait, some dbag demanded the crew make sure there was enough fuel. Ok, this was a 737 making a 500 mile flight, it's not gonna run outta gas. But after his second tirade, out comes a BP avgas tanker. He was sitting right over the wing, so he saw the tanker pull under the wing. What he didn't see, but I did, back in the back, was that the tanker driver pulled out the hose, then laid it on the ground under the wing. After a 10 minute wait, during which he just lounged against the side of the tanker, he put everything away and took off. Our special passenger felt so much better though. Gave me something to smile about while the kids were trying to hack me off.

Wished I could have flown in the '50s when people knew how to behave.
