Things I have learned today

Things I have learned today

July 26, 2006

1) Airlines no longer feed you. Even if you are travelling across the entire country and spending the whole day in the plane.

2) They also will not let you off the plane when there are layovers so that you can buy food.

3) It is possible to scare your fellow passengers by laughing too much, which seems to be a direct result of starvation.

4) Sometimes the very last person to get on an airplane, you know the annoying person that has to be paged several times before they finally show up and then walk down the aisle banging everyone in the head with their suitcase. Sometimes that person is you.

5) The Holiday Inn shuttle driver will NOT bring you to the Hyatt. Even if you complain about the heat and your hunger.

  5. ben says:

    I hear drivers can be bribed with tampons. Well, some of them can.

  6. Mir says:

    For those of you worried about Chris—never fear. She was miraculously revived last night by about 3 pounds of guacamole.

  7. InterstellarLass says:

    Damn airlines have gotten cheap! No food even for cross country flights?

    Glad ya’ll landed safely!

  8. CaliforniaGrammy says:

    Welcome to California!

  9. Kate says:

    Glad you arrived safely and were able to revive yourself with Guacomole. Guacomole makes everything better!

  10. Grace says:

    And was that guacamole accompanied with any cerveza? Margaritas? Or just chips?

  11. Rae says:

    The best part of flying used to be getting little packaged meals. Now we have to sit and peek over the seats to see what they’re having in first class. Feels like discrimination, although I KNOW they’re paying an arm and a leg. Still doesn’t feel right that some people are hungry and others are eating in style.

  12. zookeeper says:

    Hmm…I think you can purchase a meal for your flight home, when you check in at the airport. Might be worth the $10. Isn’t it scary they won’t feed you unless you ask ahead of time, but you can easily buy all the liquor you want at any time during the flight?! Hopy your trip is a blast!

  13. Kathleen Marie says:

    Oh, how I wish I could have warned you in advance but it sounds like your trip went very well.

  14. Musing says:

    >> Airlines no longer feed you.

    This is so true! I recently flew across country and back with my 16-yr-old daughter, was on four different planes, and not one of them feed us anything more than a tiny bag of nuts. Meh.

    And found your blog thru Woulda Coulda Shoulda.
