Book last read on a flight? I only read magazines or do work – books put me asleep


I can’t fly without my… i-pod

On my last flight…One woman complained and requested her seat be moved because the person sitting next to her was so fat that the seat belt barely fit. He was literally oozing out of the seat – very Jabba the Hut – like. She was Australian, moved her seat to the row in front of mine and then asked if she could come back to my row and drink with me and my associate since she didn’t like to drink alone. I think she drank a bottle of wine and then slept for 9 hours. She was a trip!!!

This passenger I sat next to…had horrible breath – I hate when that happens. You try to position the air vent in a way to keep the stink out of your airspace. It’s a very complicated process but can be mastered with a lot of practice. Unfortunately this is a very common experience and sometimes the plane doesn’t have the movable air vent so you have to master a special technique of breathing and the positioning of you head to try and avoid the stench.

I had this one flight…where the plane actually departed on time and landed early. It was miraculous – no airport delays, no flight delays and early arrival. I didn’t think it was possible

If I could be anywhere in the world, I’d … either be Hawaii for pure tropical paradise or Prague for the most incredible architecture

When it comes to traveling, I wish…I could always fly private/charter

Why are/do flight attendants…still show people how to buckle a seat belt?

Next flight? NYC to LA in early feb
