In the last couple of years, I have done a significant amount of airplane travel—for work and pleasure—and if you’re like me, flying, in general, seems a whole lot more like work than pleasure.
Perhaps you read my previous blog rant about people and flying and the annoyances that go along with both. Usually, I'm not thrilled with what I see. That’s why I was thrilled to see a segment boldly taking on the subject this morning on NBC’s The Today Show. I’m assuming it was based on the column by flight attendant James Wysong that I found on MSNBC.com. Wysong gives many of the same tips in Airplane etiquette 101:A flight attendant offers a refresher course on common courtesy.
I found the column to be both tactful and very informative. His reference to “cracking knees” when reclining one’s seat really rang true for this 6’2” homo. Maybe you will find some truth and humor in this piece as well.
