A pilot left the cockpit to use the bathroom. A little old lady screamed, “Who’s flying the plane”??? Of course the copilot was in control. The pilot immediately went back and brought out a string and handed it to the woman. He said, “Whatever you do, don’t let go of this string. You’re now flying the plane”!
When we got to the airport, we were charged $30 to check one bag. Ok, I don’t like it but I realize in today’s world, most airlines charge to check luggage. When we boarded the plane, I was astonished. The seats were hard, didn’t recline and there was very little leg room. It was very uncomfortable.
I expected the normal free snacks, soda or coffee. Not this airline. You have to pay for everything! If you want to get a seat with padding and enough legroom to avoid the scoliosis the rest of us suffered, you pay more. No in-flight entertainment at all on a four hour flight. Crazy.
On the flight back, I didn’t select our seats until about two hours prior to the flight. At that point, even the regular seats came at a price. I ended up paying $27 for each seat! Insane! All tolled, we had to spend an additional $109 before we even boarded! They also suckered some people into paying to put anything into the overhead bins. We did it anyway, along with most passengers and were not charged.
