You all are generally much nicer than I am. On a flight to Las Vegas, BIG plane, 565 passengers, two squalling infants were bothering the entire group. We hadn't taken
off yet. The flight attendant went over to them and asked if the babies needed a bottle or a change. 560 people yelled, "YES!" in unison. And wouldn't you know it? They were on the flight back.
As to Honolulu, I got up and moved. I told the flight attendant that the mother was having a time with her crying baby, and she said, "What crying baby?" She couldn't hear it over the engines--they sit in the rear. When she was made aware of it, 3 hours later (I couldn't take it anymore! and I certainly could not force an 8 hour smile), the
attendants took turns walking the baby and that helped. By that time, I was sitting two SECTIONS ahead. As I recall, the L1011 has 4 big screen TVs and 4 sections?
Come and fly American from Dallas, and we will test your patience. Two weeks ago, my daughter got hung up in Chicago at O'Hare for 14 hours. Had to fly to Atlanta to get out of the way of a storm. And it took 2 days to get from Chicago to Dallas. Outrageous?
Not hardly. The next weekend she goes to LaGuardia on American with MTV. Same story. She had to sleep on the airport floor and wait for her cancelled flight to be rescheduled, and then she slept on the floor of the St. Louis airport, also a day late. Now that's ridiculous. You wouldn't be smiling then - you'd be ripe for a nervous breakdown.
