Do you do this? The minute I get my boarding pass I check which zone I am in. I hate being in zone 4 or 5 because that means you get on last and you know how hard it can be to find a place to stick your carry on. Of course, if I wanted to be in zone 1 then I should just book first class or business, right?
I have read lots of stories about having to sit next to or near a fellow passenger on a flight who just doesn’t know how to behave in the air. But my flight from Calgary to Newark last Friday was a first hand experience. I settled into my seat and while we were waiting to take off the “lady” behind me had a long loud telephone call with someone who I gathered from the call was her “loved one”. You know there are ways you can have a telephone call in a crowded place – and you can do it discreetly but this word was not in this woman’s vocabulary.
