Fly to Diet

4 hour international flight, with extra time on the runway. Left Chicago at just before 10:00 am. Arriving in Canada somewhere after 2:00 pm. Total in-flight refreshments: one small glass of coke, no can, and one glass of water. Wow. When did money become more important than comfort when traveling?

I miss Braniff of the 70's. Free cards, pilot's wings, a visit to the cockpit to bother the captain with silly questions and sneak a peek from the big windows. I've done a 12 hour Atlantic crossing in an Army C-141, sitting in jump seats on the side of the plane, staring at our pile of luggage strapped down in front of us, with the heater turned off. Even that was less claustrophobic and parsimonious than this flight.
