Blogging A-Z April Challenge - Airports and Airplanes
I was going through reading my usual blogs this morning and read a blog post by Coffee Lady at my morning cup of coffee. She was talking about starting the A-Z Blogging Challenge here. It sounds like something fun to do. I will probably do this one plus my regular postings but I may not get two in every day. We'll see.
Today I am writing about the letter A for airplanes and airports.
We fly out on Saturday to head to Florida for Spring Break. My husband, son, my son's friend and myself. We got on the plane and the first thing that the boys pointed out was how old the flight attendants were. I looked around and realized they were right, there were four flight attendants and not one of them was under 50. One of them was quite definitely much older than that. As I thought about it, I remembered that the last few times I have flown most if the flight attendants were a little older.
I wondered if the retirement for the attendants has gotten so poor that the women can't afford to retire. My husband said they were all grouchy. I did notice that they did not have a very friendly approach. I know the airlines have made lots of cuts over the last several years. Maybe they aren't hiring any younger people and the crews are made up of all older people. I wouldn't want to be flying all over the country at my age.
Just something I noticed.
Also I have a question, why do they put the little curtain between the first class and the coach sections. Are they afraid that if they see each other that people won't like it? I mean, really, I know they get more in first class, they pay good money for it. I don't expect to get those little perks. Do the people in first class not want to see those back in coach, because they might be offended by them. I don't know. I just think it's silly. Sure, someday I would like to travel in first class, just to sit in those big, roomy seats. I will have seen everyone walk through by me so I don't think I need to be shut off by a curtain later.
Okay there is my rant for the day!
