I'm not usually a complainer but a lot of things aren't working about flying these days. First of all, we were checked in ahead of time and only needed to check bags, which we were excited that there are separate lines for. So far so good. Unfortunately the line we were in suddenly lost the person servicing it, who went on break, saying they'd be right back, but didn't reappear, forcing us to cut into another line of people who had been waiting. OK, well whatever.
Then on the runway waiting to take off, the plane suddenly filled with jet fuel fumes, causing my face to go numb. I looked around to see if anyone else was noticing or maybe expiring silently. My husband and I had to stuff napkins into our nostrils to avoid asphyxiation. No one was complaining so maybe they're all on drugs and don't care about air quality, but I can tell you that it was awful!
The flight was fine, but what has happened to cabin service? All I can say is that the flight attendants all seemed to be suffering from PMS and only answered questions with a curt yes or no minus the smile. Woohoo, flying is fun.
We did like the Boeing 767, the seats were comfy and the personal screens were cool. The flight arrived on time and the only real hassle was at the car rental counter....but that's another story
