Flight from Orlando to Minneapolis
- Number of Stops:
- 1 stop in Memphis, Tennessee
- Date of Flight:
- April 2010
- Seat Class:
6am flight out of Orlando with a stop in Memphis before heading on to Minneapolis. I was seated in row 21 or 23 in an aisle seat next to a father(middle seat) and his 3 year old son whose wife and daughter were seated directly in front of them. About half way through the fight the boy VOMITS repeatedly. I, as well as the gentleman that was seated in front of me, quickly exited our seats to avoid contamination as the clean-up process started. We both stood in the rear galley for a time while the child's parents with the help of the flight attendants cleaned up. As one might imagine the stench was nauseating so to combat the odor I was offered a small container of coffee to sniff, which was a welcome relief. The two of us were eventually seated in first class for the remainder of the flight. While there, one of the attendants from coach thankfully came to check in on us because when moving my things I noticed that my jacket which had been left in the seat for a time was wet (EWWW!). I was given a plastic bag as well which was accompanied by a good sense of humor. As my title states the flight attendants on this flight were great, not only did they keep their cool but they maintained their sense of humour throughout which help all involved.
One last note: I had a stop-over in TN where I discovered I was on this very same aircraft. I stopped at the desk to request that I be reseated ANYWHERE else and they were able to do so. I must say I had to look back and did seat that the vomit seat/row was occupied...thankfully not by me.
