"the romance of flying is long gone", perhaps but personally I love to fly anywhere commercially or otherwise
and everytime I do, I am thrilled to go to the airport despite all these things we have to face now.
Why was the Head of the State allowed to fly on an old piece junk? As if LOT ( Polish Airlines) didn't have a 767, 737 or EMB or something to put him on. And why did all the important people fly all together at once? They should have been broken up into smaller groups
