I can't believe the Captain gave them his ok. I do not like natural turbulence when flying, so I would not have appreciated dancing in the aisle turbulence. I am glad I was not on this flight with my grandson who has a behavioral problem because he certainly would have bit someone on their a$$ !
I remember my first flight from LAX to SFO on a Super G Connie in 1956. Fantastic! My first job was in reservations for a summer job between college semesters. What a fun group of people. Thanks for the memories.
I miss my Continental! We had a R/T to Ontario CA which involved a change of planes in Houston. The CAL attendents were great, then UAL took over in Houston and their attendents were crude. They thought that a silly laugh, and rolling their eyes answered my questions. One could certainly see the difference in attitude and service.
Rather than fly to England and pay for Business Class, we are taking a trans-Atlantic cruise. Seven days of fun, food, entertainment and a wonderful bed to sleep upon.
I booked my wife and me, and another couple on a Continental flight from EWR to Athens and using our FF mileage to upgrad to Business Class about 6 months prior to the scheduled flight. Continental suspended their Non-Stop to Athens and confirmed the four us only to Rome, with connecting flights out of Rome.
We had a change of planes and airlines. My wife and I were on Alitalia and our friends on Olympus. All of us were now in coach! My wife's leg was in a brace and in a wheelchair. We recieved no assistance down the 2 ramps to the aircraft, (I was told that I would have to go back to the main ticket counter to make wheelchair assist arrangments and go through security again). Alitalia booked her a middle seat, whereas I got the window seat. She could not bend her leg, and the F/A could care less.
We finally got a young American student who offered to give up her aisle seat for my wife. No one, and I mean NO ONE offered any assistance. Customer Service? An oxymoron! No lo
