I once with difficulty got a ticket on Turkish Airlines Jeddah to Adana. The plane, a B-727, was loaded with Hajis. I shared the three-seater space with a Turk family, a father, mother and a nine year-old daughter, the daughter on the lap of her mother. After take-off the mother wanted a cigarette but was having problems lighting it, so I offered to take the girl on my lap. She sat on my lap for the rest of the way. Girl loved it!

I don't think this was such a big deal. Ever seen a Pakistan bus or ferry? Like first class this is where the profit margin for a flight is generated.

Nobody is asking the important question: were the goats and chickens secure?
