Unlucky Passenger Or Not?

Sat Nov 23, 2002 3:52 pm

Hi everyone. I have flown maybe 10-15 times in my life and have experienced smoke in the cabin and some clear air turbulence. In this many flights is this normal or are the flights I choose unlucky?

Smoke in the cabin - unusual
Clear air turbulence - normal
Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.

Unless the aircraft made a very hasty landing, the "smoke" you saw was condensation. Nothing to worry about.
The day you stop learning is the day you should die.
