Worst flight? How about this:
I was flying non-rev on Vanguard from MCI
last June. I got an upgrade to business class for free (helps that I dated the CSA!), and was surprised to find that a beautiful, 23 year old model, who had been in LA
after flying from MDW
the previous week, and was on her way to ATL
for some kind of fashion show.
I thought I was the luckiest guy in the world, until about ten minutes into the flight, when I found out that this young woman was the most shallow creature I've ever met! Very beautiful, but, shall we say, the "stereotypical inner-city American black girl." Everything was about who she met in LA
and hanging out with all the thuga' rappers on the beach and her boyfriend that she knew was cheating on her but it would look bad if she dumped him because he's so cute and on the Illinois State basketball team and on and on and on... After twenty more minutes, I had a massive headache and pulled out my trusty Ibuprofen bottle and downed three tablets.
She didn't get the hint and continued to chatter away. The flight was completely full and so there was no where to move. I got into ATL
and got on the MARTA, went to my sister's place and played with my 18 month old neice for the whole weekend! Thank God I didn't see her on my return!
