well i made it back...alive. the flight to london from sf was about as good as it gets, the flight to dublin from heathrow on brittish midlands airbus was BUMPY, the plane was sliding all over the sky, it was awefull...heathrow airport really sucks and i couldnt find my way to check in to come back to sfo, i made my flight with 3 minutes remaining! virgin air is very very nice, i got all the drinks i wanted and i even got to watch the muppet show on the little tv! i ordered the vegan meal, and it was pretty greasy but it looked better than what everyone else was eating. the only thing that was different too was that i must have had about 100 drinks and it didnt really get me drunk. i caught a buzz but it wore off in like 2 minutes. also, the leg room really sucked for me, being 6'0 tall and cramped in a little space made me mad. also, i wish you could smoke on long flights, i think that rule sucks. i got so irritated after 8 hours i almost slashed my wrists..at least they could offer nicorettes! oh and it was really hot too, i think the a/c was broken..other than that it was great and i had the best time in the uk and i wish i missed my flight and never had to come back..what happens if you miss a flight? do they let you come back?
