112-1211_imgWell, you asked for posts as we travel.

Arthur and I are going to Austin on the world’s worst airline.

Three guesses.

Weather in Austin grounded us in Houston so we could refuel. Were then told we would have to wait for an hour because of line up of planes taking off.

Now we are stuck on the tarmac for possibly hours and they will sell us food.

Sell us food, sell us food, sell us food.

Please post and e blast.

Call it trapped on Delta.


Someone please help us.

    Eleanor: Reminds me of the time I was stuck on a train after a derailment on the tracks ahead. Charlie Seabrook, who was also on board, was banging on the windows shouting, “Help me. Help me. I’m stuck on this train, and I can’t get off.”

  2. Funny. But you’ve obviously never flown Air Macedonia.

    No, no no. The worst airline in the world is Air Iberia. Flew it to Barcelona once (never again). The plane smelled and looked like a garbage dump , we were served unidentifiable food that even Bert wouldn’t eat and
    the bathrooms—well, let’s not go into that. For those of us old enough to remember the old Tom Little ad (with chickens in the aisles and women in black babushkas strapped into seats with rope) it was close to that.

    OK, if we’re competing, Ghana Airlines should be a contender. I got on the plane along with people carrying live chickens and various and sundry other farmyard animals and we careened through the sky like a Greyhound bus on a gravel mountain road. Of course, we did land safely, which I am assuming all these other airlines did as well, so it could have been worse.

  5. Safe landing. The only thing that truly matters.

  6. I’m in line with the comment from #6 “Dallas.” My feeling is, about the only thing worse than flying is not flying, suddenly.
