The ultimate nightmare flight:
Being stuck for 7 hours on a Cathay Pacific flight to Hong Kong that never leaves the runway at San Francisco.
I've flown that particular flight.
A word to the downwardly challenged:
Cathay Pacific seats and the space between the seats are designed for Asian bodies. That means if you are taller than about 5'5" and larger than a size 8, you are in trouble. (Of course, that does remind me of that line in The Devil Wears Prada: "Size "6" is the new "14".)
I did learn this much: Trying to sleep standing up and leaning against the wall in back of the plane on a 13 hour flight exacerbates jet lag.
Meanwhile, Fr. Michael Sweeney was stuck in a middle seat, without cigarettes, for 13 hours. Fortunately, his friends had insisted that he take Valium before boarding.
Have I mentioned the glamour of the mendicant life lately? My condolences to all on board.
