6/10/04, bit further from Chicago

As ever, the golden rules of air passenger travel apply. Especially number 14: Meals should be served just before entering regions of turbulence.

Looking down on all these farms and townlets really brings it home how many Americans don’t live in the metropolises we all assume they do because nearly all of the films are set there. The rural settings we never believe are real because they always have a comic feel. The realest-looking film I think I have ever seen was actually a TV series called, The Dukes of Hazard.

United are like KLM and BA in that they go for the more mature steward(esse)s. It’s the opposite end to those airlines such as Singapore who pour the youngest things into those uniforms. But I am no where near Singapore, so there is no reason to think of their stewardesses.
