On December 27, 2015, Southwest Airlines flight 1665, a scheduled service flight from Sacramento to Denver, diverted to Oakland earlier in the afternoon. KCRA reports that it was due to a cabin pressurization issues.
The aircraft landed safely in Oakland and all the passengers were placed on a different airplane and continued their journey to Denver.
The passengers had no issues with the aircraft diverting. We all know that airplanes divert for many reasons. Fuel. Weather. A broken lav filled with too much shit.
No, these passengers were pissed they had to land in Oakland. I wasn’t on the flight but I wouldn’t be surprised if many were heard screaming, “NOOOOO! Anywhere but Oakland. What about Fresno? Isn’t that closer.”
I’ve been pissing people off lately. I guess that comes with the territory of telling stories and writing inappropriate jokes. Right? My goal is to make people laugh but I guess if you have a cop’s nightstick up your ass – you won’t see that. I had to take a moment from writing my book – and pouring another glass of wine – to express myself in this blog post.
Do you remember what happened on September 11, 2001? Think back – it’s been 13 years.
Our friends at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) have eased up on their restrictions of when airline passengers can use their personal electronic devices (PED) on the airplane. For everyone involved this is a dream come true. No more will the flight attendant have to bark at their passengers to turn off cell phone and put away iPads because once this new regulation goes into effect passengers will be able to use their PEDs from gate-to-gate.
When you hear your flight attendant say, “Ladies & Gentlemen, Welcome aboard…” it really means, “Hey – shut the fuck up and pay attention.”
This is true. Flight attendants work hard to protect their passengers and all people want to do is ignore them, think that they are only there to serve cokes and nuts, and lift their incredibly heavy bags. This is not the case. The flight attendant is actually there for your SAFETY – the rest is just nuts in a bag.
Not every passenger is this rude and impolite on an airplane. Some people actually say, “Thank you,” “Please,” and “I brought my own water – I’m alright, ” but the remaining millions of you – here are a few tips on how to act when you get through TSA and run up to the gate demanding, “Why is my flight late??”
The tears didn’t flow until I rounded the last turn in the museum and sat among many other museum patrons; watching Holocaust survivor videos and listening to their heart wrenching testimonies.
The term heartbreaking is an understatement.
I haven’t written for weeks now because I’ve been very busy turning 40. Turning 40 is a big deal and if you know me you should know that it’s a bigger deal for me than it would be for the average 40 year old.
I came across these great travel articles online and wanted to share them with my readers.
The drive across America has been an amazing and fantastic way to see the country. When I was sitting on my sofa in Orlando, I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to drive six to seven hours a day, go sightseeing each afternoon, and wake up to do it all again the next morning.
Driving cross country has always been on my bucket list so when I found out we were moving to California there was really no question that we would make the journey on four car tires instead of two plane engines.
Have you ever went online to purchase an airline ticket and specifically searched for an airline that was equipped with a television? Not just any television but a television at your seat, one that you wouldn’t have to share with anyone.
