Re: Aisle or window seat

Yeah I can get claustrophobic. That's why I always take window seats. It gives the illusion of being near an open window at least. But take offs, landings, being in the air, and the possibility of killing a fellow passenger by opening a bag of peanuts? Love that.

Re: Aisle or window seat

the possibility of killing a fellow passenger by opening a bag of peanuts

I bought a bag of almonds at the airport once I starting eating them while I was at the gate and then after I was seated on the plane I carried on snacking on them and then they announced that there was someone on the flight who had an extreme nut allergy and that they wouldn't be serving anything with peanuts. I was like fuck, what do I do?! I felt like a spotlight was on me I didn't know if I was supposed to tell the staff that I'd been eating almonds and basically just felt panicked for the whole flight that I was gonna kill someone

Re: Aisle or window seat

Who knew eating a bag of nuts was living on the edge.

Re: Aisle or window seat

That's my life in a nutshell (!) Cooking for kiddies with allergies is a white knuckle ride.

Re: Aisle or window seat

That must be so stressful!

Re: Aisle or window seat

It certainly is!

Re: Aisle or window seat

I learned about a new food allergy by talking to you. Well, not new but new to me.

Re: Aisle or window seat

Was that celery?

Re: Aisle or window seat

I love flying. 🤗

Re: Aisle or window seat

I hate travelling, the arrangements, printing shit at home, making sure everyone has everything, the trip to the airport, the sweaty anxiety of security, the waiting for 5 hours because…just because delays (but you have to arrive 2 hours before the flight), being herded into airless rooms, the stampede from the entitled young couples to get on the plane first because they have a child, trying to find your seat only to find some fat twat already in it, the scrum for the overhead lockers, sitting on the tarmac for another hour realising that the couple with the child are right behind you. Then repeat the process the other end with everyone rushing to be the first off the plane.

I'm also fearful of a fiery death!

Re: Aisle or window seat

Aaah. I usually travel alone. And these days everything gets sent ti phones including hoarding passes so as long as you have battery on your phone and nobody steals your phone, that part is sorted.

Been lucky so far. Only had one major delay in Madrid a few years ago due to a strike.

My headphones cancel out any screaming kids that might be on board but I've been lucky with that too. So far. Touch wood.

Re: Aisle or window seat

I understand all of this completely! I usually spend extra on fast track or to choose my seat because I can't stand getting caught up with everyone dithering and fucking around. I absolutely hate security and passport control and get major anxiety and automatically expect that I'll be detained for all the heroin and guns that I obviously overlooked in my suitcase. I haven't flown back to the UK since 2019 and am not planning to anytime soon cos it's all too much for me 😩

"Did you pack your own case?"
*thinks* "oh shit! Mind has gone blank, cannot remember packing case in fact cannot remember own name"

I don't blame you for not doing the flight, if it was bad before it's got to be worse since the whole Covid thing.

Re: Aisle or window seat

Exactly!

Yeah Covid and Brexit = no thank you!

Re: Aisle or window seat

Yeah Covid and Brexit = no thank you!

I was never so happy to be forced to stay put!

Has life in France changed much since Brexit?

Re: Aisle or window seat

Not so much as we retain our pre-Brexit rights but we have had to get residency permits which weren't needed before 🙄

Re: Aisle or window seat

I actually watched my husband tell his mother about something he got up to as a kid, possibly involving electricity. She looked horrified and made him promise to not tell her anything else!

Re: Aisle or window seat

Really?

That is so sweet and Englandy🧐👍

Re: Aisle or window seat

Apart from the scary snow shovelling man (no, not Kirk) being alone in a big house looked like fun, especially since he was clearly disliked by his family.

Re: Aisle or window seat

he was clearly disliked by his family.

THAT WAS MY EXACT POINT back then! Kevin can suck it!

Window so that I can hide away from the rest of the passengers as much as possible.

Re: Aisle or window seat


Other people make flying a miserable experience.

Aisle. I am tall, and these days slightly claustrophobic.
