Certainly NOT my idea of "pre flight entertainment"! Just another reason that I fly as seldom as absolutely necessary now days. (As a passenger) Commercial aviation, and all the hassles associated with flying commercially, are more than I care to put up with.

Nice job in finding the article from the days when air travel was "special". The article could have been written last week.

Take care,
Mike

GREAT article! Sounds about right to me! Actually, a friend of mine was one of the very first airline stewards, on Piedmont Airlines back in the 50's, (DC-3's) and he had some tales to tell! It's really a shame that airline travel is so bad. I'm just thankful that I don't have to put up with it very often. (I used to have to fly at least twice a week.)

I'm especially concerned that the pilot's vision is blurred. I truly hope that is temporary.

At its worst, that sort of thing can be a career ender, and that would be tragic.
