On a recent plane trip I read the in-flight magazine and found the letters column especially interesting. One reader wrote that he loved the airline, saying it â€śhas all the qualities I look for in my future bride: always on time, greets me with a smile, welcomes me home and takes care of me during our time together. OK, so Iâ€™m a hopeless romantic who thinks I will meet my future wife on my next flight.â€ť Others wrote that they found their flights â€ścomfortingâ€ť and â€śenjoyable.â€ť
I shared the letters with a friend who was traveling with me, and we agreed that such enthusiasm wasnâ€™t typical of our experience of air travel. Always on time? You must be kidding.
