Our flight was about 8 hours long. The good thing was that we left in the evening, they served us dinner on the plane, we downed a couple of Benedryl, and tried to get a decent night’s sleep. The bad thing was that some people on the plane think that the middle of the night is a good time to chat loudly about their next business deal, golf scores, and football stats. I kept popping up over the back of my seat like a groggy meerkat giving them the old stink eye and eventually they piped down.
Lots of hacking and coughing on the plane… and it was freezing. Note to self: long pants + long sleeved shirt + two airline blankets do not = cozy and warm! Next time dress warmer!!
