Driving isn’t the hassle it used to be. As a matter of fact, aside that I can’t drive 500 miles an hour, I actually prefer to road trip now.
Airplane travel just isn’t as fun as it used to be. It’s not terrible because we fly Southwest Airlines almost exclusively. And they are mostly leisure travelers that aren’t in The Big Rush.
But since Southwest doesn’t fly to Barbados yet, we will be flying American Airlines from Miami. No doubt this flight will be loaded with tourists also. No doubt there will be some will be over-imbibed passengers.
And the foreigners.
Not surprisingly, most of the air travel annoyances are not under the control of the airlines. They are TSA annoyances.
Thanks to the Oatmeal, over the next few hours, while we are winging our way over vast expanses of water on Oceanic-American, these are the little things that will get our vacation off to a flying start.
