Air Rage

I am old friends with a recently retired airline crew member of a flag carrier of an Asian country. He does not regret his decision to stay on the ground after 46 years of flying.

With the recent goings in air travel, I’m sure he is just thankful he accepted that prized gold watch given to retiring airline crew. (more…)
