At Large The Miracle of Flight
posted by May 30 at 14:12 PMon
My flight to Washington, D.C., is delayed by two hours. So I’m going to miss my connection to Burlington, Vermont, and since there isn’t another flight to Burlington tonight, I’m going to have to spend the night in Washington, D.C. (perhaps in the airport), and fly to Burlington tomorrow.
But this has happened before and I’m pretty zen about it. Besides, flying is immoral and we frequent flyers deserve to suffer and anything the airlines can do to make the flying experience more miserable—pack us in filthy planes, charge to check bags, randomly cancel flights, strand us in ugly airports—is going to make us think twice about flying in the future and that, ultimately, will be good for the planet.
