So far, it’s been ad adventure. I sat on the plane with an old Hungarian engineer who invented the co-generation plant. Flight attendant spilled an entire coke on my other seat mate. – A very Russian dude who was PISSED! i thought he was going to cut her head off. She was shaking and admitted she was a klutz (WRONG THIS TO SAY!) anyway. He got a free flight out of it.
