One of the things on my bucket list was to go first class on an airplane.
Recently I had the opportunity to take that trip.
I was on my way home from visiting my daughter. I bought the ticket, never realizing how nice it was going to be. In the past, I had always flown economy and it was overcrowded and had the worst air quality. I had my mom with me on one of the trips and she was always cold. She started out cold and they were able to give her a blanket. Then she got much warmer. As the heating continued to rise in temperature, my mom became faint. She thought she was going to be sick and all I could think to do was to turn the air vent off. I tried to turn the air vent off, but that was impossible. I called the flight attendant and they tried to adjust the air vent, but he was not able to fix it either. He tried to knob that would change the heating to air conditioning, and we had satisfaction. Unfortunately, they couldn’t adjust the air conditioning, either. The air blowing on her was now full AC, and she went back to using the blanket. Luckily, it was only a two hour flight, and she had three blankets to keep her warm. She brought the blankets home with her so she would always have a reminder of that plane ride. Too much AC and too much heating, was not what we paid for. I had to admit that it was still better than a twelve hour car ride..
