I'll just point out this little gem:

Cross didn't sustain any injuries in-flight. He only ended up with a bit of his neighbor's sausage down the back of his shirt.

Yeah, but they got free chocolate.

Alan Cross is former Program director at a few radio stations in and around Toronto.  Known for having a "freakishly large head" I think you'd have a hard time beating him in post 70's music trivia...

That's a different kind of flying altogether.

Happened to me on a small commuter flight. Everyone was drinking at the time. Suddenly all the contents of our drinks were on the ceiling briefly... then it rained booze. We all left the flight smelling like WC Fields and Lindsey Lohan.
 
2013-06-03 2:48:16 PM  
Yeeks - I try to fly on the big honking planes just because this usually *doesn't* happen when you're in a 747 (haven't flown the A380). But fer sure, submittler - United is... awful. OSL-EWR and back on a puny 757 is NOT FUN.

that it is coffee on the ceiling.

I prefer the direct 757 to any connections in LHR, FRA, or MUC!

It is a tradeoff. But I always end up connecting on the US end anyways, so I'll take BA into Boston with free drinks any day :)

I was going to give a link to his "Ongoing History of New Music" radio archives, but Corus (Canada's answer to Clear Channel) decided to remove them. I'm guessing certain bodies of water with swashbucklers present might have them though...

/fark Corus

Yeah, I caught that too. I was like "not the Ongoing History of New Music Alan Cross,right?". But it was him. Cool.

/about that 70's music trivia: Cross's station CFNY was the inspiration for "The Spirit of Radio" by Rush. Back then, that was their slogan. Cross didn't show up til later though.

Came here to say this - if you don't have a good reason to be out of your seat, be in it with the belt on even if the light is off.  People have died this way.

Calipataa: I gotta get me my Global Entry thingamadoodad


I usually connect EWR-DCA, and the Global Entry FAQ explicitly states that Pre-Check won't work when connecting domestic after an international arrival...but when my boarding pass was scanned at EWR, I was directed to the Pre-Check line anyway! It was glorious! Took me a total of EIGHT minutes to clear customs and get to my connecting flight's gate, and that includes a shuttle ride to an adjacent terminal!  Best $100 I've ever spent.

We switched from UA to BA last year, for one year, so I did 5-6 round trips via LHR to OSL. Not bad, and free booze, but while LHR Terminal 5 is nice to look at, it can either be a breeze or a nightmare, with no predictability or warning.  I'll stick with the devil I know!  And of course the one-year switch means I lost all status on UA -- starting from scratch is a PAIN!

/Really miss 1K...only had it once. It rocks.

Global Services is the way forward. They once held a plane on the ground for me at LHR because I was "running late because of traffic" which mean I was hungover and hadn't got out of bed.

Then switched to AA.....

I agree. Should have Google-fu'd it first. But now I did and I know. Surprised a plane that large can experience that type of turbulence. I'm learning a great deal today.

You can find Biscoffs in most supermarkets.

And they have SPREADABLE BISCOFF. It's like Nutella TIMES INFINITY.

Serving size: one jar.
