Well, I have spent a good portion of my life very close to the airline industry. I have read my fair share of stories about passengers doing odd things, crazy things, but I have never been on a flight where the experience was anywhere near the stories I have read..until now.
I was on a short 90-minute flight recently on a Saturday afternoon. I was in the last row of First Class in a window seat. Toward the end of boarding a guy in his 20s or early 30s takes the aisle seat next to me. Everything seemed pretty normal.
He had a pre-departure beverage of white wine. The door closes, we taxi, then take off.
Shortly after departure, beverages are served and the guy continues drinking white wine. He is listening to his music and seemed pretty relaxed.
