The only thing I like about air travel is it gives me time to read. Jane Lindskold
When the plane is delayed, it’s not the fault of the girl at the desk. I’m resigned to the fact that everything is out of my control and that air travel nowadays is barbaric. Tom Conti
Lovers of air travel find it exhilarating to hang poised between the illusion of immortality and the fact of death. Alexander Chase
The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. Saint Augustine
Wherever you go, go with all your heart. Confucius
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. Marcel Proust
A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. Lao Tzu
Never go on trips with anyone you do not love. Ernest Hemingway
All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware. Martin Buber
What does it mean to pre-board? Do you get on before you get on? George Carlin
Favorite safety messages, from back before they started playing recordings:
“If you’re traveling with a child, adjust your own oxygen mask first. If you’re traveling with more than one child, decide right now which one you love the most.”
“… and you unbuckle the seat belt the same way as every other seatbelt you’ve ever used.”
“Our pilot today is Captain Crunch.”
“In the unlikely event of a water landing, you’ll know you’re not in Kansas any more.”
You can hardly blame them. It must get awfully boring after the 1000th repetition of the same line of patter, and at least these guys were entertaining.
This is really funny and a very accurate description of the average traveler’s memories of air travel.
As we are repeating quotes, here’s one I wish actually proved true:
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness. -Mark Twain, author and humorist (1835-1910)
Unfortunately, for some, travel experiences only verify those narrow mind sets which were embedded in their early years.
“I want an adventure, book me on Space X” .. “ah, you seek a higher plane”.
Southwest Airlines, back when it was fun to fly.
I wanted Memphis. I got Confucius.
Be not that worried about your lost luggage. They are only material things. Rejoice that you arrived safely.
