At the boarding gate January 22, 2011 Announcement at departure gate in Hong Kong: We are now boarding passengers from rows 50 to 70. Hordes of people jump up to get in line. Me to the girls: Oh, that’s not us yet. Let’s sit back down and wait. Big mistake! Next announcement some time later: We are now boarding the rest of the passengers. We get in line. There’s only like 30 people behind us. We get on board and practically the whole plane had been filled and I don’t mean just the overhead compartments!!

I hope everything else went smoothly and was sleep- (And perhaps cocktail?!) filled! 🙂 Clairity January 24, 2011 at 6:30 am @galit Sleep yes, like a log 😆 . Lady Estrogen January 24, 2011 at 9:42 am That’s a HUGE PP of mine. Only once did I ever witness a militant stewardess that turned away people that were not in the alloted call-out seats – she was an awesome bitch about it and I loved her. adventuresinestrogen.blogspot.com Katherine January 24, 2011 at 11:35 pm When leaving Vegas at Pubcon I had the same problem. I had a seat but the overheads were full. They had to check my bag… after I had to lug it all through the airport!
