Man, this is the kind of straight talk from a politician I could really get used to.
and back to day again…
The trip across the wide Pacific was 24 hours door-to-door. The Seoul/Narita/Chicago/DC iteniary was as miserable as it sounds.
United Airlines is a big step down from my preferred Korean Airlines is every aspect imaginable. The equipment (747s without seatback entertainment systems), food, service, and flight attendent attractiveness were all disappointments on this trip. Worse, United is extremely chintzy with leg room in coach. When I sat down my knees were already bumping the seatback in front of me. When the SOB in front of me reclined his seat, well, it was like being captured in a spider’s web (there was a big size guy in the middle seat next to me spilling over into my space exacerbating my claustrophobic conditions). It was pretty much a tortuous journey but it is over and I can only look forward to the return trip next week with dismay.
