I’ve boarded the plane. I’ve had to turn right, which I hate doing, and I head towards the back of the aircraft gleefully looking for my non-upgraded consolation; an emergency exit seat. I look at the row numbers as I repeat mine in my head over and over…
Row 49, row 49, row 49
Ah, here it is. Great.
Im looking at the seat configuration as i’m in seat K which I now see is the window seat. Cool.
I look down and realise that most of the legroom is taken up by the door, so I only have enough legroom for my left leg.
I’m basically sitting side saddle.
Add to this the fact that I have two Americans sat behind me with that valley girl Britney Spears type of accent that goes up at the end of every (dumb) sentence, and my personal hell is complete.
Oh well, at least it’s only for nearly 8 hours.
Since finishing this blog entry, it’s become clear that the people next to me aren’t coming…so now I have 3 seats to myself.
Time to spread out and sleep.
