The New Adventure?
Despite the fact that I've travelled all over the world, I still suffer from mild anxiety when flying. Will this be the flight that crashes? Statistically, I know it's unlikely but that doesn't help. I comfort myself in the knowledge that at 41,000 feet we have five miles to recover the aircraft before hitting the ground. It's not much, but it's something.
I'm just hoping that I get the upgrade to first class. Even though I no longer hold the status I once held, I'm told that I'm currently Number One on the upgrade list.
That way at least I have a modicum
of comfort as we crash and burn.
But here's hoping that today isn't that day...
