We Hardly Knew Ye

One great airline, Independence Air, is now shutting down for good on Thursday. For those of who you didn't fly it, you would miss it too. All the seats were a bright blue leather, comfortable, and fares were quite cheap (sometimes as low as 39 dollars one way).

My last flight included a flight attendant who opened with the following introduction speech:

"Hi, my name is Fritz and I along with Jen and Alex will be your flight attendants for this flight. But I have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that you'll have to put up with us for about an hour. The good news is that I just saved a bundle on my car insurance by switching to Geico.

"... There is no smoking on this plane. Disabling the smoke detector in the bathroom is a federal offense. However, if you exit the plane anywhere between here and our destination, please feel free to smoke as much as you like.

"...If you're travelling with a child, be sure to adjust your oxygen mask first, in the event of an emergency. If you're travelling with two children, pick a favorite."

To Fritz and the rest of the I-Air crew, you'll be missed!
