We're loath to fly and it shows

It's traveling season and I'm reminded of the questions that plague me when I'm boarding a plane. For example...


Did the pilots do adequate pre-flight prep?

Was I smart to get a no-frills flight?

Did I pick the right airport to leave from? Opinions certainly seems divided on LAX

Problem is, the skies are just so crowded these days. You never know what you'll see out there.

On some flights there's apparently no room for refrigerators

Maybe I'll try one route suggested by Google
