I am on a plane. But it is not a good plane. In fact, I would say it is a very bad plane. But that is ok. Because I have a window seat. Other people do not have a window seat. So for them it is not ok.January 5, 2023 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #2154338CTLAWYERParticipant
Good luck to you.
I am sorry you fly on bad planes.
That said I only book/fly in aisle seats, not interested in the curved wall of the window seat.
I like to get up at will and stretch my legs.
When Mrs. CTL was still alive we always booked aisle seats across from each other.
The only time I fly seated in a window seat is when it is also an aisle seat in private planes.January 5, 2023 6:35 pm at 6:35 pm #2154339DontMindMeParticipant
I think it’s time YWN put it place age restrictions on commenters. Let’s start with ages 8+ and go from there.January 5, 2023 6:37 pm at 6:37 pm #2154344ujmParticipant

I once (OK a few times) had a better seat. It was a window seat. The front window. And I had the fun of flying it.January 5, 2023 7:29 pm at 7:29 pm #2154398

I am not going to Maine. And I am not going to Eretz Yisrael either. But I will be going there on Monday. And aisle seats are only OK if the person by the window has good bladder control.January 6, 2023 8:14 am at 8:14 am #2154470
@dontmindme, I have an even better idea. YWN should start putting spelling/grammar restrictions on posters. If you can’t post coherently, then don’t post.
(I am not saying that your post was incoherent. I am saying I just think it would be a better idea in general. If an 8 year old can post coherently, there’s no reason for us not to let him to. There’s plenty reason for his parents not to let him to, but not us.)January 6, 2023 8:17 am at 8:17 am #2154489GadolhadorahParticipant

I’m beginning to notice that it’s hard to construct anything about any personality on the internet based on what they write. (Such as troll/not, smart/not, age, etc.)
If anything, trying too hard kind of messes with you. Too many possibilities. And often too hard to guess tone in plain writing.January 8, 2023 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm #2154905
Are you kidding?!? Planes fly in the clouds!!! That’s where all the internet stuff is… Cloud basedJanuary 9, 2023 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #2155073zen3344Participant
Zaphod, that’s because you’re not on an airplane. You’re on a Vogon ship. Seek out the Dentrassi. They may be able to provide a kosher meal while you’re listening to Vogon poetry.January 9, 2023 3:47 pm at 3:47 pm #2155070
Wait, are you telling me that if I want to access my internet, I just have to go into the clouds? The simple ways to access things are just insane.January 9, 2023 7:17 pm at 7:17 pm #2155135

Wow, this thread is still alive….
Zaphod, I’m sorry I mistyped a letter.
And I’m sorry if I hurt your feelings. But while people obviously don’t come into the CR to make constructive use of their time, they also don’t want to completely waste their time. And posting nonsensical topics meaning and saying nothing does waste the time of those who click on it.January 12, 2023 2:07 pm at 2:07 pm #2155911
@ dontmindme again, there was nothing wrong with your post. Please reread my previous post on this matter for further clarification as to my intent.
And if you really think that the things I am writing are any less intelligent than other threads and that my threads are a waste of time then:
A) you haven’t been reading other threads very carefully.
B) you’ve never made actual use of your time, so you don’t realize that if you’re wasting time then you’re wasting time, and
C) you don’t have to open my threads.January 13, 2023 2:00 pm at 2:00 pm #2156227#schwarbombsParticipant

Next time you fly, you just might consider taking a few packets of peanuts with you. Don’t wait until the flight attendants bring them around. You never know when you may need that extra protein. Oh, and DON’T PANIC! Air travel is mostly harmless.January 19, 2023 4:48 pm at 4:48 pm #2157875
It used to be mostly harmless. But ever since this metal dude starting following me everywhere, it’s become more and more risky. I have to turn him off to make sure he doesn’t talk to the plane and make it commit suicide. You laugh, but it wouldn’t be the first time. It’s honestly made really nervous on past flights. That’s when I first came up with pan galactic gargle blasters. A couple of those, and you’ll never panic again.
To all those who are wondering where I am, I’m currently boating on Damogran on my way to France. Can’t tell you what’s gonna go down there yet, but stay tuned. I have a major announcement.

Today I was on a plane again. My opinion has not changed. Planes are still stupid. Stupid planes that get delayed on the tarmac and stick me between two incredibly obese mammals. Good Shabbos.July 28, 2023 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #2211802Avram in MDParticipant
“Stupid planes that get delayed on the tarmac and stick me between two incredibly obese mammals”
Yeah! Next time you should just walk, or take a horse-drawn cart on bumpy or muddy rutted wagon roads with bandits in the woods 😀July 29, 2023 11:45 pm at 11:45 pm #2211922
It probably would have taken quicker. And smelled better.July 30, 2023 7:25 pm at 7:25 pm #2212041
So I guess this time you didn’t have a window seat, cause then you wouldn’t have been between two people.
Go into a shul and put yourself between two learned talmidei chachomim and learn from their ways.July 31, 2023 10:23 am at 10:23 am #2212122pekakParticipant
If you don’t want to be stuck between 2 incredibly obese mammals you can pay to choose your seat. If you insist on flying an airline that doesn’t allow seat selection (even for a price) it’s your own fault.July 31, 2023 11:05 pm at 11:05 pm #2212489
I have tried that. Unfortunately they always end up learning from me instead.
That sounds like something an incredibly obese mammal would say.August 1, 2023 12:10 am at 12:10 am #2212500Sam KleinParticipant
Why don’t you the next time you need to travel
somewhere far rather it’s for business or pleasure. Why don’t you instead find a different way of travel if it means driving yourself on a long trip through the country or maybe take the train instead and I think when your trip is over you’ll have a complete new perspective and real appreciation for planes and flying even with bad customer service provided.
Looking forward to all of us flying soon on the YWN coffee room private plane to Yerushalyim with Mashiach and the rebuilding of the Bais Hamikdosh bkarov.August 1, 2023 10:27 am at 10:27 am #2212639

I’m back on a plane. It is still stupid. But this time I got a window seat. So it is marginally less stupid.
I hope you all are following along and taking notes on the relative stupidity of planes, and how those numbers can change based on various situations. There will be a quiz. Consequences for failure will be severe.August 1, 2023 5:11 pm at 5:11 pm #2212744n0mesorahParticipant
Even the failure of stupid planes can have severe consequences.August 1, 2023 9:00 pm at 9:00 pm #2212790pekakParticipant
“But this time I got a window seat. So it is marginally less stupid.”
So now you can be stuck between one or 2 “incredibly obese mammals” and a window and we’ll read about your childish complaining.
