ABSTRACT
The author presents suggestions on how to have fun riding on airplanes. He thinks that airlines do not care about customers anymore that they raise fares and think that they have control over people who travel. He shares that he would draw large red pots on his feet with a marker as he goes through the metal detector and bring sandwiches in his coat when airlines started charging for food. He also mentions that he would ask for extra airsickness bags when the airline charges him for a window or aisle seat.
