We don't like flying. We think it's scary. So it was our special luck to fly to Burbank airport (Los Angeles) on Jet Blue tonight and watch flight #292, our return flight, circle LAX for 4 hours before landing safely (thank God!). Since Jet Blue has television sets in every seat, everyone was watching the live coverage, talking amongst themselves, trying not to be scared shitless and just glad it wasn't us.
Here's a pic of what we saw on the plane as well as our lovely cabin. Oh, and by the way, Jet Blue - despite their front wheel issues - is an absolutely lovely airline and the attendants and captain were first rate. So were the passengers. When Flight #292 landed safely, everyone cheered, and when we landed, everyone cheered.
