TRAVELING ON AN EMPTY PLANE

TRAVELING ON AN EMPTY PLANE Have you ever had this wonderful experience of paying for an economy ticket on a long flight (Madrid-Miami for instance) and getting a plane half empty allowing you to have whole rows to yourself ? Guys, this never happened to me before, especially on long flights which are usually packed full and I dread them very much.

But yesterday was our lucky day indeed.
At the counter of Iberia, the air attendant kindly placed us at the back of the plane where we were about 10 on 5 whole rows of the plane.
We got 12 seats for the 5 of us !!! We managed to spend almost all the flight lying on our backs with 2 or 3 cushions each, enough covers for the girls to make tents over the seats and it was all in all a wonderful flight !

We arrived fresh at Miami airport or nearly fresh and that was a good thing because the queue at customer lasted about 3 hours.
There were only 2 officers to clear I think 2 flights and it just took forever.
Many people complain and ask to speak to the manager.
A guy in a policeman suit with many more badges than the others came and announced in a very proud way :

This is no ordinary queue, this is the queue get into the United States of America.
We deal with the applicants with the number of staff we have and they each take their time for everyone of you.
If it requires of you a little patience, well that’s the queue for the USA.

I hesitated at applauding loudly but made myself little at that point because that was the beginning of the queue and I still had some patience.

Ok, complaining about US customs, done.

Back to the flight, we had planned to take turns to walk and let each of us rest their legs and at final, it was so much better than expected ! We are so grateful.
So now it’s a last flight for us this morning and we’ll be in Costa Rica !!!
