A Chinese guy needed medical assitance on a 14h flight. My uncle assisted him so we got to see the 777 cockpit afterwards!

I feel bad for the man though…

LFlying from De Gaulle to Newark on Delta about four years ago, my family got bumped up to business class! It was unexpected, but as a tall family we definitely appreciated it.

I don’t fly much so the best thing was to get an exit row seat on Aer Lingus. Given I’m not tall I didn’t need it but it was great being able to stretch out if I wanted. I guess more so I valued being in charge of the emergency exit, got to love having some important responsibility 😇

Flying itself is the best thing that happened to me on my flights. Pilots are amazin’ !

No it was actually the fact that I met a KPOP idol on board a flight to Los Angeles from South Korea.

Just that moment when my first flight took off. That has to be the best moment of any flight I’ve ever been on…

But tbh my best thing is when we got out of the plane because you can land but you have to watch out for Harrison ford to make sure he doesn’t clip you on the taxiway with his power house cub.
