    Am I weird?

    Is it weird that I love flying on a plane and everything that goes along with it? Especially on the long-haul flights; the longer the flight, the better. I love those trans-Pacific flights that last for a dozen hours, even when flying economy class. Maybe it's because my skinny bum can fit into the 17 inch seat with room to spare, so I never had a problem with the size of the seat. Sit back, curl up with a good book, followed with a nap, and I'm good to go. Some can't stand air travel, but I freakin' love it.

    I even love the airline food. All those little packets of random stuff to open just to see what the hell is inside them, and the food is actually good on most of the airlines I've traveled with. Some people find airline food to taste like something you pulled out of a trash can, but I find it absolutely delicious.

    Hell, I even like the airport itself. Since I give myself plenty of time for flights (I usually arrive at the actual gate about two hours before the flight departs), I can leisurely go through security and baggage check with a smile on my face. Is it weird that I actually find LAX entertaining and *gasp* fun? Seeing all the airline logos, destinations list, and people actually makes me smile. And while waiting at the gate, I just enjoy watching all the planes just taxi to and from the runways, and see the planes taking off and landing in an endless cycle.


    I'll be flying again (to Saigon) in two weeks, and I can't wait. For some people, and airport and plane are something they want to get over with as quickly as humanly possible, but I like to sit back, relax, and enjoy the experience. I'm going with my older brother, and we're using a trick we've been using every time we travel by air: I book the window seat while he books the aisle seat, leaving the middle seat empty. Now, most flights are never completely full, and no one in their right mind would book a middle seat between two strangers if there's another seat available, so the two of us usually end up with the 3 seats to ourselves. :cloud9:

    You're weird because you think you're weird about such a random thing.:tongue:

    And that post count thingy.

    You are completely nuts for thinking LAX is entertaining and fun (especially security/baggage claim)! :hang:

    At first I was going for "slightly weird", but then that nail pic came to mind, so it ended up at "weird". :)

    I don't think you're weird. I love flying and airports as well. The long haul flights aren't nearly as much fun though. At some point you just gotta get up and move around.

    I don't think you're weird, but then I just might be weird as well.

    I'll have to disagree. I've spent most vacations since i was about 5 'till 16 on planes flying either trans-Atlantic or across Asia to Singapore/Australia. I can honestly say I hate flying.

    I have a liking to the airline food, as well. There's something about that cheap taste that I enjoy.

    As for the rest, I can't say that I have much in common.

    Flying is fine.

    Airports are just far too busy. And I loathe security.

    I enjoy flying too but super long flights get boring.

    It really depends who you are with too.

    I'm going to say yes, just because I can.

    -edit-

    I guess I'm almost like you. I've only flown once though, and I enjoyed it.

    I agree with this :p

    Honestly, I hate even short flights on a plane, because I get like a massive headache within the first half hour. Then, I try to sleep it off, and after the nap I have an even larger headache.

    If I sleep through the entire flight, my ears become unpoppable and everything sounds funny for a week.

    Weird.

    But I think everyone's weird. Which kind of makes everyone normal. Oh dear... :banghead:

    Airline food only tastes funny because of the dry air, you can't smell as well so your sense of taste goes down too. I think salt is the last one to go.

    I don't mind flying, I do mind having to go back and wait 20 minutes to check my juggling clubs with an explanation of "just because" while my friend walks right on through with his juggling clubs.

    Other than the security I don't mind it, though I do put a clipboard in between the seats to keep people out of my chair.

    You got to be kidding. I can explicitly taste the overuse of turmeric and other condiments that have absolutely no place in the dishes they happen to serve.

    My flights on 5 different companies tell me the food is horrible, period.
