We flew one like that back from Serbia once with the national Serbian basketball team. Keep in mind that the Serbs are, on average, the tallest people in Europe. The cabin crew had to move everyone around, because the basketball guys could not fit under the curve of the cabin in the window seats.It was quite comical watching them trying to fit all these huge people into a sardine can.

Ha!  That must have been fun.  it would have worked for me, because I prefer a window seat anyway.  When I get the chance to fly on a 1x2 type row, I do everything I can to be on the left in a single seat.  The storage under the seat is smaller, but there's no overhead bin so the seat seems roomier.

1. I don't mind it.

2. Vegas, 2012

3. 17. My first flight was non-stop from Detroit to Frankfurt. My parents were RV enthusiasts, so half the fun was the trip there. (Supposedly.)

Hate it, but it's often the only practical way of getting where we need to go

October 2013 to Seattle for my dad's memorial service :(

I was an infant the first time I flew.

1.  Do you like to fly?  Not really, but I don't hate it.  I just don't like how they cram you in so much.

2. Last place/time you flew?  Last August to Minnesota

3. How old were you the first time you flew?  3 weeks--to Alaska for the first of two times in my life that I lved here.

  This time because the price difference was so little and it gave us options in changing our tickets we bumped up to Sky Priority.  Getting a bit spoiled we will do this in the future unless there is a huge price differnce.

1.  I don't have any issues with flying, especially in first class, lol.  I don't always think it's the best way to travel to a destination though.

2.  I think...home from Frankfurt, Germany a little less than 2 years ago.  There might have been a short flight in there but I'm drawing a blank at the moment on any details.

3.  I was 7 I think.

The smallest plane I ever flew in was only a 4 seater, that was fun!

1.  Do you like to fly? Not since 9/11 because of the restrictions. Also the airlines keep getting stingier and more cramped since I travel in steerage.

2. Last place/time you flew? San Diego to San Francisco, last January, to visit ds.

3. How old were you the first time you flew? The first flight I remember I was 12 or 13 but I'm pretty sure that I had flown before that once or twice.

The most fun flight was on the Goodyear Blimp, in Florida. When they got to "altitude" they turned off the engine and it was so cool to float along in silence.
