A Low cost carrier experience from start to finish!
My seat is 18D, an aisle seat, in a 3 x 3 configuration in this Airbus A320-200 aircraft. The space between rows is limited, so an aisle gives just a hint of extra space.
The service is efficient and courteous, with the trolleys passing just 3 times during this 1 hour 40 mins flight – for pre-purchased meals, purchasable meals for the rest, and finally the obligatory duty free.
The cabin is crowded, with screaming, crying, and ‘excited’ kids – hopefully this doesn’t set the tone for the hotel I will be staying at in Phuket…
Yet, amidst the chaos in the cabin, I find my own tranquil space in the ongoing turbulence that somehow has a meditative effect on me.
Of course no AV nor any form of other entertainment so I linger in the turbulence for as long as possible until we arrive on-time.
