    In 1971, I flew NY-Madrid, Madrid-Kinshasa-Johannesburg, and on the first leg, there was a woman with two brats in front of me, and another with one brat and an infant behind me, and of course, the plane was fully booked. No seat change option.The kids in front of me screamed all the way across the Atlantic and the fat kid with the bowl haircut behind me kicked the seat and slammed the tray up and down while his infant sibling screamed all the way across the Atlantic. I changed planes, gates and airlines in Madrid and thought I might at last get some sleep.
    You know what happened, don’t you?.
    The $%^&* kid with the bowl haircut was behind me, on another full airplane, all the way to Jo-burg.
    In light of that experience, it might seem impossible, but cattle car flying has gone all downhill since then.

    I remember when he worked at the airport as a luggage handler.
