What’s been your most memorable (good or bad) flight experience?
Adele Hawke, Adele’s Salon and Skin Clinic: “I love flying and had a flying lesson once, but just don’t have time to do more. I had a bad experience was once on a flight to Los Angeles and it was really rough. The pilot announced that in his 30 years of flying he’d never experienced it that bad. The meal trolley went ‘flying’ down the aisle!”
Marcia Scally, Parkes GP: “I had a nightmare experience when my twin boys were 23 months old. Our Air France flight from Lisbon to Paris was delayed by weather and then we missed our Emirates flight to Sydney. We were left stranded and had to upgrade to business class to get a flight in three days or wait six weeks for economy seats.
To make matters worse, just before the flight home Ashton accidentally slammed a door on Tomas’ thumb, severing it.”
Blake Godwin, EWS Electrical: “In 2014 I had a very memorable flight to Papua New Guinea to walk the Kokoda Trail. We managed to not only do the standard 95km trail, but did all the scenic detours and walked 135km. I went on nine different flights to get there and back!”
