Who knew?

July 27, 2009 6 Comments A+ a-

After flying an international trip, with 300 or more people locked up in an aluminum tube for 10, 12, 14 or more hours, I am told that the plane gets a little funky. (Duh! Remember, I am one of those 300+ people locked up tight in the plane.) But, just how funky it gets, I didn't know...

Our Customer Service Reps (CSRs) are the ones that actually open the plane door when we get to the gate. They are the ones to break the hermetic seal of human-ness. One of our CSRs, Linda, tells me that when she "pops the door" she holds her breath, and turns her head away. "It is, " she says, "like opening a can of ass...."

I don't even know what to say now....

I never thought about that before, but it makes a lot of sense. If you are on the plane, you get to gradually get used to the funk. Without the benefit of the slow ramp up of the stench, it must be a shock to the nose.

Unfortunately, now that you mentioned it I'm sure that I will notice on my next international flight. Thanks a bunch.
