Back in the 1980's, I used to enjoy flights to Spain, Greece, Canary Islands, and beyond. The planes used to have full air conditioning, so both smokers and non-smokers got a very clean and fresh flight experience. It was also fun to talk to smokers on a plane. Today they dont switch on the air-con because they say it would be too expensive. Now we have to fly in stuffy germ boxes. Its not fair.
I still remember that day long ago when I was at the airport ticket counter.The woman who was working the counter was friendly and must have seen the cigarettes in my purse because she gave me a seat in the smoking section of the plane without me having to ask for it.That was one very smart airline employee.Such pleasant memories.
