    ..is just wrong.

    Thank heavens the season will soon be over.

    I have suffered the after effects of this tasty but ultimately offensive vegetable numerous times in the smallest room of longhaul aircraft, and it isn’t pleasant.

    Are you sure that it was asparagus?

    Does any airline serve baked beans?

    Very funny. Feed them asparagus (and maybe some baked beans, and maybe some cabbage and brussels sprouts as well.) Then stick the seat belt sign on for the next seven hours.

    Seat belts on because of unexpected turbulence! (Sorry)

    The old adage,

    “A gentleman is a man who knows how to eat asparagus but doesn’t”

    I understand that airline seats have some thing in them that if one has the likes of baked beans or asparagus or sprouts, other passengers don’t get to know!

    Like some sort of carbon matting?

    Not sure that does much good, judging by some recent experiences; horrific stench coming from the row in front aboard Qantas in F – smelled like something had died.

    VK…………. had QF just served the Rockpool Lentil based starter. It was delicious but I swear if it could have been harnessed I would have reduced flying time to SIN by an hour!!!

    You have to wonder who creates these menus and do they take accoubt of confined spaces for many hours after they have been consumed?

    Vile asparagus again this week; thankfully, it’s the arse-end of the season.

    Let’s hope Heston doesn’t stoop to this:

    Flew Swiss to LCY last week, and was subjected to the most awful “pong” for most of the journey. Kids swore it was not them so had to be the passenger in front.

    Until we were in the rented car going through the Blackwall Tunnel on our way to Kent and it hit again. The 8 year old could no longer keep a straight face and he finally fessed up!

    I think I’m now in favour of banning all kid from planes – even my own!!!

    Try some kimchi on a Korean Air flight, and then come back and talk to me… 😉

    Communipaw…….oh how true, been a while but I recall it lasts for days and days.
