The thought of being cooped up with a population of yammering idiots
on a Boeing 777 is enough to cause me to drive - - not fly - - to
any US location in the 48 local States.

As to the ultimate in scenarios - - can you imagine one of those Airbus
Superliners (700 souls) having a landing incident , and while 700 souls
are escaping down the chutes, there are persons - - still anchored to
their cell phones - - exclaiming to the person on the other end: " Now,
I'm stepping onto the inflatable chute - - now, I'm on the chute - - now
I'm off the chute - - now what are you fixing for dinner??"

Just a comment by someone who has avoided serious auto accidents by
dodging idiots who are totally engrossed in cell phone conversations
and not knowing where they were in traffic.

I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am
not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.
