A380


I recently got to fly in the new A380 airplane. What a joy. It's sort of like the first time you ride in a new car. Everything is clean, fresh and smells good. The takeoff is amazing. You don't really feel any thrust. At some point you just happen to be in the air and you wonder to yourself, how did that happen? The plane feels very tight and put together. There is none of the rickety squeaking like the older planes. There is incredible lighting. The lights turn blue and purple and fade ever so slowly. Even the exit and bathroom signage is groovy and sleek. The TVs are brand new LED screens. Nice. The only setback I had was once the flight was over, I overheard someone talking about the bar in the back of the plane. The bar? That's right, there is a friggin bar in the back of the business class section. I didn't know about it until it was too late. Oh well, next time I will check it out. Maybe even do a drawing of it if there in no turbulence.
