The looooooong trip over

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 6 February 2008 | Views [558]

So i'm here. And yes the flight was very very long and very very boring. They say that once you go business you never go back and i truly wish that this were the case and that i was rolling in money. Unfortunately i haven't married prince harry yet, or even some sort of baron, duke or earl and i can't afford such extravagances. Anyhow as you can tell i don't like ecomony. (Although etihad had quite nice economy compared to some people i have flown with). My main problem i think was the complete lack of leg room and the impossibilty of getting any sleep. I'm pretty sure everyone knows what a grumpy bitch i am when i'm lacking in sleep.

One other final whinge point. Abu Dhabi Airport is quite possibly the shittest place on earth. Come on people for an airport that size i expect more than 2 dodgy food outlets. And please please please get yourselves some proper ventilation. The whole damn terminal smelt of second hand cigarette smoke from the smokers in their designated areas. Iswear the whole damn airport smelt like a bloody ashtray! After a 15 hour flight in which i go no sleep the last thing i want is to be hungry, without a seat, and having to hold my breath for 3 hours.
