“When you get into the larger aircraft it becomes like a hotel, with dozens of staff supporting the plane based in a galley area down below. You have very comprehensive cooking facilities, and on larger aircraft we have looked at theatres, with spiral staircases and a Steinway grand piano. The limitations for what you can put inside a plane are pretty much the limits of physics, and even money cannot always overcome that. Even so, people are still always trying to push [the limits]. ”
Magic in the Air
After years of flying, it's easy to take air travel for granted and to see it simply as a way to move quickly from point A to point B. That's why you must watch this utterly charming film from Vodafone called An & Ria's First Flight. It's about a private jet journey by two women in their 70s, neither of whom has ever flown before. It runs nine minutes, but trust us, you'll consider it time well spent. The last few minutes are particularly priceless—and an excellent reminder of just how extraordinary it is to be up above the clouds.
