Comfort In The Air

Thursday, October 26, 2006

One of those little tricks to be more comfy on the international runs is to get a seatbelt extender from the FA. Basically it lets you stretch and turn without getting all tangled in your seatbelt. It can also make it easier to tuck in your blanket or run cables.

Some people say it makes you less safe in a crash, but I'm with Bill Cosby - the helmet is so the ambulance guys can identify the body easier. The seatbelt (when it works) just lets them figure out what DNA was in what seat.

Anyway, now you can own your own seatbelt extender for between $60 and $75. I also think it's neat that they send you an FAA id for your belt.

    Remember, though, that if you are using a seat belt extension, you cannot sit in an exit row.

    What's an exit row? Is that something they have in the back?
