Thoughtful Economic Analysis and Existential Opinions

Paging Gloria Steinam


The flight attendants for Air China are young and pretty, obviously a proven branding campaign for generations. However, just like all flight attendants everywhere, they were over-worked, harassed, and annoyed. Rolling their eyes seemed to be a primary job requirement. Yet, they seem to have more authority than U.S. travelers normally see. When they tell you to close the window, it is not a request. When they tell you to clear the aisles, they mean NOW!

We were served two meals during the 14-hour flight, and I ate the steamed carrots in each . . . nuff said!

Of course, the highlight of the flight was watching the movie of “Alvin and the Chipmunks” in Chinese . . .
