Today I had the best airplane seat ever. It wasn’t a first class suite or a lie flat bed or an upper deck all to myself. It had very cramped legroom, required my seatmate to reach around my legs, and necessitated me to be pretty still and touch nothing for the duration of the flight.
Why is this the best airplane seat ever you may ask?
Because I was the “co-pilot” on our Cape Air evening island hopper out of San Juan today! Really. If you have done a similar flight before you will know exactly what I mean. I knew we were in for a little prop plane, but this experience was quite different from other small planes I had flown on before.
I’m not sure I breathed for the 35 minute flight, but I’m sure I’ll never forget it!
Have you had a similar experience on a small aircraft?
