Delta Flight

That's me taking this picture, last Sunday, while stuck in the very very last row of a MD-80 together with a bunch of fellow Koreans occupying the last 2 rows.

What intrigued me was that how come all of us are Asians in Rows 37 and 38? Is there some kind of a racial discrimination going on?

By the way, it is a known fact that passengers in the back of the plane will have the highest chance of survival in a crash. Perhaps, it was my watching of too many episodes of LOST, that I started imagining the aftermath of the crash of this flight.

Wouldn't it be poetic justice that it would be us - the bunch of Asians that got stuck to the back of the plane to be the only ones to walk out alive? Muahahahahaha.......

Anyway, the flight turned out fine, albeit a slightly bumpy landing as the plane hit the tarmac diagonally. I guess I am glad to report that everybody survived to live another day.

Life goes on for everyone.

Why were Asian passengers sent to rear rows? Hmm, I suspect there were too many fat ang moh passengers on board and the captain needed skinny guys to sit at the back to balance the load.
No kidding, lah. During a stormy flight to Chicago this past February, the captain requested five to six passengers to move to the middle section of coach class.

It's a little ridiculous to be paying so much for an air ticket to hang your life in the air. =X

Everton: There were in total 8 of us in the last 2 rows. :(

Derrick: Pardon me if I need to correct you but statistics-wise, air travel is the safest mode of transportation.

But having said that, although I love flying (cos it always means that I'm going somewhere to relak. muahahah!), there is always a fear that 'something may happen'. =S
