Re: Antisocial much?
Not so much antisocial as often busy or tired. It isn;t about never talking, it's about when and to whom. On the middle leg of a flight about 4 weeks ago (ATL to LAX) I got sat with a first time flyer, the first leg had been bad for turbulence so I knew more was on the way. So yeah I spoke with her during the flight, made sure she was ok when it got silly, made sure she knew what takeoff and landing would be like but respected when she looked like she wanted to read or watch TV, just like she respected when I was working. There are times when I don't mind talking (I spent a 7 hour flight talking pretty much the entire way to a sports physio, he was interesting and wanted to talk), but you have to look at a person and figure out if they want to. You cannot just land next to someone and expect them to entertain you the entire flight. First is a ****ing nightmare for that, you;d think its nice and quiet but stateside 1st seems to have way too many deputy vice presidents in charge of post utilised grail scouring all trying to out Breitling each other, business is normally full of people trying to work or sleep because they have more work waiting when they get off the plane. Coach is hit and miss, you either get normal folks, folks from business who couldn't get a seat or you get bingo wings.
It simply boils down to having respect for your fellow passengers, some people are all about themselves, others understand. Such is life.
