How to enjoy a relaxing flight….

Do you travel with people that need special attention all the time? There exists a simple trick how to separate from them during a flight. All you need to do is to register for the frequent flyer program of the airline and feed your profile with “unusual” dietary requirements. The combination of “gluten-free” and “kosher” will trigger the airline to give you a seat where they have you under their special observation – far away from everyone else of your travel group. Enjoy your privacy during your next flight. Also enjoy travelling in the company of religious fringe lunatic crackpots.
