There was a time when airline travel had a touch of glamor to it. People would dress up and conduct themselves in a civilized manner. Flight attendants (or stewardesses, as they were called) were respected. Everyone was on their best behavior as they jetted off into the skies. Times have changed. Plane flights today are no more glamorous than an inner-city bus trip. Mutual respect seems to have gone out the window. Those of us with manners have little recourse when affronted by selfish, unhygienic, misbehaving cabinmates.
Have cheap flight tickets made air travel too base for civilized folk?
