Hi TF's. I read Bobbies journal and it looks like he has booked a flight and will soon be in the LOS. Here is a little travel "tip". CANDY! Bring a box of chocolate candy and give it to the flight attendent who is serving you. Say something like "thanks in advance for your wonderful service". They are used to having to serve customers who are often rude,annoying or demanding. By doing this you have seperated yourself from the others and are likely to recieve "excellent service" for the remainder of the trip. This is really important on the 10-14 hour flights to Thailand.I did this on Eva in February. Half way through the trip the flight attendant gave me a bag with a bottle of wine, a bottle of champagin, about 50 bags of peanuts, 5 tooth brushes, and 3 eye blinders. All this because I took the time out to buy a box of chocolate. I can't promise it will always works, but even if it doesn't at least you brought a smile to someones face.
