So much for making that connection. Good thing I have music and a book I commented to the woman next to me.
A doctor moved to the back of the plane. Within 10 minutes we were rapidly descending into Buffalo, NY. Ironically, I will be there Tuesday night. Taxiing at the speed of sound it was like a scene out of one of those Airport or Airplane movies of the 70’s and 80’s. Northwest Airlines Flight 259 now arriving Gate 8, Gate 9, Gate 10, Gate 23, 24, 25,26. RTO, that one was for you!!!!
The paramedics enter the aircraft. Spend about thirty seconds with the woman and walk her off.
We applaud the doctor.
A short while after the flight attendant comes by and offers the doctor a bottle of wine for stepping in and perhaps saving that woman’s life.
I found humor in this. A bottle of wine? In this land of opportunity – meaning let’s sue the pants off someone – they offer him a bottle of wine? There’s a motivational reward waiting for you!
How about a free ticket to Buffalo?
