Goodnight from Sydney

Time to stop thinking and pour a glass of wine!

It seems that flight attendants are a bit miffed at Jodie Foster's new movie, "Flightplan," which shows flight attendants treating passengers rudely and being unsympathetic to Foster's character, whom they think might be delusional.

Having successfully undergone a common-sense bypass, Tommie Hutto-Blake, president of the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, said: "Should there be another 9/11, it would be critical for the cabin crew to have the support of their passengers, not the distrust that this movie may engender. Our fellow crew members who perished in the line of duty deserve more respect."

So do passengers Tommie, but all too often it is hard for passengers to get any - especially with US based airlines who seem to have difficulty putting the words "customer" and "service" in the same paragraph, let alone next to each other.

As for 9/11, Sep 11, or whatever other name you want to call it - sorry Tommie old son, that no longer works. The 9/11 card has reached it's limit due to overuse.

Wherever you may be - be safe!
