Different people have different reasons to hate air travel. I hate “Elbow War”. This happens when you are traveling in economy class and the person next to you is a stranger. There is a race to claim the common handrest between two seats. E.g. First person who sits, gets it. When you extend your hand to get something else from air hostess (dont know what the PC word…), you hand comes back to its original position only to realized that space it called its own is not occupied by different hand. This is very interesting because almost always there is complete radio silence or maybe i should call it “no diplomatic channel open” to negotiate.
