A Short History of Air Travel

Flight #1801: GRD to ORD to BOS. 6 a.m.

Filtrated stale air. Florescent white brights. Beige plastic. Folding trays. Blue upholstery. Broken departure moniters. Lines. Tile. The scent of coffee. A yellow life vest that you can inflate by blowing through the red tubes. Moving walkways, bright advertisements, an M16. Lite jazz filtering through hidden speakers. WELCOME in twenty one languages. A last boarding call.
