Stairways... on a plane!
Snakes on a Plane and Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont are pretty much as opposite as two movies can be. But both fun. I think I must never have been in a 747 before, because I spent an awful lot of time boggling at the grand circular STAIRWAY in the middle of the plane. This seemed, to me, about as plausible as having a garden on the plane, but everyone else assured me that such things did exist (the stairways, not the gardens).

For an extra touch of hilarity, the ticket seller carded harrock. Apparently you are allowed to go to an R-rated movie at age 18, but you have to be a full 21 before you can buy two tickets to one.

Current Mood: amused amused
Current Music: itunes shuffle

Actually, I could see a garden.

Certainly, I've heard of full-size pianos, which kinda made me boggle the first time I heard it. :)

I don't know of any domestic US flights on 747's... a few years back I arranged for a BA flight to be 747 bos->lhr and 777 on the way back, and got upper deck seating. Current passenger 747's have a pretty cramped stairway... but back in the day, there was a *piano lounge* on the upper deck, instead of "another 30 seats". (The 777 was nicer overall, both of them are "a *lot* bigger than they look"...)
