Ok so I’m in Amsterdam, Schiphol Aiport to be exact.
I left to KLIA last night only to find out the plane was delayed 1 hour 20 minutes because of a connecting flight from Jakarta, luckily I managed to jack some free WiFi near KFC….
…and had a few smokes, the time passed fast enough.
The train to the terminals was the emptiest I’ve EVER seen it, obviously Sunday night is not prime time to fly.
The plane finally left around 1:40am from KLIA, with me in a crappy seat, I mean really crappy, not even an aisle seat, no exit, no bulkhead, luckily the guy next to me didn’t mind swapping to the middle seat, perhaps the “I’ll crush you” look on my face persuaded him, I was kinda pissed with the attitudes of the MAS staff.
So I spent 12 hours sitting like this:
Not the best experience ever.
There was a lot of kids around but they were all pretty well behaved, just the fat old aunty in front of me who was determined to jam her chair back as hard and often as possible and break my knee-caps in the process..
I was walking around in the middle of the night as I couldn’t sleep…I took a seat on one of the crew seats to stretch my legs, bitch came up to me and said..
Bitch: “You can’t sit there”
Me: “Er why not? Where do you want me to sit then, on the floor?”
Bitch: “Isn’t the seatbelt sign on anyway?”
Me: “You are the senior stewardess, you should know, and as it happens no it’s not on.”
Bitch: “Well you can’t sit there, because of the safety equipment”
Me: “Oh I see, so you need special training to sit on this seat? Give me a logical reason why I can’t sit here and I won’t mind”
Bitch: “Well you can’t and you can’t sit on the floor either”
Me: “Ok I’ll just wonder round then because if I sit in my seat any longer I’ll be crippled”
Bitch: “I’m sorry”
Me: “I’m sure you are, you look extremely sorry”
I was kinda pissed then, so I drank like 6 gin and tonics and tried to get some sleep, I think I managed about 4 hours for the whole flight.
I saw the sunsight but was too sleepy to get my camera, extremely beautiful site, sunsite from the air.
It was and clear after that..
Then I woke up and had breakfast, am still feeling a little dehydrated though.
I’ve been here around 4 hours, so I’m quite bored, I went shopping for a while, bought some perfume, ate my super rings and bought 24 hours of net access for 10 Euros, it’s 6 Euros for 30 mins or 10 Euros for 24 hours so…
Yeah I know it’s still RM45, heavy eh?
But still using the broadband here makes me miss European Internet connections..
Stops me dying of boredom though, or falling asleep and missing my flight.
I checked out the bookshop, for some, er books..but found this instead:
Ass Parade was pretty price though at 60 Euros..
Now here I am blogging in a cyber thingy in Amsterdam airport listening to hardcore Vocal Trance…
More reports of weird European stuff coming soon.
