Murphy’s Laws For Frequent Flyers

Murphy’s Laws are Almost Always True!

Whenever I go travelling, it’s uncanny how many times I come across some bizarre scenarios for Air Travel that seem to repeat themselves.

I call them Murphy’s Laws for Frequent Flyers.

Murphy's Laws for Frequent Flyers

Sometimes they happen to me, sometimes they happen to others!

Here are my Murphy’s Laws for Frequent Flyers:

  • There’s no such thing as a bloody Gate Number One at any terminal in the world, not even in the smallest airport that has only one gate;
  • If you arrive early, your flight will be delayed.  If you arrive late, your flight will depart early;
  • Turbulence will only occur when eating the filthiest, stickiest airline food/pigswill expressing itself as a Picasso masterpiece on your white shirt;
  • The hottest woman on the flight is never, ever seated next to you; and
  • The amount of carry-on luggage space available on an aircraft is inversely proportional to the carry-on luggage idiot passengers bring aboard.

What about you?

    Can’t agree more with the last one!
    I often wonder how those people manage to get great big suitcases past security, yet they try and stop my little cabin roller…

    If you have a very close connecting flight, there will not be an open gate available for the plane you are arriving on.
