How they’ve changed the world!
They’ve shrunk it. And they’ve made getting on a plane a little like taking a train or bus. Okay, perhaps not quite so common… but certainly a little more like it!
I remember a time when a journey on an airplane was a pretty special event. Nonetheless, many budget flights later (some more bemusing and terrifying than others) and I still get excited when I see a new budget airline’s map of destinations. So many places! And not too expensive! I just love visiting countries/cities for the first time!
I’m grateful for budget airlines. And premium airlines too, of course.
[Am seriously having a writer’s block, hence the delays; I apologise to my regular readers (thank you so much for sticking with this blog).]
