During my first encounter with these planes, I asked for a window seat and she said to me "dear, don't worry, you'll get both". I had no idea what she meant and when I began to walk to the plane, I thought it was a joke, but it wasn't. It reminded me of the movie from the 60s/70s where a small plane goes down in the jungle surrounded by headhunters. The convict has to bulles left after they were able to get the plane fixed and it takes off, but two seniors agreed to stay behind because there was too much weight with all the people. He agrees with the elderly man to shoot both he and his wife and the last bullet would be for the man, but what the elder man didn't know, is that there were only two bullets, not 3.
After he shot them, he got on his knees and while crying, he put his hands in prayer, as the drums of the headhunters stopped, which meant that they were coming. THIS IS WHAT I thought about when I first entered the plane.
Since my first encounter with this small AIr Canada Plane, I am no longer afraid and can sleep on it quite nicely. The Captain and the Co-Pilot are normally really nice and they make it a good flight for us.
