Crisis observations
I feel a bit guilty as the steward serves me my toasted multigrain walnut sandwich with turkey plus a ginger ale before anybody else - this is budget after all. But then again he knows me, they all do, since we signed our corporate deal with Jetstar and I am using them on trips to Hong Kong and Manila, Jakarta and - today - Bangkok. We book online, and on longer flights I splurge on an extra 20 dollars for an exit row seat (13d, if you must know - you can still recline while row 12 can't), order my sandwich at the door and bring enough Monocle, Fast Company or Vanity Fair magazines to keep me busy for the flight.
