Tales of Katya (and Bob) – what is faster?

Filed under: Family,Humour — Porcupyn @ 5:50 am

Compared to their parents, both of whom took their first flight only after they were old enough to vote, both Bob and Katya are veterans of air travel in USA, in India and, of course, international flights. What that also means is that they both have had that first experience of a LONG international flight. Here is how it played out:

Baab: By the time he was on the first international flight that he was old enough to understand the experience, he had travelled by air within India (but not within the USA). So, on that flight, which happened to be an India to USA flight (with stops in Europe), he commented: “Amma, we should have taken Jet Airways instead.” When asked why, he said: “It would be much faster to get to our destination!”

Katya: Having spent one year in India, she is more used to Indian Railways (though she has been on flights within the USA and within India). So, on Delta Airlines from Dubai to Atlanta, she goes: “Amma, this flight is taking too long. I am bored. We should have travelled by train instead.”
