It may be because I am going on holiday – South India, since you’ve asked – that I have been particularly fixated on air travel this week.
One of the problems the air traveller faces is the sheer boredom of the flight. In-flight entertainment systems will only fill up so much time before you despair of the human race. The cramped conditions make it difficult to do anything remotely energetic but here is something I came across this week which might just help you while away those long hours.
How about drying your washing mid-flight? After all, there are some handy air blowers above your head.
Well, this is what a woman was filmed doing aboard a Ural Airlines flight from Antalya in southern Turkey to Moscow. It took her about twenty minutes or so to dry a rather natty pair of white knickers with black trimming – they look like a child’s pair to my untrained eye – by holding them up to the air vent and moving them about, to the astonishment of her fellow passengers.
Seems to have worked and a tip worth knowing if you spill your wine en route.
