    Everyone dressed quite nicely to fly then, too. None of this slogging on the plane with wrinkled pajamas. I remember Da bringing me a "stewardess's hat" that he'd purchased in some airport during his travels. I thought I was hot stuff! LOL.

    No hot flannel on BA Word Traveller, but you do in World Traveller Plus.

    It's funny, I hated it as a kid - it felt like it was burning my fingertips off. Now, I miss it. :shrug:

    I suppose you do k now that they don't wash them after each use, just fold them up and wait for the next flight and dish them out again. :biggrin: :biggrin:
