There Was No Air leaking From Overhead Vent

I’ve never considered myself an airline snob, meaning I don’t have a particular airline that I like to fly with as well as I genuinely don’t mind resting in economy, and don’t get me wrong, I’d appreciate to lay in first class with all the special amenities like all the people else, however it’s not so important that I’m willing to spend hundreds of dollars on it.

However, I had a horrible experience the other month that has made me reconsider the way I fly.

I was taking a easy, 4 hour flight out west that wasn’t supposed to be a large deal. I bought the flight for the night time so I could watch a movie as well as possibly fall asleep to pass time, however after resting in my seat for a few minutes though, I realized that there was no air flowing through the overhead air vents at my seat. Although I was hot, I wasn’t the kind of person to say anything about it. However, when the pilot said there were some technical difficulties as well as that we’d be resting at the terminal for over an hour before it was fixed, I knew I was in trouble, then no matter how much I wiggled the air vent, no air came out. I began to panic because I could feel my body overheating as well as there was no hope of cooling down. When I flagged down a flight attendant about the lack of air, she brushed it off as well as apologized. I sat in that seat dripping with sweat, praying that I wouldn’t pass out from the lack of air. To this day, I’m not sure how I endured the heat for over an hour without passing out. All I could think about was how much more comfortable I would’ve been if I were resting in first class.
