Caught the red eye out and actually slept some on the plane! I was next to a woman traveling to NYC w/ her son who had an audition at Julliard. He plays the bassoon. I used to play the bassoon, so we had ooodles to discuss.
She was nice, except for her desire to discuss airline catastrophes during takeoff and landing. She went for the obvious Hudson River plane ditch during takeoff, but during the landing at JFK, she actually went for the full 9/11 discussion. I'm not particularly superstitious when it comes to flying, but I did worry about being overheard by a sensitive air marshall and being dragged off for questioning.
