Extracts from this document...


"Welcome to flight 753 to Osaka, Japan. We hope you enjoy your flight," an airline worker amicably exclaims. You stand in front of a drab hallway. From a distance, the airplane obtains the appearance of a gigantic white dove with colorful tail feathers, gigantic wings retrofitted with cylindrical engines, and crystal-clear windows allow people to veer inside the bird. The airplane perches on an expanse of concrete earth. Connected to the plane is dark tubing that connects from the bird to the airport like an umbilical cord. You walk casually into the entrance. Inside, the passage is narrow and uninteresting. Ash-colored moss covers the floor from the gateway to the plane. The same lifeless moss blankets the walls and ceiling and surfaces the entire hall in patches of lead. The ceiling carries rectangular fluorescent lights that only enhance the dullness of the passage. A dry, clean, hospital-like smell permeates every square inch of the hallway. Finally, at the finish, a flight attendant invites you inside the airplane. ...read more.


It moved sluggishly at first, but quickly in a few seconds. The plane continues to speed up and plant you to your seat. Then, you only hear the plane - nothing else. There is no more feeling of paralysis or earthquakes. You peer out the window and see the earth getting smaller and smaller; it eventually gets so minuscule that the clouds consume it entirely. The plane halts, or it feels like it stopped. The clouds stir, but you feel no movement inside the cabin. You glance around the room; many people snooze away their time; others converse. Eventually, the cabin goes into a tranquil state: no sound, no disturbances, just tranquility. An hour later, stewards gather toward the galley and prepare the meals for the passengers. The aroma of the local country's fare fills the room: hot steamed rice, saucy stir-fried vegetables, salty miso soup, and the fragrances of fresh-cut fruit combine and slightly perfumes the air so the smell entices any appetite (unless you don't like Japanese). ...read more.


It was a musical filled with much wonderful, funny, and sad music. Warm food, hot tea, and music make you drowsy. You fall into a deep slumber at your seat. "Sir, please wake up," a steward says. You rise and glance at your watch. You have been asleep for six hours. The steward hands you a package of tough shortbread cookies and green tea. In a few minutes, the airplane begins to land. The airplane's descent reproduces the feeling of takeoff. Out the window, the clouds regurgitate the surface back into attention. The many buildings of Osaka, Japan get larger and larger each time you glance out the window. Back on land, the airplane lands on the runway of the airport. It makes a noticeable thump that shakes a few people and excites some. The plane pushes you off your seat, but the seatbelt prevents the inertia from launching you forward. It stops and another dark tube connects onto the airplane. A voice on the speakers says we hope you enjoyed your flight. You grab your luggage and make your way out of the plane. ...read more.
