Have you ever gotten sick on a flight?

I was flying to MIA today and just after the 10,000 feet bells I suddenly became ill. I was in row two and ran to the lav. The FA balked as I was going in. When I came out, she clearly understood I was sick. A minute later I was back in. This happened four times.

I have never been sick on a flight, nor have I been around someone sick. I've never even thought about "what if" I had to use one of those bags -- it would have been really messy.

While the seat belt sign was still on at least it wasn't the most inopportune time to get up -- we weren't on an active runway, taxing, on takeoff roll, etc.

I will say the FA was great. Kept checking in on me.

Just curious.

PS -- for those wondering, I got it all in and cleaned up after myself.

Intenationally or not, this may be the funniest post of the year! Please don't edit this classic!

It made me feel really gay (as in happy)!

Um...might want to fix that type-o in the title!

I didn't start puking, but on a recent flight sure thought I was going to....and the panic of "I'm pretty sure this won't all fit in this bag" did come to mind. I have no idea why I felt so bad that flight...bad airport food? (probably).

Bahahahahaha Freudian slip of the year...

But the more I read it, the more I think it wasn't a slip at all, and this is a very craftily worded post all the way through...

How could you NOT read a thread with a title like that!

Especially with this note:

No, but this one time on a 777 from LAX>ATL, the woman in 6C did.

I'd tell the whole story, but the lock police would show up.

And, no, it wasn't mine.
