Traveling can sometimes be a bit of a nightmare. Can I hear a rousing 'AMEN' to that?! If you live in a smaller metro area as do I, it can be an even bigger nightmare because you have to take two planes to get most everywhere and at least one of those planes is a small regional jet. These are usually crammed with people and flight duration is short and does not allow time for the typical service you would encounter on a longer jaunt. I have many times been served by flight attendants who were obviously stressed by this and really offered nothing extra to the service experience.
