  • She was watching the cabin attendant with curious attention as the attendant walked down the aisle chanting her litany

    - Kaffe? Te? Pepperkaker?

    At about row 9 one of the passengers woke up and said

    - Ja, tack

    She suddenly relaxed, turned to me with a smile and said

    - This is the nightmare of any cabin attendant. A plane full of tired businessmen, none of them responding. If you look now, the ball will start rolling

    I watched the coffe flowing and changed my mind about just dozing the flight away. The flygvertinne exchanged words with my seatmate about a trip to Umeå last week, gave me my coffee and three gingerbread.
