• Returning recently from holidays, I was again struck by the habit of many people who -- when the plane taxis to a stop and there is, say, a delay of 10 or 15 minutes before the doors open -- stand, some in humped positions, half in, half out of their seats, while nothing happens.
Perhaps it is just us Irish who have this long-standing agreement with the airlines . . .?
