I've been flooded with comments from friends and co-workers about the redeye experience involving the lone, lonesome canine in a cage in the cargo hold of our 737 for a night flight to Newark. People are expressing amazement that it was audible, en route, all the way across the country...and while I tried using noise-cancelling headphones, just knowing the noise was there...and where it was coming from...proved to be a heart-tugging distraction, as it was to other passengers in the darkened cabin.
We've fortunately never had to fly our beloved Lucy anywhere, but I know she wouldn't like it. It was just an odd aviation sidebar -- one I'm sure others have experienced, but it was a first for our traveling team.
We hope you can join us for the broadcast tonight.
