A SILENT PRAYER AT 30,000 FEET ...!

                             

Ladies and Gentlemen, meet my seatmate on United Flight #162 to Boston, Mr. Hal I. Tosis.  No doubt his friends call him "Hal."  I spent the full five hours of the flight breathing through my mouth and thinking, "For the love of God, does anyone have a breathmint ...?!?"

You don't carry Altoids?  At the very least, carry a spray you can spritz in the mouths of sleeping offenders. ~Mary

There are 2 things that can make a lengthy experience in tight quarters that much more unpleasant body oder and bad breath. Was  he a talker? I worked in dentistry for 17 years, so I know the smell and know it well!!!

Marty I could not help but laugh as I read about your plight on the flight!  You poor thing.  I had that happen to me once.  I ended up in the very back seat with a lady that had a fur coat that shed (therefore I was sneezing) and halitosis....I think that was Hal's sister...Hali tosis! Heh Heh! Of course being in the very back seat, I had to endure the stench to a point that I felt nauseous!  I leaned as far away as I could get from her and I finally realized five miles would not be far enough!  Glad you survived!

Talk about your "Captive Audiences!"...sorry to hear that your flight wasn't all that it should have been. Maybe the return flight will make up for it.....Kit

I once had a similar experience on a flight from Bangkok to Karrachi. The guy next to me smelt so bad that I was frightened to eat anything in case I rapidly saw it again.
