“Shh!!! Be very quiet–we're flying over rich people.”
–Whispered over the intercom of a Southwest Airlines flight this morning by a flight attendant as the plane left John Wayne Airport. John Wayne, of course, is notorious among pilots and passengers for its wild, nearly vertical liftoff, designed to make as little noise as possible as to not annoy Newport Beach residents.
Few people on the flight laughed. Probably Newporters.
