Flashermac Posted July 28, 2013 Report Share Posted July 28, 2013 In the late 1970s I flew from LA to Bangkok on a plane that was nearly empty. I figured we'd fill up in San Francisco, but nope. A few got on and a few got off. The plane flew across the Pacific with only a handful of passengers. Two years later, I made the same flight and it was packed. Turned out it was full of people on travel tours. The guy sitting next to me was a stock clerk from New York making his dream trip - Tokyo, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Singapore, all costs included. He was paying less for his tour than the price of an ordinary economy ticket. But is still was a lot better for the airline than flying empty.
