Finally success in the air! Virgin America was the way to go. Just hipster enough to have tolerance in the seats and aisles. One lady even leaned in to say "that's so cool!"
I asked the seatmate to get a picture. Attending to that was why I kept repeating myself typing.
he got three

Excellent pictures -- very mysterious. I think you have an author photo for the novella when it's ready to be published...ReplyDelete
'...Please put your tray tables in the upright position and stow any typewriters safely under the seat in front of you.'ReplyDelete
Kudos for working the machine on a flight!
Wow, inflight typing. That vaporizes my altitude records, and you've set a new speed record, too.ReplyDelete
I hope, on the back of this ad for Virgin Atlantic, Mr Branson boosts your return ticket to First Class. Maybe you scored some jet-setting new typospherians too!ReplyDelete
I am only slightly disappointed that your machine is not a Skyriter! :DReplyDelete
Nice! That took some guts.ReplyDelete
That is gutsy, i don't think I could've pulled a typewriter out on a plane.ReplyDelete
Btw, if LA is your destination (gleaned from your last post) and you're still looking for a typewriter shop, try Star Office Machines in West LA, repair shop to the stars.
Unfortunately not many for sale but shelves full for repairs.
Very cool. This is a recurring fantasy for me, but the closest I've come is typing in the airport.ReplyDelete
I see that you're manfully ignoring the video screen in front of you to work on your Remington Portable. Excellent!
Excellent. But terrifying. Well done.ReplyDelete
I love it! I bought a Skyriter for just such a use (then I swore never to fly commercial again due to all their....)ReplyDelete
about the commercial airlines, I was about to start training for private pilot license when I realized for the same money and time i could finish a degree.ReplyDelete
I've posted a follow-up of advice for you lot to try skytyping too.
How brave. Did you think of bringing ear plugs in case your seatmate complains? ( :ReplyDelete
I'm interested in knowing how much of a hassle you were given by airport security for attempting to take a hunk of metal on an airline.ReplyDelete
None whatsoever! They usually smile and ask about it or say they used to have one, except the ones that are too busy. Truly it has not yet been an problem at all.ReplyDelete
