Suspicious smoke trails
"Smoking or non-smoking?" Such questions are now a thing of the past in the world of air travel. Every big airline in the world has a no-smoking policy. In the past, however, passengers would merrily light up any manner of nicotine inhalant, from cigarettes to pipes and cigars, and proceed to spread cancerous fumes throughout the cabin. Smokers report that it was a very civilised way to watch the world go by.
Some people try to relive those stale-smoke-stinking bygone days while hunched in the aeroplane toilet or, like the American comedian Ron White a couple of years ago, go one step further. He was arrested as he walked off his private plane in Florida last year after smoking marijuana throughout his flight. Apparently the fug was so bad the pilots had to put their oxygen masks on.
