On the morning of Tuesday, September 11, we were about five hours out of Frankfurt, flying over the North Atlantic. All of a sudden the curtains parted and I was told to go to the cockpit, immediately, to see the captain. As soon as I got there I noticed that the crew had that “All Business” look on their faces. The captain handed me a printed message. It was from Delta’s main office in Atlanta and simply read, “All airways over the Continental United States are closed to commercial air traffic. Land ASAP at the nearest airport.

November 23, 8: Simonetti has operated a Web log since January, calling it Diary of a Flight Attendant, and said she did not hear from Delta about the site until after she posted a set of provocative photos of herself in her Delta uniform.

In another, she is leaning over the seats, her blouse unbuttoned, exposing part of her bra. Simonetti said she posted those photographs because she thought they made her look pretty. The airline declined to comment on the case. Over the last five years, the number of people posting blogs, or personal journals on the Web, has skyrocketed.

Structure of the atmosphere Earth’s atmosphere Lower 4 layers of the atmosphere in 3 dimensions as seen diagonally from above the exobase. Layers drawn to scale, objects within the layers are not to scale. Aurorae shown here at the bottom of the thermosphere can actually form at any altitude in this atmospheric layer. Principal layers In general, air pressure and density decrease with altitude in the atmosphere.
However, temperature has a more complicated profile with altitude, and may remain relatively constant or even increase with altitude in some regions see the temperature section, below. In this way, Earth’s atmosphere can be divided called atmospheric stratification into five main layers. Excluding the exosphere, the atmosphere has four primary layers, which are the troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, and thermosphere.
Exosphere The exosphere is the outermost layer of Earth’s atmosphere i. This layer is mainly composed of extremely low densities of hydrogen, helium and several heavier molecules including nitrogen, oxygen and carbon dioxide closer to the exobase. The atoms and molecules are so far apart that they can travel hundreds of kilometers without colliding with one another. Thus, the exosphere no longer behaves like a gas, and the particles constantly escape into space. These free-moving particles follow ballistic trajectories and may migrate in and out of the magnetosphere or the solar wind.
The exosphere is located too far above Earth for any meteorological phenomena to be possible. However, the aurora borealis and aurora australis sometimes occur in the lower part of the exosphere, where they overlap into the thermosphere.

I had not truly realized how lonely my life was getting to be until the other day when I was on a layover in Rio de Janeiro, in my hotel room about to take a nap, and the maid knocked on my door. As I ran up to throw some clothes on realizing I forgot to hang the “Do Not Disturb” sign on the door, and that I was in just underwear, I quickly got dressed and answered. She asked in Portuguese if I needed her to clean the room, and I politely declined as I wanted to nap.

Anyway, one stewardess in particular kept passing by me, and the flight started out with small grazes of the arm or elbow every time she did. After time, she became increasingly determined to knock me into next week.
I was really starting to be bothered by the carelessness of this woman who looked like someone from the cover of a Roald Dahl book. She never apologized for it, not even once. Not even, in fact, the time she nailed my elbow so hard with her drink cart that it sent me lurching forward in my seat. How I never heard her coming was amazing to me since she was so forceful in her approach. And then, karma hit. And a giant jolt of rough air hit our plane.
And this particular stewardess, who I shall call Janine, was standing next to me, facing the back of the plane, holding out a plastic garbage sack when it happened. And she went, whoops!

Gazlay says she questioned why as she worked to get settled in her seat, but after getting her baby settled and out of his carrier, the flight attendant asked her again to comply with the rule.
