I've been hacking up phlegm so loudly and in such great quantities that I'll feel right at home when/if I get to Mysore.
I doublechecked my ticket and I finally noticed the FIVE HOUR layover in Frankfurt.
I'd put the Mysore rug in the carry-on (for sleeping) but it's already three pounds over the limit. Apparently they're getting quite strict about weight.
I think they should come up with a new formula that also takes into account the passenger's own poundage.
