Jerry and Elaine are on their way back to New York but learn their original flight has been canceled. As a result, Jerry ends up in first class and Elaine in coach. While Jerry has a wonderful flight with food, champagne and a beautiful blond models as a seat mate, Elaine suffers through the flight from hell. Back in New York, George and Kramer are supposed to meet Jerry and Elaine but the change in flight - and then a change in airport - has them running all over the place. More mayhem ensues when Kramer thinks he recognizes someone from his past. Written by garykmcd

Not one of the best but still a Seinfeld material.
1 July 2009 | by (Lebanon) – See all my reviews

Even if it's not one of the best and the best are many actually but still it is a must see episode as all the episodes of seinfeld. I am a Seinfeld addict. I have like three copies of all the seasons because I am scared one of the copies gets ruined due to my never-ending watching ... so I must have spares. Back to this episode... it is funny and has few master scenes and shows the egocentricity of Jerry and the fact that all the four know very well the shortcomings of each character, they can still be friends and they know that they can't live without each others. In fact what always attracted me to Seinfeld is the very idea of how they accept each others because everyone of us has something of the four and I don't fear admitting it and most probably that's what made people relate that much to the characters even in their worst dehumanized acts and that what made the show number one of all times. I can't believe that some people prefer Fraiser or Cheers! The latter two were the most stupid shows ever... there were even better shows but again nothing is better than Seinfeld and hats off to Costanza lord of all sitcoms.
