Has anyone ever wondered about the various levels of fares on an airline. When I'm filling in time on a long flight I try to categorise the passengers around me and develop a scenario for each. It is amazing how many categories I can think of: you know apex, booked early, booked last week, booked just this morning, can/can't cancel and so it goes on. I only get up-set when I think of the airline staff travelling for a fraction of what I have paid and they are probably sitting up front in Business Class. But I re-assure myself that we all get the same level of safety. Come on everyone stop nit-picking and go back to studying your field/sea guides. And remember everyone on board has the same opportunity to see the same birds, provided of course they don't take their jaundiced view of the world to sea with then. That may be limiting.

I lament that I haven't been on a pelagic for years and I haven't even seen a Sooty Albatross but Port Fairy is so far away and has such treacherous weather I will never get there.

But Alistair will the Navy actually recruit "little ole ladies" these days??
