The conductor had also decided to add to the ‘cosy atmosphere’ by switching off the air conditioning (apparently the people upstairs were too cold with it on); as a result, we spent most of the night slow-cooking to the soundtrack of machine gun fire.

    ... time there was not a Peruvian Airlines uniform in sight. Thirty minutes late they miraculously appeared, giving false hope of boarding, only to be delayed yet more. Eventually we boarded, but I've never seen such poor customer service on an airline, or such poor safety checks. Never again!
