For your comfort...

As the plane reaches cruise mode and seat belt signs are switched off, pilots pompously announce from the cockpit, “ Ladies and Gentlemen, the temperature outside is minus 50 degrees centigrade, but for your comfort, we are maintaining cabin temperature of plus 24 degrees C.”

Trust these guys to take brownie points for something that they must provide as a minimum. Seriously, do they want us to feel obliged for not flying with the windows open and freezing to death?

Imagine your barber announcing before commencing the hair-cut,“ Gentleman, I hold in my hands a pair of scissors that can clip your ears off. But, for your comfort, I will limit the cutting to the hair”.

With this laptop in my hands I could be writing a virus that would crash your computer. But I will merely write a comment on your blog which will inform you of that.

Mind you the person who wrote this is Subrato Bagchi, COO of MindTree consulting.

So yes they were doing u a favor by keeping the temp at 24 C.
