My unfortunate view on a recent flight. Photo by Barb DeLollis.

Dear Travel Update readers: During my flight home from Las Vegas back to Washington D.C. Sunday, I sat behind a person (see photo above) who I wished would have worn a hat – or something – to cover his head. He was tall so his head was closer than any other head I’d ever seen in an aircraft seat in front of me before. I knew I wanted to share the photo with you, but   truly was at a loss for words (and a headline), so I turned to my Facebook buddies for help. Among the people who submitted entries for headlines, etc.: BoardingArea’s own MJ on Travel blogger Marshall Jackson, and The Forward Cabin‘s Jamie Larounis. Given the number of entirely too funny entries,  I decided to just list them all below. Enjoy the submissions! I hope you laugh as much as I did. – BD


(HEAD)LINE HELP: My friends, I know you will have fun with this request so put your writer cap on. I’d love your ideas for a headline for a blog post about big head below. I could’ve stared at it the entire way during one of my Vegas legs. I’ll cite you in my story. I am really at a loss for this one. Figuring you’ll crack up, but not sure what to expect really. – Barb

Tania Hernandez-Andersen this isn’t a funny headline, but it does feel like in modern travel you really have the chance to get up close and personal with your fellow traveler, and usually not in a good way! this morning a guy sitting one row behind me on a flight to Chicago smelled so strongly of alcohol fumes I thought I was getting lightheaded. He really must have tied one on last night.
