Dear Air France
I would like to commend you on the lovely blankets that you provide for your passengers’ comfort. Mine certainly helped break the chill of the a/c during the night flight from Johannesburg to Paris 26-27 April.
However, I also have a confession to make. I had packed for spring in south of France, and did not expect to arrive in an icy cold Paris… When the pilot informed us that it was an underwhelming 1 degree outside, I panicked… How was I supposed to deal with this kind of cold in my thin spring jacket??? My eyes fell on the soft fleece blanket, and I would like to call it an act of survival. I borrowed your blanket. Please be understanding and note that I have every intention of returning it to you when I fly back to Joburg June 17.
In the meantime, you may be interested to know that this blanket is immensely versatile. I have only been its custodian for less than a week, but it has already been put to an astounding variety of uses.
I am now heading out on an epic hike to Santiago de Compostela, and the blanket will be with me every step of the way. As a token of my appreciation (or perhaps that should be “to ease my bad conscience for lending it without permission”), I will continue to update you on the wide range of uses this blanket can be put to and the adventures it will experience. I will post updates on this blog, and on Twitter using the #AirFranceBlanket
The biggest fan of your blankets
