Flying sucks but somehow flying in Europe is worse. The airports are old and shitty, the airplanes are crammed and when you are on one the service is nonexistent. But there is nothing worse than the terrible Airbus seats which are more Paris Hilton than Kim Kardashian. These things have absolutely no cushion at all which make them completely uncomfortable as you can feel the knee cap of the fat Romanian behind you poking into your back like you are the princess and the pea. Add to that the fact that you are stuck sitting squeezed next to one Frenchman who hasn't showered in a week and some Italian who screams into his phone for an hour and you are ready to abort somewhere over the Alps and take your chances.
