  2. These two women are delightful. To think, this was their first flight on an airplane. Wonderful.

  7. Had already seen it, but gladly watched it again. I rarely laugh and cry at the same time, but this was equally as funny as it was absolutely touching.

  8. Wonderful. Life can still be fun during your senior years...well, if you've got some money.

  10. Couldn't just say something totally positive could you Derrick? Had to throw in some sour grapes at the end!

  13. @ "Had to throw in some sour grapes at the end!"

    So does sour grapes and reality mean the same thing?

    And who the f.ck are you anyway?

  14. It's curious that she pronouces Jesus, with a hard J burrowed from English, but the -ay sound the e would have in Dutch. Does anyone who speaks Dutch known how common this is? I've heard it more than once in Dutch films, even on thoroughly Dutch words. Even though the hard J technically doesn't exist in their language.

  15. Ooops...my pronounces lost an N and it ended up in my know...
    I swear my keyboard is possessed.

    It's strange and annoying how somebody can get to you with a little comment.

    B*tch, do you mean to tell me that every senior citizen in the Netherlands can afford to take a vacation to Barcelona? I'm happy for those who can.

    What I said was the truth. Some old folks don't have the money to travel. I don't. I can't even get to f.ckin' Disney World, b*tch.

  17. Do you think we care that you can't afford a trip? Is that their fault? Is it our fault? IF you bothered to look at the video you would probably have noticed that these women live in modest homes (actually they look like apartments) and they don't look well off. You may have also gathered that it is obvious that VODAPHONE paid for the flight as part of their PROMOTIONAL CAMPAIGN. And even if they did have the money to pay for it: whose business is it anyways? Maybe they saved all their life for something like this? You know nothing about their backgrounds and if they were well off, don't you think they would have been winging around the world on trips long ago? Why do you have to knock it?

    Do you have to constantly come on here and be miserable all the time? You have this huge chip on your shoulder buddy. Get over yourself. You couldn't just let one positive, uplifting story go by without spreading your bitterness?

    Btw your profanity laced response is a perfect example of your attitude and some people are tired of it.

  18. Loved it! Would have been fun to be there with them having a blast!

  19. That was so charming and funny.

  20. Now I know why they keep explaining how to buckle and unbuckle a seatbelt.
