Airy Announcements

August 25, 1985

Judith Morgan's delightful "Salute to the Hard-Working 'Stews' " Aug. 11 created echoes of agreements in this traveler.

To Judith's hatred of the ubiquitous "We would like to welcome you to . . . " instead of just plain "Welcome!" I add my pet grammatical peeve, the inevitable phrase in the remarks at flight's end: "For those of you continuing on. . . ."
