By the way, Brad, did you ever notice that anyone would applause after successful landing? I believe it's a peculiar feature of us Russians. The plane lands - Russians applause. On foreign airlines I haven't ever seen anyone applauding...

On planes going to party destinations (islands, Las Vegas, etc...), it's common.

It's also likely to happen if the plane is full of a sports team or church group or other collection of kids traveling together. Especially girls soccer teams... :-)

But yeah, generally not. Only for the above special cases.

i noticed that it used to happen almost all the time on international flights when I was a kid, but now US to europe(and vice versa) flights rarely end with everyone clapping.

also, cracks me up that the arrival post is in LJ before the departure post! ( intended behavior, but still funny to read)

Well, understood behavior, but still kinda buggy. Friends pages sort by absolute time, and user pages sort by time-you-said-it-was. And because I didn't tell it timezones.... it gets it wrong. *sigh*
