How can you compare your experience of 400 -500 American flights to her 10-20 Russian flights experience?  :laugh:
Don't ask about my flying experience as I only travel by donkey and only heard the applauding when my FSU donkey trip has landed!

  I remember the last time I flew on, the ride was as rough as the landing.  I was the only passenger and it was the donkey that clapped when I got off.  Sounded muffled, though, because he was clapping his ears.  This was an amazing sight to me and one I will never forget.   :cowboy:

I have heard applause at the end of every landing in Ukraine, but not on my few flights in Russia, I don't have enough experience to say whether or not its common on Russian flights, but definitely its a tradition on Ukrainian flights.

I have never heard applause on a single flight on any airline here in the US, or on my flights to Western Europe. It's definitely not an American thing.

Just my two kopecks,

FSUW are not for entry level daters. FSUW don't do vague FSUW like a man of action so be a man of action  If you find a promising girl, get your butt on a plane. There are a hundred ways to be successful and a thousand ways to f#ck it up
Kiss the girl, don't ask her first.

only times i ever heard applause was landings in russia.
being an aussie was both amazed & horrified at the same time.
1st at watching fellow passengers cross thenselves,close there eyes & get a death grip on seat armrests at take off & then horror when they clapped on landing,why you might ask
alright for them i had to get back on the damn things to go home
spoiled by qantas safety record,tupolovs are hard to take  :o
