We're coming home from our Christmas break on a red-eye that gets in at 12:15 January 1--15 minutes into the new year. A co-workers is suddenly very concerned, she says its bad luck to travel at times like that.
She says its not superstition, just that more accidents happen at holiday times. I've flown on New Years before (although never had the year change in the air before) but I can't believe she's right. Anyone?
