An eyebrow speaks a thousand words | Letters
Even the old Soviet Aeroflot had occasional human moments (Aeroflot official: No one wants overweight crew, 26 April). One of the most eloquent and, indeed, elegant flight attendants I have ever seen was on an Aeroflot flight from Tashkent to Leningrad in the 1980s.

It said more than words ever could and I have remembered it for 30 years.Rev Dr Peter PhillipsSwansea• Join the debate – email guardian.letters@theguardian.com Continue reading... [...]
