    Anyway we finally got on the plane…a tiny little pencil plane which took us to Washington.

    i don’t know the meaning excatly..but it might be – a narrow plane having a less seating capacity.

    I’m a flight attendant. And we have nicknamed all 757s pencil planes. Or, flying pencils. Because they’re long and impossibly thin.

    And actually, the little planes that I think you are describing, are CRJs, and they’re perfectly proportioned little planes. If you’re a Barbie or a Ken doll.
