Of course there are such things like Boeing's disgraceful remark about Iberia's choosing the A346, and rude f/a's, but what, in your opinion, is the biggest airline taboo? Looking at porn inflight? Joining the mile-high club? Poor "choice words" spoken by airline CEOs? Interesting to see your opinions..... Have fun!

"They made a public announcement about how they were "disappointed" that Iberia chose the A346 over the 773."
That isn't the first time I've heard that comment before. From either company. Taboo would have been Boeing saying Iberia was stupid to take Airbus A346 over Boeing's 773. Saying they were disappointed is kind.

I flew Northwest from Detroit to Milwaukee a couple of years and the captain made an announcement before take off that included " I can absolutely guarantee that we will get you to your destination safely"
I hate tempting fate....
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

I wholeheartly agreed with what MD11luxuryliner said...don't even THINK about uttering the word "bomb" anywhere near an airport, much less an aircraft. No one working in the airline industry will ever take that as an joke. Period. Regards.

I was on a flight from TPA-CLE with a friend of mine, and we were talking about silly rules, and I brought up Fruitcake being on the TSA's list of things not to put in you carry on. He asked why, and I explained that on the xray machine it appears to be a bomb or some such thing. When I said this he turned as white as a ghost and was like, "You said BOMB on an airplane!!" It was actually rather comical. He was convinced that if someone heard us talking about fruitcake that the aircraft would be diverted and we would be kicked off the plane. It was all rather comical actually.
