Have you ever "borrowed" certain items from planes. What have you taken from which airline/aircraft (eg. table from aer ingus a330, unlikely) more extreme the better????

I visited many planes during turn arounds and every time i disembark with magazines,beverages,chocolate,and even model kit planes,but of course they were gifts from captains and F/As.This was mainly in the 80s and the early 90s.

I've had f/a's tell me to take a pillow and blanket for later on in the airport. I usually try to round out my safety card collection too  Smile

Sometimes when I go up and make friends with the pilots, they let me have the AWABS/ACARS papers after the flight..it's nice to go over it afterwards and see what all happened. Good collectors items!

I collect air sickness bags and magazines. Sometimes I take safety cards. I've also taken pillows in the past.

Is it true that pillows and blankets are used only once, so it's no problem taking them?
However, why on earth take a safety card?! That must be a headache for the cabin crew because doesn't every seatback have to have a safety card included for the next flight?

Tokolosh, no, it's not true that pillows and blankets are used only once. They are all rewashed and used over.

Why on earth anyone would want to take a pillow from an aircraft is far beyond me!

So A340600.......your saying its 'fun' to steal.......?? and why does it say " DO NOT REMOVE FROM AIRCRAFT" on the back of every saftey card..???? Because if it's found missing, it's a gounding item....!! Yes, they may have an extra on board, but if they don't...that plane is not going anywhere....

Phil (Flykal)

I agree. I've even been on a flight where a group of passengers (first flight ever, I suppose) took everything they could -- blankets, pillows. cutlery, safety cards, you name it). It's like shoplifting ...

Tokolosh, yeah, I've seen that before too...the most difficult thing for our airline is trying to stop people taking the blankets. They are a very popular item to walk off the aircraft. I guess we should see that as a compliment that our blankets are so nice, people want to take them...but they all cost money!

Thanks for nothing, thieves. Of course, you do realise that you have now completely forfeited the right to complain about ticket prices, as you are pushing the price of tickets higher with every item you steal?

These are the same people who whinge about the cost of insurance and yet wouldn't hesitate to overstate a claim, or indeed create a bogus one. The sooner the law catches up with these people the better off we will all be.

How can you stop this happening? Probably almost impossible. Comes down to proper upbringing, I suppose. It's really disturbing that some people consider taking safety cards etc as "fun".

Removal of non promotional items from an aircraft (ie the inflight magazine) is not borrowing but theft. Sadly the fallout from an individuals action is borne by PAX collectively through higher ticket prices.

Most airlines allow you to take the inflight magazine as a complimentary copy. KLM, Korean Air, Air Canada are some of the airlines that allow that, says "Your complimentary copy" and on KLM's.. it says "Take me home" if i remember correctly. So I would not say it is wrong to take inflight magazines, but depends on the airline really..

The biggest mistake made by most human beings: Listening to only half, understanding just a quarter and telling double.
