I was pissed (drunk) om a flight w/ Braathens 737 to Malaga, Spain....
Jeehh, I shiver just thinking about it: all over a girl in the seat behind me, singin/screaming "Relax...dont do it, if U wanna come" This was back in 1984.
Tumbling down the flightstairs, and luckely my friend speaks spanish and she briebed the customsguyz with cigarettes!

well this was on one of my most recent flights.I was flying CDG-FCO on an airbus a320.well after a good lunch and a 2 hours ground delay i needed to use the lav.well there was a guy standing next to the two but i saw that one of the lavs said "vacant"(dont get ahead of my folks).So anyway,i open the door halfway,and feel something pulling back on it-oh god.Inside was an old lady.Even worse i could not go back to my seat because i really had to freakin go,and then when she got out she said something in italian and i couldnt understand a word.It seemed like my and my mother were the only 2 on the whole plane who spoke english.oh god i was so happy to land at FCO that day-even though it was dark and gloomy.

Working (F/A) on my birthday: I kept it to myself, but someone found out and got all the crew at breakfast to sing happy birthday to me. Then on a flight IVC-CHC, the other F/A announced my birthday over the PA and while we wear clearing in got a group of 50+ (in age) women to sing me happy birthday while I was trapped behind the cart. Of course the whole cabin (about 55 pax) all stared and laughed, and I turned red. As if that wasn't bad enough, I bent down to pick up some rubbish, and one of the 50+ women caught a glimpse of my bum as I straightened up and yelled out "oh no! I missed him bending over!" and then grabbed my arse as I walked past! Word of advice for new F/A's - NEVER tell anyone at the airline when it's your birthday!

Espion007: How is it embarrasing to you if she forgot to lock the door? I don't get it.

Had a severe case of diarrhea just before my flight DJE MLA On an avro rj70. Half way through the flight another attack, Anyone who's ever been on an RJ knows it's small and the toilets are extremely small. But if you have to go you have to go, thank god the flight was nearly empty but I still think I killed the person who used it after me.

Was 2 weeks ago, actually.....was on a DL B763, JAX-ATL. Sitting in the last row of F/C, aisle, and had my bag and a few other people's in the overhead bin right above my head. So, the damn door on the bin kept flying open, the lock just wouldn't stick...we taxied, it'd fly open..slam it shut..and again..slam it shut.

As we took off, it flew open again.....with bags teetering over the side. So I stood up right after takeoff, maybe 1,000 feet on the climbout, and kept on trying to slam the thing shut...as soon as I did, it'd keep flying open again...all the pax around me thought it was funny as hell, I fought this thing for about a minute, after about 20 attempts, it finally grabbed- after all the attention I had attracted!

Needless to say, I was feeling less-than-professional. Some funny looks on the walk outta the jet  Big grin

On a CO flight from TPA to Houston in 1994. My wife, 6 month old daughter, and I were the absolute last folks to board. The gate agent told us to forget the flight, as it was totally overbooked, and we were flying Buddy Passes. After a quick head count, he grabs us, says "Got two seats, but not together.' Wife elects to hold daughter as baby tends to get squawky if she 's away from mamma too long. Flight was stopping over in New Orleans, and was full of football fans going to a game there. All loud, and getting full of liquor. Well, somewhere over the Gulf of Mexico, the daughter makes an odor of epic and Biblical proportions. Plane becomes silent. I was 3 rows ahead of wife and kid, and I swear, I thought something had died. When plane landed, wife hands me the baby, as she fetches diapers from the overhead, and I get some of the worst looks from passengers.

Indeed! She's now 10 and wants to tell that story to anyone who'll listen... "Daddy, tell them about the time I got everyone to get off an airplane...."

Hey, a little excitement(or excrement) on a dull flight is the spice of life, no?

No kidding. Some people are just waaay too sensitive. I could get the breastfeeding thread back a few weeks, but I can't be bothered to search for it. We've all been babies and a little smell won't kill you. Or the merest glimpse of a bared breast...

Well, i managed to absolutely and utterly nail my head on the overhead bin while getting on a Buzz flight in BOD to STN. I mean you could hear head hitting bin and a bunch of people asked if i was ok and "gee that hurt" . And i was sitting next to some cute guys!

Not exactly embarassing, but i tend to get sick to my stomach when arriving in LHR from LAX. I dont know WHAT the problem is, but ive tried all sorts of things and for the past two or three years this has been happening without fail. Body knows EXACTLY when we are within 50 minutes of landing because start getting shaky with grumbly tummy and Im hoping we dont get in a hold pattern. Once I had to go running in there within a minute of touchdown and didnt emerge for a WHILE afterwards- everyone was off the plane and the cleaning guys were already on. Was definitely embarassing to say goodbye to the crew! ( now an immodium AD with normal immodium seems to work ok- took about 4 pills the last trip but it seemed to work to an extent!)

In my college days, I was coming back from Paris to Houston. We were delayed 2 hours due to Hydraulic failure on an AF 747. So of course me and my buddies drank them out of liquor. Once we reached cruise altitude, I managed to fill two barf bags.

Of course this was before I became a pilot......Ah, the innocence of youth.



Failure is not an option.....

I don't see how this is embarrasing either... Haven't you ever seen a woman pee before?

On a flight from CLE to PHL...went to use the bathroom with my cell phone in my shirt front pocket...i go to lean over to flush and my phone falls in. I go to grab it only to have my arm come out green...luckily the toilet was just "emptied." although the green stuck around for a little bit!  Big grin

NWAFA. I see your point, but if she waved I don't really think she cared that much... My wife would probably have done the same thing.

I once had an elderly lady insist on an aisle seat assignment, as she exclaims

***"Oooh, you had bettah' get me an aisle, cause' I just had my hair done."***

To this day, I have no idea how I managed to hold it together until she left.

 Wow!

Once, back in the 80´s flying MEX-IAH-CDG in an AF´s 742 I accidentally dropped a can of Coke (sorry for the ad!!) over the woman sitting next to me. You can´t imagine how bad I felt. No way of changing clothes, the sugar melting and becoming sticky. The true flight from hell for her, and for me because of the embarresement!! Embarrassment

Cheers,

Hi all
Straying away from the exact question, I once witnessed the funniest thing ever in BMI flight two years back. It was on a BMI A321 from LHR to CDG and there was a mechanical problem with the monitor which kept closing in and opening out. More stranger was it's exact location which was directly above the headrest. (is that a normal location?) The poor soul that sat underneath put on quite a show for people behind him on the same side. The monitor would start coming out and you would see his neck bending downwards. Flight attendants responded very friendly but no alternative on a full flight. The poor guy was the nicest guy who just bent his neck quitely and never made a noise while he sparked laughter from people throughout the short flight.'

On a side note, aren't there any serious legal implication that the airline has to consider in regards to this?

For some reason I always get embarassed a bit when I'm putting my bag in the overhead. I guess it's cause my rollerbag is always slightly stuffed and I have to give it a shove or two to get it in.

In middle school, we took a class field trip to DC. On one of the planes, an MD80, I was in the Lavatory taking a whiz, and just as I was unzipping, the hot british chick from my homeroom opened up. I forgot to lock the door.
