The other night the service was over, the flight attendants had cleaned up the cabin and asked everyone if they wanted refills, then the call light at row 18 right on the A320 went off. The flight attendant approached,

F/A. "May I get you anything?"

Pax. "I need to go use the restroom, could you wake the person next to me up so I can get out of my seat?" I thought this has got to be a joke. (The pax was a 40 something year old woman who was making the request.)

F/A looked at the man who was asleep (or so the pax thought, he later said it was the only way to get some peace from Chatty Cathy), his one eye opened and it rolled, knowing he (the pax) had a sense of humor the f/a jerked his arm and said. He get up and let the lady out.

Pax, "Thank You."

F/A ," Yeah but you are on your own in the lavatory."

Pax, "There is a call light in there too you know."

Folks, hate to break it to you. You are on your own in the lavatory, unless it is an emergency, and yes it is ok to ask the man snoaring next to you if you can get out.  Smile

I can usually talk a hot flt. attendant into a little mid-flight entertainment.
Well ok, one time.

That's a bizarre request.  Smile

Might have to try it next time I'm flying... I'm sure the F/A would have a good laugh  Smile

Thanks for sharing!


I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

Of course, in the US, they always looked at me funny when I asked for "Sparkling water please."

I have since learned that it's called "Club Soda", but that's not quite the same thing guys  Big grin

And just to be even more weird and annoying: "No ice please". No I'm not trying to further doom the airline financially. I just think my drink is cold enough as it is, and I don't want to dilute that great "club" taste...

Last year on Air NZ during a domestic flight from AKL-WLG, there was a young foreign lady who pushed the FA button, the FA came and she asked the FA for a bottle of breast milk to feed her 1 month old girl. The foreign lady must have been embarrassed about asking because she was whispering as quieltly as she could, but I still heard her request. I tried so hard not to crack up in laughter, but after about 1 minute I cracked up. She was flying with her husband and two daughters.

Back in more relaxed times, I left the flight deck to visit the lav. While waiting for it become available, I was in the galley, fixing a coffee, chatting up the flight attendants. Suddenly, the law door was flung open and there it was. A 50ish lady, sitting on the toilets, pants down around her ankles, asking "loudly" where the kotex were. For once in my career, I was speechless. All I could do was turn to the flight attendants for help. I had heard many stories, and thought most of them were of the "urban legend" variety. Not anymore!

If not now, then when?

I once saw a "high-society" B**ch from CGH-SDU that wanted anyway possible the board with her poodle in ger arms, not in the cage, not even less in the cargo area. Resoult, the Attender in front desk after about 20min explaining the situation to her said: "mam, this is an airline company, we travel people in our seats not dogs nor any animal, if U wanna travel with your dog, take your ass to a car and a have a nice 5hrs drive. The hole line claped their hands and the "lady" got out of the line.

This was on a JJ flight in 2002.

Congrats to the attender

Starlionblue -- you must be European -- have a good friend who flies back and forth from the UK to US all the time -- she never wants ice -- of course, I always want more than they give me. Flying together, we're fine, separately, we loose --

Obviously not a critical issue, and we both fly NW between Detroit and Amsterdam regularly -- but a definite (and critical) cultural difference

Yes, those flights are crazy with ice sometimes. When the water comes out in between the services, it is always the question to ice or not to ice? We sometimes ice the entire pitcher and then use hot water. The ice melts and the water is ice cold. Problem solved. I think.  Smile

Thanks for flying with NWA !

F/A: "May I offer you something to drink?"
Pax: "Pepsi Light , one ice cube."
F/A: "No problem."

Not a passenger, but surely a strange request.

Back in the 1960s a relative who was a dairy farmer in norhtern California told me that a hippie had walked up to him at his barn and asked if he could buy some "non-violent beef." When asked to clarify, he said: "Well, you know, a cow that died of natural causes."

I'm glad you mentioned the charter airline part, because I did recieve ice cream in coach on Air Canada this past summer.


You and I were meant to fly, Air Canada!

Just finished a flight where a passenger told both the F/A and myself during boarding that he would have to borrow one of our cell phones to call his family since the flight was running late. When I told him that I did not typically loan out my personal cell phone, he was insulted and proceeded to tell us how we were obligated to let him call his family. All I could think to tell him was that there were pay phones in the terminal which he could have used, right up until boarding.

Customers in general are great to be around. It is the ones that are clueless in society that gives me the greatest humor and laughter. I used to get mad at the insanity. But then again, if someone comes from a family with just one limb on the family tree, it is not their fault, is it ? As far as passengers using my personal cell phone, if I have time, and they are nice maybe. After all, that is my personal cell phone, paid for by me with my paycheck and does not have the company logo on it. That would be like me asking the Ford Executive in 1A to use his laptop since I have a Ford in my driveway. (Hhmm, but the again, I'll bet that laptop is paid for by Ford as a business item.)

How many airline people on here, have people asking all the time, "Got a buddy pass for me?" and you really don't even know the person?
