In the past couple of weeks I have been hearing some pretty strange and funny things from passengers. In Detroit, before I boarded a flight to Elmira, a passenger said this about the CRJ he was flying..... "Boy those widebodies are small!" I laughed as a walked onboard. And I also heard a passenger say this about a 757 as it took off from Memphis..... "WOW!! That is a really long and skinny commuter jet!!"

And this poor old lady that must have been like 83, kept asking me what all the "gagdets" were onboard the CRJ and she also asked if she could use the airport bathroom while we were flying. She didn't even know we took off yet! And a friend of mine who is also a flight attendant said that one of her passengers said "Ahhhhhhh, its a small one!!!" as she went to her seat on one of NW's brand new A330's. Boy, some passenger can really make you laugh even if they don't mean to.

When we flew EWR-LAX on CO in December 2003, we were on a 762 in both directions. The women sitting next to my mom and I (we were in the middle) remarked to us, "Wow! This plane is so tiny inside! I hope I can handle it for six hours!"

I would have hated to see how she would have reacted to a 738.

2 comments come to mind:

1. A young lady sporting and a tight tee shirt emblazoned with
with the picture of a truculent tabby asked if our planes FL were as new as those NW DC 9's.

2. A pax wanting to economize and travellling with his pet Shitzu asked if he could check the little doggy as checked baggage and not having to foot our pet fee. "I'm entitled to check up to 3 bags and checking Camay would make 2 bags."

Zippyjet, I've had similar comments... While waiting to board Ship 761 on 6/2002, this one older individual asked me if this plane had recently come out of overhaul. I told him it recently came out of the factory. He then had the balls to argue with me saying there is NO WAY that DC9 just came out of the factory. I said "Sir, That is a Boeing 717." Up until boarding he refused to believe that it was a Boeing 717 until he saw te safety card.

I love getting into these kind of deals when I'm at the airport.... Somebody sees a CRJ and thinks its a 747. LOL!!!

Fbgdavidson,

Laughing my $#@ off here. I love that one! I think that will definitely have to move up to one of my favorites of all time!  Laugh out loud

Zippyjet,

From your description of her outfit, were you even listening to her question?  Big grin

I can be in such a hurry to post my reply here at A Net that sometimes my editing skills are like Russian Airliners, not too reliable. BTW, that young athletic tanned leggy young woman was wearing Daisy Duke shorts. I did indeed listen to her question and fantasize; Let me give you a detailed description of our planes versus those NW DC 9's. Alas, I smiled and told this comely lass that our birds are younger than 5 years and and that those NW DC 9's are almost as old as me and I am old enough to be your daddy. Its nice to dream.  Big thumbs up

Sounds like the guy knew a little bit. Sounds like he knew that DC-9s aren't built anymore and he mixed a DC-9 and a 717 up, who on airliners.net hasn't done that? and I am sure a few a.net people have.

It wasn't like this middle aged guy I saw at DTW one day while getting ready to board a Mesaba Saab 340 asking his wife "I wonder which of those 747s we are getting on"

When I was about 7 or 8, at was at the kidsport at PIT, and these two ladies were talking. One of them pointed to the tower and told the other " You see that tower, well they tell all the pilot's where to go and what to do. Pilot's do nothing but sit around and touch the buttons that the tower tells them to. McDonald's workers are more educated than pilot's."

I didn't know much, but I still was like wtf.

I had a pax who was in her late 40's (I am being kind on the age) told me she DID NOT want to sit at a window seat because when people in front of her ROLL the WINDOWS down it will mess her hair up! I for once in my life was speechless!!!!!!!!! The other FA who I was working with said her hair was"the higher the hair the closer to god"!LOL...........I really love people and my job!
