Quoting Dc10s4ever (Reply 8): Too bad we cannot have commercials in the USA like that. Some one would be offended, and some one would get sued for $$$$$$$$$$$$$$. Some times I really hate how conservative the USA is
Just like the anti drink-driving ads in the UK would never be brodcast here in the US...to realsitc and offensive...yet effective. Go figure.
The U.S. is WAY behind the 8-ball on this. (and a lot of things)

Anyone got any stories of wonderfully camp aircrew? I remeber one lovely boy working for Olympic on a domestic flight of about 30minutes who was terribly professional and very very camp.

Passengers were crammed into seats and subjected to various indignities, etc. I would love to see that one again!
