Thomas Cook's flight today from MAN-GOI operated on A330 G-TCXA had to delay boarding due to a pornographic film being shown when the crew switched on the aircraft's IFE.

Encouraging mile-high club members to go for it if you ask me!!! Very funny!

This is thier secret to speedy boarding. The faster you get on the more you get to see.


The only valid opinions are those based in facts

Was that to check for stains on the seats  Silly

What did they say was the delay in boarding... "Technical Difficulties"

Must've been an interesting title  Smile

JG  Yeah sure



First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

I hope they removed any sticky goo from the seatbacks before they sent the a/c out to gate...



Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

haha this topic is great!

Funny enough it had just come outta the hangar after a maintenance check, and the reason given was "IFE System technical error"

LOL! Only TCX!

That does not qualify as "Mile High Club", sorry. I would peg this as "Somewhat-Mile High Club".
This reminds me of a time in 1998 I was on an Air Canda 747 from FRA to YYZ in Executive First. Just before the flight, a German man who looked like he literally just crawled out from under a car with oil and dirt stains on his clothing and very unkempt sat down next to me. About an hour into the flight, we started watchin our IFEs and I happened to notice him watching "Wild Things" with Denise Richards and Neve Campbell. Well... during one of the infamous "scenes", I glance over and he has a massive erection poking out of his pants. Talk about an uncomfortable moment.
Seriously folks, I don't know how anyone can get that excited while sitting in a tube with 400 of your closest friends and FAs constantly walking around. In fact I often think about aviation to get my mind off "that", it's like the extreme opposite. Cheers.

So that's why our flights are always delayed when they are in the hangar for maintanence. There isn't enough 'back rows' for this type of thing, otherwise the whole a/c would be watching. I wonder if the thought had crossed MOL's mind for making more money, IFE x-rated channel.

I wonder if Tilton (of UA) heard about this. He's always looking for ways to squeeze more money out his customers.

Not a porno film, was a scene from one of the onboard movies.
