Hmmm, sounds like the usual tired old apocryphal stories that do the rounds about airlines and their staff . The sad thing is the so-called 'serious' press seem only to happy to publish such puff pieces.

"They were all linked up together playing Fifa football on their Game Boys or PlayStations or whatever."

Wow - doesn't that mean they used WiFi (or whatever it is) to link up with each other? Thought that wouldn't be allowed... but whatever.

I honestly didn't think it was. It seemed vague, predictably silly and boring to me.

I call complete and utter nonsense on this one. As cabin crew I would never knowingly let people fulfill their sexual fantasies in the toilet much less in the cabin! I don't care how much they paid for their tickets, it doesn't put them above having to adhere to some pretty basic societal principles of common courtesy to your fellow passengers!

In the cabin no, in the lav, why not. As long as the seatbelt sign is off, they are quiet and there isn't a line I couldn't care less. If they want to get it on in such a nasty place that's their problem not mine.

Because it's my a** on the line if something comes of it and they're caught by another passenger...

Don't you know the verb " to pretend"?
Just pretend you didn't notice....I mean FA do it all the time when we ask them questions they don't want to answer

...and because you wouldn't let it happen does that mean the THOUSANDS of other F/As that work flights wouldn't let it happen??? I don't think so.

Well maybe I should rephrase - me and most of the crew I've flown with. Maybe some airlines are stricter than others on this regard. Maybe it has something to do with the cultural norms of where the airline is based. Obviously I can't speak for all crew all around the world - thought that was implicit in whatever I was saying (and that it was purely my opinion). You should try it out the next time you're on a flight and see what happens! Oh and do a TR too  Wink

Good for you. I know plenty of cabin crew that have openly suggested I take a girl into the lav.

Is this a Delta cabin-crew?  Smile

Plus she openly tells us that they have orgies when in the hotel, so why would they not let the passengers have sex in the plane?


It was a cute article actually...

While it's true that stories of orgies (especially with pax) are exaggerated 99.9 percent of the time, hooking up with a fellow crew member (or two) or an occasional passenger does happen, and it's not a huge shock to us that work in the airlines.

Huh?! What airline do you work for? I'd love to know how your employer could even discipline you for a couple having a quickie in the loo (assuming you weren't one have of said couple, haha!)

This is true, especially downroute on a 9 day pattern...that said, most times it's with either another crew and sometimes a passenger, but orgies? Unlikely.

Do women who are way past menopause still have high sex drives???
