Stupidest Thing You Have Ever Done On A Plane

Tue Nov 27, 2001 7:15 am

Just answer the question... here is mine:

(El Al flt#18, KEWR-LLBG, 747-458, 4X-ELA)

I wanted to read while on the ground so I hit the light button above me 50 times... to no avail, it didn't work.

The flight attendant comes to ready to kill me... i look up... that was the call button, oops!!!  Innocent

Ok, maybe not stupid, but embarassing. I felt like I was going to hurl after eating a cheese omelette for b-fast on the plane. I got up and tried to make my way to the lav as fast as I could but ended up letting it go in the middle of the galley. Fortunately, it was on the linoleum part (i.e. not in the aisle). EW.

Some pax are completely clueles when they sit in the wrong seat or think they're in your seat because they're looking at the WRONG boarding pass.

(Varig Flt#RG944 florianopolis-buenos aires (EZE)

Meal was being served, and there was a choice of meat and pasta. I wa seated in row 17 of the boeing 737-300. When the FA reaches the seat before me, and the passenger asks for pasta, he is told that there is no more (that's what I thought to have heard).

So when he reaches me, before he can talk to me, I say: (yelling)

" I'm sure you can get me pasta. I'm by no means gonna eat that sort of thing that you call meat, and that is really a whole bunch of insects!, so you better find me pasta eh!, 'coz if not my complains are gonna be heard even in Madagascar."

He says: "But.."

And i interrupt him: "But nothing!! or if not I'm gonna be in charge for you to be fired" ( I can't believe I was so crazy"

Then he says: " We don't have any more meat, but we have more than 10 trays with the pasta choice.

I took lifevest from the airplane hehehe and then when I was changing terminals I was caught while they X-Ray my carry on laguage hehehe
It was so embarassing hehehe

Anyway, I have collection of lifevest containing more that 15 different airlines.  Big grin

I never took any from the aircraft. Some of them I bought on eBay some of them I've got while working as a ramp agent (old vests from storage).

After what happened I never ever took from the airplane even safety card or napkin hehehehe


Advice - If you ever take any lifevest (but dont do it hehehe) and you have to change terminal. Take out the bullets with air hehehehe

Silly my  Big grin

I was walking down the jetway to board the US 752 and I got my foot stuck between the aircraft and the floor of the jetway.

My mom once got stuck in the lavatory of an American Airlines MD-80. She closed a curtain in the door (or something like that) and she couldn't get it open again.

Once, when i was asleep on the airlplane (not exactly asleep but in that groggy waking-up stage) and I had to fart. I thought it was going to be a silent one, however it wasn't and my mom ( she was sitting 8 rows in front) heard it. The old couple behind me moved to a different seat farther in the back. Good thing it was an empty flight on an AA A300.

This is based on an old joke, but it's a good one.  Smile

I was on a BA 767 last year, and it got very bumpy towards the end. There was a middle-aged woman next to me who was obviously a little scared of flying. The turbulance didn't really help her. Anyway, I decided to be cruel, so i started visibly praying, crossing myself, saying "hail mary" etc...the woman said "oh, are you catholic?" I said (totally dead-pan, of course) "no, i'm the Boeing cheif test pilot". I looked out of the window, winced and shut the shade quickly and then resumed the praying with my eyes tightly shut. I can only guess the woman's responce....... Smile



Ok, ok, that was a bit too cruel

oh you naughty naughty naughty person!

Well, i barfed while waiting for the toilet, what was worse was that my seat was the one just in front of it, so i could've just used the barf bag!

Other than that, while flying alone i read 'flights to disaster', which scared the hell outta everyone else, i read out interesting parts that described the phase of the journey we were in Big grin

When i go to Canada i'll read it and get my folks to take a picture hehehe.

I was on a USAirways flight between Pittsburgh and San Diego traveling with my younger brother. The flight attendants passed out the snack mix to my brother who was sitting on the aisle seat, me sitting in the middle seat, and the person next to me sitting at the window. My brother opened his bag of snack mix effortlessly while I fumbled around with mine. I tried pulling on it, tearing it, biting it off, but I couldn't get the blasted thing open. My brother offered his assistance, to which I sneared, "I think I can open up the bag myself." So grabbed two sides of the bag and pulled. The bag completely exploded, sending shards of pretzels, bagel bits, and cheese sticks raining on me, my brother, the person at the window seat, and the people seated behind and infront of me. There was a moment of scilence as my face turned beet red, and then all of us started to laugh. I looked inside what was left of the small plastic bag to find some salt and pretzel parts. The flight attendant did give me another bag of snack mix though.

One time while deplaning I turned to look at the cute FO and almost fell on my ass as he said "Goodbye."

Last week I went in the bathroom on an ERJ and put soap all over my hands to wash them. Then I pushed the faucet and realized there was no water. It wasn't really stupid on my part because it's usually safe to assume there will be water, but it was still yucky.

And then there was my Amsterdam-Newark flight in April...

Continental 757, 6 across. the "non bumpy" flight was hardly not turbulent. I was sitting in between my mom and this fat guy trying to do y homework. It is really hard to get a 5 pound text book, a spiral bound notebook and a pam pilot as a calculator on that little tray.

To the fat guy. A little drunk? I think so... here is what he drank:

THREE (3) 16oz. Beers
TWO (2) Small bottles of wine (maybe 10-16oz)
THREE (3) Scotch Whiskeys...

And he was wheezing away like there was no tomorrow. I was abou to tell the FA thta he was making me drunk wheezing all over me... Then I thought, 2 more hours to go, and then the fun, nortoiously bumpy 22L approach to KEWR... and the worst thing... no pics from international baggage claim. so no shots of the SAS Star Alliance 763 :-(

Jeremy

PS- During the head of mad cow, this was my agricultural check in the US:

him "were you on any farms"
me "umm.... no..."
him "have a nice day!!!"

Coming back from Athens BA707 in 1979 - the inflight meal did not agree with me at all - luckly we were sat at the back of the plane so as we taxied it i ran to the toilet - only just making it too!

Came back to my seat looking a bit pale and coughing a bit from the smell - just after we stopped the rear passenger door opened to let some officals on - the first thing one said was "f*** me who's died in here then'

opps !!

I have this hang-up about cracking my head on the overhead bins. I'm 6'3" so you'd think I'd be in a perpetual 'duck' in an aircraft, however, I do it every other flight. It really pisses me off.

1.I accidentally pissed in the sink rather than the toilet on an Air France 747. Boy the altitude sure can mess you up! Big grin

2.I opened up a Lav once to find an FA adjusting her bra!!! Guess even after all those years she still couldn't figure out how to close the door! (again AF 744)

3.Went to the galley, got a coke, and while returning to my seat, we hit some clear air turbulence, and, well the guy in the seat I had decided to hold onto stayed sticky till after landing...

4.My dad asked for a menu on a Coach Delta flight from DFW to MIA. The FA said "sandwich", but he insisted on having a choice. Finally, she said "Look sir, it's either sandwich or no sandwich, you choose!" to which he replied that he wasn't hungry anyway...

I was getting out of the Lav on a 757, and the door wouldn't open so I gave it my shoulder, and it just so happened an FA was walking right by when I did that-so she fell flat on the floor as I tripped into the coat closet. Oops! She didn't give me any snack mix that flight.

I knocked my glass of pop off the armrest table thing on one of AA's 56 seat F100s. I let out a big "F---" but the aircraft noise thankfully drowned it out. Light load so no one was sitting near me.

I never really had anything happen to me. I crawled over my whole family on a Lufthansa A340 flight from ORD-MUC 6 times! Also on that flight (it was on June 11, 2001) the cabin was dark. No lights were on and it was silent. My brother and I were there with playing cards playing poker. On the armrests, you can chose different channels, and it shows you the number of the channel you are on. We used those numbers as fake casino money. I kept betting and betting and winning and winning, and if I won one more, the number would be too large to fit! I lost and screamed out "dammit!" Lots of people heard. Also on that flight, I leaned over in the aisle and said, "wow, those people are going to Austria!" They were awake and gave me a strange look. Also on that flight, hehe, we were landing, and my brother started singing a well-known song with the verse, "Jamies got a gun." This women gave my brother this odd look, and appeared to be frightened. That was an awesome flight, and I can't wait to fly to Croatia again!!!

1.I was flying back to Athens on the 28th of October from LHR on an Olympic A300-600R. I was carrying with me 8 Cadbury Chocolate bars (1kg each) and 4 x-large Toblerones. My seat was in row 32 because I didn't manage to upgrade. The noise was terrible and in front of me were sitting 2 old Brits that had made me mad because they couldn't keep their mouths shut for a second! I decided to move to row 22 next to a friend. I got up and went to open the overhead storage to take out all the chocolates. At that moment, the aircraft took a really steep turn and all the chocolates pushed the lid and fell on the heads of the Brits. I was embarassed but glad because they were just too noisy!
Four days earlier, I was flying ATH-LHR business class and there was this cute FA that came and sat with me for an hour and we talked. When I was disembarking, she was sitting next to exit 1L to say goodbye to all the pax. I was walking in the jetway looking back at her while she was waving her hand and I fell in an empty wheelchair. I reached the passport control and I found out that I had forgotten my 3 packs of cigarettes on the plane (=600 cigarettes). I looked back and there she was with my bag. I looked in the back and she had added 10 little bottles of whisky. Then I knew that she knew that I was drunk the whole time.

2. There was a man in business class on an OA 747 ATH-BKK and he was walking around the upper deck only with his underwear!!! I kept making fun of him the whole time!

The funniest thing on one of my flights was going form LHR-EWR when I was 15. I was sitting at an exit row (AA 767), and chatting to the guy next to me and behind me. We started telling jokes, and just kicking back. The movie onboard was Titanic and towards the end the captain came on the PA and said 'As our movie is Titanic I thought I would inform you that we are over where the real Titantic sunk.' I open my blind and say (10 times louder then I planned, it was really just a joke between my and the lads) 'I see it!' Many people behind opened there blinds, saw the clouds and laughed, however one person said 'where?!'

I was going to Florida and I was sitting next to my best friend (we were about 10 years old) and we started ripping open those little packets of salt and pepper and throwing it at some kid in front of us. It was pretty funny..the kid started crying ..he was like 12. I guess you had to be there.

Didn't happen to me, but I heard a good story about a guy on a trans-Atlantic flight who was unable to sleep on airplanes. Several hours into the flight, everyone (except him) had fallen asleep...even his buddy sitting next to him. With his lone overhead light burning away, he read and re-read everything he could get his hands on, just to pass the time. Finally, he called the flight attendant and asked if he could see the demonstration oxygen mask. She shrugged, said "Why not", and gave it to him. He was playing with the mask, when he came up with a brilliant idea. He put it on, and with a terrified look on his face, he started to scream (semi-quietly), and violently shook his buddy awake.

Apparently, his buddy needed a new pair of pants upon reaching their destination.

My math teacher ad friends who decided to play a prank on the F/A. They were on a 737, and the three of them had a row. The guy by the window pullud out a can of potato soup, poured it in the barf bag, and pushed the call button. The F/A came, and he passed it to the guy in the middle, who looked in, grimaced, closed it and passed it to the next guy. The guy in the aisle opened the bag, looked in, said, "hey, there's still a good poatato in there!" and pulled it out and ate it. The F/A puked all over him..  Big thumbs up
