Bizarre story this.. I fell asleep once on a Sri Lankan Airlines flight from CMB to DXB
, in business class. I had listened to my disk-man earlier (this was pre-iPod, clearly) and had a few CD
's lying in the seat next to me. When i woke up they were gone and when I was looking for them some Sri Lankan guys (they were non-working crew) sitting across the aisle told me that, while I was sleeping, some other business class passenger had taken them.
I couldnt believe my ears, but I walked over and told him to give me back my CDs, but he denied having them. I didnt want to start some shouting match, alerted the crew, and eventually the captain had to come to convince the guy to cough up my CDs.. Reluctantly he did, eventually.
When we landed he made sure to stay out of my way and deplaned at the very back in economy, which was probably a good thing..
(The other bizarre thing on the flight was that I had an economy ticket, but upon boarding the purser immediately offered me a business-class seat. "Sir, there is much more space for you there!"... Strange, but I gladly took it)
