View Full Version : When the Captain Asked "Coffee, Tea or Me?"

I love these funky photos when airliners were still in their infancy. At one time the pilots also served the meals!

It looks like she's handing him a piece of a broken plate.

Perhaps they hit some CAT.

One stripe? Can't be a pilot :} I think he's an air steward :ok:

Actually, she might be a bit of a trollop; look at those sultry, dark eyes.

So, as the good captain was serving the salad, they quickly found out that they are staying overnight at the same city after landing, and written inside that napkin is the name of the hotel. Now, is she giving it to him, or is he giving it to her?

Still, this could be the genesis of a historic moment in aviation: the very first bonking committed during a layover.

Aaaah! A different era.

or is he giving it to her?

He probably was later

Or to her boyfriend in the seat behind her?

Or to her boyfriend in the seat behind her?

Are you suggesting that the Steward/Pilot was attracted not to the sultry brunette, but to her boyfriend?

I think she may be handing him the napkin with her phone number on it?

He's handing her an XXL Condom with the message in it, "I can fill this"

14th Jan 2009, 15:47
Fill it with what?

I can state authoritatively having been in the industry 40 odd years (really odd some of them were), that that bloke is definitely not the Captain on account of him not having 4 wide fat rings around his sleeve. He comes from an age where cabin crew tended to wear the militaristic uniforms favoured at the time, and currently by SAS for their female cabin crew who look like Russian Airforce Officers.

I think the note says 'drink later Ma'am?' as that is an approach that will not get the perpetrator the sack, but sets the scene for an 'assignation' later that could equally be construed as an invitation to supply a drink later in the flight. Bunning Custard!

So it was the steward trying to pull the bird then?

How things have changed!

I presume those when they had a layover after each leg.

All of which reminds me of the dialogue between a fellow Laker captain and a young stewardess when she visited the flight deck with his coffee.

She (trying to impress because she was interested): "Is that Paco Rabane that you have on captain?"

He: "Well actually I have a hard on but I doubt you can smell it!"

I suspect she never tried that tack again.
