A Very Inconsiderate Passenger!

An Italian gentleman (and this is not a racist remark, I just want you to imagine English spoken with a strong Neapolitan accent) checked in at the desk next to me yesterday. I just happened to be checking in a pretty young 20's something French blonde at the time and was enjoying the experience!

The Italian said, loudly "You know what eet ees I have discover on thees visit to London?.........Pickled Eggs!!!"

All three, myself, the blonde and the agent next door all looked puzzled by this non-contextual remark and, as he walked away, said Italian muttered "You will understand!"

As a warm, fetid aroma wafted upwards, all three of us understood only too well!!! The cheeky blighter had "let one go" as soon as he'd got his boarding card!!!

Now, I felt my face slowly turning scarlet, frightened to death that young blonde would think it was me!!!

How unkind was that???

Surely this should be in "News and Rumours"?

Some people have far too much time on their hands, someone broke wind when I was at work today, big deal.

F_C, I think that you missed the point. The problem is not too much time but too much work. So, when time is available, rather than moaning about employers and dumb govt regulations, some folks chose to comment on the lighter side of life.

I would call this post a ... breath of fresh air.

WARNING: Never insult or annoy your cabin crew.

They may accidentally drop something in front of you, then drop something else as they bend over to pick it up. Be warned.

I have heard more than one hostie admit to this, and from different airlines. Now I understand what a tailwind is.

And yes those bright yellow foam earplugs fit nicely into your nostrils, you'll look cunning, but silly.

Well coming back from the states the other night there was an awful smell as one passenger exited the potty. I then noticed that insteead of returning to his seat in Club he continued to walk the lenght and breadth of the club cabin spreading the same Eau De Potty around the cabin before he returned to his seat, I could see at least 4 of the 15 pax stir from slumber as they wafted in the awful aroma!!!

I have never experienced this kind of flatulence, either from myself or from others. I can only conclude that I have succeeded in drowning my guts in alcohol, so that they cannot function and that I sit next to the most fragrant and charmingly well behaved people.

Always like to carry a bottle of Roger & Gallet's eau de cologne on long haul - very useful in these situations.

It seems to me that this chap demonstrated excellent CRM skills. Having realised that it was the blonde who had dropped one, and being the gentleman that all Italians are, he immediately took the blame, with a certain amount of humour. He was obviously following the guidelines laid down in CAA Standards Document 29-version 1-18-09-01, page 16 (1).

Capt Air (and is that name significant in this thread? )
Thanks for quoting the ref but I have just been on a refresher course and can advise that this Document now has a small flat-pack air-freshner included at Appendix B.

OK, OK, back to work.

What a hoot, that was a good one. It reminds me of the time I made Garlic Pasta for myself and another Pilot on his way back to South Africa from Las Vegas. It was 24 hours and something in that mixture started working. By the time I got him to the airport we were both passing it off so loud that very time I laughed I would rip one and vice versa.
We I got him to the gate he blasted a couple of cuties in line. They turned and said , "Your not flying with us!!!" I almost died.
Life does have some funnies..........

Yes, your right, Helicopter Pilots have lots of class but its all low.
