Any old time ex BA Viscount pilots out there from the mid 70's who remember Capt Bish - great pilot / interesting clothes under the uniform!

As the hotel limo driver was loading the crews luggage into the van one piece of luggage slipped from his hands and burst open. The bag belonged to the Captain and inside the bag was ladies lingerie. The First Officer asked the Captain, “So sir, how long have you been wearing women’s undies?” To which the Captain said, “Ever since my wife found lingerie in my luggage when I came home from a trip!”

Obviously they were worried "he" might get mistaken for one of their FA's.

A QF captain coming through Australian customs a number of years ago was stopped for a search.

The customs agent found the undeclared silk underwear the skipper had bought for his wife whilt o/s.

Customs agent points to silks and says that 'he can be fined for not declaring it'

Captain responds with 'It's mine. You wear what you want, I'll wear what I want'.

Customs agent shows all the grace in the world at being stiched up so nicely and says 'Certainly Captain. Have a great day!'

Angry

futher down in that link it says
"The REALLY stupid part of this is that the idiot could have used darn near any ID that he wanted, as long as it was official, including a Drivers License or work ID since you don't NEED a pasport to fly from the US to England! hehehe"
Is that correct???null

True, if you are British you are not obliged to show a passport for either entry to or departure from the U.K. However some form of identity to prove your British may be required. Without your passport this may be difficult to prove and you can be assured immigration will make it so.
Years ago a "Daily Mail" reporter tried it and had no problems.
The logic behind this is in the wording at the begining of your passport. Its a request from H.M. Govt to any foriegn power not to itself.

25 years ago I managed to fly from LGW to Rotterdam and back with no passport (just an airline ID) for an emergency repair job when my passport was at home. Only problem was an argument with immigration going OUT of LGW!

Meanwhile - United - It wouldn't have happened if the guy had flown Steven Wolfe

I thought UA had some transsexual pilots of their own so they should have understood the sensativites of this poor, confused, lost MORON.
