Flying from Atlanta to Washington DC. We were about 45 seconds post-takeoff when the guy beside me unbuckled himself and starting running up the incredibly steep aisle. The flight attendants immediately start yelling at him to sit down, even going so far as to fumble with the intercom. About 10 feet from the front of the plane, one of the crew said:
Flight lady: “Sir, I’m going to have to demand you sit down.”
Guy: “Ma’am, I am going to [poop] my pants.”
He barricaded himself in the bathroom for about 10 minutes and emerged to clapping and angry looks from flight attendants. He ordered a water with no ice in it when they got to our aisle.
On a redeye flight, just as I fell asleep, a woman passed out in the middle of the aisle and hit my leg. I was so doped up on Dramamine I didn’t even realize it and fell back asleep. The flight attendants put an oxygen tank on the floor and put the tanks mask over her mouth. Apparently they used my hand to hold it in place, so when I woke up a few minutes later, I was like “why am I holding an oxygen mask over someone’s face?”
I was asleep on a flight and the attendant was walking by and spilled hot chocolate on my arm. It briefly started me awake but I was so tired I went back to sleep. I was woken up a short time later by an attendant apologizing and offering me a free shower radio so there I am half-awake with a soggy chocolate stain on my arm and a shower radio in my hands.
I walked onto the plane and gave the 1st steward I saw a bag of Hershey’s Miniatures. “this is for the crew”.
The whole flight I was given free headphones and all the free drinks I could handle. I tried to pay but she just kept giving me my money back with every drink.
Well hipmunks, what’s the most WTF thing you’ve experienced or seen on a flight?
