This week I have done been flying like crazy from one city to another. I flew mostly Jet and Indian Airlines, now re christened
“ Indian”. I noticed that the in flight crew of “Indian” had a sense of humor while the in flight crew of the private airlines were polite and distant. Here are a few in flight experiences with “Indian”.
On a flight from Mumbai to Delhi, the pilot was coming around shaking hands with random passengers. A lady totally bowled over and all agog by the dashing pilot asked him the name of the after shave he was wearing. He answered with a smile and a wink in my direction” Old Monk”. The joke went over her head.
(And…no I didn’t wink back :p)
On a flight to Chennai one absolutely drunk passenger kept asking a stewardess for “balm” because he had headache. Fed up she sent a Steward:
Steward (officiously): “ I am sorry sir, due to security reasons we are not allowed to carry ‘bombs’”.
He kept quite for the rest of the flight after that!
And lastly people flying “Indian” too have a keen sense of humor as this passenger displayed.
On a night flight back to Bangalore. I am in the aisle seat and next to me in the middle seat is a guy in his 30’s I think. He asks the Air Hostess for a glass of water. The over worked and over stressed lady brings a glass of water and slams it on his table muttering under her breath “f***k y**” or something like that.
Without batting an eyelid our man turns to her and says earnestly “How I wish you would”
Dunno if this was an original line but no prizes for guessing who giggled hysterically.
