When we board a plane, we probably are at least a little bit nervous. Even if we fly often and we know all of the stats on just how safe it is to fly, we can’t help but be a little jittery. Every once in a while, however, something happens that makes us stand up and take notice of the situation we are in.
That is what happened on this flight and the entire plane was afraid of what was coming next. Then a lone man spoke up from the rear and said the perfect thing to break the tension.
Shortly after a British Airways flight had reached its cruising altitude, the captain announced: “Ladies and Gentlemen, this is your captain. Welcome to Flight 293, non-stop from London Heathrow to New York. The weather ahead is good, so we should have a smooth uneventful flight. So, sit back, relax, and… OH… MY GOD!”
Silence followed… complete silence!
Some moments later, the captain came back on the intercom.
“Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m sorry if I scared you. While I was talking to you, a flight attendant accidentally spilled coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my trousers!”
From the back of the plane, an Irish passenger yelled…
“For the luvva Jaysus… you should see the back of mine!”
