When we step onto an airplane, it’s common to feel a touch of nervousness. Regardless of how frequently we’ve flown and our knowledge of flight safety statistics, those jitters can creep in. However, once in a while, an event occurs that makes us acutely aware of our surroundings. Such an incident unfolded on this flight, leaving the entire plane on edge, unsure of what would happen next.
Then, from the back of the plane, a solitary man spoke up and delivered the perfect remark to alleviate 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!”
