Happy Saturday, readers!
When traveling you have an opportunity to meet a wide range of different characters—and an even larger opportunity to overhear the conversations of an even wider range of characters. Sometimes, I think people forget that when you’re talking on a plane–especially if it’s before take off or after landing, the people around you can hear you.
One of the miles blogs that I follow, Point Me to the Plane, has a blog series called “Say What? Overheard on the Plane,” which is completely dedicated to these funny conversations from these characters. Here are a couple of my favorites from this week’s edition. I hope you enjoy them too! And when you’re done, hop on over to Adam’s blog at Point Me to the Plane to check out the rest of his entries. He writes some great advice.
United flight from Kansas City (MCI) to Chicago (ORD)
Flight Attendant: In the event of a loss in cabin pressure, oxygen masks will drop in front of you. Once you have finished screaming, put the mask on…
and in the same speech …. In the event this flight turns into a cruise, your seat may be used as a floatation device.
United flight from San Francisco (SFO) to Washington (IAD)
The plane was still at the gate with the door open
Flight Attendant: Ladies and gentlemen, if you left a Subway sub at the gate please come up after boarding has completed to claim it. If no one claims it, it will be distributed as crew meal.
Just keep your ear open the next time you’re flying. If you hear something juicy, be sure to write it down and share! 🙂
