Funny Virgin Complaint Letter

January 27, 2009

I’m sorry if you have already seen this, but it had myself and Bf crying tears of laughter!  I found it on Yahoo News. This is a letter recently received by the Virgin Atlantic customer complaints team and is currently being hailed on news blogs as possibly the funniest customer complaint letter ever! Virgin Atlantic press office […]

Someone please think of the poor geese!?

January 26, 2009

I just found this on DelighfulEccentric’s blog, a post called US Airways Crash – Bird Report. Its a video from the ‘bird’s eye view’ Who finds the time to make these?!

Another bizarre dream!

January 25, 2009

First nightmares, next naughty dreams. I think something is seriously wrong with me! I’ve gone from having horrific nightmares to having a most bizarre kinky dream ever! …I won’t tell you all of the gory details, but it involved a Harry Potter style ‘invisibility cloak’ and some seriously kinky cockpit fun with Bf on one of […]

Strange dreams.

January 25, 2009

Well, I was all prepared for a night alone. Bf was called out to do some over-time, then crewing called and said the flight had been delayed by four hours. Not bad, as it meant that he could spend the afternoon with us.  After lunch, we got a few extra hours sleep (me too, since […]

Running on the Spot!

January 22, 2009

I feel like I haven’t stopped today. Life and in particular, work has been non stop this week. I was short of work over the Christmas period, and have been desperately trying to make up for my lost income by working extra hours this month.  That’s the only downfall of my job. I wish I […]

Comical Aviation Videos

January 19, 2009

I just found these videos after a bit of hunting that resulted from my last post, and it’s various comments; so I thought I’d share. They actually made me laugh out loud! Firstly, following from the last post, I was trying to find examples of adverts by Ecstasky Air (‘the worlds first lingerie airline’, and […]

New Virgin Atlantic Advert. There are TWO pilots on the plane, damn it!

January 18, 2009

If you’re in the UK, you probably wont fail to notice the new Virgin Atlantic advert.  I’m really in two minds about it. I love the Frankie goes to Hollywood track, and all the 80’s references; but as for all the rest of the kitch, stereotype cliche’s. PLEASE!? Firstly, as Flying High said in her […]

A dirty trick for a pilot to play on his girlfriend.

January 18, 2009

I was just reading a post on Delightfuleccentric‘s blog about a date that her new-ish pilot boyfriend had taken her on. It was the first time he had taken her flying in his plane. She wrote: He asked me, “You doing okay?”  “Yep.”  And he dipped the plane a bit, forcing my stomach into my throat.  […]

“Don’t you worry about your Pilot in his line of work?” Errrrrrr……

January 16, 2009

Not much about Bf’s chosen career unsettles me, but the US airways Airbus A320 (flight 1539) that crashed into the Hudson River, New York managed to ruffle my feathers last night as we watched the news unfolding on the Internet.  The best website on the story that I have found (including many video updates) is […]

From my pilot’s tropical paradise, it’s back to reality with a thud (I hate builders).

January 15, 2009

I  officially hate our builders… Not the neighbour ones, I feel too embarrassed to feel anything else about them, and actually, they’re always pleasant.   No, I’m referring to the other ones that we contracted in. They are doing the ‘knock through’ work on our extension now. Its crap, I have never seen so much dust […]
