XXX TSA Scanner Humour

November 26, 2010

Ok, so I just saw this and I thought it was funny, so I thought I’d post it for you to have a giggle too… It is the Saturday Night Live’s ‘take off’ of the new ‘TSA Image Campaign’. I have written before about my issues with the scanner images in this post called: TSA […]

I wish they WOULD sack Michael O’Leary and replace him with a member of Cabin Crew!

September 14, 2010

I have a new hero… I have to say, I am a self proclaimed Michael O’Leary hater… He is undoubtedly a creative marketeer, but I think his marketing tactics would be better suited to something like sleazy PR for bottom-feeding celebrities than the airline industry. Still, I guess there’s only room for one Max Clifford, […]

Thromby Air – New Budget Airline ‘Lowest of The Low’

August 20, 2010

Okay, so this is something a bit light-hearted, and it certainly brightened up my day and made me chuckle… Actually that is an understatement, I had tears in my eyes from laughing so much!  I got an email today from someone called Richard E. Coli, who claimed to be the CEO of a new budget […]

Air New Zealand’s bare cheek when it comes to safety

January 27, 2010

I have a friend who has moved to New Zealand recently, and my attention has since been drawn to this video… I have to say, that as far as safety demonstration videos goes, it doesn’t fail to keep your eyes glued to the screen in a ‘surely not!‘ way…  Oh, and just in case you […]

Obese air passengers… Does size matter?

December 6, 2009

Ok, so I saw this in a pilot wife group today, and it made me chuckle-though it probably shouldn’t have, since it’s actually a safety issue and a serious concern in an emergency. Basically, the picture is rumoured to have been taken by an American Airlines flight attendant who wanted to use the picture to […]

Pam Ann Vs Virgin Atlantic

March 16, 2009

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I just found something that made me laugh sooooo hard that I almost electrocuted myself as I sprayed my laptop with the glass of water I had been drinking! Remember this post where I bitched about the new Virgin ad?  FYI here is the offending advert (please watch it if you’ve not yet seen […]

Want to spend a penny? Ryanair will charge you a pound!

February 27, 2009

Oh my goodness! I HAD to blog. I just read the most insane news story on Yahoo news.  Budget airline, Ryaniair’s Chief Excecutive Michael O’Leary told BBC television on Friday: “One thing we have looked at in the past and are looking at again is the possibility of maybe putting a coin slot on the […]

Hands off my Pilot, HO!

February 23, 2009

UGH!  I NEED TO VENT! Bf just rang to say goodnight… Some hostie (from a different UK airline also staying in the same hotel as his crew are), who will here on in be referred to as: ‘the cheap ho’ just tried it on with him… So, naturally, he told her about me and Baby, as a […]

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 […]

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 […]
