Flying These Days
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 as we should an uneventful flight. So, sit back, relax and…Oh My God!”
Some moments later, the captain came back on the intercom:
“Ladies and gentlemen, I’m sorry I scared you. While I was talking a flight attendant spilled coffee on my lap. You should see the front of my pants.”
From the back of the plane an Irish passenger yelled, “For the love of God, you should see the back of mine.”
