British Airline Crew's Drunk & Obnoxious Quasi-Orgy Disrupts Passengers! Surprise!

airline crew drunken kissing orgy flight shenanigans disruption british airways soul plane

Oh noes!

Whether it's crying babies, chronic farters, or Samuel L. Jackson's deadly snakes, we all know what it feels like to be antagonized aboard a long flight!

Even worse for a cabin full of British Airways passengers flying from London to Washington last month, the annoying persons were airline employees!

It's true!

Apparently several off-duty flight attendants got tipsy in first class, made-out with and petted each other, knocked into bewildered onlookers, and were generally VERY disruptive!

One unhappy passenger said:

Airlines May Loosen Ban On Electronics In Flight!

Filed under: Tech Talk

Airplane Interior

“At this time, please turn off all portable electronics” may SOON be a phrase of the past!!

Looks like the government is taking baby steps in getting airlines to allow passengers to use their favorite electronic gadgets for the WHOLE flight…even during takeoffs AND landings!

About time!!!

The Federal Aviation Administration is currently in talks to see if they can find out practical (and safe) ways to test the use of devices like tablets, e-readers and music players during critical flight moments.

The tricky part? Not all electronic devices have the same amount of power, making testing difficult. Also, with technology quickly changing, different generations of devices would EACH have to be tested and approved.

…that makes for a LOT of devices!

Peanuts Protected By Law

Peanuts

Peanuts have more rights than some living creatures.

Despite the Department of Public Transportations murmurings of a possible peanut ban on airplanes to avoid bothering those with severe allergic reactions, a 12-year-old law blocks the agency from tampering with peanut policy without more scientific study.

The Department of Public Transportation said in a statement:

"The Department is prohibited by law from restricting the serving of peanuts aboard aircraft unless a peer-reviewed study determines that serving of peanuts causes severe reactions among airline passengers. There has been no such peer-reviewed study, so we declined to take action at this time."

The government proposed the ban last June and asked the public to give their opinions on the possible ban on the Public Transportation's website.

Many peanut allergy sufferers supported the ban, but the government decided to honor the existing law and has put any peanut objections on the back burner for now.

Fortunately for those suffering from severe peanut allergies, some carriers have developed their own policies to protect allergic passengers.

Some flights no longer serve peanuts and even create peanut-free buffer zones, so if you're worried about an allergic reaction, make sure to do the proper research before hopping on your next flight!

Carry-On Luggage Costing Tax Payers $260 Million A Year!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TruePolitik

Carry-on baggage cost

This is certainly not helping the national debt go down.

U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, told Congress last week carry-on luggage is costing the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) some $260 million every year.

She says that luggage fees have scared off more passengers from checking their bags and instead load more into their carry-on, which means more items for Transportation Security Administration officers to inspect at security checkpoints.

That's a bummer, so what is the head of Homeland Security suggesting? Charging us more to fly of course!

After being asked whether taxpayers should have to pick up these security fees or make airlines use some of their MASSIVE profits to offset the cost on the people, Napolitino suggested a surcharge of up to $5 on each ticket.

The new security fee, she says, would bring her department about $600 million a year.

Typical. Let's make the PEOPLE pay for the airline companies' cost to run THEIR business!

They probably can't afford it anyway, they only make an estimated $5 billion a year. Ha!

Question Janet…why are we footing the bill for a billion dollar business to run effectively?

Thoughts???
