Fun? During a flight? Impossible surely?
In case you thought that all commercial aeroplanes were seething, tension-filled iron sky-sausages, following the JetBlue flight attendant meltdown story the other day, here’s proof that it just isn’t true.
Some rare airborne jollity broke out during this flight from Tel Aviv to Frankfurt recently, with the trolley dolly being at the centre of a mass, good-natured pillow fight. Obviously, if the flight had been in American airspace, the security services would have been on red alert and the captain would have been forced to fill the cabin with sleeping gas.
Of course, if it was a Ryanair flight, there wouldn’t be any pillows to start a fight with – just scrunched-up scratchcards; and passengers wouldn’t have been allowed off at the end of the flight until they’d calmed down, tidied the mess up and paid an arbitrary ‘fun tax’ of forty fucking quid.
