I had on one US carrier, (either UA or AA, don't remember) where they let two kids (before departure) taking the pilot's seat with the microphone, yelling mom! See! I'm a a pilot! mom! mom!...
All the pax were chuckling.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

When I was a young lad in Yeshivah, there were rumors about a certain Bochur who did this as a matter of habit (he didn't get off before the door closed ;) )
Not just rumors... I know him. After 9/11 the FBI came looking for him and so did the news reporters.

Was in Israel, flight on BA TLV-LHR-JFK for 9/12 got cancelled.
Got rescheduled on 9/16 into EWR, upgraded to E+. 8+ hour drive to CH.
LHR was a complete chaotic mess.
Will never forget 9/11/01

I was in classroom, my rabbi left the class to see what's going on, and we all ran to the window to look at the smoke, after a few minutes he came back and when he saw the kids are not sitting on their places and are at the widow he came with his belt and stated smaking everyone who was not sitting on his place  :o

Give him a break, he didn't realize at the time that everyone's gonna remember that moment the rest of their lifetime.

I still ignore him every time he is telling me hello. You missed out, you didn't learn in V'yoel Moshe. I was about 9 years then.
