Read a long time ago in the Hamodia from the guy who does the KSML in ZRH, that he had approached SwissAir (predecessor to SWISS), that he is willing to give a lecture to the FA about the Jewish pax. They said, why do they need it, they have such a % of Muslims, % of this etc. and only a small % of Jews, so why the need of a special class on this matter. He said, let me challenge the FAs to a simple question, and he asks them, whats the flight number to NY? nobody knows, DEL? nobody, BOM? nobody, PVG? again, quiet. Then he pops the million dollar Q, "and whats the flight # to TLV? whoooooo, everyone says LX 256/257.... he asks why does everyone knows this number by heart, when all others no-one knows? they answer him, that when Swiss wants to punish a crew member, they assign them on this route......
IIRC This guy gives lectures to companies on Jewish/frum  culture.

I was on my way from FLL to JFK and we had to circle for about an hour because Air Force One was either taking off or landing (dont remember exactly)
The pilot was really dumb on that flight, he gets on and says "sorry we have to circle bec of AFO. We only have about an hour left of fuel, but we should be ok"
 
You should have seen everyones faces when he said that!
Had a similar story where captain got on and announced that there was inclement weather (this was into Cleveland) so we will have to circle and possibly divert to PIT but we still have one hour worth of fuel... After about 30 minutes in the air he gets on and says that one plane has already landed and we will be giving it a shot...

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

An Israeli cuts the line and sticks it to you, a Chinese at least tries to hide it.
You've clearly never had a Chinese slide in underneath you in to a subway seat. Every. Damn. Day.
You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. - Dr. Seuss

When I flew on LY (when? Never, and hope never), I went into the galley and started to play around, packing out all the containers, and the FA run over, 'stop, get out of here, you're not allowed etc', I answered, I was greeted here onboard lאלעל, הכי בבית בעולם' and this is what I do in my home......

If you have a good friend that you want to sit next to?

Not so crazy.
I got upgraded while flying with a friend on AA LAX - MIA lie flat. So I took it and offered him half way the seat but he wanted to stay in his exit seat! (prob bec he knew I was offering just to be nice :))

I don't get it  :-[  ???
It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.
