Stewed Steward

January 23, 2012

in Attendant & Pilot Stories

In 1999 I flew from Honolulu to Sydney. We flew with Qantas Airlines. To be honest I rather like flying with Qantas. However the steward we had on this flight was a bit special. We didn’t notice anything in the beginning, but as they served beverages we noticed everyone got their drinks before we did. The reason was because our steward was incredibly slow.

This happened to us again while the food was served. So I decided to have a really good look at this chap. I noticed that his nose was very red, and he was smiling more than normal. Also he was serving very slowly and talking too much. Yes folks, he had a little too much to drink himself. He was actually drunk during the flight, and another steward had to step in for him and make excuses for him. We landed nicely, but I wouldn’t pay any attention to him if anything outside the normal had happened.

It’s nice to fly, but free alcoholic drinks for passengers does not mean that the cabin crew can have the dream job and drink them as well.

Hi there it’s me, I am also visiting this web page regularly, this site is truly good and the people are actually sharing pleasant thoughts.

This is not a website for sharing pleasant thoughts. Maybe you’re at the wrong website.

Ha! That was just spam mail Hack. I was about to delete it when your comment popped up which adds a bit of humor. I decided to just remove the link that was posted with the spam.

Is this really a flight from hell? To me, it looks like something that would have happened on any other flight. Next time, when you are posting something about a flight from hell, do something that is actually bad (i.e. someone with air sickness throws up on you, the flight attendant yells at passengers, plane crashes) Thanks.
