Attendant & Pilot Stories

I unintentionally started something in 2011 when I posted some gross photos of hotel filth to my Facebook page. The response was revulsion, but Car Crash kind of revulsion. People couldn’t look away. So, the next time I saw something – and it didn’t take long – I posted it. Same response. And then… people started […]

My fiancé and I decided to get married someplace far away, with the destination known by few, because his ex-wife was on a continuous two-year rampage of harassment, phone calls, texting, bad-mouthing to his children, kicking in the back of his company vehicle… and the list goes on.

I’m a former flight attendant, and I was working a JFK to DFW trip. A woman from a French-speaking country (heard her speaking on her cell phone) enters the plane, and then plunks herself into a first class seat. I thought nothing of it.

I fly about 7 times a year for business and pleasure, and never gave much thought to my flight attendant. Some are better or more personable than others, but I’ve never experienced a flat-out “bad” one – until my most recent flight.

Flights From Hell received the following correspondence from David Howe. In it Mr. Howe states that a US Airways flight attendant erroneously ordered him to shut off his GPS receiver.

Vomit on the back of the seat (1B)… Do you people take any pride in what you do? From my seat (2B) I could see L., our flight attendant in first class, having a gab session while the first class customers were thirsty. The attendants ate, drank and then took care of us…

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. […]

Dear Sir, As a frequent BA flyer (Gold Card # ______), I have finally gotten to the point of writing a letter to say how sick to death […]
