Flight Attendant Relates Some Crazy Requests

in Passenger Stories

As a flight attendant, I have heard some crazy requests. Recently on a transcontinental flight from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, I had a passenger press his call button. After approaching, he demanded that I find the “farter” and make them stop.

I advised him that it was not a full flight, and he was free to change seats if he chose to. My response of choice would have been, “I am sorry. I left my bloodhound and cork at home today.” He promptly fell asleep and never changed seats.

On another flight to Puerto Rico, a customer rang her call bell. After I approached her, she simply told me that her pillow was flat. I said, “Ma’am, you have to blow it up.”

“Well, do you have anything to do that with?”

“Ma’am, take a deep breath and blow.”

She looked at me like I was crazy.

I had a passenger ask me for a can of tuna once, mid-flight at 35,000 ft. Well, they keep the job interesting if nothing else!

I usually just bring my own tuna with me on flights. Then again, it's a military aircraft and we occasionally try to bring stuff that stinks. Nowhere to go once you're airborne lol
