8. Okay, turns out Lucy is a real jerk
My uncle worked for a major airline and was told a famous story about how a flight attendant could not speak to Lucille Ball and had to ask her assistant what Ball would want to drink. Another story was that a flight attendant accidentally dropped a glass of water on Ball. Lucille kept saying it was ok, and asked for another glass of water. When the attendant came back with it, Lucille threw it right back saying “How do you like it?”
Not my story, but a friend who is long haul.
It was lights out over half way into the flight. You know, most people are trying to sleep. Some reading etc. There’s a young couple sitting on the side (recently engaged it would turn out) and a middle-aged man sitting a row back but in the middle row of seats. Both the girl and the solo dude are isle seats. My friend remembers walking past the couple, both asleep.
At some point there’s a commotion and screaming in the dark. Attendants quickly head over to find the girl crying and that her fiancee had just dropped the solo guy in the isle. (still conscious).
After calming everyone down, it turned out the solo guy had got up and masturbated into the girls hair while she slept. Fiancee wakes, sees the jizz in her hair, guy still standing beside her. Does what any guy would do.
The flight girls had to clean her up and my friend had the foresight to take a sample. Male crew, including the captain had to diffuse the situation with the men. I think first protocol is to separate anyone violent. Because the Captain asked crew and nearby passengers who saw the punch. The solo guy was also angry and demanding charges. No one saw anything, on account of everyone had seem semen in this girls hair and working out that this guy is a fucker.
Solo guy became quite agitated and people start working out he was drunk, not dazed. He ends up pushing a male attendant whose trying to calm him. Not sure if that one incident was all it took for him to be restrained, but that’s exactly what happened.
The way I understand it, he was cuffed for the remainder of the flight, and the first people in or out of the door upon landing were cops.
Not a flight attendant but my father worked for an airline for over 30 years and shared this story with me based on one of his colleagues’ experiences. On a flight from JFK to Heathrow post 9/11, while the plane was about 4th or 5th in line for take-off an American lady demanded to be let off the plane. The attendant naturally refused since the doors were closed and they were almost at the runway. The lady went nuts and called 911 from her cellphone and said she was an American citizen being held against her will on a foreign airline and they were about to take off and she was going to be taken to another country. In about 3-4 minutes police and FBI vans surrounded the plane, pulled her out and grounded the flight pending further investigation. In the end she was just a nutjob who ruined everyone’s flight.
TLDR: crazy american lady calls 911 before take off, says she is being kidnapped, feds surround plane, flight gets canceled.
