  1. I like the thought of a celebrity who spends time worrying about whether they can take their mashed potatoes and gravy through TSA.

  2. I don’t know about dating flight attendants, but hooking up with them isn’t hard. In my better days, I’ve done at the US3, virgin, 2 of the ME3, Cathay, Singapore, and a few weird random regional carriers in Asia. It wasn’t hard.

  3. @Hal, “it wasn’t hard”. I am sure they were very disappointed that it wasn’t hard

  4. Lol at least for the gay men FA. Never have not met one that was not a whore. They typically like doing the nastiest stuff to. Maybe because they have traveled so much and have experienced many kinds of men. So for me personally I would never date one becusse of this.

  5. Many years ago, I dated a guy who was an American Airlines flight attendant who worked Caribbean, European and South American flights. We didn’t experience any real issues with being able to get together every week, but I saw enough red flags in our short time together to tell me he had other men in every far-flung destination he flew and called it quits.
