News and notes from around the interweb:
- Rihanna, the human baggage tracking tool
- Is there really a pilot shortage, or are airlines just not paying enough?
- Diet Coke takes longer to serve than other drinks offered onboard because of the fizz (“air stewards claim that they could serve three passengers in the time it takes to pour one diet coke.”). It’s the one thing a Delta flight attendant hopes you don’t order.
- Amish Uber
- Should airlines keep making humorous safety videos?
Why not just hand over the whole can of Diet Coke?
And IMO, FAs should not have children. Nor should any other extreme travelers like management consultants. It’s plainly unfair to their own kids to see them so infrequently. Quit the job first and find something 9-to-5 prior to procreation.
Just give me a PreDeparture Drink. Is it really that hard to organize such a small request. Right now Virgin and Delta are the only two that can accomplish this relatively minor task.
This is why I never check luggage. Nice to know that KLM responds instantly to celebs but ignores regular customers.
Oh the little quirks of air travel and random facts, like the Diet Coke story. it’s funny what you never think of and ALL the things flight attendants know (and those things we will never know!).
There’s a trick with Diet Coke – squeeze some lime or lemon into the glass, then pour the DC. Cuts down the fizzing time significantly.
Now there’s a second use for limes on DL, after you squeeze one over your Biscoff to make the Key Lime Pie.
