6020: Flight Patterns Of Stupidity.
In-flight nonsense in a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• The Los Angeles Times reported airlines are seeking added money by placing more advertising in planes, from overhead bins to barfbags. “It’s the next thing,” said an aviation consultant. “I could picture an airplane looking like a NASCAR,” vehicle loaded with sponsors’ logos. “It’s not out of the question that we may one day see a Target logo on the nose.” Maybe flight attendants could also double as Amway-Quixtar salespeople. Although somebody should tell the airlines an easier way to increase revenue is to improve their own service offerings.
• A JetBlue flight attendant has been accused of sexually harassing a passenger, making all sorts of lewd and obscene advances during a flight. The airline has already fired the man, while the female passenger is pursuing legal action. The woman claims the horny flight attendant displayed photos of his penis from his cell phone. Maybe the airline should change its tagline from “Happy Jetting” to “Happy Jutting.”
