January Crazy Travel Roundup

January Crazy Travel Roundup

I don’t think that 2018 is going to disappoint, especially when it comes to crazy travel.

 

Impatient man on long flight walks on wing of plane after escaping through emergency exit

For most of us, our flights end in Orlando and that means lots of kids and lots of carry-on luggage. I understand the frustration of not being able to get off the plane quickly. I’m not looking to visit a theme park, I’m looking to visit my bed. That being said, opening the emergency exit is going to result in a bad afternoon for you.

Snakes on a plane? Nope, poop on a plane

An adult male smeared the excrement in a couple of bathrooms, and took off his shirt and tried to stuff it in a toilet. He was cooperative with the flight crew and was seated when the flight landed in Anchorage.

The passenger was met by FBI agents and Airport Police at the plane and was interviewed by both agencies. Airport Police say he was taken to a hospital for a psych evaluation.

The sullied Boeing 777 was grounded overnight for maintenance.

No charges were filed. LINK

No charges were filed, seriously? if you want to fingerpaint like that, then you need to be behind bars, or at least in a padded room.

MARRIOTT HOTEL SUED You Kicked Me Out …JUST BECAUSE I WASN’T A SWINGER!

Can’t say we’ve heard this before — a woman is suing Marriott for allegedly kicking her out of one of their hotels ’cause she was a non-swinger on a swingers’ floor … yup.

Hale Lewis says she booked a 3-day stay at a Marriott in Atlanta last year for a New Year’s Eve party, and before she knew it … she claims she was hauled out in cuffs because of a mix-up over the floor she was on … which was apparently restricted to swingers. LINK

File this under…… “Things this never happen to me”. I’m a bit skeptical about this one. The police have better things to do than handcuff a bunch of innocent people, especially non-swingers, imagine the paperwork and all those handcuffs.

Cruel Couple Checks Cat in Luggage

I was alerted to this one by Forever Young, But Growing Old. As cruel as it sounds I’ve often said, “Lock your significant other and your dog in the trunk of your car. Open your trunk an hour later, and see which one is happy to see you”. Looking to save a few dollars by stuffing your pet in checked baggage? More than likely it won’t work. Stay tuned for my next podcast, guaranteed to include my cat/air travel story. Yes, Florida was mentioned. LINK

Drunk’ British Airways pilot is hauled off Gatwick flight

Once again drinking and flying make the news. This time, the one with the booze was piloting the plane. LINK

Angry Buzz Aldrin Misses Delta Flight

It’s not entirely clear what happened, but at 9:20AM he’s still at the check-in counter for his 9:25AM flight. When he’s told that he’ll be rebooked on the next flight he isn’t happy at all, and gets up from his wheelchair to approach the Delta employees.

We’re not sure what exactly caused this, though Buzz tells the Delta employees that “I’m telling you guys, you’re going to be in a little bit of trouble, because we’ve been sitting here now 20 minutes for somebody to come and fix a two minute problem.” We don’t know what that two minute problem was. LINK

In the Brian Regan clip above the punch line is, “I Walked on the Moon”. If you managed to control some sort of a rocket-fueled aluminum tube 200,000+ miles, and then walked on the moon, there’s no reason that your 700-mile flight shouldn’t be completed in a timely manner.

Jet grounds two senior pilots fighting in cockpit of London-Mumbai flight

NEW DELHI: Jet Airways has grounded two of its senior commanders for fighting inside the cockpit of a London-Mumbai flight on January 1.
The commander flying as co-pilot allegedly slapped the lady commander mid-flight after which she left the cockpit in tears.

After great persuation, the lady pilot went back to the cockpit but reportedly came out in a huff shortly afterwards. This time, a frightened cabin crew, fearing for everyone’s safety, requested her to go back to the controls and operate the flight to its destination. Luckily, the plane landed safely. LINK

Nothing better than a fistfight to welcome in 2018, but you can’t slap a woman. Normally the cockpit door is barred to protect the pilots, this time it should’ve been barred to protect the passengers.

Flight from Denver to Hawaii diverted after toilet troubles on plane

SAN FRANCISCO — Toilet troubles caused a United Airlines flight from Denver to Hawaii full of passengers to divert back to land when they were halfway over the Pacific Ocean.

The issue doubled the flight time and cut passengers’ vacations short.

“Everyone was disgusted,” passenger Rich Anderson said. “We were probably three hours from Hawaii and they announced that the toilets were all full,” Kristin Anderson said. Link

Two poop stories in the same month, is this the trend for 2018? It’s rare that I use the plane’s lavatory, but these folks filled the tanks up in a matter of hours. What’s even more crappy is that they had to turn the plane around.

In case you haven’t had enough, here’s a few more.
