More things you don’t want to hear on an airplane

I find myself on the road again with another example of something you don’t really want to hear when you’re boarding an aircraft:

From a pilot clearly hurrying out of the plane: “Excuse me, I need to make sure this thing will fly.”

After my previous post of things you don’t want to hear on an airplane a couple people posted good comments, but I think this one is my favorite:

Kees posted: “Please fasten your seatbelts. We’re going to try to land.”

Things you don’t want to hear on an airplane

Work has me traveling more than usual right now and I’ve been spending quite a bit of time on a airplane. The following are some things I’ve heard on recent flights that didn’t exactly fill me with confidence:

Overheard between two flight attendants while boarding: “Well, so much for an on-time departure.”

Over the intercom before takeoff: “We’re going to have to ask everyone to close the shades on your windows to help keep it from getting too hot. We’re going to be without air conditioning for a while.”

A mother in the seat in front of me talking to her young child: “Does your tummy feel better since you had that pizza?”

If you’ve heard something you didn’t like on an airplane please leave a comment.

TSA List of Permitted and Prohibited Items

I’m getting ready to travel for business next week. Since I haven’t flown in about a year I figured I’d check the TSA website to see what I can and can’t carry on.

Well, the list is more detailed than I would have expected. It seems if I want to carry-on toothpaste it still needs to be in a 3 oz or less container, but at least I can carry on my Optimus Prime!

TSA List

Thank goodness. I hate to think of the little guy shivering in the cargo hold.
