Not that stuff like “common sense” is much of a concept to anyone who’d fall asleep at work, but if you’re going to nap on company time, the best place to do it probably isn’t a pressurized cabin that’s about to reach 30,000ft. One sleepy Alaska Airlines baggage handler, who fell asleep on the job, learned this life lesson the hard way when he awoke midair in the cargo hold. After banging on the roof until air marshals heard him, the LA-bound plane returned to Seattle.
If you’ve ever fantasized about dating a model, consider this: one or two of them might be a little entitled. A European model on a Las Vegas-to-Frankfurt flight had, to nobody’s surprise, a “comfort” animal on the plane with her. What did surprise some passengers was her reaction when flight attendants told her the cat would need to ride in the lavatory. The woman slapped the flight attendant, threw a paper cup, and yelled that she was in the mafia and was going to take the plane down. Two F16s escorted the airliner to Denver, where the model and her feline friend were removed.
