One Smart Flight Attendant...... Said to Be a True Story

A 50-something year old Muslim man arrived at his seat on a crowded flight and immediately didn't want the seat. The seat was next to an elderly white woman reading her Bible.


Disgusted, the Muslim man immediately summoned the flight attendant and demanded a new seat. The man said "I cannot sit here next to this infidel." The flight attendant said "Let me see if I can find another seat."


After checking, she returned and stated "There are no more seats in economy, but I will check with my Cabin Manager and see if there is something in first class."


About 10 minutes went by and the flight attendant returned and stated "Unfortunately she has confirmed that there are no more seats in economy, but there is one available seat in first class. It is our company policy to never move a person from economy to first class, but being that it would be incorrect of us to force a person to sit next to an UNPLEASANT person, my Manager has agreed to make the switch to first class."


Before the irate Muslim man could say anything, the attendant gestured to the elderly woman and said, "Therefore madam, if you would kindly gather your personal items, we would like to move you to the comfort of first class as we do not want you to sit next to an unpleasant person."


Passengers in the seats nearby began to applaud while some gave a standing ovation.


I say, can I get an Amen to that!


Feel free to pass this one to others!


Thanks Dan!

True story or not, the very notion that an airline was slap a mooselimb upside the head like that it de-lish-us.

I'm so sick of these sumbitches.

joeh said...

Amen! I hope it is a true story.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Curmudgeon, ain't that the best. That's how you handle one of them sumbitches.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Joeh, it was sent to me as a true story, so that's good enough for me.

Sandee said...

Now that's a smooth move. This flight attendant rocks.

Have a fabulous day Odie. ☺

Sandee said...

Oh and I have a new word now...sumbitches. Or even scumbitches. Just fits them doesn't it. ☺

They should have sat him next to the fat smelly bastard they always put next to me. Put the fat smelly bastard in the aisle seat, and his fat smelly wife in the window seat. Their three unruly kids in the next row.

Back row in front of the bulkhead. With the broken tray.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, she does rock.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, enjoy you new found love of the language.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

unknown, wow you've had some bad flights. I would wish that on this guy. I'm with you.

You know, if more people stopped taking crap from idiots (liberals, fascist Muslims, Nancy Pelosi), we'd get back a world where being polite was a virtue.

Proof said...

Not sure if it's a true story (but it ought to be!).

The bit about never upgrading to 1st as a co. policy seems a bit off. I generally fly economy and been upgraded to 1st. a number of times when there was a vacant seat in first (and I suspect they could sell another economy ticket).

edutcher said...

It does have the ring of truth.

cube said...

Amen! I love it whether it's true or not.

Too bad there wasn't a passenger with a pet pig on board ;-)

Scooney Adrift said...

Good story!

Brighid said...

Oh to be a little ol lady... oh wait...

Jon Dougery said...

Suck it, Allah!!!

Ron Russell said...

She had his number! Great one Odie! Sorry not been around lately, but having a rough time---surgery again on Nov. 7!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Euripides, that would be nice.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Proof, you've been able to fool some by passing yourself off as first class material.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

edutcher, we'll run with it.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Cube, bacon should be served.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Scooney, you show very good taste.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Brighid, old happens to the best of us.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Jon, put well.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Ron, get better Buddy. Mrs. Woodsterman has a date just like that the same day.
