BA flight goes up in smoke

 

It seems it isn’t only the Air France jets we have to worry about these days……maybe BA should be offering danger money for flying with them instead of demanding staff take pay cuts? Or was it just that the captain fancied a sly fag before take off? Hundreds of people aboard the British Airways jet were evacuated just before take-off after reports of smoke in the cabin. We reported smoke on an Al Jazeera flight last week and the air steward just winked……..

The Heathrow-bound Boeing 747 had pushed back from the departure gate at Phoenix Airport , US, when the fumes were seen.The pilot promptly decided to evacuate all 298 passengers on board using the emergency slides.

Wheeheee! What a rush- getting to use the emergency slides when there isn’t really an emergency!! Come on now, hands up who really wants to try that? The brother in law of a friend of mine was training to be a Kuwait Airways steward some years ago….tempted beyond description, young A**** couldn’t resist pushing some button to let the slides go when the plane was on the ground and they were practising ( so the story goes). He got into big trouble…and is, by the way, no longer working for Kuwait Airways …….
