More Reasons Not To Fly

No need for alarm but has anyone seen a wee tarantula?

No need for alarm but has anyone seen a wee tarantula?

OMG, what is going on people?  A British Airways flight was cancelled after a passenger spied a tarantula crawling between his legs and in New York a mouse grounded a flight at JKF after messing with the pilot. Has the world gone friggin mad? The British Airways flight had just landed in Edinburgh when the man raised the alarm after some big, hairy 8 legged creature  wandered up his leg. A specialist fumigator (is there such a beast?) was sent in for the kill. Meanwhile across the Atlantic a mouse was behind the delay of a Delta Airline plane headed to Heathrow . Seems the pilot refused to take off  due to fears the little bugger could have bitten through wiring. Passengers had to wait three hours for a rodent free plane to arrive. Can I have the window seat?

Friggin Baggage Handlers

Do you think they will notice ?

Do you think they will notice ?

Whoops, two baggage handlers have been arrested at Heathrow airport after they failed to tell anyone they had crashed into the side of a British Airways Airbus with their truck . Hello !!! When you hit an airplane ,which is about to take hundreds of people into the air without a friggin safety net, tell someone people. Reason? Because that could be me on that friggin jet and that could be some bad actor re-enacting me on a future Air Crash Investigations episode. The Friggin Loon does not, and I repeat, does not want to be on ACI OK! So yay, they were arrested. The Airbus A321 was hit in the fuselage by an electric baggage truck at Heathrow but the handlers didn’t bother to tell anyone, despite there being obvious visible damage. Fortunately it was spotted by ground staff as the plane was waiting to taxi to the runway. One concerned British Airways staff said ‘For all they knew the plane could have suffered fuselage damage, causing it to fall apart mid-air.'(oh great!). The plane was immediately removed from service and the passengers thrown back into the terminal  to wait for another flight. British Airways have also officially confirmed that “Two members of our ground staff based at Heathrow were arrested following an incident where one of our aircraft was damaged.” It is believed both have been released on bail.
