Simon is a radio producer and broadcaster from London who now resides in Sydney. He has been the station voice for BBC Worldwide.
We reminisce on the fun that operators used to have on the night shift whilst working for an airline call centre.And as if most vegetarians weren't annoying enough already... we now have to endure "fake vegetarians" while we fly.
Strange human behaviours, jetlag and sleepwalking are all discussed in this episode
Flying prawn tails across the First-Class cabin, spilling red wine over a high value customer and 300 economy class meals ruined just after take-off. These are just some of the first day blunders revealed in today's episode.Plus - there are all sorts of reasons that a piece of checked luggage might be offloaded before departure... and a vibrating bag though? Indeed - so if it wasn't a toothbrush going off inside, what was it that caused our baggage handler to turn bright red with embarrassment?
We get into cars pretty much every day and put our seatbelts on without even thinking, but why when travelling by air do we act like it's more of a hinderance to wear one?And Uniforms - not everyone is the same age, height or body structure, but airline uniforms need to be comfortable, durable and most importantly represent an airline's brand. Wearing a uniform takes out the stress of what to wear but what happens when airline crew have a uniform malfunction right at the start of their shift?
