TOPtravel writer PJ O’Rourke – who fronts British Airways’ latest TV ads – has come up with a three great examples of world aviation experiences.
While in Beirut he was waiting to take off but was told the flight had been delayed – due to mortar shells on the runway.
Secondly, a trip in the Gulf almost ended in disaster as the pilots started to ‘buzz’ goats and thirdly, while in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu, the pilot had to take evasive action when a man tried to steal his watch as the aircraft taxied to take-off.
These tales, told to a group of BA executives and aviation hacks, were finished off with the words “I like BA, nothing interesting has ever happened to me on them.”
