Flying nude


"Would you like another drink sir?" I was flying Business Class and it was the hostess. As one fellow put it, the booze was running like a river. One could drink oneself into oblivion. The majority know when to stop and tend to behave civilly. Then there is the exception. In early April 2007, a Continental jet en route from Newark, New Jersey, to Japan called air traffic control advising them of an unscheduled stop at Anchorage, Alaska. This type of stop is mighty expensive and the captain's decision to land in such cases is thoroughly examined by the company bosses.

I was flying Business Class and it was the hostess. As one fellow put it, the booze was running like a river. One could drink oneself into oblivion. The majority know when to stop and tend to behave civilly. Then there is the exception.

In early April 2007, a Continental jet en route from Newark, New Jersey, to Japan called air traffic control advising them of an unscheduled stop at Anchorage, Alaska. This type of stop is mighty expensive and the captain's decision to land in such cases is thoroughly examined by the company bosses.

The focus of the captain's report was a nude woman.

Why couldn't they cover her and continue with the flight?

In fact, the cabin crew did their best to keep her covered but the lady, who had taken off her clothes, pushed away the blankets that were placed on her.

This lady was seated in Business Class and apparently had consumed enough alcohol to cause her to urinate where she was sitting. She insisted on removing her wet clothing, as well as any that was dry. She then lay down in the aisle of the aircraft completely nude.

While one of the attendants was trying to keep her covered she noticed that the lady had lost her dentures. Her bottom dentures were found in the seat behind and the upper teeth were found between two seat cushions.

The captain attempted - without success - to determine through MedLink, an in-flight medical assistance system, whether his passenger was affected by medication, intoxicated, on drugs or just plain nuts.

The cabin crew hustled up a pair of pyjamas and after a short struggle finally managed to get them on her.

As soon as she was free of their grasp she bolted for the cockpit door.

The captain made the decision to abort the flight and put this lady off in Anchorage where she was toted off to jail with half a set of teeth, dressed in pyjamas and a blanket wrapped around her.

The other Business Class passengers were peed off to say the least. They not only lost their entertainment, but their flight was delayed by this unscheduled landing.
