The craziest things seen on a plane
Wild animals under your seat, stray chickens, and crying babies. On Facebook, we asked you about the craziest things you have experienced during a flight. We enjoyed reading all of your stories! Here is a compilation of the weirdest, funniest, and most unbelievable:
Marco: "During a domestic flight in Nepal the aisle was full of bags of rice and beer cans... and a couple of chickens stood in a cage next to us on the seat."
Esther: "On a flight from Miami to Aruba with Antillean Airlines, a parrot flew back and forth through the cabin. We just ducked when it flew low..."
Anouk: "During my flight from Ambon to Jakarta, I was accompanied by a sloth under the seat in front of me. You don't want to know what kind of noise those animals make."
Riccardo: "On a domestic flight with Uzbekistan Airways, there were no safety belts, but you could hold on to a melon. Everyone had to put one on their lap because no more could fit in the cargo hold..."
Louise: "Sitting on the plane after a cool trip with a friend to South Africa. We had to share three seats with a man. Asked if I could use the seat in the middle to get a better night's sleep and just before I fell asleep, I suddenly feel that he is starting to massage my foot... And did it again 3 times. Then walking out of the plane, I see him leave with a wife and three children!"
Peter: "No toilet on a 4.5-hour charter flight... An empty bottle of coke gave necessary relief... Rogue peeing was not allowed."
Janine: "I celebrated my 25th birthday on a plane. It was announced and everybody sang for me, afterwards, my group received treats. It’s a special memory."
Kimberly: "On a flight back from Egypt, a woman next to us has puked over us just after taking off (and then twice more)! So for more than 5 hours, I sat in dirty clothes with a mixture of puke and coffee smells. I can still smell it now... "
Lisa: "Once half of the seats were blocked off during a flight. It turned out that horses were being transported."
