When you Board an Aircraft on an International Flight, Do they Give you an Orchid BLossom?


Recommended Posts

Orchid blossoms are not all the same.

 

Some are purple, and some are not.

 

Here is a beautiful orchid blossom.

 

Not so easy to grow.

 

And, would you not rather have one of these to pin to your chest, boarding the aircraft, rather than one of those more plebeian blossoms which are, pretty much, a dime a dozen?

 

This is a true beauty.

 

What do you think?

 One airline used to do this but no longer does. What is your point in starting pointless threads? The non mentioned airline had been cautioned over this practice as a number of countries do not allow flowers to be brought into their country, due to a possible problem with pests.

My apologies.

 

I have not boarded an aircraft in very many years.

 

Is it still required that one remove one's shoes before check in?

Years ago, one of the main reasons I flew Thai Air from HK to Taipei was because:

 

a.  Wonderful service.

b.  We always got an orchid blossom.

 

I really appreciated it.

 

Thai Air had GREAT service.

 

If I could not fly Thai Air from HK to Taipei, then I waited until I could.

 

I wish I could return to those halcyon days, and fly Thai Air, again.

 

Maybe I am just too old to fly, these days.

depends on the airport mate. LAX security make you take your shoes and belts off and tell you to empty your pockets of everything. i said everything! i asked the brother what to do with the spare hundred i had in my jeans pocket and he let me hold it in my hand.

 

yes i know, wearing jeans on an aeroplane is a tad uncouth but i've never quite mastered the art of the three-piece suit ????

it is after check in. going through the security,  but don't worry you can put them back on if you so choose

if they have a body scanner, you can keep your clothes on,  just don't get an ******* during the scan they might think it's a weapon

All that happens before check-in?       I'd venture to suggest that that is b_ollocks....

Back in the day, about 40 years ago, all the stewardesses were high-class young women, extremely polite, and well educated, not to mention extremely solicitous to passengers' needs.

 

These days, just guessing, maybe you can tip for a lap dance?

 

I really do not know.

 

I plan to never fly again, unless it might be by parasail off a Phuket beach, for example.

In point of fact:

 

There is very little doubt that most guys here, who are not my age, have not even an inkling of what it was like to fly... pre-1970.

 

It was Great!

 

Now, if you wish to get the same class of service, then you need to own your own plane, or lease one.

 

Even then, the experience is still not the same.

How could you know?  You said that you haven't been on a plane for "very many [52?] years".
