Passengers kicked off plane for complaining about 'flirty' flight attendant


Two passengers were kicked off a Saudi Arabian Airlines flight when they complained that a stewardess was being "flirty".

The male travellers were escorted off the plane, which was set to depart from Riyadh to Jeddah, Al Arabiya reports.

They said the flight attendant showed little respect for "traditional customs" and were removed from the plane after confronting the Arab hostess for "flirting" with a foreign passenger.

According to News.com.au, the flight attendant reportedly called the man "habibi", which means 'my love' or 'darling'.

She responded with anger at being confronted and the two men were escorted from the plane by security officials, causing a one-hour delay.

Police are investigating the incident.

Silliest ever passenger requests

Passengers kicked off plane for complaining about 'flirty' flight attendant

Yes, according to a survey of Virgin Atlantic's cabin crew, this is the most frequent mad request they get... seems that a worrying number of us have a lot to learn when it comes to the basic science of aviation...

Speaking about their weirdest passenger requests to Cabincrew.com, one steward said a passenger was worried about Heathrow Airport being so close to Windsor Castle as the plane was coming into London and asked if cabin crew could arrange for the planes not to fly over the castle in the future in case the Queen found it a nuisance. What a thoughtful flyer!

One Virgin Atlantic crew member was asked by a very famous celebrity, who pressed their call bell, to fix their hair. The flight attendant agreed to the unusual request and headed back to the galley to get a hair brush, comb and small can of hairspray. When he returned armed with the hairdressing equipment, the star roared with laughter and explained it was the AIR they wanted fixed and pointed overhead! The poor steward turned on the air vent and crept back to the galley. Cringe...

Er, we're hoping the passenger was't serious about this request. Another passenger asked: "Please can the captain stop the turbulence?". 

While flying into Nice in the South of France, one cheeky passenger asked a stewardess if the pilot could 'go a bit further down the coast so we can have a look at Monaco,' she told Cabincrew.com

We know they have some luxurious cabins but we would have liked to see the face of the flight attendant who was asked by a passenger where they could take a shower on a Virgin Atlantic flight.

A playroom, indeed. Sometimes, passengers appear to forget they're 30,000ft in the air.

Yes, someone really did ask a Virgin flight attendant this question. 

A stewardess told Cabincrew.com that a traveller asked her: 'Why am I getting such a poor mobile phone signal? This flight is going to be really long and I’ll be bored if I can’t use my smart phone.' Oh dear!

One steward told flight attendants' forum Cabincrew.com that one cheeky passenger asked them to get his blanket. He said: 'I once got asked mid flight if I could nip down into the hold and get a passenger his blanket out of his suitcase. After a full description of the bag I then explained this wasn't possible, to which he insisted he was going to go instead.'

This request may have been understandable if it came from a three-year old. But it didn't. It came from a fully grown adult.

This strange request came from a passenger on another Virgin flight... we're still trying to find out if said object was ever found....
