For nearly 10 years I worked for a major airline, and while the pay was crap, the flight bennies alone made it ll worth while – MOST of the time.
I had one guy demand that I personally come to the airport and find his bags.
At 10 PM local time (West coast).
He was at the Memphis airport.
Accents can make life interesting. It took context to realize that my caller was NOT traveling intergalactically, but instead was flying from Shreveport to Venice Italy (He called it Venus)
The lady who couldn’t fly unless we changed her conformation number – that had 3 6’s in it.
There are plenty more, but these are the ones that I remember off the top of my head…
