Funniest thing you've done or said on a plane

I’m sure many of you would have said or done a ridiculous thing especially when you were a kid, so let’s talk about them!

My funniest thing was: Once I was in an Air India B747-400 and we were flying over the Atlantic Ocean. My mom was explaining about how smoke comes from the engines, and that’s when I said, “Is the smoke the blue thing down there?” (Also, I didn’t use proper grammar and pronunciation) and pointed at the ocean. I was 6 years old back then. I remember this just because my mom took a video.

Another one: That same year, on the same trip in the USA, we were landing at Orlando, and that was the first time I had ever seen the spoilers coming up. I thought the plane would BREAK!!! And I cried like anything.

Probably didn’t want to leave the airplane, but we had to, then I didn’t want to leave the airport (photography reasons) so, Yeah not ridiculous but I had to end up getting off the plane.

Recently a friend of mine flew from Cyprus to Lebanon in a small aircraft. It was part of his training, and he forgot to take his passport. He talked to the atc enroute and they laughed and told him to come back. It was a very hilarious moment😂😂🤣

For the funniest thing I have said in aircraft, I remembered when I was 8, I took a AirAsia flight to Singapore. It was my very first experience to overseas. I still remember when my plane landed at Changi, I shouted “Welcome to Changi!, Ladies and Gentlemen! Enjoy your holiday!” (Replacing the purser Announcement ahahahahah) and everyone was looking at me and my mom and my auntie was like… It was the most embarrassing thing I’ve ever done in my whole life 😂😂


For the funniest thing I have ever done, I remembered last week when I took the A350 Flight, I was really excited with the new PTV (especially the console). I did curious about one button (Marked as a Person). Because I was curious, I touched that button. Not long after a FA came to me after she noticed the call. Then I just realize that the Button’s function is for calling FAs. During mid flight, I accidentally touched the button and the same FA came to me again 😂😂😂. I had to say Sorry for this incident. Some people around me was also looking on me… Glad that she didn’t mad on me and forced me to leave the aircraft 😂😂

When I was 5, onboard a Monarch A321 I shouted to my Father “Dad, the plane isn’t moving, were gonna die” Because mid flight the plane doesn’t feel like it is moving. I remember everyone around us were laughing and my Father went red. So embarrassing…

When I was 4-5 years old, I shouted to the PTU onboard an A320. I thought the PTU was really a dog. 😂😂
I remember shouting something like this:
“Dog be quiet already! The flight attendants will kick you out if you are not quiet!” 😂😂

Not very embarrassing or funny, but when I was like… idk… really small, I thought that the seats of planes were facing backwards, because I noticed that when we pushbacked, we went in reverse 😂.
I know I was really stupid.

When I was younger, we flew into the Middle East (Dubai) I was young and didn’t really understand all about terrorism and the conflicts in the Middle East.

I was sat on the aircraft, brainwashed by the news that every plane was going to be hijacked and blown up…The purser gave the command to ‘arm doors’…I had a panic attack thinking the cabin crew were going to get guns and ARM! The door, I passed out and was taken off the plane by ambulance crews…we missed our flight 😂
