5 crazy things airlines must have on a plane

5 crazy things airlines must have on a plane

When I do long haul flights, I am thankful there is a clean toilet close to landing time! And here she is worried about not having a shower 🙂

This video is meant to be satirical but in my opinion it is yet another example that points out the vast difference between the haves and the have nots. Taking a cue from the tone of the ad, here are my 5 crazy things airlines must have on a plane

  1. Internet Connection Free Internet Connection – Now if airlines wanted real sticky loyalty, here is what they should be looking to give; free internet to everyone aboard. I mean everyone. First class to cattle err economy class
  2. Selfie Stations – What use is free internet if you can’t take tonnes of pictures and post on social media. Right? Every airplane should have a selfie station with cool props like the pilot’s cap, stewardess hat etc. etc.
  3. Champagne – Every single passenger must be given champagne. Don’t the airlines tell us that they value us and all that? So a tall flute of bubbly is how you welcome guests aboard!
  4. PlayPen – Now this is for the harried mothers. You’ve handed her a glass to relax herself and before she knows it the feisty toddler has struck it out on to the floor. Get them kids on a playpen with toys, some cartoons, maybe a bit of sand. The mothers can actually rest while those nannies watch over the kids
  5. Jacuzzi – A long haul flight means sore aching limbs. A quick dip in the jacuzzi would be the perfect solution. No?

    Some wish list I would be happy even if one of them comes true.. 🙂

    … BTW an airline in Europe is planning to put passengers in Cargo bin without any windows for cheap tickets… there goes the Jacuzzi 😛

      Hehe… wishful thinking Prasad… Yes cargo seats waala toh too much ho gaya. Economically, it probably makes sense but I am worried corporates would start sending employees there to save money!

    Just Like Jennifer Aniston said, A Bar and Spa is what I’d love on a plane too.

    I love the emirates ad. It’s quirky in its own way.

    Nice one, Anks!
    I’ve been lucky to fly the A380 first class from London to Dubai and it was simply awesome; Truth be told, I was upgraded because i flew on Christmas day and they were almost empty.
    But over the 8 hour flight, it was fabulous!
    But yes, I get the satire – you should write more 🙂

    • Reply Ankita December 11, 2015 at 10:01 am

      Ooh… that is awesome…. would have been easier for the crew to serve only one class so they must have sent everyone there 😛

      Thank you for liking it… I am always scared of humor falling flat! and to get appreciation from you… cherry on the cake!

  • Reply Suman Kher December 10, 2015 at 7:41 pm

    He he! All amenities for all passengers is a bit of a stretch!! But yeah! Business and first class is a bit too pampered. Spouse takes it for granted now!

    • Reply Ankita December 11, 2015 at 9:58 am

      Can imagine! lucky him I must say…

  • Reply U K December 10, 2015 at 7:28 pm

    I loved this.. You should write more of these sides. You have a knack for subtle humorous writing.

    • Reply Ankita December 18, 2015 at 8:05 am

      🙂 will surely attempt it.. my writing has been called dry so it is good that this new style is being appreciated… thanks UK!

    Playpen would be a great thing. Handling kids on plane might turn out to be a nightmare, when the fellow passengers give those looks.

    Lol at Champenge. They charge thrice the actual price for a coke. Let then first come to normal market value. 😛
    I think the first class guys get free champenge and all those free eminities.

    Hehe. Jacuzzi! Leg space is a growing problem with inrreasing passengers and cramped airplanes. While we are at it, a spa treatment for the feet would be a great addition too. 😛

    Well written post. 🙂

      That was quick AK… A spa treatment sounds wonderful… like those automated massagers in malls and airports!
