    How to handle rude passengers

    This is a funny story
    An award should go to the Virgin Airlines gate attendant in ffice:smarttags" />lace w:st="on">Sydneylace> some months ago for being smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted with a passenger who probably deserved to fly as cargo.

    A crowded Virgin flight was cancelled after Virgin's 767s had been withdrawn from service. A single attendant was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travellers. Suddenly an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket down on the counter and said, "I HAVE to be on this flight and it HAS to be FIRST CLASS".

    The attendant replied, "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these people first, and I'm sure we'll be able to work something out."

    The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"

    Without hesitating, the attendant smiled and grabbed her public address microphone: "May I have your attention please, may I have your attention please," she began - her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. "We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him find his identity, please come to Gate 14."

    With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the Virgin attendant, gritted his teeth and said, "F... You!"

    Without flinching, she smiled and said, ( I love this bit ).................

    "I'm sorry, sir, but you'll have to get in line for that too."

    It's a funny story but Virgin Blue don't have 767s and this did not happen in Sydney. This one has been doing the rounds for a few years now... someone just changes the airline and location every now and then and off the story goes again

    Yep, but it is funny just the same.

    There are hundreds of aviation jokes on the web and I've seen so many airlines used in each one I can't keep track of them all.
