Embarrassing situations on aircraft.

I have recently flown QF from LHR to DXB in Y. I had seats 32 A and B to myself, a young couple had 32 C D E F. Whilst the lights were dimmed I caught them in what can best be described as In flagrante delicto. It has to be said that when I turned my seat light on the activities stopped.

I was wondering if any other frequent travellers had witnessed such amusing in flight entertainment? Perhaps we can publish a book on the amusing stories such as this from a passengers view point rather than another tell all from disenfranchised cabin crew.

No photos were taken, cabin crew were not summonsed, the joining of the mile high club by said couple was not verified as it was just a nosh job and I am uncertain if it ended happily. It certainly ended embarrassingly for them.

Please keep all comments as clean as possible.

:)  yes I had something similar on a BA 747 flight  ( upper deck bulk head seats) from SIN to LHR in 2006 around 2 am from memroy. Spanish couple I think were definetly enjoying the dimmed cabin ambience with a not so subtle tango and loud smoochy sounds...... even funnier when the CSM tried to  "clear her throat to get attention"  without much luck and had to resort to lighting up their seats with a couple of  flash lights and finally tapping one of the happy couple on the shoulder to get some attention to bring a halt to their dance.  Gotta love things like that, odd but funny and makes the travel experience unique lol.

Nice, lol. 

Weird stories do make travelling a bit more enjoyable. Dead blokes in toilets, couples enjoying each other's company too much.  There must be a book in it somewhere.

Dying alone in an aircraft toilet, definitely not the way to go!

It was no doubt tragic for all involved and I can think of better ways to shuffle off the mortal coil but it did provide an interesting tale that I regaled friends and colleagues with.

IMHO it is far better than what I got few years back. Plane was full and I was flaying SIN-MEL. They sat Indian couple close to me and lady that sits immediately next to me start vomiting minute after aircraft became airborne and continue doing so whole 9 hr flight. Initially it smells like some kind of curry, but after few hours it became some sort of stomach acid smell. I called FA and she said that she indeed sorry for me, but cannot reposition me because flight is packed. She even suggested me to have a look if I disbelieve. I did so and there was no single seat, so I was bounded sit and inhale aroma and listen to process whole flight to Melbourne.

With this is perspective, I would not mind if couple engage themselves in funny activities few seats apart in semi-empty flight

woganfan,

Was the couple hot? ;)

Don't hate me for asking. I'm sure everyone was thinking about it!

It would make the entertainment slightly more enjoyable.

Not especially stunning but not repulsive. But I am more of a Vanessa Mae Wendi Deng kind of fancying bloke anyway.

Whilst most bathrooms on planes are barely large enough for 1 person, the disability bathroom downstairs in the QF A380 is large enough for 2 or more people.  I'd expect that many couples have taken advantage of it.

My Step-son was travelling unacompinied on an empty qantas flight from Coffs to Sydney. the only people at the back of the plane was him, and a couple who didnt realise he was there, full on lying on each other kissing (And from his story, a bit more!). He was disturbed

Sounds like I've been fortunate. The most singular experience I've ever had involving other people on a flight was the time I got into a discussion about European history with an American businessman and two German backpackers next to the Y snackbar at the back of the QF A380.

An interesting discussion no doubt and significantly nicer than the experience Serg had with the vomiting passenger.
