The passengers asked when they’d be serving the onboard drinks and snacks. The steward, who also happened to double as the pilot, explained that there were none due to ‘economy cuts’. The passengers grew fearful when it became apparent that these economy cuts meant there were no oxygen masks, lifejackets or an inflatable chute. The pilot/steward laughed it off, as he did when queried why the plane had no navigation instruments, not even a compass. Economy cuts, he said. As the plane began its haphazard descent, the passengers wondered where the landing strip was. Of course, they knew the answer.

    I'm scared of flying, so I certainly wouldn't want to use this airline!

    Great stuff, Julie. Now instead of cutting the inflight booze, if that airline had plied them all with free hard liquor, then they would've all stopped caring.
