Crew Behaving Badly
Air crew can sometimes get high spirited when they are on a layover in a nice, hot, part of the world and they are lucky enough to be staying in a lovely hotel with a great swimming pool. High spirits inevitably reach new levels when drink is involved. On one occasion some members (in both senses of the word) of a crew had ended up skinny dippy in the pool. Egged on by some of the girls, one of the flight deck crew got out of the pool and was doing a variation on the dance of the seven veils using a similar number of towels. He finally, and some have said rather proudly, got down to the last towel and was parading along the edge off the swimming pool, which had what appeared to be a glass wall beside it. Unfortunately the glass wall was a one-way glass which the diners in the hotel’s restaurant could see out but those outside could not see in.
