FOD

I was trying to fly out of Corpus Christi this afternoon and I did my usual thing and put headphones on and went to sleep. I woke up to what sounded like something pounding on the plane. I was a bit concerned when they started marshaling the plane out afterwards. I asked the guy sitting at the window next to me what happened and he said he saw the APU hose get sucked into the engine.


I took my seat belt off as the flight attendant was walking by. She told me to put it back on and I said "I'm not flying on this plane, let me off". I told her what happened and hours later we finally left. I was worried that the other people on the plane would be mad at me but they were actually thanking me and one guy bought me a drink.

I fly a lot and have had some weird shit happen, but this takes the cake.

I have the worst fuckin luck!

  2. Was that a Southwest flight? They were just bragging on how little they had spent on their last fuel bill...Cutting costs and all...saving money.
    Personally, I hate flying because of all the demoralizing shit one has to go through after one pays an exorbitant amount of money.

    1. I fly Southwest mostly, they usually treat you better than other airlines and I like using smaller airports.

      Yeah, dealing with the TSA sucks but I do the precheck thing now so it's a lot like pre 9/11 security.
