Article from BTNews 10 JANUARY 2011


From the Sunday Times travel pages over the holidays.

“We were running the bar service on the Sydney route when a charming but slightly doddery older gentleman asked how he could order another G&T,” says Lou, from Qantas.  “I pointed at the call button on his arm rest – I wouldn’t do it for everybody, to be honest – and told him he simply needed to push it.  Sure enough, 15 minutes later, his light went on.  When I got there he was holding his glass underneath the arm rest and stabbing the button repeatedly, while shaking his head and muttering that it didn’t work.  Bless him.”
