We’re truly airborne!

A fair bit of today’s show was connected with air travel – albeit loosely.

First off we heard about the making of the latest commercial for FLY EMIRATES airline.

Have you seen it yet? It really is pretty spectacular supposedly featuring a member of their cabin crew apparently strapped to the top of the 828m Burj Khalifa tower in Dubai and holding up a series of cards reading, “Moving the UAE to the UK Amber list has made us feel on top of the world. Fly Emirates. Fly better.”

In fact although the company did indeed approach all their cabin crew staff asking for volunteers to appear in the commercial, there weren’t any takers and they were ultimately forced to employ a professional skydiving instructor, 33-year-old Nicole Smith-Ludvik, to act out the role instead.

She was attached to the pole as well as two other different points directly to the pinnacle, through a hidden harness under the Emirates uniform.

It took 5 hours to put the ad together and more than an hour for the final climb from level 160 to the top.

Think I’d rather sit that one out!

Then in the second hour we heard about the very drunk passenger who tried to board a flight from Moscow’s Sheremetyevo International Airport via the luggage carousel.

CCTV videos show the man casually walking onto a carousel with his hand luggage.

After losing his footing, falling over at an intersection and losing a shoe, he then ended up going the wrong way round on the conveyor belt.

The man’s bag snagged on the handrail but after he eventually freed it, he then got taken on an unexpected rollercoaster ride, and although unaware of its final destination, he was eventually disgorged at the baggage scanning point where he was promptly detained by security guards.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Internal Affairs said: “The duty manager received a message that an unidentified man was on the luggage belt on the third floor of Terminal D, and entered the sorting room via the carousels on 28th July.”

The 27-year old man from Yalta City has reportedly been charged with violating airport security rules.

Presumably he also missed his flight!

It’s far easier to simply use the departure lounge.

All being well I’ll catch you again tomorrow,
