....but they sure are funny. Stories from a DC airport ticket agent..... 1. I had a Congresswoman ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!) ------------------------------------------------- 2. I got a call from a Congressman's staffer who wanted to go to Cape Town. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then he interrupted me with, ''I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Cape Town is in Massachusetts ..'' Without trying to make him look stupid, I calmly explained, ''Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Cape Town is in South Africa '' His response -- click.. --------------------------------------------------- 3. A senior Congressman called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando . He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that's not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state. He replied, 'Don't lie to me!, I looked on the map, and Florida is a very THIN state!!'' (OMG) ---------------------------------------------------- 4. I got a call from a lawmaker's wife who asked, ''Is it possible to see England from Canada ?'' I said, ''No.'' She said, ''But they look so close on the map'' (OMG, again!) ----------------------------------------------------- 5. An aide for a cabinet member once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas . I pulled up the reservation and noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas .. When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, ''I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.'' (Aghhhh) ----------------------------------------------------- 6. A Congresswoman called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 a.m., and got to Chicago at 8:33 a.m. I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois , but she couldn't understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went fast, and she bought that. ------------------------------------------------------ 7. A lawmaker called and asked, ''Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?'' I said, 'No, why do you ask?' He replied, ''Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I'm overweight. I think that's very rude!'' After putting him on hold for a minute, while I looked into it. (I was dying laughing). I came back and explained the city code for Fresno , Ca. is (FAT - Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on his luggage.. ----------------------------------------------------------- 8. A Senator’s aide called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii . After going over all the cost info, she asked, ''Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii ?'' ----------------------------------------------------------- 9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman who asked, ''How do I know which plane to get on?'' I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, ''I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have numbers on them.'' ------------------------------------------------------------ 10. A Senator called and said, ''I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola , Florida .. Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?'' I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola , FL on a commuter plane. She said, ''Yeah, whatever, smarty!'' -------------------------------------------------------------- 11. A Senator called and had a question about the documents she needed in order to fly to China . After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded her that she needed a visa. "Oh, no I don't. I've been to China many times and never had to have one of those.'' I double checked and sure enough, her stay required a visa. When I told her this she said, ''Look, I've been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express!'' -------------------------------------------------------------- 12. A Congressman called to make reservations, ''I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York.'' I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, ''Are you sure that's the name of the town?'' 'Yes, what flights do you have?'' replied the man. After some searching, I came back with, ''I'm sorry, sir, I've looked up every airport code in the country and can't find a rhino anywhere." ''The man retorted, ''Oh, don't be silly! Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!'' So I scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, ''You don't mean Buffalo , do you?'' The reply? ''Whatever! I knew it was a big animal.'' --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quoting bestbet2011:

funny stuff... add this ..I worked in a French Quarter hotel once and had a woman guest check in about 7-8PM, kinda flaky at check in, trying to get payment then went to her room came back to desk and proceeded...with about a 15 minute story like this "my husband is a pilot for X airline, and we live in SFO, he started out his day flying from there on flight 111 and we are meeting here. I know he went to LAX first, then to ATL...she then interrupted and told me some short story about how her kid got in trouble at school today, then back to I arrived here at 3PM and had trouble getting my car, then I got lost...and I know my husband was flying here ...and the story went on and on always going back to her husband's flight; to the final crescendo; which was her whole point for coming back to the desk......... 'Do you know what time my husband's plane lands?' I momentarily was at a loss for words.....then said, I thought as succintly as possible "Just a moment let me use radar and see if I can get into the cockpit." Ok she happily replied I'll wait right here! GG-no joke. She did. I had to finally LEAD her to the conclusion that I had NO idea a) who her husband was b) where her husband was c) what time his plane would arrive d) that I did not have any radar into any cockpit and e) that maybe she ought to call the airline herself.


That's funny Bestbet.

Hello Starry,

It could be serious, if it was not so darn funny!  

God bless,

John

And from someone outside the politcal circle.... My ex wife worked in airline reservations and was asked about flights from LAX to London. "Yes," my wife replied, "we have daily flights to London." To which the customer replied, "Oh, I wanted to travel at night." omg
