Flying with Supair!

Flying with Supair! was created by Monty
I was planning to book a trip to New York from London when I saw an airline you could only book a seat online with. This new airline were offering ‘zero carbon emissions’ for the Atlantic crossing, with a flight time of around 3 hours (a substantial saving of an average flight time of seven to eight hours). I was intrigued. The flight appeared a bit expensive, but I was told over the phone that the flight assistants were working on ‘special hourly rates’ (whatever that meant…) With the carbon emissions affecting the global climate changes and the airline's positive outlook, I booked a seat immediately.
I was guided to my seat by one of the gorgeous stewardesses and settled in to my chair for the flight. I relaxed with the boiling hot coffee a stewardess brought to me. The cup was scalding, but for some reason the smiling air stewardess didn’t even register a hint of discomfort as I nearly dropped the coffee in burning pain.
No matter, we would soon be on our way…glancing out the window, I saw our captain and flight bridge officers approaching on the tarmac, then for some reason most of the stewardesses left the plane!
“What is happening with the ladies leaving the flight?” I enquired of one of the uniformed girls.
“Oh, they are the Grade Five assistants, the best in the business. I’m only Grade Three at the moment, but with a couple years more training I hope to be up to level five!” she replied cheerfully. “Enjoy your flight, sir!”
As I looked out below, the captain was pointing out various points of the undercarriage and below the wings to the attentive, nodding females. The captain embarked onto the flight whilst the half-dozen girls remained on the tarmac. ‘That can’t be right’ I thought to myself.
“Good afternoon” the captain announced over the intercom. “We will shortly be departing Heathrow for our destination. Cruising altitude over the Atlantic will be thirty-five thousand feet, outside cabin pressure and temperature is forecast at around minus twenty degrees, but I assure you, we are in safe hands. Thankyou.” There was no seatbelt warning light overhead as I fumbled around for the missing belts on my chair, panicking a little. “Oh, you don’t have to worry about those silly little things!” came the soothing voice from above from the stewardess who had seated me earlier, “You’re safety here is taken care of outside.”
With that, the aircraft rose vertically! I couldn’t believe my eyes as the sight of tarmac fell away from us with the tons of the aircraft surrounding me!
“How is this possible?” I asked the calm stewardess.
“I told you, there are grade fives flying with us!”
The plane began to accelerate to over Mach 2 on the digital readout display to the front of the cabin as we cruised above the clouds with not even a hum of an engine noise and no vapour trails discarded from the winged engines.
Our arrival at La Guardia was unexpectedly completely vertical with a sudden drop! Although the girls must have been told to slow their descent to avoid risking the health of their passengers. ‘Must’ve been in their health & safety briefings on reaching grade five’ I mused.
All six girls who had received their holding instructions at Heathrow were waiting on the tarmac to greet us cheerfully after a flight time of two hours and fifty minutes.


Phew! Can’t wait for the return leg! I’ll definitely be flying Supair again!

Same here again! It is quite expensive, probably due to insurance rates for passengers and training costs for the teams of Stewardesses to be covered.
I noticed the cool emblem on the side of the jumbo jet whilst boarding, but I never expected the flight of a lifetime!

Here is one of the stewardess taking a break from her flying and holding duties to promote her new venture she is undertaking in Dubai with Emirates Airlines.
"Well, the money is ALOT better here flying solo!" she smiled.

"Hey, what's with the rigging attachments to the antenna mast here?.... As long as you let me fly down to the pool after we finish the shoot."

"Hey, what's with the rigging attachments to the antenna mast here?...Dubai health and safety? I know you guys are stricter here, but as long as you let me fly down to the pool after we finish the shoot, ok?...Yeah, yeah, let's see, you guys gonna try an stop me?"

That sure fired up my Acrophobia. My worst recurring nightmare is waking up on top of a pinnacle or tower, alone, and realizing I can't climb down. Yikes!

"Now Listen! I am NOT holding your luggage AND carrying your Private Jet at the same time! The luggage goes on board with you. I'll keep the aviator shades on for carrying the flight. They do look pretty cool, right?"

She is still there... 
 "Oooo look!" she pointed and giggled
"Is that another aircraft that can fly on it's own?"

"Sherylyne!" the captain called out. "where the hell are you?! "

"Listen guys, I'm sitting on the wing, I've carried your little plane across the Atlantic and the whole of the United States to LAX. I'm taking a break. I don't get paid enough for this sht. You can land the plane yourself."

Just saw this post today. This is so funny and original!

How do the passengers see what's going on underneath the plane? There must be a camera on the bottom of the plane, near the wheel well maybe, with a live feed into the passenger compartment.

Maybe the Grade 3's float inside the plane as they do the safety briefing. And they fly back and forth along the aisle, as they help the passengers with blankets and so on.

Yes, the grade three stewardess can act as 'Internal Support', rising to the inside roof of the aircraft. "Don't worry!" they say to the astonished passengers below. "This is just training exercises before reaching grade five outside. It's a bit like Top Gun training! Enjoy your in-flight meal!"

An AirStewardess has 'dropped the ball' on a flight to Australia.
"You can't fire me! After all the hard work and training I have put in over the years!" she was quoted as saying.
Her Co-AirStewardess, on the opposite wing sighed "I warned her at take-off that just because it's an A380 SuperJumbo, you still have to take it easy, but she obviously pushed too hard there."

As the commenters on that site point out, confused journalists don't even know the difference between a fairing and a fuselage. She filed a Union Grievance to get her job back. The Labor Relations Board agreed. They ordered that she be reinstated with back pay, and a formal apology from Management for implying that she was a safety hazard.
