Fear Of Flying
As a Qantas A380 experienced an engine failure after taking off from Singapore today and hopefully managed an emergency landing without any casualty, I couldn't help but wonder:
- When a commercial plane crashes, do first class passengers get priority access to heaven and free booze for eternity?
- Do sinful frequent flyers get upgraded from purgatory to heaven?
- What kind of compensation do Platinum status passengers get?
Or, if it works according to the parable: "So the last will be first and the first will be last", does this mean that coach passengers will get lifetime Platinum status?
Most importantly, will people affected by anatidaephobia (the fear of being watched by a duck) die too?
So many stupid questions, so much time on our hands to try and answer them!
