Plot twist: we've uncovered a "serial spanker" in the AA flight crew ranks!!!! I always did think that FemBot in the safety videos had some secrets!!! "We're here to make your flight great, cause "thank you mistress may I have another" is what we're going for!!"

She whips her head around and looks at me and says, "Sweetie, the seat belt sign went on -- hurry up, or I'm going to have to spank you."

I replied, "Darlin' is that a promise?" and headed into the lav.

She laughed, I laughed and when I deplaned a while later she gave me a hug and thanked me for making her day.

IMO, the only problem here was the lady in front of the OP who just should have minded her own business.

Honestly in my experience AA is up there as well as BA. The worst among oneworld IMO is Finnair. I think that could just be a language/culture thing.

Despite my misgivings of AA I have to fully admit I've never had a bad flight attendant on any LUS, LAA, or pre-merger AA/US flight. I could point out 1-2 bad ones I've had on Delta, JetBlue and Southwest but my AA/US ones have either been bland/forgettable at their worst and funny/personable/went out of their way to help me at their best.

How much is the extra fee to sit in the spanking section? Or maybe stand?

Sad - FA was playful and silly and not only did the OP repost it but the passengers around him wasted oxygen on it. Disappointed with humanity.

Sick burn, bro. If you identified with the demographic I mentioned in my post perhaps some introspection on your part is warranted?

Referring to people on this thread as lecherous old weirdos and choosing to read through a thread and then to demand people stop so you don't have to listen/read it shows very much who you are, "bro". I think you need the introspection.

AS or BA for me, but I'll give the nod to AS since I've ended up dating more FAs from AS than BA.

If you're uncomfortable with the fit of the shoe perhaps you should try not wearing it. Maybe just ask yourself whether your behavior would be appropriate at the dinner table.

Some people have no sense of humor.

I'd rather listen to FAs threaten spankings than the credit card pitch.

I have been dating an equal number of FAs from B6, AA, AS, BA, AY, WN, SU, and S7

What if they threaten a spanking if you don't sign up for the card?

Yawn.... "Sick burn, bro." Is that really the best response you could come up with "dude"?

Sometimes older folks need to realize that the world has changed, and what they think is funny is now considered the equivalent of making racist jokes.
I might regret asking this, but what about the older gentleman’s comment was crude?

I read it as his saying the FA was acting like she was the OP’s mother (threatening to discipline him for misbehaving). Pretty inocuous.

FWIW, I’m probably about the same age as you, ORDlady, based on the ages of your children - so not a millennial but not old!
