    Girlfriend’s Dilemma

    Missus just read out a funny thing to me.

    ‘ I’ve been going steady with Carl for 3 years now and at the moment we’re on our first holiday abroad. When our plane landed I discovered that he’s one of those wankers who claps when it lands. Do I bin him?’

    Well I found it amusing.

    When did this start as a thing - just been to Spain and there was applause there and back - I thought that only happened when it was a dodgy landing - maybe it is catching from COVID when health were clapped each week 🤔

    If he was on a Boeing, that's quite an achievement these days!

    I always thought that it was a 70s-80s thing, when people didn't fly that much. It obviously hasn't died out then. I uppose it's away of showing appreciation, Aviations version of 'Cheers Drive) although it's a bit moronic.

    Funny though.

    People tip or thank someone bringing them some reheated food, they will tip the taxi driver, they will say thanks drive to the bus driver but clap a landing by a highly skilled pilot flying hundreds of millions worth of metal over countries and continents and you're a ****ing weirdo

    Can't say I take part, not since I was encouraged to as a little kid by my nan about 25 years ago but I've always assumed it was a mix of relief and some appreciation to the flight crew.

    It would happen regularly whenever I flew into Mumbai from Delhi, but then they were all pretty dodgy landings!

    Definitely ...took him 3 years to take her abroad. He will be clapping the landing next ....

    I wonder if it was a female pilot and he thought that task was beyond her?
    He probably thinks, despite no training whatsoever, that he can reverse the plane into the gate better than she ever could.

    Hopefully he was clever, booked it on her credit card, and be happy if she dumps him and be released fron duty. Is her name Tracy, Charmagne or Mercedez per chance?
