AirAsia Cabin Crew Had A ‘Moaning’ Contest, Throws Passengers Off The Deep End
By Izza Sofia, 30 Oct 2017
AirAsia decided to hold a ‘moaning’ competition on board a flight.
A video, filmed back in January, of the bizarre game has only just emerged. The exercise, which took place as the plane flew over the South China Sea, appears to have involved the crew and willing passengers trying to moan into the PA system for as long as they possibly can, until their breath runs out, with prizes awarded for the loudest, longest moan.
At one point a staff member announces that someone managed to emit an 80-second moan, which she appears to find rather amusing. Some passengers find the episode quite funny, but not all onboard gave the prank the thumbs up.
The footage was filmed and uploaded online by a couple from Chicago, Harry and Audrey Lesner, who run a travel website called thebudgetsavvytravelers.com—and they were definitely unimpressed.
Harry said, “As if flying isn’t stressful enough these days! Consider this unimaginable scenario. The captain announces that the aircraft has reached cruising altitude. Passengers begin to settle in and eyes become heavy. Next, the flight crew decides to hold a moaning contest aboard your flight. We caught this mind-boggling moment while flying from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to Cebu, Philippines.”
He added, “The reaction of the passengers was priceless. It was a mix of shocked mutual stares, bulging eyes and covered ears, and confused “what the hells?” It lasted around 10 to 15 minutes as there weren’t many eager participants.”
Take a look at the contest in the video below.
