Throughout my 9 years of having elite status across a slew of airlines, I will be the first to admit that I have been drunk on a plane a number of times! In fact, I will be the first to admit that when I fly longhaul, I enjoy sipping whiskey or scotch, get my buzz on and passing out in business class. If you read my blog you’ve probably notice that little cup of apple juice in many photos. 😛 On the trips where I find that my upgrade didn’t come through or I actually purchased a ticket in economy instead of cashing in miles, you better believe that I’m getting drunk on a plane! Otherwise there’s no way I will be sleeping sitting upright, knees in my chest, drooling on my neighbor–unless I am drunk on a plane!
Yet with that in mind, while driving to work the other day I heard a song called Drunk on a Plane by Dierks Bentley. It made me laugh, despite it’s overall sad undertones and I thought I would share it with you. No matter what your reason for drinking on a plan–sleep, boredom, sadness or just because hell you’ve paid for a ticket and the booze comes free–I think many of us have been drunk on a plane!
Now if only plane rides were truly that much fun! I have yet to fall in love or dance on a plane, but I’ve definitely had thoughts about telling people off/calling them when landing like Dierks did, all of course while drunk on a plane!
So do you have any funny stories about being drunk on a plane? I think my favorite memory of being drunk on a plane was when I was 23 and was heading to San Francisco Pride, I drank so much that when I got to the BART I passed out and woke up in Oakland, 6 stops pass where I was supposed to get off! My friends teased me for the rest of the weekend!
