    Nepal's state-run airline has confirmed that it sacrificed two goats to appease a Hindu god, following technical problems with one of its aircraft.
    Nepal Airlines said the animals were slaughtered in front of the plane - a Boeing 757 - at Kathmandu airport.

    How long before the fluffy-huggers get all agitated I wonder?

    Could this catch on...

    Quantas - Kangaroo gets it. Air France - shipment of British Lambs torched on the tarmac. Virgin - ??
     
  2. Hmmm, does this count as alternative overhaul and maintenance or was it complementary O&M??

    :cuddle: :cuddle:

    I want to be a plane technician for Virgin . . . a dream job. Only problem is, I don't think I can make a new patio on the runway.
     
  4. Leave the bloody goats and ring boeing
     
  5. Just been long haul with Virgin - the contents of some of their stewardesses uniforms was very appertising!!
     
  6. Probably got fed up with "your call is important to us", "your call is currently in a queue", and "if your 757 is fooked, press 5"......and thought sod that for a game of soldiers, pass us me Kukri and get Daisy & Buttercup airside sharpish.
     
  7. When has it ever been a good day to be a goat?
     
  8. Thursdays.
     
  9. Turkish airline staff did a camel last year to celebrate a new plane. Unfortunately in view of passengers! A bit of fuss over that....
     
  10. If it's any day, it'll be a Monday.

    13 February 2006 was a Monday.

    M'lud, I rest my case.
     
  11. They did years ago and RGR were stopped from doing it even though it was part of their religion.
     
  12. True - if you want to be a goat and get bummed, Thursdays are a good day to be a goat if you just fancy popping into town for some leisurely pineapple shopping.
     
  13. Cait, I now see where I was wrong. I'm sorry. Thanks for your patience.

    I forgot why I never go down the fruit market after Wednesdays.
     
  14. Oh I thought this was a STAFFORDS doggie moan...
     
  15. Interesting way of fixing a snag that keeps getting written of as "UTRF"
