A British Airways flight

As the British Airways flight ascended to its cruising altitude, the captain’s reassuring voice permeated the cabin: “Welcome aboard Flight 293, bound from London Heathrow to New York. Weather looks promising, expecting a smooth ride. Sit back, relax, and… Oh dear!”

A sudden hush fell over the passengers as the unexpected interruption halted the captain’s announcement mid-sentence. Moments later, his voice crackled over the intercom once more.

“Apologies for the interruption, folks. Seems a bit of a mishap occurred. A spilled cup of coffee found its way onto my lap. Quite the spectacle, I assure you.”

In the quiet aftermath, a distinct Irish accent pierced through the cabin from the rear. “Ah, sure, and if you think that’s a sight, captain, you ought to cast your eyes on the back of my trousers!”
