AbFab in real life?

A plane was forced to make an emergency landing in Germany after two British women tried to open a cabin door mid-flight. Am I the only one who immediately thought of AbFab when I read that article? If you're not convinced yet, here's more:

The XL Airways plane was flying from the Greek island of Kos to Manchester when Wednesday's incident happened.

An airline spokeswoman said the women were thought to have been smoking in the plane's toilet, and were suspected of bringing their own alcohol on board.

She said they had started to swear at and threaten staff who refused to sell them any more alcohol from the bar.

The women had then said they wanted to open the door to get "some fresh air" into the plane.

We won't tolerate this sort of behaviour XL Airways spokeswoman.

"Their language was totally unacceptable, as was their behaviour. They were very abusive and threatening," the spokeswoman said.


I'm thinking Eddy and Pats have come to life.

Oh, and just in case you're not familiar with the show, check out the clip below. :-)

I can't believe that someone would try to open a cabin door mid-flight. Do people not realize that airplane cabins are specially pressurized and that opening the door mid-flight would be catastrophic?

Oh, by the way, we don't know each other, but I found your blog from a comment you left on Paul and Storm's website. I'm another long-time fan of theirs. Hi. :)
