You always make me laugh!
So, i’m a doctor too and have so far been lucky enough to be on flights where “Is there a doctor on board?” didn’t come up.
I’m the kind of person who really enjoys airline booze (we had booze on a morning flight to DXB – Hey i was a fan of LOST) but i have to say i now feel obliged not to drink or even take sleep heavily during a long haul flight.
I’d be happy with a simple genuine Thank you. But airlines could honestly step it up by say… offering a juicy discount on one’s next booking or even an upgrade on the return leg (if the incident doesn’t happen on the return leg). Such would make me want to fly to airline again (if the next airfares sale doesn’t!).
