Aer Lingus Fly TD To Shannon Airport

A380

It is mid-day and an Aer Lingus Airbus A380 is on its way from Heathrow to Shannon Airport when a  blonde “Teachta Dála” (Deputy to the Irish Parliament) seated in Economy Class (not representing Thurles I hasten to add) gets up and moves her seat to the First Class section.
A flight attendant catches her making the move and immediately asks to see her ticket.
She then informs her blonde passenger that she will have to return to her Economy seating.
The blonde replied, “I’m blonde, I’m a TD and I should not be asked to sit with the ordinary commoners in Economy Class. I’m going to Shannon and I’m refusing to move!”
The flight attendant goes into the cockpit and informs the pilot and co-pilot that there is some blonde bimbo TD type sitting in First Class who properly belongs seated in Economy Class and who is refusing to move back to her correct and allotted seat.
The co-pilot goes back to the TD and tries to explain that, because she has only paid for Economy, she is only entitled to travel in Economy and she will have to return to her original seat immediately.
The blonde replies, “I’m blonde, I’m a TD, I’m going to Shannon, I deserve to sit here and I’m not moving to sit with ordinary commoners!”
Exasperated, the co-pilot tells the pilot that it was no use and he probably should have the police waiting when they land, to arrest the blonde TD, who refuses to listen to basic reason.
“You say she’s blonde? I’ll handle this. I’m married to a blonde, so I speak blonde fluently!”
The pilot goes back to the blonde TD and smiling he whispers into her ear, and she says, “Oh I’m so terribly sorry – I had no idea thank you so much”, then gets up rather embarrassed and quickly moves back to her seat in Economy Class.
The flight attendant and co-pilot are amazed and questioned him as to what he said to make her move without any fuss.
The pilot replied, ‘I just told her that First Class isn’t landing in Shannon until next week’.
