A comedy of errors...

This happened on my flight to Tunis via Milan. So once our flight landed in Tunis and was taxing around - it stopped for a min. And ofcourse, the stewardess announces - not to get up. But ofcourse, who listens to them? So a couple of people stand up and the stewardess (only 3 in number serving about 120 of us) started to shout saying them to sit down.

But then once again the flight moved, and after another min it stopped again (however the clear msg said do not move until the plane completely stops and seat belt sign is off)

But there was one guy sitting diagonally to me, he was well dressed in a suit so wouldnt expect it from him - but well, he looked as if he wanted some fun.
So as to provoke people to again get up, he started to play with his seat belt - fastening and unfastening making the clinking noise. The third time he did it - people thought that its time to get up - and people started standing up. What happens? The stewardess again get up fuming and telling people to sit down. Seeing this, the dude breaks into a cackle and everyone started laughing - was such a hilarious moment to end the flight which wasn't the best one with no vegetarian food on the flight (although ensuring that 2 days in advance and the only answer to me being - "too bad it got over" not even asking if they can serve something else or have at least a comforting tone) But well, go Alitalia (at least the luggage arrived in one piece)

Besides that, the conference has started off on a good note. Tunis is pretty, its interesting to see a few locals that I met in the Global Village chit chatting about Tunisia and how it is for them to live there. They were extremely excited to see an Indian (they watch Bollywood movies every single week but hardly any Indians in this country). The place is not as warm as everyone imagined to be. I hope the sun shines even more brightly through the next few days - definitely need that after escaping the Zurich weather.

Dude! Dont you remember the flight Milan - Cairo last year? It is no news that Alitalia is the airline that stinks like salami, and makes you feel like flying on a steel pizza.

Remember that flight? With the people sittin on the floor and fighting the stewardess to sit in first class until they almost had to call the cops?

And how in the same flight we lost Mich's phone and Pinar arrived with no luggage in Cairo?

You said it fairly: At least you have luggage and it is in one piece. Alitalia sucks... brave you for flying it.
