    Heres one for you:On a short flight from Bangkok to Malaysia with only a few passengers aboard, a stewardess asks if it would be fine if she skipped the safety briefing. Everyone was OK with it except for a little old American lady. So the stewardess walks up to her and says: “Listen Lady, it’s very easy: we crash, you die!”


    Read on some Spiegel website.

  1. From the CBC:   A prominent Arctic research mission is coming under fire for a dress code policy that has highlighted concerns about systemic sexism in the polar sciences. The MOSAiC expedition, an international research mission led by Germany's Alfred-Wegener-Institut, had polar researchers navigating Arctic sea ice for a full year collecting data about the Arctic climate and climate change. But shortly after the journey began, women on board a support vessel for the mission, the Akademik Fedorov, were told they could not dress in tight-fitting clothing due to safety concerns. Journalist Chelsea Harvey was on board the ship for six weeks in October 2019 when the policy was first disclosed. She recently wrote about the rules for energy and environmental research trade publication E&E News. Halfway through her voyage, she said, passengers were told that "thermal underwear" was prohibited as outerwear in common areas. The next day, Harvey said the mission's leaders elaborated to say that "no leggings, no very tight-fitting clothing — nothing too revealing — no crop tops, no hot pants [and] no very short shorts" would be allowed.   Full article:  https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/mosaic-dress-code-sexism-arctic-research-1.5739547
  2. The Business Travel Thread

      I thought a general business travel thread might be a good idea where we can discuss any experiences we have had and possibly get/give pointers to the fellow frequent travellers.   Summing up what we already have on TT(That I could find on the schnell):   Frequent flyer program recommendations?   Lufthansa's Miles & More   Noise cancelling headphones
