Tired Flight Attendant is ordered to get an in-flight movie that is "interesting" enough and maliciously complies.

Updated: New Information and Clarifications

This Malicious Compliance belongs to my Beautiful Wife, but since it is from many decades ago, from a time before we knew each other, we will call her Classy Flight Attendant here.

First the usual disclaimers: I am on a computer, so completely responsible for the formatting. English is both my 1st and 3rd language, and my mother was a school teacher, so I am also completely responsible for my use of grammar and spelling. Although I do not care to hear about it if the spelling tends to vacillate between British and American standards. Or the punctuation for that matter. Dialog is translated from the original language and is given as reported to me.

The Setup:

At the time of this event, Classy Flight Attendant is one of the top tier flight attendants for her country's National Airline. Strictly speaking, any of their flights that do not involve ports in the USA or its territories, are not required to follow all FAA rules. However, whenever they fly to ports regulated by the FAA, they are expected to follow those rules to the tee. Of course, it doesn't always work out that way in practice.

On this occasion, Classy Flight Attendant has just landed from Europe at her home airport in South America, only to learn that she is being turned around for a roundtrip to New York City. She protests. By the time she lands in New York, she will be well outside FAA rest period rules with all the consequences that could follow. Her supervisors don't care. They need her on that flight RIGHT NOW. And away she goes.

But she knows the flight to New York isn't the real problem; it's the return trip that will be pure misery. Her compatriots flying home from New York tend to be extremely entitled. They are coming from New York. That makes them "somebody" now. They will refuse drink service when offered, and then when the flight attendant is three or four rows further along push the call button and order a drink. They will keep an attendant hoping back and forth the whole flight for stupid little things, many of them things they could actually do for themselves. Classy Flight Attendant is tired, and knows that dealing with this entitled crowd on the return trip is going to be the worst.

As they get into New York, she is told to go check out an in-flight movie for the return trip. The suggestion is made to make it interesting enough to keep the passengers too busy to order the flight crew around that much. Cue the Malicious Com

I'm Scott from Scott's Cheap Flights. Here to celebrate those recent $202 roundtrip Japan flights & answer all your flight questions for the next 12 hours! AMA

I’ve got the world’s best job (and it’s all thanks to Reddit): I’m a professional cheap flight finder.

Five years ago, Reddit helped take Scott’s Cheap Flights from a hobby to a side-hustle to a job to now a start-up with 40 people and growing.

(If you're curious you can check out Scott's Cheap Flights here, but zero pressure. Honestly!)

To say thanks, once a year or so I like to pop in and spend the day talking cheap flights and answering all your questions, travel or otherwise. And also to celebrate Redditor’s success stories getting cheap flights, including:

(If you’ve been able to book a cheap flight recently give a shout in the comment sectionβ€”I wanna celebrate with you!)

And now, after years of being asked β€œwhat’s your secret to finding cheap flights?” I finally got my shit together and compiled everything I know into a book out next week, Take More Vacations: How to Search Better, Book Cheaper, and Travel the World.

One of my goals in this book was to cut through the BS misconceptions that get parroted elsewhere as cheap flight advice, like β€œclear your cook

Starship Serial Number 15 - Hop Test #1

Starship SN15, equipped with three sea-level Raptor engines will attempt a high-altitude hop at SpaceX's development and launch site in Boca Chica, Texas. The flight profile is likely to follow closely previous Starship test flights and SpaceX will be targeting a successful take-off, ascent to apogee, transition to horizontal, descent, engine re-ignition, re-orientation and touchdown.

The vehicle is expected ascend to an altitude of approximately 10km, before moving from a vertical orientation (as on ascent), to horizontal orientation, in which the broadside (+ x) of the vehicle is oriented towards the ground. At this point, Starship will attempt an unpowered return to launch site (RTLS), using its aerodynamic control surfaces (ACS) to adjust its attitude and fly a course back to the landing pad. In the final stages of the descent, all three Raptor engines will ignite to transition the vehicle to a vertical orientation and perform a propulsive landing. The exact launch time may not be known until just a few minutes before launch, and will be preceded by a local siren about 10 minutes ahead of time.

SpaceX is pushing for orbital test flights of the Starship vehicle later
