    Professions where you should NEVER say “Uh-oh” out loud: pilot, doctor, hair dresser…

    The plane might just be dumping or the pilot had a heart attack.

    If there are no sudden movements or loud noises coming from the plane, just wait..

    1. No one would be sleeping yet on a flight that is just reaching “cruising altitude” (Joan and the “Z’s”) 2. Wally would not be allowed to be watching a movie at this point as “all electronic devices need to be turned off”—if anything, now that they are at cruising altitude you’d get the “the captain has turned off the…..and you may now use your electronic devices”.

    Ranks right up there with "Doctor… did you just say ‘oops?’ "

    John Baranick, you can watch videos and use other electronics above 10,000 ft. Cruising altitude is 35,000+ on transatlantic depending on the location of the smoothest air and the jet stream. Many people including me often fall asleep before take-off.

    The other words you never want to hear on a flight is “Is there a doctor on board?” This actually happened to me once. The guy knew he was having a heart attack but thought that he could make it back to India. We had to divert to Las Vegas where we sat on the ground for 2 hours because they couldn’t find one of the oxygen tanks. Needless to say, we missed our flight to London.

    Yup.. It’s tough to call an ambulance at 35,000 feet.

    Maybe Wally’s the cause of the problem.

    @John Baranick1) Actually many people are asleep before the plane lifts off, especially on overseas flights trying to avoid jetlag2) Electronic devices are allowed upon reaching 10,000’ typical cruising altitude is 25,000’ and higher

    I wonder why people can’t understand comics happen in an alternate universe where people can use electronic devices during takeoff if that’s needed to make something funny.

    I actually had a Dr. say “uh oh” in the emergency room once, when I was strapped to a spine board and tubes running in me. Not very pleasant to hear.

    I don’t like to hear “uh oh” by the pilot. “Oh NO!” either.

    I took a flight to Austria almost a decade ago. We were over the Atlantic when the plane was struck by lightning, somewhere along my side of the fuselage in the area of the galley, between coach, where I was sitting in the front row (with my knees up against a bulkhead) and first class. My seatmate asked what happened; I casually told her. She asked if that would be a problem. I told her that if it were going to be a problem, we’d be hurtling nose-first toward the ocean already; modern aircraft had means of dealing with lightning strikes. About five minutes later, a very heavily accented first officer keyed up the intercom and told us what I already knew. I presume the copilot got on the horn because the pilot’s English was even worse. We landed in Vienna without incident.

    1. It didn’t make it funny. 2. Of course I know it’s a comic strip, but that doesn’t give a free pass to just be ignorant of reality. To me, it makes as much sense as if Wally looked up and was in ‘blackface’, or was a cyclops for that frame. It just doesn’t make sense.
