I shamefully asked a flight attendant to help me …
Once I took a flight from New York to Shanghai, the transfer station was Wuhan,
I brought a limited-edition lighter to my dad without opening the package or refilling it.
when heading to the airpot, I suddenly thought that the lighter is an aviation prohibited item, but I was so closed to the airport. so I deliberately checked the requirements of the Chinese and American security check for lighters. It is totally forbidden to carry or consign for shippment. Fortunately, New York’s requirement is that the lighter cannot be consigned but one can be carried with me,so I packed the light in a school bag and taken on the plane.
However, after getting on the plane, I realized that I had to go through the security check again during transit in Wuhan. So there are only two options left-either deposit it at Wuhan Airport and pick it up within two weeks or throw it away. Suddenly I felt very frustrated and felt that I might just throw away the gift of thousands of dollars. (My dad is in Guangzhou, I only stay in Shanghai for one day to apply for a visa. I originally planned to send my dad to Guangzhou by courier in Shanghai, and I have already bought a ticket for the next day to return to Northeast China. It is impossible to stay in China for only two weeks for a lighter. Then fly to Wuhan specially)
After struggling for a while, I decided to consult with the beautiful lady stewardess if there is any other solution. The lady said there was no other way. I had planned to throw it at Wuhan Airport, and silently bid farewell to the lighter in my heart. It was indeed impossible to pass the security check, but I thought of she could take it out for me when she arrived in Wuhan. To send express delivery to Guangzhou, Then I was ashamed to ask the flight attendant to help me contact the courier company to send the package for me… She agreed, I said thank you many times that day.
So I guess the weirdest things flight attendants have seen in their line of duty is that Asked by passengers to help deliver a lighter when they change shifts and rest.
