If there’s one thing we love, it’s flying First Class. Or if one really must, darling, Business Class. So we’re aghast that an Air France flight attendant has confessed to robbing passengers while they slept in their oh-so-comfy fully-reclining beds, thinking they were safe from the grubbiness of coach class.
The air hostess, to use the charming old term, has been identified only as Lucie R. and was nobbled after five Japanese tourists en route to Paris reported some $5,000 missing. The 47-year-old then confessed to a total of 27 passenger thefts.
We hope she gets a long sentence – we refuse to be forced to travel by budget airlines, or to keep our valuables in one of those loathsome, pedestrian money belts.
