In today’s joke of the day, we hone in on air travel and the unexpected humor that often accompanies the quirky situations that arise during flights on airplanes.



Shortly after take-off and with everyone seated comfortably on the airplane, a woman suddenly sneezed which startled the man next to her. She gently wiped her nose, then visibly shuddered for a few seconds.

The man went back to his reading, but a few minutes later, the woman sneezed again. She wiped her nose with a tissue and shuddered again for several minutes.

While it appeared that the woman had a cold, her shuddering tickled the man’s curiosity, but he resumed his reading once more.

Another couple of minutes passed before the woman sneezed for the third time, and like the previous two times, she took out a tissue and wiped her nose but shuddered even more than before.

The man’s curiosity got the better of him, and he turned to the woman and asked, “I couldn’t help but notice that you have sneezed three times, wiped your nose and then shuddered violently. Are you ok?”


"I am sorry if I disturbed you," the woman replied. "I have a very rare medical condition; whenever I sneeze, I have an orgasm."

Now even more curious than before, the man pressed on. "I have never heard of that condition before," he said. "Are you taking anything for it?"

The woman nodded and said,



Unexpected situations are a dime a dozen when it comes to anything relating to air travel. And in the next joke, a passenger’s question got a reply that made him wish he never asked.


With everyone boarded, Barry’s flight got ready for take-off. The plane taxied down the tarmac, but the Boeing 747 suddenly stopped, turned around and returned to the gate.

After a two hour delay, the steward announced that the plane was finally ready for takeoff and 5 minutes later, they were in the air.

Worried about the general excuse they as passengers received for the plane not taking off the first time, Barry asked the steward, “What was the problem?”

“The pilot was bothered by a noise he heard in the engine,” the steward explained. “And it took us a while to find a new pilot.”

In a similar joke of the day, which focused more on falling than flying, two friends decided to start a bungee jumping service in Mexico.

However, they soon found out how a lack of practical experience can foil even the best of plans.
