Purple Passport: All female cabin crew and hungry travellers

What money can’t buy? It’s not an all girl cabin crew.

You’ve got bags of money, you play for one of the most famous football teams in the world, and you’ve got it all, don’t you? Well it turns out there are still some crazy demands to be made out there.
The Barcelona football team has requested an all-female crew for its flights, but claim it’s not for the reasons you might thing. The club says the players prefer to be served by ladies, because male cabin crew are just too interested in their skills.
Barcelona’s sponsors, Turkish Airlines say male staff on flights are just too interested in the boys’ ball skills and so they’ve been given a red card because of their ‘extreme interest.’ The airline will hand pick the all-female crew from now on.

A cup of garlic and a cannoli dammit

We’ve two stories this week of travellers in foreign lands doing dubious things with food. First up eater.com reports a French man, who had a few too many and broke into a Florida Italian restaurant. Did he go for the cash register? Nope, he stopped short at the cupboard and at a cup of raw chopped onions. As you do.
Then there’s the story of an Irishman, who was so excited about Boston’s Italian pastries that he headed straight for a bakery on his first morning in the US. At 3.30 am, brandishing a knife, the man entered the premises and demanded a traditional pastry called a cannoli. Police were called and he was arrested before being granted bail at $2,000. Wouldn’t it have just been easier to buy one?

Lost: one camera underwater

The Mirror is trying to reunite a family with their lost camera after it was found at the bottom of the sea! A diver, Mark Milburn recovered the camera 30ft underwater off the Cornwall coast and was stunned to discover it was still working.
He found over 800 family snaps, some of which were dated just two days before. They also feature pictures of Star Wars theme park show, a steam train and some dolphins. We hope it can be reunited with its owner soon.
