Idol Chatter

Officials at Nepal’s state-run airlines are certainly “thinking outside the box” when it comes to battling the plague of problems—late flights, older planes—affecting the airline industry. Or maybe we should say, thinking outside the pen.
Reuters reports that Nepal Airlines “sacrificed two goats to appease Akash Bhairab, the Hindu sky god, following technical problems with one of its Boeing 757 aircrafts.” The disabled plane, which is one of only 10 the airline owns, was causing troubling service delays.
Reportedly, the technical problem is now fixed and the flights are running on time. The work of a gearhead or god? You decide.
While I’m not so big on animals sacrifices myself, I’ll gladly make a sacrifice of fine wine or the most expensive caviar, or my favorite cupcakes, to get a flight to arrive on time and with my luggage.
