I’m not sure why I haven’t thought to ask for this before…
A flight from Cyprus to London was delayed 20 hours due to fog, causing 31 students and a teacher to miss school.
So how could this group of 32 get off the hook for playing hookie?
The pilot offered to write absence notes!
According to Travel+Leisure, “in an effort to lighten the mood, Easy Jet pilot , Captain Wayne Mott, offered to write notes to all of the student’s teachers“.
I’m not sure that a pilot’s note from a delayed flight is quite the same as a doctor’s note for being sick, but I do think it’s pretty awesome that the pilot offered to write them- joke or not.
T+L included a note written to one of the students, “I am very sorry that Joshua was not at school today. He has been involved in a secret mission in the Eastern Mediterranean Sea at very short notice. We hope that this mission will soon be complete and that he will see you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed on Tuesday morning.”
I just wonder if each note had a unique message or were all of the students on the secret mission!
