During a recent British Airways flight, superstar actor George Clooney and wife Amal were flying with their six-month old twins, Alexander and Ella.
US Weekly reported that the Clooney’s “gave first-class passengers noise-cancelling headphones“.
While George Clooney has made boatloads of money over his career, some of you might wonder why the actor felt the need to give out noise- cancelling headphones during a flight. No, he wasn’t just being generous…
Along with the headphones, a note was included which had an apology, just in case the twins made some noise during the flight back to the US.
The noise-cancelling headphones (not sure what brand they were) included the logo of Casamigos, Clooney’s tequila brand. Pretty cool! I bet a pair of the headphones along with the note could fetch some good money on Ebay.
The article mentions how Clooney was nervous and the babies didn’t even make any noise during the flight. Director Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction) was onboard the plane and was happy to accept a pair of headphones.
For those of you curious about seeing the note which was included with the headphones, you can do so here.
I’ve heard of parents giving out little notes with some candy (or something along those lines) to fellow passengers on flights, but I can’t say that I’ve ever heard of noise-cancelling headphones being given out before.
What do you think- should parents of infants and young children give out small gifts/ apologize in advance to fellow passengers during a flight? I’d say no.
