But, couldn't the FA have even handed the poor woman some paper towels, or better yet, an extra shirt?
I agree that the paper towels probably could have been given, but just where would this extra shirt come from?
Don't airlines keep generic "one-size-fits-all" promotional "Blahblah Airlines" T-shirts on hand, for situations like this one?
Wow, live and learn! I had no idea about this!
I didn't know for sure, I just assumed they would, I mean, wouldn't some people want to buy them anyway, as souvenirs and whatnot? And besides, haven't there been enough vomiting incidents where it'd make sense to do it? It'd be good advertising, anyway. Someone could ask, "Hey, where'd you get that cool Blahblah Airlines T-shirt?"; and then the woman could have replied, "Well, the nice flight attendants gave it to me when my son threw up all over me on the airplane." Then, the first person would be more inclined to fly Blahblah Airlines. Now, imagine if three different people saw the woman wearing the T-shirt in one day, and she told the anecdote to all of them, and they each went home and told their families?
