A pilot died at the controls of his airplane and went to Hell. The Devil took him to the “new arrivals” zone, where there were three doors marked one, two and three. The Devil said the pilot would be allowed to choose his own hell, but told him to stay where he was for a few minutes while the Devil disappeared to attend to some urgent business.
But the curious pilot couldn’t help looking around in the Devil’s absence. First he peered behind door number one and saw a pilot going through flight checks for all eternity. Then he looked behind number two and saw a pilot forever trying to resolve emergency situations. Finally he looked behind door number three and saw a flight captain being waited on hand and foot by scantily-clad stewardesses.
The Devil returned just as the pilot got back to his waiting position. He offered the pilot a choice between door number one and door number two.
The pilot said: “But I wanted door number three!” “Sorry,” replied the Devil. “That’s flight attendants’ hell.”
