Most stupid question – Henry Durrant, firstly, for asking if he could speak to the pilot on the plane to find out what was taking so long. Secondly, for his comments at breakfast that included “is this French milk?” and the he asked the waitress “are these eggs raw or cooked” the waitress responded “no they are raw you have to cook them at your table” Henry responded “really, that’s amazing”
