I was flying Turkish Air from Istanbul to Budapest. I have already commented in a previous post that I find it odd that on this flight English and Turkish are used but no one on the Cabin Crew seems to speak Hungarian.
I was seated in the Emergency Exit aisle. Next to me in the middle and window seats were two gentlemen who spoke only Hungarian.
One of the flight attendants came down for a briefing. She says in Turkish followed by English: “You are aware that you are sitting in the Emergency Exit?”
Middle Seat guy beams at her. Window seat guy says: “No”. She tries again: Are you willing and able to assist the crew in an emergency?“.Middle seat guy continues to smile at her. Window seat guy: “No”.
“If we need to evacuate, you will need to operate this door. “. Clearly not understanding a word, window seat guy says loudly: “yes”. Flustered, she wishes us a good flight and moves on.
