Blanket Confessions

Ok, admit it. You've stolen airline blankets before - pretended they were complimentary like the eye masks. Slipped it in your carry-on. I know I have. Two small blue blankets have adorned my bed at home for years - one stolen from United Airlines back in 2002, the other from British Airways back in 2003. I love them. Money couldn't buy them.
Anyways, some loser (aka 'repentant passenger') has returned a blanket he 'accidently' stole from Korean Air. With an apology note. And this made the news here. Sweet jesus. Read all about it then 'fess up and tell me which blankets you stole from which airlines. Yeahhh.

I can see the attraction, they are so thin, but so warm. I've never taken one, but I have racked up a couple of pillows and some nuts.

I must be some sort of pure soul (not!) as I have never stolen an airline blanket. I resolve to change this on my next flight!

I stole a couple of singapore airlines blankets back in '99. Then had a flash of genius in 2002 on a thai air flight and decided to take another couple to sew into a pair of pants, intending the big 'thai' inscription to be a feature down the side leg... but when it came to sewing it turned out that the quality of the fabric that gave it the shimmery shiny space blanked effect meant that it was impossible to hold two pieces together and feed them through a machine. I think fashion will be thankful for that.
