Baghdad, Iraq - According to reports, Pope Francis fulfilled his lifelong dream to be a flight attendant on Friday during his 8-hour trip to Baghdad.
Passengers aboard said the Bishop of Rome delivered an entertaining, tongue-in-cheek safety briefing before working a full shift serving refreshments and snacks.
Despite one altercation with a passenger who insisted on the beef meal over fish, the flight crew's lead trainer gave the Holy Father high praise.
"I can't believe this is his first day," said the instructor. "He was born for this."
Pope Francis called it his life's honor, telling reporters, "I can't think of anything closer to Heaven than serving others at 40,000 feet."
Rumors at The Vatican suggest there is concern among Bishops that the Supreme Pontiff will resign to go to work for Southwest Airlines.
