Whenever we fly, we always see our cabin crew do safety demos. It is actually a very important part which apparently, many passengers disregard. For what reason are safety instructions disregarded? Well we would not know exactly why but we think that either first, passengers know it by heart or second, they do not take safety seriously which may be alarming.
A deaf passenger shares his experience with a PAL Express flight attendant after the latter used basic sign language in order to ask if the former wants water or coffee. The passenger who owns the viral video by the name of Kyle Fortaleza Haj, said that they were happily surprised that the flight attendant named Anita Generosa Ygona knows basic sign language.
Move over everyone, these little flight attendants are on their way to catch their flights! Since tomorrow is international cabin crew day 2018, we now bring you a compilation of pictures of our little FAs! These photos were submitted to us before and we are reposting them for everyone's bucket of cuteness!
This May 31, we are celebrating International Cabin Crew Day 2018, a day where we recognize the efforts and dedication of our flight attendants and stewards in being the safety professionals in the air. We also call it world cabin crew appreciation day, where all passengers could show some appreciation to their hardworking cabin crew.
A Saudia Airbus A330-200 made an emergency landing at Jeddah's King Abdulazis International Airport last Tuesday, May 22 due to a malfunction on the front landing gear. All 141 passengers and 10 crew members were evacuated however, 50 passengers suffered minor injuries.
The cases of unruly passengers have been on the rise lately. These include drunk passengers, or those who simply defy the authority of their flight crew. Some passengers doesn't really bother about thinking of the safety and security of other fellow passengers and crew members. Well, this will soon be changing as a passenger was forced to pay up to $100,000 or close to Php 5,200,000 for his unruly behavior on board.
When it comes to airline safety policies and regulations, no one is exempted. Not even age nor career/calling is considered. This was what happened last May 10 when a 69-year old priest disobeyed his cabin crew on putting his hand carry under the seat and cracked a statement regarding a bomb. This eventually led to his arrest and temporary detention, which all resulted to a 4-hour delay, inconveniencing hundreds of passengers.
Filipino Passenger Claiming to be a United Airlines Cabin Crew Fails to Have Flight Steward Lift His Luggage
Is he really a United Airlines cabin crew, or not? It was reported that a Filipino passenger, built, able, and around 5'7" in height, demanded his flight steward to lift his luggage unto the overhead compartment, but apparently, the flight steward was able to decline the demand in a very professional manner. This prompted the passenger to claim that he is a cabin crew of United Airlines.
So you board the aircraft and you are lead to your seat by the cabin crew. You stow your luggage and take your seat. Then right when the aircraft door is closed and armed, you noticed that there are quite a number of blank seats in the middle area, and you are at the back with other passengers, all cramped. You are thinking of moving forward where you have the whole row to yourself. Then just as you inform the cabin crew that you want to take the vacant seats, the crew informs you that you can only change seats when the aircraft is in the air and that they will have to inform the pilots first. Why? What's the difference between now and later?
Often when we hear the words "party in the air" we usually think of an aviation theme or a party in a private aircraft, a party at the top of a very tall building, or flight attendants dancing in the aisle. Well last year, Delta Airlines held a party in the air, literally! Yes, when we mean party, we mean booze, a DJ, light sticks, dance music, and people dancing, all these at 30,000ft! It was not just also some ordinary party, it was a Silent Disco at 30,000ft!
