The new Canadian boss inherited the baby , and decided ( wisely say some insiders) to stop the experiment. The CC will most probably be integrated into AF ( so the rumor goes) The only ones that benefit from that are the painters. The decision to stop was not as the title of this thread suggest, due to the downturn , but rather to a management decision to standardize. .
With the greatest respect to the Cabin Crew how much money was going to be saved by the use of "cheaper" CC?.
