Don't be silly. Tray Surfer said "crew permitting". This means that he/she would only request this if there are surplus crew to requirements. Nobody, including the captain, would allow it if this were not the case.
The 747 has 12 doors and 14 cabin crew. Are you saying that if a crew member went sick immediately before departure then they would be in "wanton violation" of CAA regulations if they were to depart with 13 crew?

Edit; Sorry, crossed with Tray Surfer
