Have you read about the Excellence Awards from FI (now Flight Global) at Asian Airspace 2006 ?

One of the best stories of the year had to be what must be called a 'heroic effort' brilliantly put forth by the cabin crew of AF358.

A nice moment this must have been:

M. Fautrel's most deserving moment (http://www.flightglobal.com/Articles/2006/02/24/Navigation/177/205099/Standing+ovation+for+Air+France+Airbus+A340+Toronto+overrun. html)

Nice to read about some positive people news in the industry :)

Despite all the training in the world it's not until it's for real that you will know if you're made of the right stuff. This AF crew were and they deserve the praise and recognition. As an aviation professional and a frequent SLF, I salute them.

Mr Fautrel and his crew indeed made the Cabin Attendants of the world proud of their profession.

May I suggest a Pprune standing ovation too - shall I lead the way?

*stands and claps/cheers*

Nice work to the crew on that fateful day :ok:

More importantly, use it to resist attemps to reduce cabin/crew pax ratios.

That's me on my feet too.

I can very well remember last August - at first it was difficult to imagine the "inevitable" (images seen on TV) and then when they announced (late at night) that everyone got out, that was the best news ... since a long time. Thank you!
