Thanks for your answer.

Sorry to be daft though, but do you mean 2 crew plus one SCCM? 3 in total? or 3 crew plus 1 SCCM?

If it is 3 in total, is it not a requirement for at least one crew member per door?

Hi Crewbus,
On the 737, there are 3 crew in total, 2 juniors and 1 sccm. It is a requirement for one crew member per 50 pax. The 737's that EZY have left have 149 seats.

Thanks Offstand.

I always thought it was a requirement for all aircraft doors to be covered, but then there are different rules and regs for each country.

How does the arming/disarming procedure work? Who arms and cross checks the 4th door?

From memory, the sccm sits up front on their own and the other two down the back. It has probably changed since I left, but it used to happen that when the a/c pulled on stand and seat belt signs switched off, the sccm would make the PA 'cabin crew prepare doors for arrival and cross check'. The two at the back would disarm the doors and cross check with each other. The number 2 would then ring the senior to confirm the doors are in manual and cross checked. The sccm would reply that both front doors are disarmed.

You need a crew member by each door for widebody aircraft, but on the 737 you just need one crew member per 50 seats ie. 3 crew.

Not only is it 1 crew member per 50 pax, It's also 1 crew member per set of floor level exits! So door 1L/1R and door 2L/2R. The ovewing isn't classed as a floor level exit.

EZYChick.. When is your sccm course?

I waited 6 months for my SCCM course date, and I know of one crew member who actually had to wait 13 months!!!!!

I'm just alone waiting over three months for my interview...just because the office is 'over-worked'...and because they lost my application once...

I guess it's worth it after you made it there...that's what I hope anyway ;-)

The enhanced sector pay makes it worth it

Seriously though, I am having so much more fun since I became SCCM. Flying as a junior was good, but we have all worked with SCCM's who have a strange idea about how to do things, and those few would spoil the day for you.

But when you are the SCCM, you set the mood for the day and you determine how things will be run. Also, the pilots do give you a lot more respect when you are up the front which also makes for a more enjoyable day

Yep.

I'm not saying the money isn't a consideration but if I'm brutally honest I'm really just looking forward to move on and take on a bit more responsibilty. I probably would do without the money. But don't tell them please ;-)

And I guess you are right when you say as the SCCM you set the mood for the day...

I never had any problems with any pilots anyway. I think we are a good base like that...I think we all think as a team. The pilots get the respect they deserve, and so do we. Lot's of pilots come out and give as a hand during the turn around, collecting rubbish, emptying toilet bin, make us a cup of tea for a change and so on.
It might help that we all take the mickey out of each other ;-)

BRS as a base most certainly felt understaffed during summer...but that was probably the same everywhere.

However, they were recruiting for BRS pretty much continuously until very recently. So I guess that means we are properly 'staffed up' now.

And there is still SCCM interviews going on...don't know if they are still advertising for direct entry SCCM anymore though.

If transfers are available....don't honestly know...now that you are a SCCM and they still need SCCM you probably would be fine.

It's a good base...most days anyway ;-)

Hi EzyChich,

congratulations to your promotion!!
I have my interview coming up next week and was wondering if you could tell me a bit about your interview. I am really worried about mine. Thanks.

Hi all with regards to BRS, the recruitment team are still recruiting for there and have just finished an open day in BRS, don't know how many they hired as i did go. For your interest we have now stopped recruiting for LTN (unless they are direct entry SCCM, anyone fancy a move?!) and we are also recruiting for EDI,NCL,LPL,STN,LGW,SFX,MXP,DTM all other bases are closed for recruitment as far as i know this does change frequently!! As far as direct entry SCCM go they cannot apply as one but have to be reccomended by the recruitment team if they meet the right criteria, are right for the role, and there are spaces available at their chosen base, otherwise they have to work their way up like the rest of us! so they do have to really shine in their assesment day. Some do but many don't!
Hope this info is useful

Hi Guys

There has been a email in LTN asking FA's if they want to go dual rated for the summer so then they can be night stopped all over the airbus network (which will probably end up being MAD as apparently 70 of the crew down there are still waiting on ID's).
So I can see whats coming, FA's while go dual rated and be night stopping were ever from LTN, leaving us at LTN short for summer and boeing rated guys across the network will end up in LTN.
