Wouldn't surprise me at all! Certainly not with all the backstabbing and power madness that's going on down there!

Heard a young ish captain who works for my company talking to some of our crew. Wasn't involved in the conversation myself, apparantly it was his little sis who was the attackee, cut to face, black eye. Don't know if there is any artistic licence, it certainly didn't sound like it. Utterly utterly sickening.

Sacked a 100 times, that would be a light punishment for that, those sort of people need weeding out of society.

That would certainly make a nice script for a B horror movie

Just make a simple calculation...80-90h block/month x how many months you worked there...i'm sure can't be such a big story..an employer knows if somebody is true or lying. You joined Wizz?

Not Wizz but Tarom, the national carrier. The problem is that they want an official paper from Ek stating the number of flying hours....

Ok. Usally, this information is available for print out in your Aims/ roster program...but as you're no longer with the company...you can only try to cantact the welfare dept at Ek and ask them if they still have your records. If they do, it should be easy to send it to you. It's the only thing i can think about, i hope you sort it out and good luck with Tarom.

Cu sanatate,

Just a question for Emirates Cabin Crew. My partner has flown Emirates economy class Brisbane to Auckland five times over the last 2 years and every flight there has been no tea/coffee service carried out, due to "Turbulence". When in fact there was none. She's fairly certain that on the return leg there has been a tea/coffee service. Could you please confirm that this is due to time constraints on cabin service. Not a complaint, just like to know the reason.

Mr Wooby,

Before the flight, the flight deck receive a weather report telling them of any thunderstorms, wind speeds etc etc on route to the destination.
They can see in advance if an area appears to look as if there may be any turbulence during the flight.
The cabin crew are then briefed by the pilots before we board that, for example, 3 hours into the flight, there may be bumps.
The seatbelt sign is then turned on by the flightdeck 3 hours into the flight as a precaution.
Most of the time there are no bumps at all; the weather has changed whilst we were in the air, conditions are fine. However, if the pilots didn't put the signs on despite the fact that they knew that turbulence may occur, we could then be liable for not telling people to secure themselves.
We do not serve tea/coffee/hot liquids during times of turbulence, whether it appears to be bumpy or not... all it takes is one sudden bump and pax have got burns all over them.
If no tea coffee was served 5 times then unfortunately it was all just a coincidence.
(but you can always ask for one once the sign has gone off)
Having said all that.......
our proceedures changed recently, and it now up to the captain's discretion as to whether we are allowed to serve hot liquids when the seat belt sign is on.

Flight Hours calculation after resignation

V. interesting question however don't think you'll have much luck having resigned.Once you've signed all on the pink form you're a number and hours flown is down to you ie production of your roster stamped and signed by your manager????

Crew Member injured in EKHQ Ceiling Displacement

Any news on the unfortunate girl who tumbled down the escalator having been hit by a ceiling tile. Terrible rumours that she's in a coma. Are the rumours true.

Turbulence - tea/coffe service

Just to clarify that its not up to the Captain but with his intervention and the Purser's discretion that the above is being served. If the SFS felt it was absolutely unsafe to serve tea/coffee service then they must document same with the Purser's say-so!!!

Rich Dubai Flirts With Hard Times, But Its Airline Is Still Flying High

PBR: Very enjoyable article. So, this is the perception which the outside world have of us. I must admit, depending what way one chooses to look at it, it is true. At least it is a thick layer of gloss and shine covering some of the less glamorous aspect to our job.

Hey, nearly a month since the last post, you guys must be very busy doing the LRC "Journey through India".

Any feedback from any one who has done the flights?, do customers like the new product?, c'mon, share your experiences and tell us what is going on up there in the friendly skies .

Greetings !!!

Sy-o-nara NGO, Hello DUR

Hey guys. Apparently flights to NGO are going to be suspended from 29th March 2009 due to escalating operating costs/falling revenue on the route.
DUR is set to commence in October this year.
