As an ex cabin crew trainer I take my hat off to the girls and boys on the EK flight for their professionalism under the traumatic circumstances today. Their training is first rate and they should be commended.

I do hope their friends will check out this string.....

The pax were something else and I was mortified watching the cabin video with them retrieving their baggage, as if they had all the time in the world. Then some of them had life jackets dangling from their arms whilst walking across the tarmac.
I'd expect nothing else considering where the flight originated from and I have plenty of experience in that respect; Sorry.....

Well done girls and boys, perhaps EK may not appreciate your professionalism. I most certainly do. Take time off, even though EK may pressurise you to go back on the line. Talk (most importantly) and understand we do care. Aviation is a family where we all have issues at one time or another, yet resolve them as only a family does:-)

Best wishes to all the cabin crew who were responsible for helping passengers evacuate.

Neurologically speaking, the more you talk about your experience the less stressful a memory it will become.

Well done Cabin Crew -loud and clear the instructions just like in training. We practice and practice and hopefully never need to use it but yesterday all that training came into good use saving lives.

I'd like to add my appreciation for the exemplary work done by guys n gals of EK521, who have demonstrated the true worth of cabin crew worldwide.
So often underpaid,overworked,spending hours on their feet,at all times of day and night.
Airline Management so often undervalues these vital members of the team,who,99.9% of their time,wait on us ALL,hand and foot.
This incident demonstrates so well,that they are always prepared to carry out the safety and emergency procedures,necessary to save our lives.....
This is what cabin staff train for....but very rarely have to do....They should get a much better deal.
On my flights,you are always valued....well done..

To the crew of EK521:

What you managed to do under those extremely testing circumstances was absolutely outstanding. You should all be extremely proud of what you achieved and, from what I have seen so far, there are an awful lot of people still alive today because of how you acted.

Thank you.

Are there any Emirates CC here that could comment on EVAC procedures?

They're done in English only?
Under what circumstances would Cabin Crew initiate the Evac themselves?

Well done to all.
The loss of the firefighter is a loss to be remembered as the last act of a brave man.

Hi there and sorry for the very late reply. Basically haven't logged in here since I got the job with EK

As to the evacuation procedures:
1) due to the nature of crew complement and passenger profile only English commands are mandatory. Use of a national language is optional depending on situation, however not recommended, not to confuse other crew members

2) an evacuation can only be initiated my cabin crew in "catastrophic" situation. I.e. Ditching, broken fuselage, fire, imminent smoke thread
As per cabin crew training the main objective states."To whatever situation a trained procedure is not applicable/ can not be used, use common sense and communicate action with senior crew members/ flight deck"
