Wonder how their company felt about it when it went on the net? It's all fun and games until someone has a video camera and it ends up on the net, just ask Paris, and Pam and ...

only the French..

Imagine this in the US, the whole crew would be sacked immediately..

The French just have a much more open and relaxed attitude. We can just imagine what went on once the camera was switched off

Thumbs up Translate?

Hmmm, I wonder if I should ask my francophone wife to translate? OK, I'll let you know what she says.

Icarus, perhaps this was the result of a slow insidious depresurisation (hypoxia???).

Reminds me of an incident where a bored pilot put it on autopilot, walked up the back of his 15 seater and took a panoramic video of the aircraft. Was all fun and games until the footage fell into the wrong hands and ended up on display at a travel and leisure expo in a promotional video! No worries you say? until the local casa inspector walked past and almost saw it...

Ahhhhhh! Memories!!!!!!! , Back in the good old days , the Flight Engineer usually organised this sort of Cockpit entertainment . Generally using his finely honed skills of being able to pick a "Raver" in every cabin crew. The 747 "Classic" luckily had a little more flight deck space thus allowing much more "Self Expression" . Nevertheless ,its obvious in this clip that Capt "Pierre" managed to control his drooling in true command style. Priceless!!!!!!!!!!

Very educational, but what is she actually demonstrating, her life preservers?

That first woman - the one writing early on in the clip - she's a dead ringer for Emma Thompson...

If someone did that in my office...

However, clearly a bit of fun, but IMHO, getting the camera out is really inviting a cup of tea witout biccies.

Talking Translation

My translating wife reckons it may have been her last flight anyway from what she said early on in the video on the ground (audio was pretty hard to decipher and my wife just didn't seem as keen to watch as me... go figure).

Agree that nothing terribly illegal really happened. Maybe a breach of company protocol.. oh wait, no; they're frogs so probably nothing untoward here
