Flight 80

Keep your fingers crossed folks this leaves on time.

Back in the FL. Busier obviously and tables need to bussed.

You've entered British airspace and should be on the ground early.

landed. 15 minutes early.

77 and sunny here at LHR.

some notable quotes from the flight attendants

1. “Doubles?! I don’t do doubles”
2. “We’re down 2 flight attendants”
3. Went to the loo on my side it was occupied so I proceeded to walk through the galley “sir! You cannot cross through the galley!”
4. When my entire meal (salad, starter and entree) were plopped down in front of me on one tray I asked “when did the course by course change?” She says “oh on the later flights it’s always been this way”. LOL pathetic.

Oh now we’re 10 minutes late. We’ve been waiting for a gate.

🙃

also the steak was inedible.

Wow, that's so very unfortunate. As has been discussed before, AAL has such an inconsistent overseas product.

To which my answers would have been

1. Make it a triple then
2. Down What?
3. The only things crossed are my legs
4. Have you actually flown post Covid or is this because you are two FAs down and you’re taking it out on us?

The one thing with which one cannot argue is whether « later » flights do get that sort of one tray service or not as I for one have not been on that service.

You are far more tolerant than me.

Most of that is quite disappointing, but not a total shock. Nonsense about not crossing galleys is downright weird! I hope at least they boarded half the passengers from R2 to avoid getting vapourised crossing any galleys.

Unhappy flight crews will pick the damnedest random things as confrontation points. The next crew will order you to walk through the galley.

And does anyone REALLY wonder why I finally left AA?

If it were a symphony, it would be “Variations on a theme by The Association of (un) Professional Flight Attendants.”. I have/had gotten the same but different attitude over and over and over again, at premium fares over the competition.commuting to CDG, hubbing through lhr, and flying through AMS, FRA, and MAD and training to Paris.

My sincere condolences to Skylady, and other rare, great, AA personnel, who have to be unfairly lumped in with the donkey dust.

so i was yelled at for walking through the galley as well years ago. really gave me a bad taste in my mouth for years. just flew J to paris and back, the only way to go to the loo on the other side of the plane is to go through the galley there is no other way. Kinda wondering when my apology is coming. that being said I had the best flight attendant I have ever had on the way to paris, helpful funny, man I thought I was flying private.

I wish I got his name because if anyone deserves kudos he does.

I didn't want to ask his name when we were leaving because I felt like it would be a bit forward but now I wish I had because I can't give someone a great review to aa if I don't know their name.

You could always send in an email/DM on Twitter and include as much information as you can... date, flight number, cabin, description of him, where you were sitting (if he was in your area), etc, and they can match that to him.

YMMV, and probably does.

On the Other Hand, I just subscribed to “Enviroian’s AAirline Nightmares” Executive Platinum service. 😇 (Sarcasm)
