Poorly I imagine, he was busy making up the meals and bedding then breakfast for the crew.

Maybe it’s like one of those management role reversal dinners, where the bosses serve the staff. But in...

Could you explain that by deciding before you had taken the flight that it was going to be a bad one and asking for advice on how to deal with it, how that fits the definition of ‘optimistic’ and...

Ah excellent. Another ‘let’s trash Mixed Fleet thread’. Oh wait a sec, this one is a bit different - it’s a ‘lets trash Mixed Fleet before I’ve even taken the flight’ thread!

If you’re young, attractive and female and the rest of the cabin aren’t, then I imagine you won’t get too many complaints if you do it in the middle of the cabin. Presumably the same applies if the...

Actually it wasn’t me that said ‘you raise it with no-one’. Also, as a point of pedantry, the OP did say it was a Mixed Fleet route which would mean it would have been a CSM rather than a CSD, though...

So, despite not being there and not interacting with the passenger like the CC did, you’ve come to the conclusion that the investigation was ‘cursory and ineffective’? Impressive!

Don’t get the wrong idea, 380 First is very pleasant indeed!!! New planes, much quieter, and better IFE than the 747. Any seat is lovely, but I would just choose different ones than if I were on a...
