Now that I'm retired, I can say this. If I were a passenger and heard someone threaten to kill everyone? I'd say jump up and restrain them. (Kick their butt) The FAs would probably thank you. She...

Hi there. About oversized luggage. FAs are required to use company approved luggage. Though in some cases, on especially long trips, itís a larger bag or an extra piece of luggage. At NWA, we had...

I remember years ago, US Air had a passenger get off the plane who was drunk. That passenger then drove and killed someone. I want to say New Mexico, but I'm not sure. I believe, at the time, US Air...

I'm sorry. I looked, but must have missed it. I normally wouldn't have posted this, but I've read others posts of never having flown on a '47. I just thought it might give a chance for regular...

747-400 substitution

An A330 is going in for a 30 day maintainance check this month. I understand a 747-400 is going to be used on DTW-AMS for a bit. It might be a chance for some to get a last chance ride before they're...

I've never heard of a passenger being sued for helping out a crew member. After 9/11, we were told to expect help from the passengers and don't be afraid to ask.

I have to admit, I'm a little bummed about not training or working the plane. I like that "new" plane smell. ;)

This whole incident has nothing to do with Delta. If the FA knew he was a wanted criminal, there many places he could have disappeared to. This all involves an ex trying to get even. I've seen it...

I was reading through the comments. It doesn't seem that too many females are posting.

I'm surprised to hear checking water levels are part of any FAs preflight check. We did that decades ago on planes no longer flying.

Even when I was still flying, that practiced had stopped. A...

I don't know. I tried pass travel after I retired and the flats were full. Most of the domestic flying requires connecting through ATL. My target cities are LAX and NYC. My international flying is...

We do have travel benefits, but not worth it if you need to be somewhere. Retirees are the last to board a flt. As it should be. I've heard of talk that retirees should get better travel bennies. I...

Why bless your heart! Feeling better? I won't discuss that both groups had representatives to decide seniority order. The most fair thing was to go by date of hire.

No. Joan started at Hughes Airwest, merged with Republic, merged with Northwest Orient (Northwest Airlines), and then merged with Delta.

You are correct. I once witness it happen. The FA involved mixed it up with an FAA agent doing a flight check. Opening her yap cost her $10,000. It didn't help that she was totally wrong with what...

Yes, you are correct. Not everything goes according to plan. I've had people get up to use the lav as we're rolling for takeoff. At that point, the next safest place is the lav hanging on. It used to...

After 9/11, a lot of the common sense went out the window. Passenger planes were hijacked and killed thousands of people. So, the country went nuts. TSA, Homeland Security, more FAA regs and policy...
