Why not! I think that would be a hoot! Just make sure it says "Gary" on it.


What's the one thing you get asked alot that really annoys you?

Is this your route? On more levels than you can imagine.


What requests do the really savvy pax make that most don't know about?

Nothing, really! The savvy pax is the best pax. They are more likely to be on their cell phones the moment the you know what hits the fan. They get angry less about things like weather. The most savvy passengers. NYC, Boston, and DCA business travelers.

btw, I echo want others have already said: great idea for a thread

I still think that since US Airways is an American carrier with an English-speaking crew, the exit row passengers must be able to speak, read, and understand English. They are supposed to read the seatback card, be able to follow oral commands given by the crew, and give the FA a verbal yes (In English, I think!) that they understand their responsibility.
You are correct Professeur Beth! US flag carriers require that passengers seated in the exit row speak, read and understand English. F/As assess this at the exit row during boarding.

That came as part of another quote. I'm not an egomaniac. See post 42. GaryZ said that.

The wheelchair is provided....and that is all. I have never seen an F/A actually assist in the tranferrence to chair or lav as it is not a part of the duties (I don't think, but I'm confused by the new transfer board)

I have used it once in 21 years. The person was pretty capable.

I've looked at the wheelchair once, it looked sort of capable.
