First of all, your Subject was very vague. One would have no clue what you meant. And please, TURN OFF THE CAPS LOCK!

Anyways, here it goes...

1.) The Pursur, or head flight attendant on board, usually makes the anoounments.

2.) The Purser usually takes First or Business Class.

F/A jumpseats are assigned because each F/A position (A, B, C etc) has specific responsibilities during an evacuation, ditching, or other emergency.

I can't seem to remember any A,B,C announcement. At our airline the Purser usually does the announcements in English and the route language if they know it, if not then another onboard F/A that is language qualified will complete the announcments in the route language. Also, yes it certainly matters where we sit as each position has different responsibilities as Exnonrev mentioned. Our positions not only determine our emergency procedures but our service rows, galley position, safety equipment responsibilities, pre-departure inspections, and even which of us gets to serve the flight deck EEEK!!

Maybe you could clear up the A,B,C thing it would help things a lot!


Emergency! Keep your head down, stay down!!

Are the postitons assigned prior to the flight for that day, or do they flight attendants pick up the trip where they have an assigned position?

With us, F/A positions in the crew (and by consequence - similar to the way C3000flyboy explained it - on the jumpseats) are assigned during the pre-flight briefing. Although this is usually done according to seniority, the purser may choose to distribute the numbers as (s)he wishes.

I hope that helps. Mind you, different airlines may have different approaches to the matter.

Best regards,
