Hello Everyone,

Well, there are more than two massage therapists  Smile

It's a nice service. I experienced it one time...just got a 'Hot Hands' hand massage and a 'Back in the Clouds' neck and shoulder massage. It was pretty decent, nothing you wouldn't get at any decent day spa, but quite a nice gimmick for an airline. My massage therapist was a very sweet girl named Jesminda.

Last time I went Upper Class with VS I had the lower arm and hand massage which was really nice. Lasted about 10-15 minutes. However my partner had the neck/shoulder thing which he said was really good too. The neck/shoulder thing was really popular on our flight (VS001 to EWR) and so I got my arm/hand massage sooner as she was tired of doing shoulders. You sit on a small stool in the nose (A zone???) of the 747 and similar on the A346. Enjoy!

What happens with these therapists in the event of an emergency ?
Do they act like flight attendants, ie are they trained to assist in emergencies or are they treated as passengers

I got a treatment for a manicure in Dubai aboard A346. They were really kind and attentive. On my way to IAD, I prompted for a neck and back rub--which really helped since I had a bad back that day!

Apparently, on each flight the treatments differ.

no they do not differ..it is just that sometimes the country of destination maynot allow oils onboard...so they then havto cancel certain massages ...and sometimes the country of destination may not allow sharp objects like manicure tools...so sometimes ...they have to cancel the manicure...like on my lfight from delhi to london ..they could not do a manicure ..as the security laws at heathrow did not permit it on board...!!

Well on one flight they told me that the neck and scalp massage is not avaiable on this flight (no sharp objects here), but on the next flight the manicure was not available. So, they differ based on what personell they have available, and what onboard things they can carry.

I have to just make a slight correction to this statement. The Inflight Beauty Therapists are recruited as Therapist and must have extensive experience and or training in beauty therapy prior to applying. They go through the same medical, safety, emergency and security training as cabin crew but don't/shouldn't participate in services. In an emergency they can and will act in the same way as main crew.

Thanks for the info...they can take part in the cabin service if they are free..
