I have seen it myself, my friends an co-workers tell me about it and
i can read in different forums about it...

"The cabin crew served the meal and then disappeared for the rest of the flight".

"I asked for a glass of water but the female cabin crew asked me to get it myself from the galley".

"I pressed the button for cabin crew but they just turned it off".

"I found the cabin crew in the galley talking about how bad it was to work for the airline".

"The cabin crew never smiled and you could not get eye contact".

OK!
Everyone can have a bad day.
And as a passenger do you sit for hours and maybe watch the crew to much...
But it seems to me that many people who work onboard a aircraft do not have
"fun" and maybe want to be somewhere else.
Maybe is it not PC to give to much of yourself and then get enemies by other crew members...(?)

Yes they can, but as the worker/employee, don't bring it to or show it at work.

What else are they going to do. I people watch on the plane too. You should see what people do.

If they don't want to have"fun", they should get a new job. Whether you like it or not, being crew means being in the spotlight for all the good, bad and ugly.

Most of us, do have "fun" and enjoy immensely what we do.

Of the many flights I've taken, I can't complain too much about cabin crew behavior.

I can think of one bad apple on an airline I had flown.
An attractive female F/A invited me to the rear galley to have a conversation. Well her co-worker kept butting in our conversation about non-work related gossip. His conversation with her could have waited. The lady F/A obviously liked a lot so her co-worker shouldn't have butted in unless it was work related. He was being such a Prima Donna or Diva if you will..
This was on a repositioning flight between Chicago and San Francisco on a 747-400.
Well there was a small possibility that we were going to land n Sacramento because there was barley enough fuel to SFO and there was an alternate flight path due to whether. There was uncertainty if we were going to make it to SFO.
Well this male Prima Donna F/A was almost throwing a temper tantrum in the rear galley and telling everyone on the plane his personal business. He was acting as if the world was going to come to and end if he didn't meet his boyfriend in San Francisco that day.
Nobody likes being diverted or delayed but my goodness, why does everyone in the last 15 rows of a 747 need to know about his lover and his sexual appetite?
Please don't read this as anti-gay because I am not. This male F/A was waaaaay over doing it and didn't need to share his dilemma with 50+ other passengers. We're all on the same plane.
The plane did land in SFO after so I am sure there was a happy ending to all of this.

I think it depends on the airline. I can think of many Euro Lo-Co's wehre the employees are bullied at every level, and then proceed to bully the passengers, etc, etc. One Lo-Co, in perticular, is appalling, I really connot see why everyone has to bully, shout at and be rude to eachother. We all want to get to where we are going. But form the attitude Ive seen on more and more flights, Im thinking we will see a pplXpress in the next five years.

Yet, there are many airlines lambasted, on here (bmi group springs to mind), yet the crews are generally fantastic. I was on a WW flight yesterday, nd the No.1 spend a good bit of time speaking to a nervous passenger, and the passengers around. She was saying how much she enjoyed her job, and it was "the best job Ive ever had". She was honest, and said its bloody hard work. But she loves comming to work. It showed.

Just my thoughts.
Brian.

Maybe if the Cabin Crew got paid what they wanted, they would be nicer.....  Smile

Sad, but if you don't like where they are, leave. Simple. But for most of us, it is in our blood and we put up with a lot to have fun and enjoy what we do (and we don't have that much to put up with).

Case in point.

Any job is going to be what you make it, if you love your job it is that much easier to do each and every day. There is a reason though that work is a four letter word to some people.
