It has been a year now since September 11th, and I would just like to pause and remember the lives lost that day, the families and friends touched by the tragedy, and the impact it had on our nation. We all in this forum share a love for commercial aviation, and this topic is just to reflct how 9/11 affected somthing that each of us hold to our hearts, our beloved airline industry. Feel free to express your feelings and share your words.

I would like to personally remember and honor fellow Flight Attendants who lost their lives. God Bless you and you will always be in my heart. To all of my flying parters at any airline, anywhere around the globe, lets keep doing what we do best, taking wonderful care of our customers and spreading our wings all over the world.

Take Care everyone!

I feel that we should take a few moments to remember the crews of the four airplanes that slammed into the WTC and the Pentagon. In the media-induced craze following 9-11, and the ensuing adoration for the NYC firefighters and policemen, the flight attendants and flight crew of the 4 airplanes appeared to have been forgotten. In their roles as the first line of defense against the hijackers of the death planes, they were also the first victims. People seem to forget that the men and women who comprised the crew on those airplanes were just as brave and just as resilient as any firefighter, any policeman, or any soldier could be.

I don't think anybody has been forgotten since this horrid day, how could you say that? This day took the lives of thousands of men, women and children alike, flight attendants, pilots, civilians. It is all of equal loss of horrible, horrible proportions. Nobody on that day will be forgotten. God Bless the victims, families, and America on this 1 year anniversary...

Is anyone able to post here the names or photos of the crew who died on 9/11 - we can make this posting a memorial to them.

Our thoughts are with all those family and friends effected directly or indirectly.

This is what Rod Eddington sent out to us at British Airways last week:

It is approaching the anniversary of the tragic terrorist attacks in the United States and we are planning to mark September 11 in several ways.

All staff are invited to observe one minute’s silence at 1.46pm (UK local time) on Wednesday September 11 to coincide with the moment’s silence in New York at 8.46am (local time). Staff in airport terminals and those based in office buildings are asked to pause and observe the silence as a mark of respect.

None of our aircraft engines at any UK station will start up during the period 1.45pm to 1.48pm (UK local time).

Flags at British Airways offices and terminal buildings in the UK and US will be lowered to half-mast.

The City of New York is to hold a memorial from 8.46am (local US time) to 10.30am (local US time) and out of respect, both of our Concorde flights will be re-timed that day.

Please ensure that everyone in your area is advised accordingly and arrangements made as necessary.

On behalf of everyone at British Airways, I will be contacting our friends and colleagues at both American Airlines and United Airlines to personally let them know that our thoughts are with them during what must be a difficult time.

Finally, I know that this has been an extremely tough time for the people of British Airways during our ongoing task to rebuild and revive the airline in the light of the effects of the attacks on our business. Let me offer my thanks to everyone for your continuing efforts.

In order to make an act of remembrance significant, surely you must first be allowed to forget. The impact of Sept 11 has been so great that no-one's had the chance to let it sink in to the point where remembrance takes on the meaning that it should. If we're not careful, we'll end up sinking into a mire of perpetual Sept 11 reminders and never be allowed to move on.

Incidentally while I appreciate that this is an aviation forum, I'm not sure that we should be focusing solely on the aircrews and passengers involved. The vast majority of people who lost their lives a year ago were ordinary office workers and emergency services personnel. I wonder how many of them anyone here can name without having to look them up first?

Just a thought.

I cannot help but notice that everyone else from passengers to firefighters were made heros in the media - barely any attention was given to the crew of the fatal flights.

I really wish that the President of the United States, Mayor Guilliani ( sp) and /or the media would hold crews in as high regard as those who have been honored publicly.

Please visit www.flightattendants.org to read about and see the picutres of my fallen commrades.

I send my prayers and respect to ALL of the souls who perished.
