After landing, there is usually an announcement to the likes of, "Flight attendants, prepare for arrival, cross-check, and stand-by for all call." What exactly does "stand-by for all call" mean?

Perhaps he's forwarning them of the heavy loads that would be encountered back to the homebase? Big grin

I dunno what the "stand-by" means, but on FL we say "Flight Attendants prepare for arrival, cross-check and all-call." Which is said after the gate agent pulls the jetway up and knocks on the door. The "cross-check" is when the F/A disarms thier nearest door and all-call means the other F/As in the cabin announce that "cross-check is complete" indicating thier door is disarmed.

I may be wrong but I believe "cross-check" is when the f/a's check the other door across from the door the just disarmed as to make sure the other f/a responsible for that door did it correctly.

It means to prepare for an all-call on the aircraft interphone. Often the flight attendants in each area of the aircraft (usually on larger planes) will call conference momentarily on the phone with the lead F/A to verify doors are disarmed after arrival (or the opposite at departure time), which door will be used for deplaning, etc.

Basically, standby for the interphone to ring...

Isn't there another one that tells the flight attendants that the cabin is depressurized and they can open the doors?

Procedures vary by airline. Not all do the "all-call." Some just disarm the doors, others disarm then announce it over the public address such as "2L and R."

For example, the various "dings" heard in the cabin and sometimes the colored lights in the ceiling panel near jumpseats vary in function between carriers. A good case is the Delta Connection carriers.... I believe the number of dings ASA uses to signal an evacuation means something relatively benign on Comair, or vice-versa.

with ATC, to stand-by means to wait for the controller to call you back, but to not change fequencies or let your atention stray from what you were trying to accomplish.

Ok, so let me just add on something here... On all my Continental 737 flights, I've heard this announcements:

"Flight attendants prepare doors for departure, cross check verify straps"

Verify straps??

There is a red flag/strap that is placed across the window on the exit to indicate the door is armed. This would prevent outsiders from opening the door and popping a slide. This is my best guess as to what the CO announcement means....

"Verify straps" at CO means to check that the restraining strap is NOT hanging outside of the door. This is the yellow strap ths is placed across the doorway when it is open and not to be used.

I think verify straps means to place the red/orange strap across the door viewing window to warn that the door is armed.

Not to start an A vs. B argument, but airbus has a built in indicator in the door. A red light flashes to warn that the door is armed when you lift the door control handle and a seperate light illuminates to warn that the cabin is pressurized and the door shouldn't be opened.

Prepare for arrival:
Disarm doors, which actually means to set the evacuation slides to manual mode, because in automatic which is used during flight and taxi, the slides would pop out on opening the doors. Happened before and can cause serious injuries if not even death to rampers.
Cross Check - this is used all the time when flying, for example during the last checks before the flight the pilots perform cross check to ensure they both went through all items of the checklist. It means basically, that 2 or more people confirm to each other that things are done. I think even the 80 knots announcement sometimes was/is made as "80 - crosscheck" to make sure that PF and PNF both have the correct speed indicated. During arrival checks, the FAs confirm to each other that the doors are manual and safe to operate/open.
Stand By - just simply wait...for whatever... Big grin
All Call - mentioned before, this means that the crosscheck is performed on the intercom by all FAs at their assigned doors. Smaller planes only use front doors, then the crosscheck is performed across the aisle.

So, if you are an FA and that command is yelled into the PA, you go to your assigned door, set to manual to disarm the automatic slide deployment and you use the intercom to check and confirm with the otehr FAs that slides are disarmed and the doors safe to open now. After all have crosschecked you open the door and the pax can disembark.


Side note: I am no airman, I learned that here and from books and videos, stand to be corrected...

My understanding from my training on doors is that the door disarms itself when opened from the outside. (Well apart from the 737 - hence the strap accross the window). Well i know that this is true on the 747/757/767. Also note the rear door on the 757 is prone to ice so once the door is cracked always check that the slide isnt in the locking bolts on the floor.

On Airbus I thought that the door disarmed when opened from the outside too. So now I'm a bit :S now Jafa has said otherwise.

You are correct airbus/757/747 doors do disarm when opened from outside. The light would be to warn a FA that the door was armed if they tried to open it from inside. The cabin pressure light has been redesigned so it can be seen from outside.
At NWA FA don't open doors (except in emergencies) The gate agent closes and opens aircraft doors. Theoritically we only open doors during training on the simulators.
