Wow - 7 Man Cockpit Crew On Super Connies!

Tue Aug 14, 2001 1:31 am


Hi everybody,

I thought I´d share this interesting piece of information with you:

I just got my hands on a Lufthansa Super Connie postcard, and they state on the back what the crew looked like:

1 captain
1 first officer
1 second officer
2 flight engineers
1 navigator
1 communications officer

Sure must have been crowded up front. Oh, and the cabin crew consisted of only three steward(esse)s - so, 10 total, of which seven are in the cockpit.

Sounds like my last flight with Olympic on a 747. There was at least 5 uniformed men on the flight deck. Not sure what they were doing (Cap., F/o and F/e notwithstanding), other than smoking loads of fags.
