Here is my story on AF
Last March I took a flight from CDG
. The flight was delay for about 2 hrs, because the company that cleans and put new food on the plane were in strike.. At the beginning the delay was understandable because this situation was out of AF
control, and the crew had to clean the plane (the plane was just arriving from MIA
so it was all dirty). Finally we board the plane, and there was a tuna salad in every seat. The F/A asked us to keep it, because that was the only food that we were going to have in all the 10:30 hrs flight. I also tried to understand this, because it wasn't AF
fault that the company that load the plane with food were in strike.
The problem with AF
began after we took off from CDG
. The F/A just left the drinks cart on the aisle so the PAX could serve themselves, and ALL
of the flight attendants went to sleep, leaving the PAX alone.. Suddenly the flight was a REAL mess.. All the passengers were crowded in the aisle around the beverages cart. The F/A also left the alcoholic drinks there, so MANY of the passengers got REALLY drunk. They were REALLY out of control. Ladies couldn´t enter to the restroom because there were a lot of drunk men out there. The situation just got out of control. I mean I don´t have a problem with drunk people, but a lot of drunk people inside a plane, during a long haul flight, with nobody to control them, I think that is a BIG safety problem.
I wonder where the F/A were during all the flight!! I guess they were sleeping somewhere.. Actually some of the F/A had to wake up to go to the toilet, and saw this situation, and didn´t do ANYTHING at all. they just took a pis, and went back to sleep. Even when a lot of the F/A where men (I mean, it´s easier for a men to control a drunk men), they didn´t do anything at all..
Finally, after almost 11 hrs, we arrived MEX
... I wonder if these people were allowed to board their connecting flights that drunk..
So this is my story, and even if I have gotten drunk many times, I have never done that in plane.. I think AF
people should learn the flight safety concept, before they continue fliying..
