Not neccessarily an exchange, but while on vacation leaving Antigua and going back to YYZ
, with a stopover in SXM
there was a lav problem. One of the two tanks indicated full, even after a reservice. The F/D asked what I though, i said "5hr flight on one tank......how many barf bags do you have on board?" The cap't was brought in to the loop and asked if I could look at it. With the help and tools of a BA
engineer (one '47 turn around/day in SXM
- nice job) I cleaned a sensor. Got the appreciation from the crew, nice words over the P.A. and a swift kick in the ass from my manager for my effort 'nobody told you to do it, so no O.T.' I'll still do stuff like that, but get MCC
to authorize it first.
