Training is one thing, the real world is another. Do as the rest of the crew is doing, and don't question or mouth off to someone who's been doing that job since you were getting your diapers changed. Period, end of story.

Hmmmmm....I don't know about that. I was trained as an "Airborne Mandarin Chinese Linguist" (you do the math) while n the USAF and when I first got on the RC-135 my boss told me "Forget about half of what you learned in Tech School. This is the real world Air Force." And he was right. The basics were there but over time experience had fined tuned them to reality.

How the heck do these new flight attendants end up places like NRT and HNL?

my fave though was a cabin crew jumping up and down in the cabin for the pilots to see if there was a problem with the landing gear outside

We teased her for YEARS afterward about being the only person in Braniff history that cooked the Baked Alaska and she took it is a badge of honor, like a trooper.
