Prefer Dignified Or Down To Earth Crew?

Sat Dec 08, 2007 5:07 am

do you prefer a crew that is dignified, courteous, and business oriented or a crew that cracks jokes, addresses you by your first name, and lightens the mood?

A mix of both I guess

I meant in flight crew, but I suppose ground crew as well.

Hola!

Someones who lightens the mood with dignity and courteously would be just perfect!

Nowadays it seems it is too much to ask for.

Salut!

Completely agree....this gets my vote.

Not at all, in fact I personally know of at least one a.nettr, EWRCabincrew, that is the ultimate professional, great sense of humor, and very courteous to all during the flight I was fortunate enough to have him as a crew member.

I think a mix of both is good, which is what I usually find on my Aer Lingus and British Airways flights. I find their crews very dignified and courteous but always willing to have a chat and lighten the mood.

A sort of mix is good, and it greatly depends on the nature of the flight in my opinion. For instance, Saturday flights and flights to leisure destinations, particularly on low-fare airlines but also on others (i.e. Vegas flights, Florida flights, etc...) should have a lighthearted crew. On the other hand, a Monday morning flight between New York and Houston (two very business-oriented cities), particularly on a legacy carrier but also on others, the crew should be very businesslike and professional. Also, the crew should be more business oriented in premium cabins and can be a bit more lighthearted in the economy cabins.

In sum, it depends on:
- Route
- Airline
- Class
- Day of week (and holidays)
- Time of day
