I read a NWA FA
post like this and I thought it would be cool to do one. 12/11 Report time was 0815. At our company you have to be in 1 hour prior at the gate 30 minutes prior and board 25 minutes to go time aslong as everything is alright. As we all know there are MANY things that can change that. I went to the crew room and checked in and got my liquor envelops... 4-for them for my 4-day. A friend of mine has just commuted in on the red eye from SNA
to start her 4-day so she walked me up to my gate. At EWR
we leave out of C-2 99% of the time. We have so many flights that occassionally we use C-1 and C-3.
I got to the gate 30 mins prior and kissed my friend goodbye. I got on the plane the crew had everything turned on and ready. I did my saftey checks and briefed with the captain. Today was an easy day 1 leg to MKE
. We were full with lots of football fans that were going to a game. I can't remember who was playing but they were all wearing green. So we finished boarding 50 people in 50 seats. I got my final paper work closed made my PAS and saftey demo and phoned the captain that the cabin was ready for departure. It was a busy morning so we made a slow roll out to the runway. About a minute prior the F/O annouce for me to be seated for departure as we were number 3. I did my 30 second mental review gave a last look around the cabin for anything suspicious and off we went. Quick take off with light chop. We passed through 10,000 I did my PAS and started the beverage and breakfast serivce. Breakfast was a nut muffin and new york style cinnamon raison bagel chips. I get to row 7 BC
to find the girl threw up all over the place on take off. It was everywhere. I gave her a bottle of water napkins and a garbage bag and told her to leave it on the floor. I called the captain to notify them that we had haz waste on baord the the rows could not be used on the next flight out. I felt really bad and smiled and said it happens! 2 hours later we landed and deplanes in MKE
We had a very long layover in MKe we didn't leave till 1655 the following day. The following day we did MKE
. I like colorado springs. We have a nice hotel and nice views but this layover was about 10 hours to the minute and the following day was a long one. We got into COS
at 2228. I went to bed right away. Our next morning DEPT was at 0900 to IAH
. Once we got to IAH
we had a 3 hour sit. NOT FUN.... It makes you tired to sit an not fly one right after the other. I went and had breakfast and caught up with some friends with the crew room. Our next turn was to LCH
a 20 minute no service flight. We went out full and came back with only about 15 people. Once we got back we had another 2 hour sit grrrr and then off to BNA
we went for the overnight. We arrived at 2137 went to our hotel. I watched some TV
went online and then off to bed.
Next morning we had a 1130 DEPT to IAH
. I had a 2 hour sit and it was like a family reunion in IAH
. Saw tons of friends had a good time and off we went to MEM
and then our last leg to EWR
. It was a nice trip but the ending was a bit tiring. I had a nice crew and the trip paid well about 22 hours. I hope everyone enjoys it.
