RE: Your Most Scenic/Exciting Flights?

I'm lucky enough to live in the Masai Mara in Kenya and every flight I take from here to Nairobi is scenic, different - and often pretty exciting. We fly Caravans, Twotters and, my personal favourite (when it's busy enough), the Dash 7 and invariably I'm in the cockpit (or r/h seat if it's the Carav...

RE: Cabin Crew Pics

Okay, I changed my mind... thanks to <acronym title="Air France">AF</acronym> Cabin Crew's pics, my favourite has to be Thai Airways (although I guess being a girl means it's the one I'd most like to wear, rather than the one I find sexiest to look at!  <img src="/discussions/graphics/smilies/w...

RE: Which Is The Worst Airline You Have Been On?

Iberia. Rude, lazy FAs and tatty aircraft.

I found TunInter slightly alarming in that they allowed pax to wander in and out of the cockpit during the flight (post-9/11) and children were running up and down the cabin and standing on the seats on final approach while the FAs ignored them!

RE: Anti Roll-On And Oversize Hand Baggage Thread!

I'm a photographer and I can't afford for my equipment to keep getting damaged or stolen (as has frequently happened in the past when it's been checked), so it'll be travelling in the cabin with me, either in a roll-on or a large Tamrac backpack. Unless , that is, Mr "Roll-Ons-Are-Evil-And-Should-Be...

RE: How Much Do You Expect From Your Inflight Crew

Since my life is in their hands should anything go wrong, safety would be my primary concern. I like my service with a smile, but TBH as long as it's professional and courteous, I'm usually more than happy. I don't understand people who are discourteous or condescending to cabin crew. I reckon these...
