RE: Off To Flight Attendant School

Maybe you should go to Flight school instead of Flight Attendant school. That would be money well spent.

RE: Off To Flight Attendant School

My personal opinion, like almost 99.999999999% of everyone who has posted in this topic is that going to flight attendant school is a total waste of money. I got hired to work the ramp without any prior experience. And to make my point even more clear there were others who were at the job fair with ...

RE: Connections In CDG

CDG is a huge airport. Whenever I connect in CDG I was always able to find my way around without any problems. The only thing I don't care for is the walking, especially if a "moving walkway" is out of service.

RE: Curtains Onboard US Airlines

CAL uses a "mesh" type of curtain to separate Business 1st and coach class. It is transparent but you have to be looking head on to see through the curtain. Prior to that they were using a thick rope, the kind you find at movie theaters.
