This is totally OT and I would not resent the moderators if they remove it. But YAY Revelation! Lol
We have both been here a long time, and we have clashed over a difference of opinion more than once, which is cool, its what forums are for. But here we 100% agree. I don’t care what airline I am flying be it an ULCC or LCC or BA, I want the flight crew to be well rested, well paid and in the right mindset should shit go south.
I have often wondered about the business model of LCC’s. I understand that they are no frills hence cheap, therefore you can go without service. As a fattish European I can happily go almost a month without food, so a three-hour flight should be fine. Hell I could perhaps even do 4 days without water and still live to tell the tail. But what I can’t do is survive at 40K feet without jet fuel.
As much as I respect MOL, and I really do, he is really pushing the limits to what is acceptable, just because its cheap.
This is the reason I wont fly on a ULCC. I think people should be paid a fair wage so they can enjoy their life with family. Bottom line pay a little bit more so the crews can be paid a fair wage. BTW I don't shop at Walmart either.
