Feb 23rd 2011 12:05PM I frequent the Walmart on LONG ISLAND on Old Country Rd. It's always crowded and they DO NOT accommodate the customer fast enough to check out. I've walked in, saw the long check-out lines and just walked out. There's usually only "ONE" cashier for the back door near the garden center. The counters up front are usually mobbed. What's frustrating is that you see Walmart employees walking around doing nothing, avoiding eye contact, etc. CROSS TRAIN THEM!!!! See a long line? At the very least, get a manager to clear it. Your competition is right around the corner, TARGET. I rarely wait on a line there!
May 29th 2010 11:41AM No agents were at my gate an hour before departure so I attempted to ask at another gate if my window seat could be changed to an aisle, but was told I'd have to do it at my own gate. When an agent arrived at my gate, she looked busy, although nobody was in line. I asked if I could change my seat and she looked up, took the ticket from my hand, typed into the computer, ripped up my old ticket and handed me my new aisle seat, saying, "Here you go." I asked if there were snacks on board and she said they'd be for sale. I asked if water was free, she said "Yes." When I asked if my frequent flier number was on the ticket, she said "Yes" without glancing at it. All business and flavor-free. No time wasted on pleasantries, yet no real rush either.
interesting how you could of found out most of these answers online before going to the airport.
WHAT AN AMATUER YOU ARE!!!!
May 24th 2010 9:26AM hmmmm, you've even signed this article by Mystery flyer and NOT your real name. How weak.
......You were being an ASS and you wanted to see if you could get a rise out of this flight attendant. You're not a mystery flyer, you're the general public!
May 22nd 2010 11:57PM ouch...apparently my posting here is a detriment to your blog. sorry.
flying away now.
May 16th 2010 11:15AM ok, ok. She asked for DEEP AND DARK. I was 20-ish back then and alcohol was involved. :::EG:::
I'm actually a model hotel guest (now). I tidy up the room before leaving. Towels in the bathtub. Trash in the trashbins. etc.
May 14th 2010 8:19PM Tom,
You're my hero. I always comment to gentlemen, like yourself.
I'm currently nursing a bad back for almost a week now. Only one person asked me for help this week, I explained my bad back and she helped lift one side while I did the other, cautiously.
Thanks for your kindness onboard.
I try and help out customers who are shopping for bags in department stores. LOL. I've been known to go over and ask two important questions: Is the handle sturdy? And number two, are the wheels/wheel components strong? I tell them I've flown for almost 30 years and know when I see a good bag. Either my handle or the wheels self-destruct, first.

Many years ago, I got a furlough notice in my mailbox at work prior to "starting" my trip. Several of my classmates were on the trip and obviously all got the same notice.
We decided to "party" on our layovers since we werent sure when we'd be back in the air. We gathered in someone's room and out came all the (mini) liquor bottles for comsumation. After some laughs, some tears and some alcohol, we decided to venture around the hotel. This is in the middle of the night. We found the kitchen, no one inside, so we helped ourselves to the food. To this day, I cant believe we werent caught. I woke up the next day with a dessert tray in my room. I thought, OMG! Where did that come from? Someone on the crew had to refresh my memory that next morning. My last trip with that airline was a wild end to a fun charter airline who gave me the opportunity to see the world.
May 3rd 2010 7:17PM If there's one thing crew members have in common, its we're a frugal bunch.
You got that right, sister. I travel with the majority of my food on trips now. Just ended a four day trip and spent $20.00. Last week, I spent $5.00 on a three day trip. I'd rather bring that money home and have it for my days off. Plus, the less I spend, the less I'm pressured to fly to pay bills. LOL, I'd rather have a microwave, then internet access while staying in a hotel on a layover.
Hang out with pilots on layovers? I'd have to say, NEVER. We've all been flying long enough to know certain layovers, enjoy certain cities and venture out on our own. The ONLY time I really see the pilots is in the crewroom and on the van to the hotel, late at night.
Lifestyle for married? I'd have to say, most married female flight attendants LOVE getting away for a few days from their spouses and children. I've heard it for decades, they say, "I'm treating myself to a manicure in SFO". A bubble bath, a good book on their layover. It allows them to be an individual, not just Mommie or a wife for a couple of days. They say we all have jet fuel in our veins. I get antsy after a week off, ready to go, experience this unusual job which gives you a different experience, many times over.
Apr 26th 2010 10:29AM Sadly, I miss the days when we, as flight attendants did an amazing job in all classes of service in the aircraft. Even in (roach) Coach, hot meals, hot towels etc. We worked our tails off, but, we were compensated for it. We competed on service, not cost. Occasionally, I still get asked for a pillow and blanket in coach. I reply, "They're gone, just like my pension." People laugh.
Heather, I wish I could work a service like your husband received. I'm tired of apologizing.
