Aug 22nd 2009 4:29PM Frank...beautiful story...that made me cry! My heart goes out to the young wife...what a blessing it was though, I'm sure, for her to get your letter. :)
Aug 20th 2009 4:06PM Frank, I'm so sorry to hear about that experience. I can only imagine how hard that day must have been for you. :(
Besides a few minor medical emergencies (fainting, choking...) that all ended well, I've had one planned emergency. I had a flight once at my previous airline where the landing gear would not come down. This was on a prop plane where you can actually see the landing gear out your windows (under wing exits) so everyone was eerily aware of the situation. I was the only FA on board and prepared everyone for an emergency landing. At about 2,000ft our gear finally came down but the pilots weren't sure if it was locked in place so the passengers and I still braced for a hard landing. The gear did lock but a fire had started in the gear which started to spread up to the wing. Needless to say I evacuated that airplane. Everyone got out safely and the firetrucks meeting our aircraft had the fire out within a minute or two. I NEVER want to relive that again, but I am thankful everyday for the outcome!
Aug 13th 2009 12:42PM I can't EVER imagine joining the club. As a flight attendant, the things I have seen done to those lavatories has made me start to gag. People are so disgusting and you wouldn't believe some of the gross stories if I told you. Those images are always in the back of my mind...its hard enough for me to use the lavatory for its REAL purpose knowing those things. Disgusting!!
I've caught 5 couples joining the club though...my favorite thing to do is slip a note through the crack of the door "We know you're in there!"
