Dec 27th 2009 11:17AM This was a safety issue . The cabin crew should have done their jobs / Im ex FAA . I was flying home from Oklahoma City on TWA . We were cruising along and 2 young children were running around the cabin. I was seated opposite the galley in the rear when one of the children about 6 years of age went in and began playing with the handle of the exit door. With 2 attendants in the galley doing nothing to stop her. I said to them these 2 children belonged in there seats and I got a rather smart alec answer back that it was OK and she isn't strong enough to move the door handle . My partner next to me spoke up and said . You are aware that the entire back half of this plane is occupied by FAA people right . Well the look of shock on their faces was priceless , they took the kids to take them back to their seats when the father shows up and says why are you bothering my child. I guess when you think your job is going to be toast your perspective changes because not only did they put the kids back in their seats , they also made the father sit down and told him You will not let these children out of their seats till we land . I really didn't want to find out if she was strong enough to move the door handle. would you ?
