Umm.. I was waiting to pass a certain subject to answer this, but..well:
In all honesty though i hate air travel. From the hassle at airports to the screaming kids to the moronic strangers...
That wouldnt be a problem if you payed for a premium first class
Air travel would be better and more bearable long haul if you could just do everything self service.
yeah.. and bearing 180/340 people walking along the aisle, getting their coffee and burning others accidentally while serving tea, pushing each other to pass, insulting and starting airbattles out of nothing just like any Monday morning in the tube.. what a perfect postcard from HELL
Also, 1- I know how to fasten/release a seatbelt, 2- i don't want any tea or coffee, 3- I can inflate a life vest (only after i have exited the aircraft) and 4- i can read the safety card/follow the illuminated pathways to the emergency exits.
1, 3, 4... I hope that firstly you would never have to test yourself. But if you ever had to.. I hope stress wouldn't block your mind like it does to most people. For instance: Mayday-Ethiopian Airlines flight 961. have you got any idea of how many times the flight attendants explained how to do 1, 3 and 4? How many times they shouted DONT INFLATE THE VEST INSIDE OF THE PLANE?... And have you got an idea of how many people died because they couldn't release their seatbelt and they inflated their vest INSIDE of the cabin... many, sadly
The safety part is irrelevant anyway because we all know that 99% of people would snap every other fuckers neck to get out of a flaming can rather than calmly wait and file out in an orderly fashion.... I'd be disappointed if the cabin crew felt that the passengers lives were more important than their own and didn't join in the survival of the fittest free for all.
We are all different Michael. In the institute most of us have a huge sense of ethics and responsability, but the one sat behind me is a fucking pothead, money-seeker (
I despise him. How can you be so imprudent to long for getting on a plane to "take care" of passengers while high? ) I hope he wont ever pass the interviews cause yeah, he's the tipical "I love myself" kind of guy, like the Costa Concordia Captain. I can't talk on behalf of everyone in the industry, but my instructors faced many emergencies in their path and their performance was professional and successful ( I love them
). I for instance give classes at home right now. And if some student arrives late and I have to go down to open the door, I always leave my remaining students locked inside cause I'm afraid some thief might come in the building and wait in the hall or the stairs. and I'm damn sure I'd rather swallow the key before letting them get in my house and put the safety of my pupils in danger (they're mostly children and teenagers).
Maybe i will re-evaluate my opinion and change my mind when they invent a way of allowing you to take a piss whenever you want without having the annoyance of some trolley blocking the way.
That's actually on purpose. They MEAN to block the aisle, to PREVENT people from standing up
