Interesting information from the horse’s mouth.
The employee of any profession has its secrets, and the employees of the airlines is no exception. Some of them are eager to share details of their work in social networks.
We have found 12 such Internet revelations.
Not all minor faults are repaired immediately
Do not think that anyone would allow take-off if it is unsafe. In fact, the list of things to check before takeoff, just huge. But there are small faults that do not affect safety, so they can be addressed later. This is done in order to avoid flight delays.
Why the need for handrails beside the door inside the plane
They are designed primarily for flight attendants in case of panic on Board. When the flight attendant prepares the door for emergency evacuation of passengers, panicked people may inadvertently knock her down or even push him out of a plane. Handrails will help the stewardess to keep from falling.
The captain and co-pilot have different nutrition
If suddenly someone of them will be poisoned and will not be able to fly a plane, then his responsibilities will take on another pilot. However, this policy is not all airlines.
Locks cannot protect your Luggage from opening
Hook locks for Luggage zipper is useless, because it’s easy to open with a regular pencil or pen that sometimes works. While lightning can damage.
Why can not smoke on Board the aircraft
It is believed that the Smoking ban was introduced for such obvious reasons as the risk of fire and harm from passive Smoking. But the first reason raises some doubts, because before the Smoking was allowed and fires that did not occur. In fact, the main reason for the prohibition is economic. The air in the plane is constantly circulated, passing through a filter and the soot and tar faster lead to them wearing.
7 main reasons why Luggage is lost
Luggage decided to check further and not had time to load it on the plane.
Someone from the staff — most often this happens with new employees — loaded the suitcase in the truck, and as a result he came to the right place.
Airline employee mistakenly attached the wrong Luggage label.
The passenger is not removed from the baggage of old stickers and labels that led to confusion.
The suitcase is stuck on the belt or he sent him in the wrong direction — this can occur during connecting flights.
Suitcase fell out of the truck on the way to the plane and no one noticed. However, this happens infrequently.
In the recognition system Luggage failed, or the tag was lost. Therefore, employees are advised to leave a name and contact information in a conspicuous place on the outside or at least inside the suitcase.
Why passengers are asked to turn off their mobile phones
It is unlikely that the phone can bring down a plane is more of a myth, but its signal can create noise like what we hear in the speakers for a couple of seconds to finish. It can prevent the pilots to hear important information from the air traffic controller. However, the crew themselves sometimes this rule is ignored.
Employees and their immediate families rely on discounted tickets
Many airline employees are entitled to very cheap, and in some cases even free tickets for themselves, their children and spouses. Typically, when buying a ticket, the employee pays only the taxes and surcharges and the flight for him is actually free.
The bathroom door opens easily from the outside
This door has a special lever which is hidden behind the sign “No Smoking” or “toilet”. Of course, this was done not to violate the privacy of passengers and that the crew do not have to break the door if somebody inside will be bad.
The armrests of seats in the aisles and the Windows go up too
Many people are annoyed that the arms of the chairs near the aisles and Windows are locked. It turned out that they can be raised. To do this, click the small button at the base of the armrest, hidden in the recess at the bottom. But be prepared for the fact that flight attendants will ask you to return the handle in place.
When is the best time to buy tickets
It is believed that the earlier you buy tickets the cheaper they will cost you. Actually it is not so, simply the cheapest tickets are bought fastest. However, there are days of the week when flights cost a little less than usual. It is Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday.
You will not regret it, if you’re polite
Flight attendants recognized that the more intimate you refer to them, the more they are willing to do for you. Not enough beef? Ask politely, and you can bring filet Mignon in first class. Got a noisy neighbor? You’ll try to find another place, if you calmly explain the situation. Want to know the result of a football match, but in flight this is not possible? The flight attendant may well learn it for you if she likes you. But the troublemakers are unlikely to have the services more than the minimum.
