Air New Zealand’s bare cheek when it comes to safety

January 27, 2010

I have a friend who has moved to New Zealand recently, and my attention has since been drawn to this video… I have to say, that as far as safety demonstration videos goes, it doesn’t fail to keep your eyes glued to the screen in a ‘surely not!‘ way…  Oh, and just in case you […]

I’m sick of swine flu!

April 30, 2009

I am officially concerned.  Bf has operated a rescue flight out to one of the Swine Flu affected areas. He took an empty plane out and spent a little over 24 hours there before returning home… I know the chances of his actually becoming infected are not particularly significant, but it’s naturally playing on my mind, since […]

Pam Ann Vs Virgin Atlantic

March 16, 2009

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I just found something that made me laugh sooooo hard that I almost electrocuted myself as I sprayed my laptop with the glass of water I had been drinking! Remember this post where I bitched about the new Virgin ad?  FYI here is the offending advert (please watch it if you’ve not yet seen […]

Hands off my Pilot, HO!

February 23, 2009

UGH!  I NEED TO VENT! Bf just rang to say goodnight… Some hostie (from a different UK airline also staying in the same hotel as his crew are), who will here on in be referred to as: ‘the cheap ho’ just tried it on with him… So, naturally, he told her about me and Baby, as a […]

New Virgin Atlantic Advert. There are TWO pilots on the plane, damn it!

January 18, 2009

If you’re in the UK, you probably wont fail to notice the new Virgin Atlantic advert.  I’m really in two minds about it. I love the Frankie goes to Hollywood track, and all the 80’s references; but as for all the rest of the kitch, stereotype cliche’s. PLEASE!? Firstly, as Flying High said in her […]

Trip Culture

January 13, 2009

Well, we had a fantastic time together. I didn’t manage to get an upgrade on the way out, because the flight was too busy. I actually bagged the last seat, which was pretty lucky. The plane was delayed for aaaaaaages, so long in fact, that Bf and the rest of the flight deck went into […]

Travelling with my pilot on a crew trip

November 15, 2008

Well, as promised, the details of my trip with Bf… As I mentioned previously, my ticket was confirmed. I had wanted to avoid the usual stress of standby (non-rev) tickets.  It actually felt quite strange to be able to check in at a normal time, and not have a lump in my throat, and a queasy […]

Crossing a (telephone) line

September 14, 2008

Bf is away on a long-haul trip at the moment. I was pretty hacked off yesterday morning. He always rings me to say goodnight wherever he is. Except on Friday night/Saturday morning. I was absolutely freaking out on Saturday morning. I must have made a million calls to his hotel and mobile phone. As it […]

High jinks…what the cabin crew (and pilots) really get up to

July 20, 2008

This is the title of a news story I happened to come accross on the net just now… It makes for an uncomfortable read, but I thought I’d give my thoughts on it from things I’ve seen, and direct stories I’ve heard: “For most of us ordinary travellers, flying has become an utterly miserable experience. But […]
