At least it's not Air Canada. Some of their flight attendants are getting a wee bit long in the tooth.

nursedude: At least it's not Air Canada. Some of their flight attendants are getting a wee bit long in the tooth.


Same with American Airlines. They essentially stopped hiring flight attendants around 2000 or so, and were relying on attrition to thin the ranks. Supposedly they're going to hire 1500 new FAs next year, but we'll see if that happens.

I have a friend who's a flight attendant with AA, and even though she's been with them for thirteen years, she's near the bottom of the list, seniority-wise. Out of something like 13,000 attendants, she's junior to about 12,000 of them.

tl;dr version - there are a lot of aging sky-bunnies who absolutely refuse to quit.
 
2012-10-25 12:36:30 PM
I don't fly often, so perhaps I missed something, but I deal with a lot of flight crews where I work, and all of the female flight attendants all have the same exact look. Was being a flight attendant always the same as being a hooters waitress?

It's creepy as hell seeing 20 of the same person marching around in a row.

//Also, super tall, thin gay dudes.

FALSE. Ryanair doesn't fly to london. They fly to stansted. Which is fine by me, since I live not too far from Stansted.

And, I just bought return tickets to Rome that cost me a total of 32 pounds, all in. Do I like being treated like a sheeple? Of course not. But I do like tickets to Rome for 32 pounds - quite liteerally just to have a dinner with a fried and back- and not having to drag my butt to heafrow-by-staines, so I manage.

I've flown RyanAir over 100 times in the last 5 years - maybe even 150. I've had a grand total of 3 delayed flights, one of which was due to the volcano. I have no love for the company, but I'd hate for them to be gone. I flew EasyJet to Nice last weekend. it was a better flying experience and in that case cost about the same, though the return flight was late (in that case due to the arrival of the president's falcon jet)

Ryanair flight attendants arent particularly attractive. it's just that if you have so many, as they do, some of them will be decent enough. It's quite funny to watch the evolution of them though - you can tell the new hires by the amount of effort they take to look good. And, unlike the USA, they don't pretend it's a "profession" that deserves "professional respect" or a pension plan. It's not a simple job, but it's not exactly rocket science either.

RyanAir don't offer nuffin' for free.

Only airline I've ever flown that had lottery tickets being hawked up and down the aisle.

(for a 35-pound flight from Stanstead to Tenerife, though, who cares how cheesy and tacky the in-flight promotions and sales are?)

As somebody who has lived close to Ryanair's "Hamburg" airport in Luebeck. I, too, am OK with being treated like cattle when you can get a flight for cheaper than a train ride.

I took advantage of their super discount rates for their new route between Luebeck and Budapest. It was like 20 Euros. Round trip.

It seems as though most countries realize that flight attendants function best as Hooter's Waitresses in the sky, as opposed to the grouchy school marms we get here in America.

I don't care if they've got trolley dollies wearing nothing but thongs and giving out joints, I would never fly with the cheapskate dangerous arrogant coonts again. I would prefer to pay a couple of quid extra to fly with a company who will actually fly on the day/time specified, to an airport in a recognizable city within 50 miles of where I'm supposed to be and not charge me for every little farking thing en route. By the time you've been charged for all the add-ons they're not really cheaper anyway. Each time I have used Ryanair they have always been delayed or cancelled. The customer service is farking appalling and I would rather go by bus/train/ferry/walk than give them another pound.

You must work for that airline given how much of an apologist you are for them. Even if you are not, you're part of the problem. Professional respect and benefits are what make for a good airline given that the people working for them have no incentive to backstab - unlike that discount airline you defend. If that airline DIAF's, the world would be much better for its nonexistence.
