I have flown them on domestic routes a few times. Never disspointed with the material they put me on. TU154 and yak40. You're laughing your a** off when you see their protocols and how they work. No english anywhere to be found and what about someone without a boarding pass. Nah give em a handshake and welcome aboard
Those were a few of the best flights in my life! for sure
Didn't say they are a bad airline, just said it is pain in the ass working with them, as communication proves even harder than with pilots of Turkish airlines (not only meaning TK here, but generally airlines from Turkey)... but screw it, I get money for doing it, so what do I care? I do my job as good as I can, and if the pilots do as well, the plane won't crash, never mind the rest
No dispute here. It was just hot on the ramp in Denver. He had one engine running but needed the juice from it to start #2. So we had to wait until we were pushed back before they got us any relief from the temp in the cabin.
Usually you don't have any engine being started before pushback, due to safety reasons. Especially when at a gate, because -at least big jets- can do serious harm to glass facades due to their power. In FRA they even have to be towed into gate, as they would pull off all the windows from the wall, if they rolled in on engine power.
Anyways, you got home safely, as we all see, so everything's alright, you didn't crash that is most important
