This is what happens if you get too drunk before boarding a plane – at 9am

“I didn’t do anything wrong, I did nothing!” The man shouting and gesturing wildly has just been hauled off a flight bound for Malaga at Manchester Airport . His speech is slurred; he’s drunk after downing pints in a Terminal One bar at 9am. Shouting belligerently across the aisle before the plane’s even left the ground, he’s shot himself in the foot. Jet2.com have a zero-tolerance policy. Airport police officers… Read Article →

Airline forced us to choose between breastfeeding and our jobs: flight attendants

Two veteran flight attendants for Frontier Airlines claim they were forced onto unpaid leave after having babies and were banned from breast-pumping while on the job despite routinely working 10-hour days. Flight attendants Jo Roby and Stacy Rewitzer say the airline is “systematically failing” to accommodate pregnant and breastfeeding employees — even forcing Roby to pump breast milk in a bathroom at Denver International Airport and in airplane lavatories over a seven-month span, according… Read Article →

Pilot Under Investigation for Allowing Woman to Join Him in Cockpit Alone

A Chinese woman on Pakistan International Airlines flight PK853 from Tokyo to Beijing spent over two hours in the cockpit including time alone with just the pilot, staying there for landing. I’ve made the case that PIA is the world’s worst airline. They’ve lost thousands of passengers. And they’ve flown with more passengers than seats. Passengers have turned up to find military cargo planes instead of passenger aircraft. So nothing… Read Article →

‘I’ll kill you!’ American arrested after brawling on flight from Tokyo.

Domestic carriers aren’t the only ones experiencing periodic turbulent passenger incidents, apparently. A video recorded on an All Nippon Airways flight Monday captured a fistfight that broke out between two male passengers. The brawl was captured by Corey Hour, a Phoenix-based videographer who was sitting a few rows behind the men. The plane was scheduled to fly from Tokyo’s Narita International Airport to Los Angeles International Airport but had not… Read Article →

Former flight attendant documents gross airplane behavior on social media

People do disgusting things at 30,000 feet. That’s why one former flight attendant started the social media phenomenonPassenger Shaming. “Nothing is ever Photoshopped,” said the page’s founder Shawn Kathleen, “and it’s disturbing to know that everything that happened on that website is 100 percent real.” During her years in the skies, Kathleen started a blog to anonymously call out passengers, “Rants of a Sassy Stew.” She grew a following and… Read Article →

At its peak, the Emirates Aviation College saw over 4,000 new Cabin Crew graduate in a single year.  That was back in 2014 when the training school had to operate 17 hours a day, with 478 trainers to keep up with demand.  In that year, a whopping 33,000 students were processed through the college. Things are a little different now.  Emirates is shrinking its workforce in reaction to a slowdown… Read Article →

IBM QRadar Advisor with Watson: Revolutionizing the Way Security Analysts Work

Growing up, science fiction shows and movies fascinated me with their speculations about amazing technologies the future might bring. A common element of many of these stories was an intelligent system – depicted as a robot, a computer or a droid – and they were there to complement the mission. Today, I get to play a part in bringing to life technologies that yesterday we could only imagine. We at… Read Article →
