Flight from LGW – CAI
Somewhere over Greece
Woke up with the phone ringing. Hoping it was David, I made a grab for it.
“Morning. This is Stan from crewing, I have a trip for you.”
Please say LA, please say LA!
“Hold on a sec, please,” I said, reaching for the pad and pen on the bedside table. “Ok, go ahead.”
“Report for the BA one five five at-”
“Yes. Report time is-”
“I already know, thanks.”
Working in Economy with an on the ball purser called Carmel. The rest of the crew seem super friendly, pretty typical for TriStar crew. It’s the jumbo gang that tends to be more senior and somewhat snooty.
During the three-hour delay Carmel maintained her pleasant, professional demeanor, which emanated throughout the cabin, consequently leading to fewer passenger complaints, which I’m all for!
So far, the flight is going swimmingly, albeit in the wrong direction!
