Cabin crew: Their love keeps them grounded
If you think you can handle the stress that comes with the glitz and glam of the job, you might be surprised. When these names are listed on their roster, the more senior ones have no qualms about giving away good flights like London or Copenhagen, provided some dauntless soul out there is willing to take it up. There are forms of cosmic ionising radiation that soar through space and charge towards Earth.
So people who spend a lot of time higher up in the air—such as flight crew—are more exposed to cosmic rays. And ionising radiation, which includes these cosmic rays, is linked to cancer in humans and fertility issues for women. Always let your seniors pick their work positions first.

After graduating from university I wanted to travel the world. What was the training like? Fun, intense and hard work. You get training and qualifications in everything from delivering babies to handcuffing passengers. So were all of the male cabin crew gay? On the biggest airplane there had to be at least 20 cabin crew and they would all be from many countries which made it very cosmopolitan. Strangely, whether or not the male crew were gay seemed to depend on what country they were from — those from Western countries were almost always gay.

A judge said he would have jailed Bernadette Briggs if the worst of her behaviour had taken place while the Egypt bound Thomas Cook flight was in the air. Instead Briggs, who was previously cautioned for being drunk and disorderly, was handed a six month sentence suspended for 12 months and ordered to attend a program to address her drinking. Manchester Crown Court heard how Briggs, 39, punched cabin crew member Maddison Preece and bit and scratched passenger Noel Johnston, who was helping staff to restrain her.
Both incidents happened after the plane had landed, but Briggs, who was travelling with her sister, began shouting and swearing when the plane was in the air about 10 minutes before its final descent. Prior to boarding the plane to holiday resort Hurgarda, she drank two lagers, two vodkas and a whiskey in an executive lounge, the court heard.
She then had a whiskey and coke on the plane and bought bottles of whiskey and gin, drinking three quarters of the bottle of Bombay Sapphire gin.

Comments 41 Former cruise ship performer and soon-to-be-lawyer Danielle Gauer returns for another inside look at the cruise industry. You can read Danielle’s prior articles about life as a cruise ship dancer here and what Canadians should know about cruising here. Thanks Danielle for another great blog: The jobs on a cruise ship are pretty much based on nationality which designates the type of living arrangement that crew member will have.
Because the “lowest” jobs on the totem pole are the cleaners, those employees are usually situated on the lowest deck of the ship, in shared cabins with a communal washroom and shower to be shared with those living in that particular corridor. The type of job also determines status in the crew hierarchy. Hierarchy determines crew privileges and the kind of unspoken social rules that they must follow.
A cabin steward would not dare to try and socialize with an officer, and vice versa. That is business as usual. The majority of crew members do not have any special privileges. These crew members include the cabin stewards and waiters who are predominantly Indonesian or Filipino, and who work hours a day for little money. But the real question is.
This means that even the highest ranked officers can party with the lowest men and women on the totem pole.
