True life of an Emirates Flight Attendant – anonymous report from EK cabin crew

This article excerpt is taken from another popular website. I guess that truth really is a daughter of time.

By:

When it comes to ME3 flight attendants, there's a lot of fear and sadness beneath those red hats and behind those gleaming smiles
When it comes to ME3 flight attendants, there’s a lot of fear and sadness beneath those red hats and behind those gleaming smiles.

***

The real story behind those flight attendants’ strained smiles is one of fatigue, gross mistreatment, abhorrent living standards, deception, mistrust, and even alcoholism, depression and suicide.

Those girls in little hats serving you onboard your ME3 flight fly almost twice as much as their counterparts at European carriers. Some U.S. airlines allow their crews to fly high hours, but they have rules in place for work and rest that are largely ignored by the ME3. Fly in from Manchester at 7 a.m. and go back out to Perth at 2 a.m. the next morning? This type of schedule is par for the course at the ME3, yet would be illegal in the U.S. or Europe.

This is just a part of the article. Read the whole story, along with the readers’ comments, here: http://thepointsguy.com/2015/01/insider-series-true-life-of-an-emirates-flight-attendant/#ixzz3R2rcLspb
