You obviously have no idea the amount of training involved in airline travel. Nor the amount of responsibilities that it entails. Take a hike, you mindless drone.
Thank-you! We are trained to deal with evacuations,both land and water(ditching), medical emergencies,fires, etc. People have no idea what we do before they board the aircraft, we check every piece of emergency equipment and perform many other safety checks to ensure our passengers a safe journey in the wild blue yonder.

Right, coward. It is quite obvious that you are the one "running",'boy'. And there's no need to "compete" with someone at your "level". For there is nothing to "compete" against. Go play with your tonka toys and legos, punk.

I can just picture that loon in an emergency, he would be the one to panic and knock over elderly people so he can be the first one down the slide.

EXACTLY. And you'd have to cold-cock him with an extinguisher.

First of all I am based in NY. FAA requires 1 flight attendant for 50 passengers. The number of flight attendants on board depends on the aircraft type and configuration. An example would be a 747-400 can seat 416 passengers,if only one flight attendant was on board during an emergency a lot of people would die, with only 1 emergency exit door operational. You might want to think about that next time you fly. And no Thank-God the only evacuations I ever had to commence were in the cabin trainer.

You sure have an active imagination for a mindless spam-bot, Sod0mite. But I guess fantasy is all you have left, isn't it?

Can't help that your severe mental retardation/agenda prevents you from acknowledging the truth.
