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.
i clearly mentioned small planes. and yes for overseas flights we would need coke can openers like yourself.

you don't think the FAA regulations were infuluenced by your unions? sure gal, sure...

we do not need four coke can openers on a small flight of three hour duration.

My company is the only major airline that is non unionized. The FAA regulations are not influenced by anyone! Not all domestice flights are narrow body aircraft, you have trans con flights where larger aircraft are utilized. The planes I work on are jets not puddle jumpers.

Just how long have you been severely mentally challenged, child? Was it from birth, or due to multiple blows to your [empty little] head?

Now wait a minute: you forgot they have to weigh the can so they can divide it into three equal portions.

I would love it. And let's not forget there is a crash ax in the cockpit, that could be fun too.

Yeah, but the fun would end rather quickly with the axe,(unless you used the handle).

Using the handle was exactly what I had in mind. Locking him in the coach lavatory after a 5 hour flight( the stench is unbearable) is another fun filled option.

yes, we saw what happened to you "highly trained security personnel on 9-11, didn't we.

we need real security people on our planes, not waitresses.
