3 questions for F/A's re: 1- pre takeoff safety briefing 2- screaming infants and small children 3- airsick pax

Tue May 15, 2018 1:15 pm

Hello all, I have 3 questions for flight attendants on any major airline, domestic or international service. If you have been flying long enough, you've probably seen all of this (along with some xxx stuff, etc.) If you haven't experienced any of these yet, you will by the time you retire.

Questions: #1 Can most of you recite the pre-taxi/takeoff announcement in your sleep? Especially if you fly ultra short haul routes, where you're giving the
"Welcome aboard flight 437 to Someplaceville" every 35 or 40 minutes. Those cabin announcements must get old really, really quick!

#2 Regarding screaming infants and small children on flights- do you speculate that it's the change in the cabin pressure/pressurization that
makes the infants scream? Since they are so young and have no idea what is causing "that feeling in my ear," much less being able to
verbalize what they are feeling, they just scream and shriek as loud as they can. What are your opinions on this subject?

#3 If you have been flying long enough as an F/A, you have most certainly encountered the airsick passenger who thinks they can make it
to the lavatory before tossing their cookies, but alas, that was not to be. They instead deposited their recent meals all over the aisle of
a single-aisle narrow body airliner, onto a seat, the floor, etc. Maybe even onto an unfortunate passenger who was sitting in the wrong
seat on the wrong flight. In cases like this, how do F/A's clean up the rather unpleasant remains of someone's half-digested scrambled egg
breakfast with hash browns and sausage, a roll, coffee and orange juice? Do they have special cleaning agents, disinfectants and
deodorizers available to them?

TIA for any responses.

I'm already insane but I'm not crazy!
