Secrets flight attendants don’t want you to know! These top facts about airplanes and flying that only flight attendants and insiders know 14. Unsanitary Incidents- A lot of passengers like to remove their shoes when they get to their seat and just relax for the rest of the flight. But the inside of airplanes isn't always as clean as it looks. Even though flight attendants clean after the plane has landed, not all messes are accounted for. Many unsanitary incidents occur during trips that passengers consider or rarely see like unexpected bathroom accidents and sickness. People also change their baby's diapers on the table trays and not every tabletop gets thoroughly wiped between each flight. Plus, the complimentary blankets you receive in the coach’s class are only fresh during the first flight. Afterward, the sheets are folded and reused. Oh and just a head’s up when you go into the lavatory, and you’re just wearing your socks or barefoot, that’s not water you’re stepping in. 13. Decoding Lights- If you’ve ever been on an airplane, you might have noticed pink, yellow and blue lights. They are usually visible inside the cabin, towards the front of the aircraft and make a little ding when the light illuminates. But what does it mean? When the lights chime, it’s an indication for flight attendants that they are needed, and each light means something different. When the light is pink, it says the captain or a fellow flight attendant is calling them. When the yellow light signals on, it indicates a passenger hit the call button while inside the lavatory. If the blue light switches on, it means someone on board needs assistance. On some flights, there is also a green light that could mean a variety of things. It could let flight attendants know when they are near the gate, or it could indicate that the cockpit is off limits because the plane hasn’t reached a certain altitude. But it all varies on the type of aircraft and the carrier. 12. Safety Grab Handles- Next time you’re on board a plan, take a glance of the handles by the door. If you guessed that they were grab handles, you are correct! But why are they there? Well in an emergency situation, filled with chaos and panic the flight attendants are usually found by the exit doors assisting passengers out of the plane. Scared and alarmed passengers who are rushing out of the aircraft have a tendency to push the flight crew out of the way and knock them over all the way down to the slide. So the handles are there as a safety measure for flight attendants to grab on and stay on the plane if that’s what they’re instructed to do. 11. Passenger Code Names- Anything interesting that happens on board will be discussed with the rest of the flight staff. Meaning anything from annoying crying babies to rude passengers will be identified in secrecy and all the other flight attendants will know about it. Flight attendants will give those passengers code names. For example, one code name might be Bob, which stands for boyfriend on board. This is the name given when a flight attendant is attentive to a particular passenger and ensures that he is taken care of throughout the trip. You might hear flight attendants ask about how Bob is doing and how they’re verifying to make sure the relationship is going steadily. 10. All Cargo Aboard- A lot of cargo gets shipped, aside from your luggage there is also dead people in the hold. Some people die abroad and need to be shipped home, or some people are very far from their resting place and are being sent there. The deceased is packed in wood framed boxes so you would never be able to guess its contents, except maybe the strange shape might provide a clue that it’s a body. The deceased is labeled as HR, which means human remains. So if you hear the flight crew mentioning HR while flying Delta, this just means there are human remains in the cargo.However some airlines like Easyjet don’t transfer load, so there won’t be any coffins on the plane.

Air Access is a concept designed by Priestmangoode that facilitates air travel for passengers with reduced mobility (PRMs) by enabling an easier transition from gate to aircraft. The ingenious design aims to reduce the indignity and discrimination that PRMs face when travelling by air. How it works: The Air Access concept consists of two elements: a detachable wheelchair by which passengers can be transported onto and off of the plane, and a fixed-frame aisle seat on the aircraft into which the wheelchair is mated to create a regular airline seat. Ground services staff assist the passenger into the Air Access wheelchair seat in the departure gate or on the jetway, where there is ample space to manoeuvre. When seated, the passenger is wheeled onto the plane. Once onboard, the wheelchair's 360-degree pivoting wheels enable it to be slid sideways into the fixed-frame aisle seat without the passenger needing to get up. When the two elements are positioned, they are locked together for the duration of the flight. On arrival, ground staff simply unlock the wheelchair seat, slide it out into the aisle and wheel the passenger to the jetway or arrival gate. Once there, the passenger returns to his or her own wheelchair or zimmer frame, or transfers into the airport's wheelchair. Why do we need Air Access? Currently, around 20% of the UK's adult population has some form of disability or mobile difficulty. For this demographic air travel can be fraught with problems. Ground and airline staff are often inadequately trained and unaware of their legal obligations. The absence of a systematic process for boarding and disembarking PRMs can lead to confusion and complications for airline staff. For PRMs, being physically assisted into and out of airplane seats can be stressful and demeaning, and inflight toileting can be difficult. It's imperative that we start thinking today about implementing change to cater for future generations of air travellers. Benefits of Access Air The Air Access seat could be installed in every aisle seat of the aircraft. In a wide-body this would be four seats per row, meaning dozens of PRMs could travel on any given flight. This is particularly useful when large groups of passengers with reduced mobility travel together eg. Paralympic athletes Increased safety for passengers. Passengers do not need to be handled by airline staff in the tight confines of the aircraft. Increased safety for handlers as well. Easier to use toilet facilities in flight. Passengers only need assistance to unlock their seat and wheel to the nearest toilet. The chair has a removable seat pad. Many passengers with serious disabilities, for instance spinal injuries, need to sit on their own purpose-designed cushions. Passengers can customise the Air Access seat to suit their individual needs. Anyone can sit in the seat. As the access seat integrates seamlessly into the aircraft, the airline does not lose seating space if there are no PRMs travelling. The Air Access concept is suitable for all aircraft types, though offers particular benefits to long haul, wide body aircraft—both for passenger experience and cost benefit to airlines.

All European airports offer assistance to passengers with reduced mobility (PRM). This European Union measure represents great social progress for disabled people and, therefore, all the financial, material and human resources have been put in place to enable all Spanish Airports to provide a quality service that guarantees access to air travel for everyone and between all points within European territory, irrespective of their disability. Exclusively those passengers whose mobility when using transport is reduced due to any physical disability (sensory or locomotor, permanent or temporary), intellectual disability, age or any other cause of disability that requires special attention and the adaptation of the service made available to all passengers to his or her particular needs. Please be aware that if you request this service without fulfilling the above criteria, you are seriously harming those who really do need the service.

In support of the Falkland Island Government, British forces based in the Falkland Islands yesterday responded to a distress call by the 10000 tonne cruise ship ‘Le Boreal’. The ship reported suffering a major engine room fire, which caused the loss of all power and left the ship drifting. A northwesterly gale placed the ship in real danger of grounding on Cape Dolphin, East Falkland. The master ordered the ship, with 347 passengers and crew, to be abandoned early yesterday morning. Working closely with the Falklands Islands Government, British Forces enacted a major Search and Rescue plan. Two Royal Air Force Sea King Search and Rescue helicopters were scrambled, along with two other support helicopters, a C130 Hercules and a Voyager aircraft for command and control. The Royal Navy patrol vessel HMS Clyde was despatched to the scene, as were the Dutch tugs which support British Forces in the Falkland Islands. In an operation coordinated from Mount Pleasant, Royal Air Force Search and Rescue helicopters, supported by British International and Bristows helicopters, successfully winched 79 personnel from the deck of the Le Boreal and from 2 life rafts in the water. All of these evacuees were brought to the British Forces Base at Mount Pleasant where they received care, clothing, food and medical attention. HMS CLYDE assisted two further lifeboats with over 200 evacuees on board, ensuring all those onboard were brought to safety. All passengers and crew from Le Boreal have been accounted for and are being looked after on the Falkland Islands. The vessel itself is now in a stable condition and two Dutch Tugs, under contract to British Forces in the Falkland Islands, are now assisting to bring the vessel alongside in the Falkland Islands for a detailed assessment of her condition to take place.

LISBON, PORTUGAL — A 24-year-old Brazilian man died on board an Aer Lingus flight after he reportedly bit another fellow passenger on Sunday afternoon. The man was on Aer Lingus Flight 485, which was heading to Dublin from Lisbon. The plane was forced to divert to Cork after he became agitated and then fell unconscious, the Irish Times reported. The man became agitated about an hour into the two-hour journey and had to be restrained. He bit a passenger who was assisting the crew to restrain him, according to the Irish Times. After the man was subdued, he then became unwell and collapsed. The captain of the flight declared an emergency landing and the plane landed at Cork airport at around 5:40 p.m., the Independent reported. The man was pronounced dead after the plane landed. The Irish Times reports that a woman, who is believed to have been travelling with the man, was arrested after a powdered substance was found in her luggage. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.
