Takeoff and Landing (2)
Here are the uploads missing from the last report called Takeoff and Landing. On a flight from Helsinki to Chongqing, the view from the cabin camera. And one more tip: If you are a frequent walker or need the rest room very much on a long haul flight, then please choose an aisle seat for the sake of your neighbor. Also, I always see the mess that people leave on the aircraft after a flight and it really upsets me. Why would anyone be so inconsiderate of those who clean up after them? I asked a flight attendant while deplaning this week what she thought about it and she said "there's nothing we can do, it just gets worse every year". It's sad, and a reflection of the society in which we live. As a former airline employee (Eastern-1987-1991) I see that it has never been so bad as in the last few years and I really feel for the ladies and gentlemen who have to witness this poor behavior which is a reflection also of a poor attitude. It seems as if the airline could voice a few suggestions to passengers regarding courtesies like this which are not being practiced during each flight in their cabin announcements. It's a carriage of public transport, not their own personal pigsty or party in a college dorm or frat house. Maybe they should hand out individual recycled paper bags to dispose of waste with reminders printed on them requiring passengers to hand back neatly all the pillows and blankets before landing, too. They are always so nice to the passengers, wouldn't it be nice to have reciprocity?
And here's the video of the landing...
