TCL 6: The Cartel

Welcome to episode six of The Crew Lounge where we discuss flight atttendant schedule bidding. This week we are joined by panelists Shelby and Jenn.

In this week's news

  • American Airlines is following British Airways' lead by possibly training replacement flight attendants in case of a strike,
  • find out why a man attacked his flight crew on a recent flight to Los Angeles, and,
  • as this weeks "hot topic" we discuss, in detail, flight attendant schedule bidding.

And of course to bring things to a close we answer your questions from the cabin!

We hope to see you every week in the lounge, where we'll dish the dirt and give you a peek behind the galley curtain!  If you're a flight attendant and would like to join us on a future episode, please email us at [email protected]

Thanks for listening!

It was very interesting hearing about the scheduling at airlines, also a little confusing, but sounds like seniority is the key. Your podcasts are about an interview with female pilots?

@Lydia - If you know any female pilots who might be interested in participating please have them contact us.
