Reply To: Is there any need for a pre-flight safety briefing from cabin crew?

Back to Forum


Even after all my years of travelling by air, I always put down my reading material and at least, pay attention – even if I can recite the script by heart. I do this as a sign of respect to the crew and as an example to fellow passengers.

I am constantly amazed and annoyed by the ignorant bloody fools who think it’s ok to talk all the way through the briefing as though it doesn’t apply to them.
I have to say, it also annoys me that cabin crew very, very rarely ask the offenders to be quiet – in my opinion, cabin crew should absolutey insist that people cease their conversation for the 2 mins that the briefing actually takes.
Rant over 🙂
