Reply To: Is there a doctor on board?

Very interesting topic DavidGordon

In the case of the CC member with the broken leg, I believe the captain made the right decision to push on to Europe. On a much longer flight, hopefully this would not happen and the captain would immediately return.

On a flight to Tel Aviv, we suddenly found ourselves landing at Bucharest due to a medical emergency. Yes, it was a very long delay but I don’t think anyone would object to this type of diversion.

As for recompense, if I was a doctor on board I would be happy in the knowledge I had used my skills and anything received would be a bonus, although I do agree with lloydah’s comment about the €60.

And in the event of no doctor being on board, do all CC have training in emergency first aid?
