Good morning from Frankfurt Airport.. Where I’m rather concerned about a major carrier today after the performance they put in.
That carrier’s in question: Lufthansa.
We’ve all done boarding producers in the past – get on the plane, stow luggage, find seat, and sit in safety for the next few hours.
And this is what I was expecting aboard LH953 from Birmingham to Frankfurt this morning (21st November 2014).
Apparently the captain didn’t want to do that today – or the crew miscommunicated her we’re ready for pushback.
Why? The pushed back on time – except THERE WERE PASSENGERS STANDING IN THE AISLE WHEN THE PLANE WAS PUSHING BACK.
YES. THIS HAPPENED DURING PUSHBACK AND TAXI.
On top of that rich vein, not many of the overhead bins were secure, so whilst the plane was preparing to taxi the cabin wasn’t secure.
I know slots and timings are tight on European connections… But this was Downright dangerous.
Nonstop you? How about stopping and ensuring we’re safe to go first???
