Passenger Alexander Tung Cuu Le has been charged after he reportedly punched a flight attendant in the back of the head on an American Airlines flight, officials said.

Le asked to take a vacant first-class seat, but was then refused by the cabin crew. The passenger then stood in a two-fisted fighting stance and swung an arm at the crew member but missed.

Acts of violence against our team members are not tolerated by American Airlines,” the airline said in a statement. “The individual involved in this incident will never be allowed to travel with us in the future, and we will work closely with law enforcement in their investigation.

The incident occurred on American Airlines flight 377 from San José del Cabo, Mexico, to Los Angeles International Airport on September 21.

According to a statement from an FBI special agent supporting the complaint, the in-flight confrontation began when Le got up from his seat and asked for coffee during beverage service, grabbing one flight attendant by the shoulders.

Law enforcement officers met the aircraft upon arrival, and arrested the passenger. The airline thanked the crew members and said the airline was giving them the support they need.

The passenger has been banned for life by the airline. He was charged with one count of interference with flight crew members and attendants, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison, the Department of Justice said.

The national carrier of Pakistan – Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) – has made it obligatory for its cabin crew to wear undergarments while wearing plain clothes.

The internal instruction memo by PIA’s General Manager Flight Services Aamir Bashir has stated that it had come to the observation that there had been complaints about the attire of the flight attendants as they reach their offices, stay at hotels and travel to other cities.

“It has been observed with great concern that a few cabin crew tend to dress casually while traveling intercity, staying in hotels and visiting various suffices. Such dressing leaves a poor impression on the viewer and portrays a negative image of not only the individual but also of the organisation,” an internal memo to employees read.

The cabin crew has been instructed to be dressed appropriately in formal casual clothing including undergarments.

Grooming instructors and senior shift in-charges at the airline have been told to monitor crews, and report back if there are any deviations from these policies.

Bashir warned that strict action would be taken against those flight attendants who did not follow the guidelines.

Virgin Atlantic is now allowing male cabin crew and pilots to wear skirts and female colleagues to wear trousers, so staff can “express their true identity” at work.

Staff including plane crew and pilots will now be given a free choice between the company’s ‘red’ option, previously most commonly worn by female flight attendants, and the ‘burgundy’ option, previously worn by male flight attendants.

PinPep

Virgin, which has previously removed the ban on tattoos and makes the wearing of make-up optional, said it wanted staff to “wear the clothing that expresses how they identify or present themselves”.

The carrier has also changed its ticketing system. Travelers who hold passports with gender-neutral markers can select “U” or “X” gender codes on their booking as well as the gender-neutral title “Mx.”

New uniforms have been created by British fashion designer Dame Vivienne Westwood.

Jaime Forsstroem, cabin crew at Virgin Atlantic commented: “The updated gender identity policy is so important to me. As a non-binary person, it allows me to be myself at work and have the choice in what uniform I wear.”

Michelle Visage, a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race Allstars, said: “People feel empowered when they are wearing what best represents them, and this gender identity policy allows people to embrace who they are and bring their full selves to work.”

Norwegian Air has agreed to purchase 50 Boeing 737 MAX 8 aircraft. The agreement also includes options for an additional 30 aircraft.

The 50 aircraft are due to be delivered between 2025 and 2028. Norwegian expects to finalise the order by the end of June.

The deal includes compensation to Norwegian as settlement for previous disputes over Max and Dreamliner aircraft deliveries and technical issues, triggering a financial gain of 2 billion Norwegian crowns ($212.2 million), the airline said.

The purchase agreement demonstrates Norwegian’s continuously strong commitment to operate a modern and fuel-efficient fleet. The Boeing 737 MAX 8 is approximately 14 percent more fuel-efficient compared to the previous-generation aircraft, putting the company on strong footing to achieve its target of reducing emissions by 45 percent by 2030.

Virgin Atlantic cabin crew members will now be allowed to display tattoos. The airline becomes the first British carrier to relax restrictions on visible body art.

Estelle Hollingsworth, Chief People Officer at Virgin Atlantic, said: “At Virgin Atlantic, we want everyone to be themselves and know that they belong. Many people use tattoos to express their unique identities and our customer-facing and uniformed colleagues should not be excluded from doing so if they choose.”

The airline had previously prohibited its employees from displaying their tattoos. Uniformed employees had to either cover up visible tattoos with plasters or makeup, or request a special long-sleeved shirt instead of the standard short-sleeved version while on duty.

“But now, employees can show off their ink to the world, while still representing Virgin Atlantic in their uniform,” the airline said.

 

“Many people use tattoos to express their unique identities and our customer-facing and uniformed colleagues should not be excluded from doing so if they choose,” Virgin Atlantic’s Chief People Officer Estelle Hollingsworth said in a statement.

However, the easing of the ban does not extend to all types of tattoos.

Virgin said that face, neck, and head tattoos must remain covered for the time being, although it was currently reviewing that policy. Offensive tattoos are also required to be covered up.

In 2019, Virgin Atlantic dropped its make-up rule for female cabin crew, again becoming one of the first main airlines in the country to do so.

In 2021, United Airlines allowed cabin crew members to display their arm tattoos, nail polish and “natural looking” make-up.

Singapore Airlines (SIA) is seeking to hire around 2,000 cabin crew members as air travel continues to pick up pace.

More than 800 cabin crew members have already been hired since hiring started in March. Amongst these new hires, three out of five are former crew members who had left the job.

SIA chief executive Goh Choon Phong said in an interview: “We have been proactive, we anticipated that things are opening up and that we want to be ahead of the curve.”

 

“As many of the new cabin crew members had formerly worked at SIA Group, this reduces the amount of time needed to train them” – he added.

In September 2020, the SIA Group, including Scoot, had in September 2020 reduced around 4,300 positions across its airlines. The group had to lay off fewer than 2,000 employees.

Goh said that none of the crews or planes are fully utilised yet as air travel is still recovering from the pandemic.

“But we are deploying them so that they can all be operationally ready, and whenever we want to introduce increased frequencies or new points, we can easily step it up because the resources are already there and trained,” he said.

The planes and crew members were deployed on a regular basis so that they can be operationally ready.

In addition, SIA predicts that its passenger capacity would hit 61 per cent of pre-pandemic levels for the first quarter of the 2022/2023 financial year and 67 per cent by the second quarter.

The group also expects to handle over 70 per cent of its pre-Covid-19 destinations by the end of the second quarter.

Dubai-based carrier Emirates Airlines has announced plans to go on a worldwide tour to recruit cabin crew as it seeks to bolster its workforce.

In October 2021, the airline planned to hire more than 6,000 employees over the next six months in response to the easing of COVID-19 regulations around the world.

A statement by the airline said at the time that “additional pilots, cabin crew, engineering specialists and ground staff will be needed to support the airline’s ramp-up of operations across its global network in response to the sooner-than-expected surge in customer demand.”

Emirates is currently hiring people from 30 cities across the globe until June 2022.

In this latest drive, the Emirates team will travel from Australia to the United Kingdom. It will also visit several European cities, as well as Cairo, Algiers, Bahrain, and Tunis.

Abdulaziz Al Ali, Emirates group’s executive vice president for human resources, said: “There’s no more exciting airline than Emirates for anyone interested in a flying career, and we’ve received tremendous interest since we began our recruitment drive for cabin crew in November.”

 

“While parts of the application process are done online, we always make the effort to meet our candidates in person whenever we can, and that is why our talent acquisition team is doing a whirlwind 30-city tour over the next 6 weeks to assess prospective candidates.”

The average starting salary for Emirates cabin crew is Dh9,770 per month, and the airline trains about 120 new recruits each week at Emirates Aviation College, an Emirates representative said last month.

All Emirates crew are based in Dubai, with company-provided accommodation, tax-free salary and other benefits.

Who can apply?

  • More than a year’s experience in hospitality and customer service
  • Positive attitude and the natural ability to provide excellent service in a team environment, dealing with people from many cultures
  • Minimum qualification is high school graduate
  • Fluent in written and spoken English (ability to speak another language is an advantage)
  • At least 160 cm tall and can reach 212 cm while standing on tiptoes, to enable you to reach emergency equipment on all aircraft types
  • No visible tattoos while you’re in Emirates cabin crew uniform
  • You’ll be based in Dubai and will need to meet the UAE’s employment visa requirements

British Airways is seeking to recruit at least 2,000 new cabin crew members amid concerns staff shortages will hold back the UK’s summer travel boom.

Reservations have already begun to multiply since the government announced that COVID tests would no longer be needed for vaccinated travellers arriving in the UK from February.

Heathrow said companies operating from the airport will need to recruit up to 20,000 people this summer and vacancies could act as a “schedule constraint”.

British Airways is allegedly contacting former employees who were among the 10,000 people who lost their jobs when the pandemic broke out in 2020.

Flight Attendants could earn up to £28,000 a year plus a tax-free allowance.

Although the travel sector was extremely hard-hit by the pandemic, the situation looks promising and airlines are hoping to reach pre-pandemic levels this year.

Czech budget airline Smartwings has made the first-ever landing of a Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in Antarctica. The landing at Troll Airfield at the northern tip of Antarctica took place on January 26, 2022. The flight was chartered to transport members of the Norwegian Polar Institute to their base in Antarctica.

The landing came after a 15,680-kilometer flight from Oslo to Antarctica via Chad and Cape Town. The flight lasted 6 hours and the plane stayed in Antarctica for 2 hours, before taking off for Oslo again.

The 3,000 metres long runway covered with ice is used for landing and takeoff. The thick of the ice was measured and analyzed prior to operation to allow takeoff and landing according to regulations and aircraft manufacturer standards keeping all the safety margins.

Landing on a glacier requires a specially trained crew. All crew members had to undergo special training to become familiar with the area and the airstrip.

The weather was closely monitored 5 days prior to the operation. For this type of operation, the company’s air traffic control will assign at least one dispatcher who will constantly monitor and evaluate the condition of the airstrip and the weather and will remain in touch with the crew in case of any changes.

Last year, an Airbus A340 operated by Hi Fly was the first Airbus aircraft to accomplish this difficult landing.

Smartwings Group aircraft fly to more than 400 airports around the world per year. Until now Antarctica has been the only continent where Smartwings plane has not landed yet.
