A blogger, who is a serving flight attendant and writes under the pseudonym Dan Air, wrote about the feelings of the pilots and flight attendants who continue to live in the skies and provide their services despite the recent air tragedies….
The touching article which was republished on CNN mentions, among other things, that flight attendants everywhere decided to pin “a small black ribbon to their uniform; to remember our newest angels of the sky”.
This movement, the blogger mentions, shows that all airline colleagues have tight bonds with each other and writes “It doesn’t matter what uniform you wear, what aircraft you work on, whether you fly for a low-cost carrier or work in first class, we are united together and become a source of constant support in times of need”.
Every pilot and flight attendant in the whole world is devastated by the recent tragic incidents. Yet they all continue to fly, with optimism, smile and vision for a better future. Many of them felt it was their duty to continue, “a tribute to our fallen colleagues who never made it home”.
The blogger continues by saying that “I know a number of flight attendants and pilots who have been involved in accidents. Some have managed to return to the skies, others have hung up their wings for good. Some have used their experiences to improve safety in the industry, helping to ensure tragic incidents are as rare as humanly possible”.
