Currently trying to pull an all-nighter due to my 2.30am start time tomorrow night for Osaka, so what do I do? Look up websites about plane crashes. It all started looking up different aircraft types on this online encyclopedia, then at the bottom of each entry for Airbus, Boeing, Concorde, Douglas etc. it had the incident count including hijackings and stuff. Kinda freaked me out a little. On this one crash site there was no mention of our airline whatsoever which is very very good. Made me feel better. I also decided to take pictures of my BCRC uniform.

Yes, when we're not in our loose-fitting nylon power suits, we're in fluro blue pyjamas. I would prefer wearing these on board for sure, they're extremely comfy (I take them for sleeping in suring cold climate layovers) but they're no where near as sexy.

If I'm missed it out or poorly explained, BCRC stands for Bulk Crew Rest Compartment. I personally think it should stand for Bulk Cargo Rest Compartment, as I'm sure pairing bulk and crew is sure to draw a few scrunched noses from the ladies. On the Airbus 340-500, the section usually reserved for late checked luggage, animals, and crew luggage (Known as the Bulk Cargo Compartment) has been turned into the cabin crew rest area, complete with video on demand, seat belts etc etc. No animals on this flight. Well, not in the cargo hold anyway :-) I'm sure the Osaka passengers will be very nice. And following my previous post about Karma, can anyone suggest a charity to donate my spare Rand to? Thanks.
