Friday, August 22, 2008So yesterday I finally graduated as a brand new first class crew member. It was only 6 days in training college, but virtually all of it was spent in the service simulators, and the nights were sleepless and full of studying and coffee-drinking. I didn't exactly pass with flying colours, but as far as service goes, a pass is a pass, and I'll be taking to the skies in the best cabin of them all for many years to come.
What used to happen at the graduation ceremonies, at least when I was an Abinitio, was that all the batches had to perform a dance routine set to some form of music, whether it be classical, fast-paced techno, R&B or pop. Our routine was set to Frank Sinatra's Come fly with me, and was quite cheesy indeed. I KNOW there's some footage floating around of it somewhere, but mercifully my mate Nayan isn't familiar with Youtube and as such the general public is spared from my very awful attempts to dance.
Since then I found out (at my Business Class graduation) that they had since stopped this practice, which is disappointing as the new recruits are spared the same torture we all once had to go through. It was also something to look forward to after what can be a draining afternoon of hearing one member of management after another say basically the same thing.
And then I saw this...
It seems we're not the only airline that gets their steward/esses to dance. Whether they were asked to, or they just wanted to fill up their lunch breaks at college with some light excercise, here are the Korean Air girls dancing to "Trying to tell me to dance". In full uniform. 6 comments
