A dead head is an airline crew member, a pilot or a cabin crew, who is assigned to fly to a particular destination to assume a duty. In the flight where he or she is in, she’s not supposed to work as a crew. He or she shall be in a complete uniform, thus making him or her able to sit on a jumpseat if the flight is full. Deadheading crew are also paid based on their flying time.

A dead head crew is different from a non-revenue. Crew member who use non-rev tickets are using their company’s benefits for their personal travels. If a flight is full and there are no available jumpseats, a deadheading crew can bump off a revenue passenger. However if the flight is full, a revenue passenger or a non-rev crew cannot bump off a deadhead. Non-revs are not allowed to sit on the jumpseat, not unless they are in their full uniform, and as per the captain.

As to most airlines, sitting on a jumpseat makes you an “able crew”. Meaning in case of an emergency, you will be able to assist the operating crew and passengers during evacuation.

A new comfort food though. Enough about eating chocolate cakes, McDonald’s french fries, Oreos, clam chowders and everything else. I’m starting to like tuna with pesto slammed between two toasted wheat bread. That’s what my batchmate made me when we flew together for Vancouver. So I decided to make some for myself a day after we arrived. Weather over Vancouver was crazy. Think about having a chilly weather over there and scorching heat over Manila. Makes you go crazy and would want yourself to lock inside a room with a really cold air conditioner.  The purser also brought this whole chocolate cake from Conti’s which everybody loves because it was her birthday three days ago. Of course the cake didn’t last for more than fifteen minutes!

Surprisingly for this layover, I didn’t get any MAC products. But all I need is that MAC 219 brush that I can’t get my hands on.

So i will have a long three-day off again. I guess I’ll clean my room for tomorrow and throw out junk from last year. I will also try to redecorate my room for a change this year. I’m clearly thinking of a Paris-themed room. Paris, France that is, not Paris Hilton. Hehee.

Good luck to the PEXers who keeps on trying (and not definitely quitting) on applying for a cabin crew position. Do not let others pull you down. You’ll soon have your own wings. 🙂

Since I cannot place a chatbox, shoutbox, tagboard, whatever you may call at my side bar, I will just place a link there so everyone could place messages, questions, but no haters please. 🙂

Happy Monday!

So I’ve not been online for a few weeks now. Having a great roster requires you to have a normal life too. To start the year off I attendant two baptisms and three weddings. Three weddings! Reminds me of the movie 27 Dresses perhaps. Anyway, it almost made me broke on buying a few dresses and shoes as well. And yes some presents too. So for next month, another event to do are a few bridal showers and 18th birthdays. I think it is now the point in my life where I would attend numerous bridal showers and weddings. Done when we  attended 18th birthdays every month way back in college. But I think it’s lovely to see friends and some family members getting married finally.

Anyway next month is almost my birthday month. My mom gave birth on a Valentine’s Day. So cheesy. 🙂 So yeah next month will be the start of my quarter life. And I cannot wait for the next years after that.

Tomorrow I shall be back on flying again after my three days off. Having a normal life was difficult for the past three days. It’s not easy to squeeze friends, family, boyfriend, and some errands in just three days. I also forgot to watch the three DVD’s that I got last week. And forgot to have time for myself like go to have a simple manicure and pedicure or even a relaxing body massage for that matter. So I’ll probably plan that for next week. So for today, off shall I go to the supermarket to buy some snacks for my duty tomorrow and some cat food.

Have a great Monday!

after three days of my arrival, digging into my trolley – soon I realized, I left my USB flash drive in San Francisco.

Bummer. 😦

I know it’s late so I will not wait another year to greet everyone. Thankfully I didn’t celebrate the Holidays this year on board. And not on New Year’s too. Also I have a wonderful roster this coming January.

Christmas in our home was fine. Finally we were complete this year. Last year I was in mid air, my uncle was in the US for some convention, and two of my cousins were on duty at the hospitals for their rounds. So for this year, nobody missed Noche Buena. Surprisingly I didn’t eat much! I used to binge and starve myself but last December 24th, I think I only ate a piece of chicken, and the rest were mostly desserts. Hehe. Guess that comes with the stress that normally a cabin crew would have. Cause I flew the other day and woke up the following day so there’s no enough room for appetite. On the other hand, I finally got the headphones and portable speakers that I want. Thanks to my mom and my tita!

And a fellow cabin crew gave me a gadget travel organizer that I really need.

So for today I’ll be staying home for a while, give the dog a bath, do some errands, and be normal again. 🙂

Happy Monday!

I’m so lucky to have days off on Sundays for this December’s roster. More time for my family, friends, and my caprichosahan. On my way to the kitchen, I saw this plastic box that I haven’t seen in years.

Sorry for the image, it’s kind of blurry because I just woke up and took a shot. Anyway, I love this batch of cookies. Next to Mrs. Field’s. It’s soft, moist, and chocolatey! Now it feels more like at home. When I was in high school, my mom would always buy chocolate chip cookies from everywhere. When I started to love these ones from Pricemart, I can’t get enough of it. See there’s only two left. 🙂 Now I’m getting more batches so I can bring in flight.  Also, there’s more to love. The muffins that are big enough for one, and the sumptuous apple pie that’s to die for.

Everything’s done! For the Christmas shopping of course. Now comes the most harassing part. The gift wrapping. I haven’t wrapped the remaining presents. So for this day off, I’ll be locked in my room, eating more cookies and wrapping more presents. Then this late afternoon, I’ll probably head to hear mass and have bibingka all over again. I’ve missed these kind of things not to mention Simbang Gabi, since  I have a crazy life ahead of me now. So for this Sunday, I’ll take everything nice and slow, and make everyone feel that for a day, I am a normal person just like everybody else inside the house, not worrying about what to pack for the next layover.

So, right now I’m quite excited for the Christmas gift that I’ve purchased for myself! I’ll have to wait for a few more days though. 🙂

Enjoy the rest of the day! ❤

2. Do this twice. (FYI, double coating the cheese prevents it from oozing out of its breadcrumb casing.) Then roll in breadcrumbs.

3. Fry mozzarella cheese until golden.

I also prepared a different sauce based from tomato. Other of my co FA’s love tomato sauce. And always remember to pack your snacks in a tight container or a Ziploc will do.

What a day to start the week. Another LAX for tomorrow! I am not yet finished on my Christmas shopping. I haven’t wrapped the remaining presents that are gathering dusts in my room. Also I ordered personalized gift tags for a change. I’ve been using gold permanent markers for quite a few years now. After the buying, the wrapping and labeling, I am now wondering on what should I get for myself this Christmas. Although I believe I am now late to make a wishlate, it’s now or never!

Have a great week ahead!

In the aviation world, not all passengers, our customers would be always right. You yourself requested for an emergency exit seat you said. So you had it. A crew member greets and briefs you with her warm smile on a beautiful Monday morning, telling you that since you are seated on this row, you have to take some SOP’s and  a little nudge from the crew. Please do not tell us that you fly more than we do. Emergency exit rows are kept free from any obstruction – bags, shopping bags, stuffed toys, everything. Please do not tell us that this is the first time that a crew member asked you politely to stow your bags. A laptop bag, your purse, and 2 shopping bags. Please do not tell us that you always put your bags under those seats in front of you, since it does make sense that during an emergency, your bags would be caught up in the exit, and would make the evacuation a bit slow. For the sense that you will get out first, since you will open the exit window for that matter. Please do not tell us that you’ve read, and memorized the emergency instruction cards that are neatly placed in your seat pocket. We have the prerogative to reseat you, if you don’t comply. And please, do not raise your voice, embarrass the  crew, shoving your Louis Vuitton and telling us that if something gets lost from your precious bag, then it’s our fault? Hmm. Tell us if you’re a frequent flyer. Or better lie. Because it’s an embarrassment for us, your fellow Filipinos, to see you, make a scandal just because you cannot barely understand simple instructions.

Sincerely yours,

your most patient crew
