    Now if only “champaign” were spelled correctly…

    An era that seems like forever ago…you’re not kidding! Look at how attractive those flight attendants are are!

    Best airline party ever 🙂
    I will say the pilot group were certainly deeply divided and it was always best to avoid the crazed group.

    I’m so confused. How was the photo of the flight deck? You’d think pilots would know the difference between flight deck and galley?? And how is you chilling with flight attendants with a bottle of champagne responsible for pilot furloughs? Like I said, I’m very confused.

    Thanks for the memories of this event Seth. I too attended this (and all the CO DOs) but unfortunately was not on this particular part of the event.
    It brings me back to a much happier time in this (whatever we call it) communitiy–a community that seems to be taken over today by the loud voices of entitlement and complaining. It harkens back to a time when customers were (largely) valued by airlines and not scorned. This seems like a lot longer time ago than it actually was.

    I was in the travel industry in the “golden days” of the late 70s/early 80s — it seemed tour companies had to compete on the lavishness of the bash. Far too many brain cells were drowned by open bar parties.
