Re: “Francisco Goya: Los Caprichos brings the celebrated series to the nascent arts hub of Lake City

And yet, another photo of some woman (rather than the more interesting subject in the background). Surely there are other things for you to photograph than random women?

Re: “Filmmaker Andy Coon's web series Often Awesome documents a dearly departed friend's battle with ALS

Ms. Smith,

Thank you for a thought provoking and touching story. This disease impacts people all over the Lowcountry as well. Not to detract from the fine efforts of Mr. Coon, but would it have been possible to make mention of the local efforts being done to help combat this disease? The 8th annual Band Together for ALS fundraiser concert is happening tomorrow Saturday, October 25th 6-11 pm at The Brick House Kitchen on Folly Road.

I thank the Charleston City Paper for their efforts in previous years to help promote this great cause and although there is a blurb on page 79 among the music listings, some of us don't get to the back half of the city paper until Sunday morning.

Interested parties can make donations and purchase tickets at www.bandtogetherforALS.com and visit the event facebook page to see the various items donated for a raffle. At the time of this post the tally so far is $5,735 raised toward the event goal of raising $20,000. I encourage anyone so inclined to visit the website and plan on coming out tomorrow for a great cause and great music from local artists, many of whom are previous winners or in the running for this year's City Paper Music Awards.

Sincerely,

Neil Bailey
James Island

Re: “Abbie Unger teaches wannabe flight attendants how to be lean, mean, life-saving, drink-serving machines

Cid95. You do realize that those airlines are subsidized by their gov't. Unlike U.S. airlines which have to show a profit, first and foremost. Care, comfort are last on the list of U.S. carriers. U.S. carriers havee shareholders to answer too...shareholders want $$$.

"Then I wouldn't have to vote with my wallet and choose the better option, which is generally a non-US carrier."

So, you'd like it if all options were equal, so you could make a choice based on preference?

That's Communism, dude.

The fact that you're "voting with your wallet" means the free market is working - and in the free market, there are no "countries" or allegiances to them.

You really, really, really need to re-examine your ideology. It fails you every time.

Re: “Abbie Unger teaches wannabe flight attendants how to be lean, mean, life-saving, drink-serving machines

There's an error in the headline: "flight attendants" needs to be replaced with "stewardesses".

Fuck's sake, Simon Schatmeyer, this is 2014.

Re: “Abbie Unger teaches wannabe flight attendants how to be lean, mean, life-saving, drink-serving machines

A better option?
Avoid the airlines like the plague.
Why? Because they are a plague. I dumped their sorry asses years ago, and drive everywhere in a nice, comfortable hybrid vehicle. Stop whenever I want, eat whatever and whenever I want, and never get scrunched in a center seat with 300 pounder's on each side. My own music selection, and I can bring a month's worth of clothing so I never have to do laundry on the road, even bring my bowling ball. My luggage always arrives with me!
No more arriving at a connecting airport, and being lied to that my flight will be there in 1/2 hour, when in reality it's never going to arrive that day, meanwhile my customer's equipment is down and the are literally screaming for me to get there.
No more get searched and exposed to x-radiation, or treated like a member of a herd of cattle.
No more saving up frequent flyer miles, only to find out that they have been de-valued when you go to use them.
No longer have to check my thousands of dollars worth of test equipment so it can be damaged, lost, or stolen.
But best of all, I no longer get sick the day after I arrive at my destination.
Granted, this won't work well if you have to travel overseas or to the west coast.
The airlines suck, the hell with them.

Re: “Abbie Unger teaches wannabe flight attendants how to be lean, mean, life-saving, drink-serving machines

I just want the US carriers to take care of their passengers with as much care as the Gulf / Asian airlines do. This will allow them to compete better. Then I wouldn't have to vote with my wallet and choose the better option, which is generally a non-US carrier.

The main challenge for the Asian carriers is linguistic since their business is heavily weighted to intra-regional legs. Flights to Korea need to have some Korean speaking crew, flights to Japan need some Japanese speaking crew, flights to Thailand need some Thai speaking crew, etc. As a result, they are all multi cultural to greater or lesser degrees since they all employ foreign crew for some routes.

The Gulf carriers (Emirates, Qatar, Etihad) can't hire many locals so their crews are very international. Emirates has over 80 nationalities in the air.

Newer planes with better interiors, better food, nicer crew - it's just good business.

Re: “Abbie Unger teaches wannabe flight attendants how to be lean, mean, life-saving, drink-serving machines

I was speaking of what would be in the U.S. if it were not for the civil rights act. On Emirates they have multi cultural crews. But, they transfer you to management or somewhere else in the company after 36. The asian airlines like JAL, Thai and Singapore have asians and only asians as cabin crew.
Btw, I know this because I am a Flight attendant for a mainline carrier. I run into cabin crew from all over the world on layovers. I have talked with them. We have exchanged information. One asian carrier, (cant remember which one) will not hire you if you have a visible scar!!!! If thats the requirements you want the U.S. carriers to adhere to, get ready for it in all work positions.

Re: “The Found Footage Festival returns with a collection of bitchin' bad videos

I might miss the show this time around, but I encourage anyone who can possibly get out to this to go. It's amazing just how much amazing weirdness floats around in the world, just out of sight of most people and these guys are willing to sift through it and curate some of it.....

It's definitely worth the time and money to see this show.

Re: “Abbie Unger teaches wannabe flight attendants how to be lean, mean, life-saving, drink-serving machines

That's false, all those airlines have cabin crew older than 36. White? Straight? Single? You've obviously never flown any of the above nor known anyone employed by them. Talk to me when you know something, please.

Re: “Abbie Unger teaches wannabe flight attendants how to be lean, mean, life-saving, drink-serving machines

Cid95. Those carriers fire at 36. Many discriminate based on race, ethnicity and sexuality. Thats ok with you? Do you really think that only young, single, white, straight people should be flight attendants?
btw, the unions did not make the rule against discrimination based on age, race,religion or gender. The U.S. gov't made it a law. Its called the
Civil Rights Act.
Oh. I forget. My bad. People from the South do not like the civil rights act. People fought long and hard against it in the South.

Re: “Abbie Unger teaches wannabe flight attendants how to be lean, mean, life-saving, drink-serving machines

The free market allows those carriers to hire (and fire) in the best interests of their business. So, they end up with employees that are good at their jobs and suitable for the roles.

US carriers are strangled by unions and hiring rules which mean that, for example, on the Chicago to Tokyo flight you've got jaded grandmothers who have enough seniority to not give a damn.

Get out more, guys.

Cid hates free market American airlines but loves those owned by foreign governments. I wish I could say I am surprised.

Re: “Abbie Unger teaches wannabe flight attendants how to be lean, mean, life-saving, drink-serving machines

Abbie Unger never, ever worked for Delta Airlines. She is a fraud who preys on young, inexperienced job hunters. She also advices people who weigh over 300 pounds that they can get the job as a flight attendant!!! That is an out right lie!!! but she takes their money for resume and coaching while encouraging them. She is a predator!!!!! If Delta finds out she said she worked for them she will be sued!!!!
Why would anyone take her advice on a job she was unable to keep, I cannot imagine.
Every bit of information she charges for is available on Google. She has not given out one original idea. I write this in hopes that future applicants do not pay her for perfectly free information. Check out her FB page. Not one single person who has been hired by the airlines gives her any credit for helping them do so...she does not help them, only takes their money. Please, do not give this woman your money!!!!

Re: “Abbie Unger teaches wannabe flight attendants how to be lean, mean, life-saving, drink-serving machines

Abbie is a hack that preys on people that are too lazy to look up all the free info available online. She was fired from United and ended up at a regional carrier. Don't let her fool you. She is a poor speaker and can't write a sentence without a typo or three. There is no way I would let her rewrite my resume or "coach" me. Furthermore,she hasn't helped receive anyone jobs at the major carriers. Getting a job at a regional only requires a pulse. The author of this article could use a writing class as well,very poorly written. Also,she was NEVER a Delta flight attendant or instructor. Check your sources.

Sadly, there's only the shadow of anything glamorous with US carriers these days.

Fly Emirates, Singapore Air, Cathay or other Asian airlines for that.
