Stories from the soul
An exciting article was about a woman with down syndrome who was accompanying her for a day. His dream was fulfilled by the airline Jetstar Airways.
It excited us too the story of the passengers who made the charter to reward the cabin crew. It happened on ZT1155, September 25, which was operated by Airbus A321 (YL-LCZ) Thomas Cook.
As you well know, Thomas Cook Group UK went bankrupt, including Thomas Cook Airlines. The bankruptcy of the giant Thomas Cook affected more than 600 tourists, over 000 being from the UK. Returning to flight ZT150, it was operated by Thomas Cook crew, but with the support of the British government. And cabin crew members volunteered to fly to bring affected passengers home. This impressed Michelle Jubb and, along with other passengers, she managed to mobilize the entire plane for a charter. Many of the tourists were really generous in this regard. The lump sum was handed to the head of the cabin, who burst into tears.
Incidents and accidents
The year 2019 brought to the public's attention an incident that happened on board a TAROM plane. On July 17, on board a TAROM plane, which was supposed to operate the RO101 flight from Bucharest to Cairo, a skirmish between 2 passengers, crew and law enforcement.
