Are armrests required by regulation to be down and locked during takeoff & landing?
I am on a 50 passenger seat aircraft that has two jumpseats. Only one Flight Attendant is required. If a jumpseat rider occupies the empty jumpseat, does that constitute a fifty‐first seat, triggering the requirement to add a second Flight Attendant?
Most airlines have cabin lights turned off or on the lowest setting before takeoff and landing at night. Is this a regulation or a best practice?
Do flight attendants ever get injured by turbulence? Some crewmembers seem to think they’re immune to injury.
We all get taught galley security and I understand why it needs to be done, but what’s the worst thing that could possibly happen?
Must armrests in exit seats must be fixed, or is it up to the operator to decide whether the armrests can be of the movable type?
In all my travels on airlines around the world, I’ve yet to see an exit seat with movable armrests. I’m not 100% sure if there is a regulation that requires it, however from a functional standpoint, all exit seat armrests are fixed because they contain the tray used by a passenger seated there.
