"Apparently, they got into a fist fight on the plane and the pilot decided to kick everybody off the plane. They told us we had to get off the plane because stewardesses were fighting."

I'd be calling my lawyer on the way off the plane. It's time passengers started to fight back.

Hahahahaha, not true hun...maybe now back to $7 at a coffee shop or shoe store, its alot more than that, who knows what really happen and who cares? the passengers where all safe and thats FAA's only concern. That's unexcepatable in the aviation world. Believe Me! Diciplinary actions are in place for those matters. So continue to fly.

Starting f/a's make around $15k/yr. 70 hour guarantee at $16-$18/hr. On call 24/7 20 days a month. Only paid for flight time outside of min day pay if its in your contract.

We got sucked in again, folks. Another 2 minutes of our lives wasted. No video of the fist fight.

What do flight attendants make? I've never given it much thought, do they really make $7/hour? Salary.com shows top of salary bell curve between 47k and 64k, but not much use without information on hours/year. At 52k they'd have to work over 140 hours/week with no vacation to make $7/hour.

Most are union right do they have pensions?

As I recall, on that plane that crashed in upstate New York a couple years ago, the Pilots were only making about $20K a year, which was mentioned in the news story, relating to their competency. I think it was the Colgan Air flight in Buffalo.
