Video: How JAL flight attendants would respond in an emergency, circa 1985ish

It probably takes a special person to appreciate this, but someone sent me the video above this week. I’m told it’s a video of Japan Airlines flight attendants engaging in an air crash drill. If you watch it, you’ll notice a couple of things. First, the flight attendants are professionals. And second, they are very courteous in that way they bark orders. (At least in the English translations.)

UPDATE: One of my readers tells me this is fictional, from a Japanese  television show called “Attention Please” Has anyone seen the show?

On some flights, Japan Airlines to devote 4 seats for “ladies makeup” and “nursing”

This is not Southern California aviation news, but it is too good to pass up.

On some flights from Japan to Hawaii starting in October, Japan Airlines will devote four seats for “ladies makeup” and “nursing.”

Some of you might not believe this, so I figure it’s best to quote directly from the release. Here we go:

Special place is available for ladies’ make-up* in the flight departing from Japan
“The 4 seats in the rear of the Economy class will be set up for Ladies’ make-up from October 1, 2013. This place is also available for nursing, too.”
*The service will not be available during the seat belt sign on.
