I was just wondering with all the rioting in Paris if there have been any crews that found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.
I know ALPA put out a special notice for crews to be careful.

If your airline puts you anywhere near where those riots are, you need to get a new job.

The riots are in the absolute slums 30 miles from Paris. You would not venture to those areas even before the riots. Believe it or not the whole thing is not even big news in Paris itself.

It does not affect the hotels around CDG or LeBourget.

Think of it as saying "dont go to Santa Barbera because there are riots in East LA"

I saw on CNN today that travellers from CDG are being advised not to take the train from CDG because it goes through some of these neighborhoods.

When AirTran starts CDG in April, we will probably be staying in one of the affected areas, according to our Hotel Committee.

As for ripping on France, why bother? Every chance they get, they do it to themselves . . . .commie-leaning, cheese-eating surrender-monkeys that they are . . .

Why bash France? Better to finally wise up and see the fruits of liberal socialism and multiculturalism. If we don't then we will suffer the same fate. Yes, some political systems are better than others, not merely "different" and not dependent on one's point of view. Yes, there is such a thing as "good" and "evil".
Commie leaning? We better look in the mirror here in the U.S. Simple, yet frightening (and not the only) examples are our tax system and public school system. Heavily progressive tax brackets and government-schooled children are two ideas that are taken directly from ol' Karl's and Freddie's manifesto.
But it sure is easy to rip the Frogs....

Only two: one is a John Deere sticker and the other is a "LUV Stinks" sticker courtesy of the J. Geils Band. ;)

I don't have any info about Paris or the riots, but I heard a great quote the other day.

"Going to war without France is like going hunting without an accordian. You just leave a bunch of useless noise behind!"

Paris Unrest? This sucks...

When I saw the headline to this thread "Paris Unrest"...I thought that maybe Paris Hilton had come out with another instructional video. But, instead we are talking about how the frogs and their self-viewed utopic society has problems like anywhere else? Geeze...I thought we were gonna talk about something important.

Next time I see a headline reading "Mary Kate and Ashley", I won't jump at the chance to talk about teenage hot twins...it'll probably be about something as inconsequential as beer bottles being thrown against the arc d'triomphe...

Yeah, I guess allowing thousands and thousands of North African and middle eastern immigrants into your country in return for oil rights is a testament to the Frenchies superior culture. Nothing like having a a huge underclass of islamic extremists living in the city with an average unemployment rate of 50 percent. Paris is a beautiful city but they have a huge huge problem brewing over there and it will be interesting to see how long the governments current views on immigration last.

I think the Gov't will eventually run away and wait for us to save them.....again. I don't know about oil, but the price of pastries may go down a bit.

CNN ran a story that talked about the rapidity of movement and communications on the part of the "impoverished" rioters. It stated that they were using cars and scooters to move between attacks and communicated using cell phones and email.

Poverty just ain't what it used to be.

I guess that is all you have to say when you try to defend the indefensible. He was 100% right, and you obviously don't have anything to refute it with.

You're "out" alright. Out of your mind.

Crews Told Not To Leave Hotel

US Airways is telling CDG layover crews not to leave the hotel under any circumstances, day or night. The particular hotel has hundreds of airline crews and is in a very safe part of the 14th arrondissment. Personally, I think it's overkill and I wouldn't hesitate to walk around Paris with the crowds during the day.
