We fly to Magadan? You're two hours before take-off!

Says Alexander Cheban:
"Want to take a look at what is usually hidden from the eyes of an ordinary passenger? What we do not know, but only criticized for the fact that the flight is delayed, transforming their emotions on flight attendants, without knowing the cause ... Two hours before the flight Moscow - Magadan someone has already arrived at the airport, and someone else is in traffic or approaching the airport by Aeroexpress. In any case, all the passengers have at least another 90 minutes to register, preflight coffee, or simply stroll through the shops in anticipation of landing. But the flight crew and technical services work a great deal, because the whole process is scheduled by seconds from the briefing to prepare the cabin for flight ».
