Speaking on behalf of all of us who fly often, a major Merci beaucoup! to the Air France cabin crew who got 309 people out of a burning A340 with no fatalities. Do you know how big those things are? “Miracle” is the appropriate word. If this isn’t Légion d’honneur territory, I don’t know what is. [Update: Seems like it’s not just the cabin crew, apparently the co-pilot was last man off.]
