WEEKLY TRAFFIC MEMORANDUM .
■ August 2, 1948
Progress is being imde on the uniform shirts which a number of you ordered quite
some time ago. The factory has promised them not later than the last of this week,
I never thought that I would have to warn you fellows about putting on too many
passengers^ but the time has come. There have been two known cases of having mor*e
passengers aboard than there were seats and safety belts for them. Let us nft ^et
strictly against CAA regulations for
be provided with a separate seat belt and a
oeparate safety belt; Please be guided accordingly.
More about mis—use of the teletype circuit;
Ao Do not use TT for requisitioning 'supplies except in an emergency. Fill out the
regular requisition form (PA-4) and send in GOMAT.
Do not use TT for placing people on mailing list. Handle through GOMATc
C, Above all, do not use for idle chit-chat.
The other evening when Flight 16 sighted strange objects in the sky, the idle
chit-chat took up four feet of TT paper. Had all stations been on the circuit,
there would have been 48 feet, or 1,020 inches, of paper consumed. This not
or^ly jams the circuit but is useless waste.
Also important--when advised by flight control that the chances of a flight are poor
lor getting into a certain station, or stations, make sure every passenger is notified
accordingly and given the option of deplaning at a previous station and continuing by
, transportation, holds over for another flight, or remains aboard at his
+-K ■(- ° being carried to a station beyond his or her destination. Be sure
that the passenger understands that, in the latter case, his return trip will be at
"^4- A expense* Make this clear. Be sure that the passengers are advised and
understand the situation and just what we will and will not do®
Some stations are failing t6 validate baggage tags. Make sure that this is done just
as you do with tickets^ The validator is of great assistance in speeding up the
straightening out of a mishandled bag.
Pay strict attention to all baggage at the time it is being checked in. If it appears
the passenger's attention to the damage and be sure to use the
“RECEIVED IN DAMAGED CONDITION BY. PAI" stamp. ££-5He_to_ube_^
