Premises

  • For usual communications between pilots and ATC, a specific phraseology is followed.
  • Flight attendant and pilots can communicate thanks to intrecoms when flight attendants and pilots must communicate aboutIn case of an an unexpected event (e.g. a sick passenger), flight attendants and pilots can communicate through intercom.
  • Pilots (particularly the captain) can speak to all people in the cabin (including flight attendantattendants) through the public address system.

Do the communications between the cockpit and the cabin made thanks to the public address system follow a specific phraseology to deliver informations to flight attendant? Are there some messages following a specific phraseology that trigger a reaction among the flight attendants (e.g. preparation for flying accross turbulence), but passenger may think the message is address to them?Questions

I think of the coordination of the preparation of the cabin for the different flight phases (taxiing, taking off,...) or indication of the strength of turbulence (implicating the flight attendant may not begin to move carts along the cabin).
