I mean, what kind of announcements do you make?
Cameroon does have a death row but hasnít implemented the penalty since 1996 .

cameroon isnít organized enough to figure this out. Iíve been to Douala many times with a previous airline. Their politicians live in Paris and fly back on AF to sit session. Also, you donít get put onboard a 767 and escorted out of the US for overstaying a tourist visa. Every pax on a deportation flight is a convicted criminal. Usually a violent one or a drug offender(think large amounts).

Yes of course you can bid around them. If you have the seniority. And you don't catch one on a reserve day. So basically not unless you've been here since God was a child.

"Humanitarian reasons"! Lololol. I would love to hear the stories of woe and teeth-gnashing if someone tried.

Maybe you're more cut out for the Peace Corps?

Youíll be flying sex offenders too. They also get deported. My last flight had someone who was convicted of incest wirh a minor. So donít apply for omni, ati, atlas or any other acmi if you have moral objections. Fed ex probably flew something offensive too. I saw a pax with a MAGA hat on United last week also.

This sounds like a reporter. 1 post, and October 2020 join date. Be careful even with sarcasm.

not everyone who is deported is violent criminal but they all did break the law not including arriving illegally. When I did these flights you'd get the sheet with everyone and their crimes. I'd say 10% were really bad people the rest were caught driving without a license etc.
when they're returned to their home country IF they were wanted there they'd go to jail if not they were free to go.
yes some were executed. Mostly the MS 13 guys.
