yep. which is pretty standard. I have once had to tell the Virgin stewardess (back in the early 2000s) to check her co-workers cross check since I don't think she did it. She hadn't.

on the 737-900 the cabin crew was adamant that opening the rear door without disarming it would lead to the slide inflating on the inside.

anyone with better insight on this?
