They say "doors to manual" on US airlines too. The pilot (or co-pilot) announces this over the PA, as part of the pre-landing routine, instructing the flight attendants to set the doors to open manually. A cheap jibe, as applied to Mater Middleton (of whom I'm no particular fan, but mocking her for actually having held a job is the sort of tacky peculiar to noxious Anglo toffs).

Thanks, Eric--just goes to show how little I fly -- or maybe how little I pay attention when flying. I don't ever recall hearing that. Agreed 100% that's a cheap shot. Beneath the dignity of those young men, it seems to me. And not particularly creative at that. So I guess I'd say it's doubly offensive.
