  3. the public address system and the crew interphone system at the approved flight attendant take-off and landing station referenced in (e) is serviceable;
  4. emergency and normal procedures in the flight attendant manual clearly reflect the differences when one flight attendant is carried and when more than one flight attendant is carried;
  5. the flight attendant is assigned to occupy the approved flight attendant take-off and landing station located next to a floor level exit;
