With the recent United Airlines Incident, some people are becoming paranoid of flying. Now, a video of a woman flying on American Airlines sobbing went viral.
The woman’s side of the story was that the flight attendant removed her stroller and hit her with it. After that, the male flight attendant also started to challenge a male passenger to a brawl.
Critics were quick to jump on the bandwagon and stated that the situation was mishandled. However, most of them failed to realise that the video did not capture the whole incident. So what exactly happened?
The Real Story
Luckily, we managed to find a Facebook post that fully describes the full story.
Yes, challenging the passenger was totally unprofessional and he deserves his suspension.
Apparently, the woman was trying to make a scene and was being selfish. It is also nice to see that the other flight attendants are trying to solve the problem calmly.
Here are a few pointers to remember the next time you are on a plane
1. The staff have the rights to remove you from the flight if they deem you unfit for flying. This is how they ensure you are having a pleasant experience. Don’t start whining or make a scene because it will just prove their point.
2. The cabin space is small. There’s a reason why the budget airline has luggage size restrictions. Don’t try to squeeze your baggage all over the plane.
3. Follow the flight crew’s instruction. Just follow.
4. The flight attendants are humans too. Understand that they are just doing their jobs so don’t give them a hard time unnecessarily. You shouldn’t do things that you don’t want others to do to you.
That’s all for this story. It is always important to understand both sides of the story before making a stand. This will make the world a better place.
