How may we hate you?
Most of us hate flying. The lines, touching elbows with strangers who have their nasty toenails out, two ounces of soda when you are dehydrated. Man’s miracle of flying no longer leaves us in awe, but in eye rolls. You’ve heard complaints from restaurant servers, but what about those awfully sweet-yet-stern flight attendants in the sky who have to tend to hundreds of us plebs? You know they’ve seen some serious stuff. While they can’t tell you off to your face, they can vent anonymously on Reddit.
Go the F*&^ to Sleep!
Well… Two Asian men, one in his 30s and the other in his 60s, almost got in a fight on a more than half empty flight from SFO to Osaka because the 60 year old man was not happy that the younger guy was using the pillow from the empty seat.
The old man kept yelling “NO! One pillow per passenger! NO!” and trying to take the pillow away. The younger guy just had this “WTF?” look on his face.
Laughs were had (not by them) and the flight attendants and captain had to get involved. (NoseDragon)
Had a guy on my flight who would not stop farting. He also hit on the 15 year old girl next to him. Guy was in his late 50s. (ShibaHoo
What happens in Vegas stays on Reddit
On a flight to Las Vegas was this woman who had clearly been drinking in the airport beforehand. On the flight she spilt her water on her sandwich she bought and demanded we compensate her with 5 vodkas and 10 blankets for the mess. Mind you she is the one who spilt the drink on herself, not one of us. As my colleague goes over to wipe the tray table down with some napkins she starts screaming “She punched me this f**king b*tch punched me!” At that point you are for sure going to be getting a warning card because swearing at us plus lying about such a thing is a big no no. This woman then stomps up to first class where I’m working demanding the Captain comes out and fires that little b*tch for punching her in the face right in front of her and starts claiming how my colleague told her she will never fly our company again. Anyways 3 days later this same woman tries to board the plane in Vegas and what do you know 4 of us that were working the original flight are now working this flight and recognize her so she was kicked off immediately for disturbance to flight crew and at that point her ticket is cancelled automatically and she is out all of that money.
Had a black couple sit in the wrong seats another time so when we (me and my colleague who happens to be blackest of black) asked to see their boarding pass they gave it to us and we politely told them how they are actually seated 5 rows behind and not in this row and they started screaming at us how we are racist and they are going to sue us. My black colleague simply goes “I’m racist???” and stretches out her arm against their arm to show they are the same colour.
Been a flight attendant for two years and about every other flight there is one bad passenger unless it is a Las Vegas flight or Kingston, Jamaica flight in which there are lots and lots of bad passengers. (greenoliv)
