Mile High Antics!
We’ve all had nightmare flights at some point in our life. Lucky for us, we only have to endure them for a short period of time before arriving at our destination and moving on with our lives. Flight attendants on the other hand, aren’t as lucky…
Millions of people get on planes every day for flights that can last from twenty minutes, to eighteen hours. As a flight attendant catering to that many people, they’re bound to see some odd behavior from time to time.
We asked real flight attendants (and some other airline workers) what the strangest thing they’ve ever seen on a flight was and their answers will absolutely shock you….
Man on the Run
I had a passenger who came back multiple times to the galley to chat. Nothing new, people want to stretch or stave off some boredom. The thing was, the stuff this guy starting talking about weirded me out.
He once was in charge of holding the nuclear codes for the US military. His family owned Wyoming and sold it to the government. He hadn’t been in the US for 16 years because the CIA was after him but he was returning because his father had died but he had to be careful because his brother was out to get him. So much more but I wasn’t writing it down. It was just weird and after a while, a bit unnerving. The guy was seriously intense… (RedLegend619)
‘Weekend at Bernie’s’: The Flight Home
A woman died during a flight, and her daughter was totally fine about it. She had her mom’s head in her lap and was stroking her hair. Asked if the mom was okay and the woman was just like “Oh no, she’s passed on.”
Alrighty then… (modelgado)
So Many Questions…
I found a turd. A giant turd in a nest of tissues and kicked into a corner by one of the aircraft doors. This was about 20 minutes into the flight. (maniacal_paradox)
