Flight attendants serving drink
You and I, as travelers, have suffered with more or less patience delays and cancellations of flights, turbulence at thousands of meters of altitude, the narrowness of the tourist class or eternal routes from the airstrip to the door from where you disembark. But since everything has two faces, there is a type of workers who deal with all of the above from another point of view: the flight attendants. And with more annoying things.
Flight attendants (call me classic but to me that term so correct seems much more sterile than "flight attendant" or "flight attendant") they are surrounded every few hours by people with all kinds of attitudes before, during and after flying. Naturally, the statistics are relentless, some of those people they won't know how to behave and they will do things that are uncomfortable, annoying or even dangerous for the plane and other passengers.
Well, let's not get dramatic, what kind of attitudes are we talking about? A few days ago we received in the Viajablog email a Press Release (yes, readers and readers, I read them almost all) of the Jetcost flight search in which they indicated the 10 things that annoy flight attendants in an airplane.
Review this list because I am sure that at least you have, we have fallen into one of them.
Teasing with security measures
It is true that if something happens to the plane, I am one of those who prefer to have a parachute to a life jacket. But the safety rules must be explained both to the passenger who flies for the first time and to those we still remember when the planes were only propeller. Ok, it's an exaggeration, (I don't remember when the jet planes arrived because I've always known them like this) but with more and more open routes and more popular ticket prices, more and more people fly more frequently.
And more and more people bored at the explanations of security. Only two attitudes are valid, or pay attention or dedicate yourself to something else. But not to imitate the movements of the explanation or make fun of them. They probably find it less funny than you, but you joke about this, just. Except nothing obvious: some fun safety videos on board.
Ryanair Luggage Measurement Box
Occupy all luggage space
When I write this, somewhere in the sky between OVD and BCN, I have a small backpack under the front seat. There was not a gap in the upper compartments to keep it because the airline with which I fly does not give colleagues who gets on board with more than one package, something that others do. And since my seat is in row 8, I have had to board the last ones, when more than a hundred passengers carrying more than one suitcase it has already appropriated the corresponding space, however illegitimate it may be.
So the auxiliaries have to dedicate themselves to traveling the plane up and down the aisle playing Tetris with hand luggage in the compartments for it. They don't like it. Me either, if it's not a last minute purchase in the Duty free.
Hinder circulation through the aisles
Here I raise my hand like an applied student and proclaim that I don't do that. Ok, especially since 99% of the time I get a window seat. But when the one in the corridor has touched me, I have very much in mind that it is a space through which other passengers, the personnel of the plane and the carts with drinks, food and gifts travel.
None of the three are funny to find legs in their path or arms that suddenly stretch almost in the face of one. Like when you cross the road, look to the relevant sides before making sudden movements and don't hinder the passageways.
