The passengers from hell
Yeah, being a flight attendant is low-key one of the most hardcore customer-service jobs in America. And it goes well beyond mere air sickness. Sometimes, some very disturbed people just happen to be in the air, and in a confined flying cylinder, there’s not much to be done for them.
"We had just departed the gate from Los Angeles for New York and had begun the video safety demo," says a Virgin America flight attendant. "As it was playing, I see a woman climb over her seatmate into the aisle and was standing there, motionless. This is a no-no while we are moving on a taxiway, and especially during the safety demo."
The flight attendant rushed up the aisle to see what was happening. "The woman pointed to her seatmate shouting, ‘She's evil!’ over and over again," he continued. "I decided to reseat her in a row that was empty. This seemed to have calmed her down." Or so he thought.
