1) An interesting story – Passenger flashes flight attendant. Authorities get involved. The case is dropped because it happened to a flight attendant and not a passenger or child. It’s like we don’t count!
2) Worst thing about passengers today – mostly it’s just constant complaining – on and on and on – about the most ridiculous things. The problem today is EVERYONE is now quick to react. They “THINK” they’re being nickled and dimed (even though ticket prices are STILL less than they were 15 years ago) so it’s like they feel they have the right to be rude or act out. THey do it to each other, too. I’ll ask grown men to turn off their cell phones several time, a common response, “I heard you.” And they’re still on the phone.
3) How passengers have changed – Today everything is fast and everyone is multitasking. Passengers get on an airplane and don’t know what to do with themselves. They’re all me me me and when I bump into them accidentally they act like I meant to do it. Now they’ve got 4 hours to sit and think about it….to get all worked up over it. Normally people just move on to the next thing in regular life, but not on the airplane
4) Flying today – I worked for a low end carrier and people were ALWAYS going off in handcuffs. When I first started working for the airline I work for now I remember being floored at how strange it was to work on the same planes and yet it was soooo different – everyone was so nice. Now it’s like working for the low cost carrier again.
