If thereâ€™s any group of people who have seen and heard everything, itâ€™s flight attendants. Maybe itâ€™s the recycled oxygen, the access to booze, or the cabin pressure, but air passengers say the darnedest things. And they usually say them to flight attendants.
â€œPeople donâ€™t have a filter with us,â€ says veteran flight attendant Emily Witkop. â€œThey have that comfort level with us where theyâ€™ll say anything.â€
These crazy flight attendant interactions are often funny, but sometimes not so much (in Dubai, a British man recently was convicted of telling an Emirates flight attendant he would chop her into pieces if she didnâ€™t serve him another drink).
Whether rude or outlandish, thereâ€™s very little flight attendants havenâ€™t heard.
