What better way to close out a week of flight attendant news than video of a flight attendant having a pillow fight with passengers!
No word on exactly how the pillow battle broke out. The airline, for its part, has no problem with its passengers and crew having a little fun. “It’s an example of passengers enjoying themselves in economy class,” a spokesperson said. “And it shows we still offer pillows to our passengers in economy class.”
Here’s the video. Note the big grin on the flight attendant’s face.
We couldn’t really ask for a better contrast to JetBlue flight attendant Steve Slater’s dramatic and rather sad tirade earlier this week. While Slater’s emergency-row adieu highlighted much of what is wrong with modern air travel—overall crankiness, overworked flight attendants and nickel-and-dimed passengers—this video reminds us that flying should be fun for all.
If only the airlines would get that message.
