  1. Why would anyone in their right mind wants to kidnap a flight attendant in Venezuela, yet alone any flight attendant in the world? That seems kind of stupid to me. Anyone who takes time to kidnap a flight attendant is definitely stuck on stupid in my personal opinion!

    Exactly. It’s not like they work for large, usually foreign companies with access to cash, an incentive to avoid bad publicity, and probably kidnapping and ransom insurance. Why would they want to kidnap those people instead of regular people?

    Definitely stuck on stupid in your opinion.

  3. @ DNN
    Venezuela is a socialist paradise where the people are starving, so kidnapping a wealthy capitalist worker will bring in thousands of dollars. So you can buy food or toilet paper

  4. Some of those flight attendants that fly the AA MIA-CCS route deserve kidnapping! They are a bunch of b$&#ches

  5. How will this work for flights where customers get SSSS? Don’t those flights always require paper boarding passes?
