Last summer a Southwest Airlines flight attendant greeted boarding passengers from inside a bin, scaring some of them, with a video that was posted to Facebook. But surprising passengers in an overhead bin is one thing – you climb up on a seat back and stuff yourself in. What this flight attendant is able to do is truly next level:
It’s a good thing this video wasn’t taken on United Airlines, because that carrier is cracking down on flight attendants posting photos of themselves inside overhead bins (and also sitting in engine cowlings). I don’t imagine – in an era in which airlines are looking for any excuse to fire workers – that this would go over well at Willis Tower.
It’s also good that this isn’t a new interior American Airlines plane with no seat back video and larger overhead bins, because those bins have a trick to closing.
