Spicy Flight Attendant Shares: Passengers And New Pilot Joined Mile High Club On Nashville Flight

‘Spicy Flight Attendant’ Cierra Misst, who used to work regional jets for Republic Airways which is an Express carrier for American, United and Delta, is back on social media after having her accounts banned as the result of complaints by other cabin crew.

Her advice posts are dubious, like buying on Tuesdays for the cheapest tickets, and assigning yourself a seat at the back of the plane to improve your chances of an upgrade. Her stories of inflight antics are equally questionable.

She’s now claiming that she worked a flight to Nashville, where the crew would overnight, where the passengers were all bachelor and bachelorette party groups. Everyone got handsy, several people joined the Mile High Club – including a new pilot.

This is simply implausible. My best guess, based on the airline and aircraft, is that this would have been a Republic flight operating as American Eagle from New York JFK to Nashville. That gets her a generously long flight for the best chance of this story being true. (Ignore some of the photos in her video, they’re clearly not all of the flight in question.)

  • New York JFK – Nashville is about 2.5 hours on a Embraer 175. Let’s assume it took awhile to get into the mood, and also that there was no activity during the first and last half hour of the flight.

  • There are two lavatories – at the front and the back of the plane. So from a pure efficiency standpoint multiple Mile High Club events would be possible (though these aren’t super large lavatories – degree of difficulty alone cuts against the likelihood this is true).

  • Each pilot would have spent most of their time in the cockpit. Sure, maybe they came out for a bit, but enough time to set the stage for this?

  • Probably each group of passengers was gender-segregated. And while it’s possible some of these incidents were same-sex, any opposite sex encounters would have been between people who had just met. Possible, but how many of these couplings would have happened so quickly?

People have been joining the ‘Mile High Club’ since 1916 when Lawrence Burst Sperry, inventor of the autopilot, took a Curtis C-2 Flying Boat off the coast of Long Island and spent time with a woman whose husband was off in World War I. They acrashed the plane into the bay and were rescued – naked – by duck hunters. If they could manage the feat then anything is possible, but a sudden breakout of Mile High Club antics on a short regional jet flight that even includes crew and where no one was even trying to be surreptitious seems especially unlikely.

  1. WHAT is the thrill in doing it a mile in the air? Boredom? Novelty? Something in the water? Sneaking on the wife left at home? Male hubris? Vampy women? Saying you did? Bragging rights? SO WHAT?

  2. Major airline captain for 35 years… this is a juvenile regional fight attendant starved for attention. Pilots don’t come out of the cockpit to engage in sex on a short flight to Nashville or any flight for that matter… she is full of s***. Even if somebody was inclined to do so you never know there’s an FAA inspector in the back of the airplane or anybody else who would turn the pilot in for breaking security protocols. Why do you publish such ridiculous BS as this?

  3. She was fired almost immediately. She still tries to make her OF page popular, but it’s all lies. Don’t promote her; Gross.

  4. With thousands of pilots and flight attendants it’s not common, but likely. Pilots showing up too drunk to fly is not common-but that happens. Poor judgement and alcohol or drugs can cause things like this to happen anywhere. Never say never. I don’t think its commonplace but to say it never happens is not correct.

  5. Sounds like she struck a nerve. I would not doubt the validity of this story. As a mile high club member ( no lavatory needed) I can say some people just enjoy sex and are always looking for a new experience. There is nothing wrong with doing the most human act anywhere. If pilots don’t come out from time to time and have fun with passengers, the should.

  6. I respect women very much. Even if you’re completely attention seeking trash. This girl is a lunatic. I’m sure she’s enjoying her life scraping by living in her parents basement. Antics like this make it more difficult for people in the actual profession. She obviously has issues. Mental health matters.

  7. Why would anyone want to have sex in a nasty airplane restroom? Can you even fit two adults in one?

  8. Former FA here at the same airline. She’s been fired. As she should be. This is a fabrication. Don’t give fake sprite any more attention.

  9. Does anybody think about what if there are kids on the plane come on ppl you can’t just have sex anywhere

  10. And then there was an American flight to San Juan out of NY in one of those big honkers that had an elevator into the belly from a service station that had curtains on the fore and aft sides that kept the passengers on both sides from seeing those going below to an area oft used by stews ( as they were referred to in those days).
    Accommodations were Spartan, but adequate. A lounge type area where crew, in shifts, could take short breaks after food service was complete and pre landing routine started. In my case, an off duty stew, hosting my completion of doctoral studies, was in high cotton at the compliments of my host, a senior and well respected co-worker. My club admission was complete with candlelight and champagne, 2 years home from Viet Nam, 50 years ago this year. And oh, both single!

  11. What people do in there time. Is no one’s business. If you don’t like something about something r someone. Keep on moving forward. You are looking at some of your our actions and if you get mad. Go spend time together with God and get your own life together for your own good. Good day.!?

  12. Shoot, the bathrooms are small and stinky. I don’t even want to use them for what they bare intended!

  13. I wouldn’t doubt this is all true because a lot of in-flight crew members are total party animals. Variety is the spice of life and they want to experience something new – sight, sound, smell, taste and touch, which is 100% natural. I’m a professional international male escort for ladies only, and I spend a lot of time with female FA’s in the Mile High Club and in their hotel rooms. Remember that song by REO Speedwagon – “Keep on Loving You”? Well that’s me baby! I love to love beautiful women!

  14. You know people have fantasys and no one should judge that’s like judging from wiping from front to back or back to front

  15. You are fantasizing. I know a number of flight attendants and they don’t act like you’re describing, nor do they know of many, if any , that do.
