Flight attendants reveal the weirdest things they’ve seen on planes

The poor flight attendants

It’s safe to say that as a flight attendant you get to meet a wide range of people.

And along with those people, you encounter some, well, interesting situations.

In a discussion on Reddit, flight attendants have been revealing just how many weird and wonderful things they see as part of their jobs.

Let’s just say there was a surprisingly high number of cases of air stewards having to deal with a passenger’s bodily fluids.

One flight attendant shared a surprising and very sad story of a woman dying on a flight, but her daughter being “totally fine” about it: “She had her mum’s head in her lap and was stroking her hair. I asked if the mum was okay and the woman was just like ‘Oh no, she’s passed on.’”

That wasn’t the only case of someone’s health deteriorating mid-flight though, as one person explained: “One time a morbidly obese guy who’d bought an entire aisle worth of seats had a heart attack mid-flight and s*** himself.”

The poor guy. But he wasn’t alone.

One man whose girlfriend was a flight attendant told the story of a female passenger who was found “dropping a duce” with the toilet door open. The stewardess tried to close the door four times before the woman chased her “down the aisle with her pants and panty hose around her ankles.”

And after receiving a barrage of abuse in a foreign language from the passenger, her son explained that she’d put a curse on the air stewardess.

It must have been quite a sight for the fellow passengers.

Something you certainly wouldn’t want to experience, however, is someone masturbating next to you on board a plane.

“A passenger jacked off into the sick bag of the woman seated next to him while she was in the bathroom,” one flight attendant wrote. “She went to put trash in it later and got jizz on her hand. Was NOT impressed.”

We’re not surprised.
