Read Time:47 Seconds

Aug 04.  US flight attendant said that crews worry that angry passengers will meet them at the gate and have to sprint through airports when incoming flights are delayed, CNN reported.

Allie Malis said these situations were “uncomfortable” for staff. 

She added flight crews could be met with angry passengers when they do arrive at gates. “They think it’s your fault the flight has been delayed,” she told CNN, but “you can’t work two flights at once.”

“Sometimes the passengers are cheering that you’re arriving because it means their plane’s going to go,” or “they’re upset,” she added. 

CNN also spoke to other flight attendants who said such issues, along with unpredictable schedules, negatively impacted crews’ mental and physical well-being.

Malis said staffing issues were also leading to airline staff occasionally sleeping at airports.

Staffing issues have been plaguing the airline issues since travel rebounded dramatically this year from COVID-19 disruptions.
