I used to be an Air Stewardess for 5 years with one of the world’s best airline.
While we are trained for all sorts of scenarios and eventualities that may happen during our flight from taxi, take-off and landing, there are some things that we are not trained for and will have to react accordingly as the situation calls for it.
While I have been called to respond to people attempting to smoke in the plane’s lavatory and a few minor first aid cases, there was this one incident which I saw and did not respond to it.
Caught couple getting on with something in the plane cabin
I remember that it was a long haul flight, about 13 hours of flight time in total.
During long flights like these, crew would be rostered to take turns to go for their rest as per what the law requires.
The flight cabin would also be dimmed for passengers to get some shut eye.
I was doing my rounds of walking around the cabin when something caught my eye in the dimly lit cabin.
I saw a guy with his long pants lowered to his ankles and he was covered with a blanket.
The female passenger beside him was lying down on his thigh with her head and upper half of the body covered under the blanket and the blanket was bobbing up and down.
I did not know what to do at the moment when I walked pass and they must have noticed my presence because the man suddenly pretend to fall asleep and the movement under the blanket stopped.
I thought to myself if I should stop them or report the matter up to my supervisors but chose not to because they would have to write reports.
After the fight landed, I gave a wink to the couple when they made eye contact with me when they were disembarking the plane.
I saw them at the arrival hall too after clearing immigration and realised that they were strangers as they went their separate ways to their own families waiting for them.
