How Northwest 253 Affects You
Does anyone remember that BEFORE the Christmas Day incident of Northwest 253 people were told not to congregate in any one area of a plane?
Now that people are told they have to be seated for the final hour, (of a two or three hour flight,) there’s suddenly no problem with 20 people lining up like kindergartners to pee and freshen up. I say kindergartners because on this flight, (inbound from Mexico,) the FAs actually encouraged us to “make things go quickly,” – as there was still a line down to the exit rows approaching the one hour cutoff. Lucky me in the back row…
The fact that four days ago it was BAD for everybody to be up milling about the cabin, but NOW it’s ok provided it ceases 60 minutes prior to touchdown – it just shows how REACTIVE the entire process is… And the people that stopped the potential attack, the PASSENGERS, are the ones being treated like children.
Similar to other flights we were also told not to retrieve items from the seat back or engage in any entertainment other than books, and that our hands may not be covered with clothes or a blanket.
Plot may have been foiled, but the knee jerk reactions creating nonsense and inconvenience are astounding.
