A TikTok video showing a flight attendant calling out rude passengers during a long delay has gone viral. The clip has prompted criticism of the passengers on social media.
The video has now gained more than one million views on the platform.
The flight attendant said to passengers: “Just like you, we have not eaten also.
“The fact that we get insulted and mistreated by passengers over things that we cannot control. It is disgusting.”
Following COVID-19 regulations, face masks are now required onboard the plane and during the whole duration of the flight.
“Hungry or not no one should be treated that way,” one user wrote.
Others were concerned with how the flight attendant was being treated by passengers.
“I’m with the flight attendant but I really hope the airline didn’t discipline him for this,” another TikTok user commented.
The passenger who posted the video commented: “I FULLY support the crew and praise the lead attendant for standing up for his staff and what’s right. Customer service is no cake walk under normal conditions, but for some reason the pandemic has made some customers think they can quadruple down on their self appointed entitlement!
“It’s my hope that this video is just the beginning of a ‘movement’ where we in customer service take a stand and demand to be treated with the respect we deserve,” he said.
