While flying in an airplane, have you ever wondered what goes on in the minds of the flight attendants and the people working on the plane? There are actually so many things that go on behind the workings of a flight that has probably never crossed your mind. This flight attendant was someone who actually went against protocol, revealing the secrets about flights that would probably stun you. If you are curious by nature, we suggest you take a look at what she had to say…

No Real Sleep

Do you trust your pilots with your lives? well, when we are carefree and reassured that our pilots are awake, alert, and on the job, you might be surprised to learn the actual truth. So when we entrust them with our lives, there is something that Jack Stephans ended up confessed: “The hotels they put us in now are so bad that there are many nights when I toss and turn.”

Placed In Bad Neighborhoods

He revealed that some nights get very rough and that they barely get enough sleep. He complains about the hotels that they are kept in, revealing that. “They’re in bad neighborhoods, they’re loud, they’ve got bedbugs, and there have been stabbings in the parking lot.” Obviously, these are not places where one could get a sound sleep, especially after knowing about all the things that have occurred.

There have been so many changes regarding how air travel is executed. It is certainly not what it used to be.

This is certainly one fact that could potentially make you reconsider ever getting on a plane. Also, being struck by lightning is not necessarily a once in a lifetime happening.

Airplanes are built to take it.” From what he reveals, he seems to be unaffected by it…

Once A Year

He further explained his experience, “You hear a big boom and see a big flash and that’s it. You’re not going to fall out of the sky.” There is a notion that every plane gets struck by lightning at least once a year. So you have to make sure that the plane you are traveling in does not get unlucky while you are on board. We sincerely hope that this does not frighten you too much…
