Security officers and flight attendants at China’s Kunming Airlines are making news today thanks to a set of photos now circulating online. In the photos the security officers are “hazing” the flight crew by closing them in overhead bins and closets on board company aircraft.
Looking at the photos there are a few things I do not completely understand:
- There’s tons of space up in the bins. Really quite comfortable. Hard for me to see this as “hazing” in that context.
- Some of the shots show the drop down bins. I always thought those were much smaller than the ones where the doors flip up. If they really are as small as I remember then I’m wondering just how small the FAs are to be fitting in there.
- Such photos exist for many crew on many other airlines all over the world. Just like photos in engine cowlings. Why is this even really a thing?!?
