A female passenger on my Austrian Airlines flight from Frankfurt to Vienna decided to use the flight to walk laps up and down the aisle…was it just to show off her body, was she crazy, or perhaps both?
Flaunting Woman Walks Laps On My Austrian Airlines Flight
While we can live and let live on Live and Let’s Fly, sometimes I do wonder what goes through people’s minds on an airplane. Even before we had taken off, a blonde-haired woman wearing short shorts and a sports bra strutted from the front to the back of the aircraft. I only noticed her because she then proceeded to the front and walked back again. She was looking around, perhaps for a friend, I thought? A flight attendant told her (in German) to sit down for takeoff.
We took off. Even before hitting initial cruise altitude the woman popped up again and made a lap from the front to the back of the cabin. She did not even stop in the back.
Flight attendants sprung up about this time to perform their service, which goes much faster these days on Austrian, considering the airline is now buy-on-board in economy class.
After the completion of service, guess who made another appearance? And other one?
I was really confused…what could she have possibly be doing? Other passengers were confused too. If it was attention that she was seeking, she was certainly getting it now.
Several more times before landing she strutted up and down the aisle. You could just see in her face as she walked that she was trying to make eye contact with other passengers, perhaps for approval or validation?
Look lady, you’re free to show off your body all you want…but onboard an airplane is really not the place for it.
We landed and she certainly did not try to fight upstream traffic for one more catwalk. Whatever her motives, I found the whole incident rather strange.
Sorry I only have that picture above. With EU privacy laws as strict as they are, I figured that was enough to make my point.
