right, because all crashes are 100% fatal and you're a freaking expert at everything right?

aren't those emergency drills they perform mandatory? Nothing in the article that said this dancing replaced that. She still had a job to do, and I am pretty sure she performed the emergency drills.

The same goes for flight attendants. Their PRIMARY job is to get you on and off the plane safely. It's NOT (as commonly believed) to serve you drinks and to serve as eye candy for you.
In what way are your two examples similar to what's happening here?

Is this flight attendant dancing while the plane is nosediving out of the sky?

Is this flight attendant dancing during an evacuation process where half the plane is on fire?

There doesn't seem to be much context surrounding this video, but there is nothing to suggest that there is anything important happening or should be happening at that time.

Maybe the plane is just waiting on the tarmac for takeoff and all the standard emergency instructions have already been given.

A proper analogy with a police officer would be this:

Exactly. I would find it a bit more reasonable to have a problem with this:


But still, I don't think it's a big deal.

I guess it's a matter of personal opinion then.

If you see your flight attendant as a waitress in the sky then it's no big deal.

If you see them as more of a conductor then no, it's not professional.

Flying isn't supposed to be fun or enjoyable (at least any more). It's a bus in the sky at this point in history. Get me to my destination on time, in one piece, and with the least possible discomfort and I'm happy. But then again according to all of you I probably have a stick up my ass for thinking this way.

Huh?

I'm supposed to see my flight attendant like this lady:





EDIT: OHHH Sorry I was confused, I'm supposed to see my flight attendant as a CONDUCTOR:



Yesss, that helps greately. I'm much more at ease now...

Why are you so bitter? Unless you are some sort of feminazi or a bitter airline stewardess yourself it really doesn't matter... men will be men and men will always "scan" their general surroundings for an attractive female. Just so happens that at 35,000 feet for a 6+ hour flight we will most likely be focused on whether or not the girl serving drinks is cute.

Not to be insensitive, but if the plane is already in the air having issues, I think I would have bigger problems to deal with (such as trying to frantically call my family) than checking out the flight attendant. As long as they know how to give the safety presentation that tells me I'm pretty much SOL anyway in the event of a crash, I couldn't care less. Whether the stewardess "knows what she is doing" makes no difference if we crash on land and I die in a ball of fire or if we crash in the water and I can die slowly of drowning because I don't know how to swim.

On the other 100% of flights I've been on where there are no issues - and air travel still remains the safest mode of transportation, as Superman loves to remind us - of course I would rather be attended to by some 19-25 year old Nammer chick with blonde streaks in a tight pencil skirt with a polite attitude than some bitter and wrinkly 45-year-old lady who pretty much acts like she hates her job.

Say what you want to about political correctness, but as a straight male I'm not going to sit here and lie about my primal instincts for the sake of "being P.C."

I'm sorry if your dick gets so little attention on the ground you feel the need for titillation when it's strapped into a flying metal cylinder at 35,000 feet. I don't need your fatalistic bullshit either so please stay off any planes I find myself on.
