A Delta Air Lines flight attendant allegedly told a reporter that serving drinks to first class passengers is her most important job — even more crucial than mask mandate enforcement.
BocaNewsNow.com’s editor and publisher Andrew Colton says the news outlet was aboard Delta Air Lines flight DL1678 from San Antonio to Atlanta on Monday.
“A woman stood up from row 2 and planted herself next to a man who she seemingly was quite interested in meeting,” Mr. Colton writes.
He said the woman wasn’t wearing a mask (that’s a big no-no) while flirting with the gentleman and enjoying an adult beverage. This apparently went on for more than a half-hour.
Mr. Colton says passengers “suggested to the first class flight attendant that she enforce the federal mask mandate that the crew announced repeatedly — as well as a general policy against standing near the front galley — but she refused to do so.”
Eventually, he says, a different flight attendant came up to the forward cabin and gave the woman a paper mask. And asked her repeatedly to wear it. (Mr. Colton notes that the woman wasn’t aggressive.)
“Delta did not immediately respond to a query from BocaNewsNow.com about whether the airline now considers alcohol service to be more important than mask mandate enforcement,” he writes.
I’m curious how exactly the flight attendant allegedly said serving drinks is more important than cracking down on mask offenders. I’m guessing it was a dry, sarcastic tone. Flight attendants who read the blog: what’s your take on all this? Passengers: does any of this upset you?
And is anyone else curious if she scored the guy’s phone number or other contact information? 🙂
