A viral video of a Southwest Airlines flight attendant offers commentary on luxury travel bags and the proper way to stow your luggage.
These days it’s rare to see travelers having a good time and rarer still to see the oft-overworked and underpaid travel industry staff also having a hoot. After several years of wacky pandemic pandemonium travel when we find a funny story we kind of go bonkers for it.
In a now-viral TikTok video, a Southwest Airlines flight attendant is clearly loving his job. In a video posted by /divine_sorrow916 the man lays it on thick when encouraging passengers to stow their smaller luggage under the seatback in front of them to make room in the overhead bins.
As he describes the rigorous testing they’ve performed to ensure that Gucci and Prada and all the other luxury bags fit easily under the seatback he then deadpans the punch line: “If they were real you wouldn’t be flying Southwest would you?”
We are dying.
@divine_sorrow916 If you ever get this guy on your flight show him some love 👏🏾👏🏾 by far one of the best flight attendant / flight crew I’ve ever met wn241 . He deserves a raise @Southwest Airlines. #fyp #southwestairlines #denvertoraleigh #weekendvibes ♬ original sound – Itsjustmedonna
We love this and we love Southwest Airlines which is known for encouraging and allowing its team members to have a little more fun than their competitors. Good for them and good for this flight attendant.
