Non Rev Travelers and Irate Customers
Lately, airlines have been in the news almost weekly for onboard issues involving airline policies, irate customers, and passengers with cameras. Which, then results in uploaded videos of part of the situation & the ensuing drama associated with it.
As a reminder to ALL Air North team members - it is important that when you fly, you remove ALL airline identification from yourself, and that you do your best to "blend in". This also goes for your eligibles. This is for your comfort, as lately many passengers have been targeting anger at airline staff. Walking down the aisle with lanyards swinging from your neck makes you a moving target.
And if you do experience or witness any hostilities or issues between airline staff and customers, please use tact and provide assistance ONLY if requested. You may identify yourself to a crew member once the situation has calmed down or resolved itself, but otherwise do not get between a customer and airline staff while non-reving.
