Flight attendant: "If you get up from your seat before the plane stops, you're an idiot" - voila! tourism

Highlights: A flight attendant says she is amazed time and time again by the fact that people really think that if they get up from their seats to get out before everyone else, they will really gain something. "The last thing you want to do after a long flight is stay in your seat, especially for tall passengers who don't have much legroom," she says. "It's just like removing your seat belt in a car after getting off a highway into a city road. Definitely a dangerous matter," she adds.

"If you're the kind of person who gets up from your seat before the plane stops and the doors open, you're an idiot." So declares a flight attendant with more than ten years of experience. "It amazes me time and time again that people think about 'stealing' a few steps ahead of everyone else by getting up from their seat after landing."

The Sun notes that while the flight attendant prefers to remain anonymous, she is definitely determined to explain to the world why you should just keep sitting, instead of getting up and creating mayhem and other problems.

"It's like taking off your seat belt when you get off a highway."

"I understand the need," she explains. "The last thing you want to do after a long flight is stay in your seat, especially for tall passengers who don't have much legroom. But getting up immediately after landing can be very dangerous, especially if the plane is still moving and has not yet reached the terminal. It's just like removing your seat belt in a car after getting off a highway into a city road. Definitely a dangerous matter."

More injuries occur to passengers when the plane is on the ground than when it is in the air, she said. And most of these injuries happen because those passengers are not in their seat, buckled up.

And for those who think such a rise will make them exit the plane faster, the flight attendant certainly cools the enthusiasm. "You won't get anywhere sooner. It's best to sit in your seat until the plane arrives at the terminal, and only then start thinking about how you collect your bags and other belongings and prepare for departure. And even then, you have to leave calmly, go line by line, and exit the plane one by one. It's an orderly and efficient process, which also prevents people from pushing each other."

Everyone meets on the luggage conveyor belt

The anonymous flight attendant admits that there are indeed slower passengers, or those who struggle for long periods to get their luggage off the overhead storage compartments. "And it's perfectly fine to bypass them if it's possible and doesn't cause a problem. But if a queue forms behind them, just hold back. What's the point of stressing? After all, we are all on this issue together, and we will all meet together at passport control stations and wait there in the same lines. So what's the point? And in general, if you think about the most efficient way for everyone to get out of the plane, it will work for you too."

She adds that for those who still want to exit the plane as quickly as possible, it is recommended that they choose a seat at the front of the plane, on the left side - the side from which to exit the plane. On smaller aircraft, there are exits from the rear as well, and we must prepare for this. "You'll have to do a little research before the flight to know which model of plane you'll be flying in, and you'll be able to get out among the first. But anyway, it's so insignificant - all you'll gain is a few seconds and look like idiots rushing out before everyone else. After all, we will meet you in the queue at passport control and next to the luggage conveyor belt in the terminal."
