we had a gate agent that was punched in the head so bad, so severely that she had to go to the hospital 

NAT

BLEEDING FLIGHT ATTENDANT 

SOT:

MATTHEW COOK:

00:15:48;06              

 it’s definitely out of control.

TRACK:

MATTHEW COOK –  

AND MITRA AMIRZADEH  (MEET-RA  AH-MEER-ZA-DAY)

ARE FLIGHT ATTENDANTS FOR MAJOR AIRLINES.

MATTHEW COOK:

00:13:28;03

I have apprehensions going to work — every day. I have a lot of anxiety

TRACK:

SO DOES *THIS* FLIGHT ATTENDANT.

SHE FEARS LOSING HER JOB – 

AND ASKED US TO CONCEAL HER IDENTITY.

FLIGHT ATTENDANT:

13:29:24;24       people are pushing the envelope a little bit more, and making it a more volatile situation. //13:31:37;02  35,000 feet is not the place that you want anything to go down.

SOT

ANDREA DAY:

13:32:15;10             

Is it making you reconsider your job right now?

SOT

FLIGHT ATTENDANT:

13:32:20;09              
yeah. For sure.

SOT

MATTHEW COOK:

00:24:00;24              

 I’ve had the f-bomb dropped on me– “This is ridiculous,” 

SOT:

MATTHEW COOK:

00:24:34;08           

side-eye, lip, and a little temper tantrum in their seat. 

MATTHEW COOK 
00:14:21;02     
I don’t know if they’re gonna get violent. And I don’t wanna have to deal with that kind of situation.

TRACK:

LIKE THIS ONE –

WHEN A WOMAN ON BOARD HAD TO BE TACKLED TO GROUND

NAT

GOOD FIGHT NAT

SOT:

MATTHEW COOK:

00:14:52;11            

Are they gonna throw punches? Is it just gonna be verbal?]

SOT 

FLIGHT ATTENDANT:

13:53:47;01              
How does it get to that point? I don’t know. I– I’m alarmed. 

SOT:

MITRA AMIRZADEH:

00:05:42;24             

I think people are using the mask mandate as an excuse for poor behavior. A rule is a rule.



SOT:

MITRA AMIRZADEH:
00:03:23;24              
I absolutely think that our jobs are getting harder 

TRACK: 15

FLIGHT ATTENDANTS –

NOW  WATCHING YOUR EVERY MOVE. 

FLIGHT ATTENDANT: 

13:32:45;24             

every passenger that I come in contact with // I’m definitely gonna size you up on how big of a risk you are

SOT:

MATTHEW COOK:

00:30:13;03              

especially if they’re not wearing their mask properly, as soon as they get on.

SOT

FLIGHT ATTENDANT

13:54:40;05           

we are all watching, and we all have a lotta power to say if you can or cannot go.

ANDREA DAY:
13:47:13;21              
What do you think should happen to someone who assaults a flight attendant?

FLIGHT ATTENDANT:
13:47:17;24              
You’re a no fly list. I would hope forever. 

MITRA
00:15:16;24   

if it were up to me, not only would they go to jail, they’d pay a fine. And they wouldn’t be allowed to fly any air carrier, they’d be riding the Amtrak 

##PKG END##

ADAY LIVE TAG:

SHEP – THIS HAS GOTTEN SO OUT OF CONTROL – SOME FLIGHT ATTENDANTS SAY THEY’RE “THIS CLOSE” TO WALKING AWAY FROM A JOB THEY LOVE – AND WHAT COULD MAKE IT EVEN WORSE?   MEETRA SAYS HER AIRLINE WILL BEGIN SERVING “ALCOHOL” AGAIN ON BOARD SOON – AND SHE’S WORRIED THAT WILL JUST ELEVATE THE SITUATION.  SHEP?
