Passenger Finds Flight Attendant in Overhead Compartment While Boarding

By 3 weeks ago

There’s going above and beyond, and there’s just…going above.

Southwest passenger Veronica Lloyd boarded her flight from Nashville to Atlanta not expecting much—so she was very surprised when she opened the overhead bin.

Instead of bags, a flight attendant curled up in the small compartment space.

“She was up there for about five minutes. More than half the flight was boarded before she got down,” Lloyd said. “It was pretty hilarious. She was greeting passengers as they walked by.”

It was only Lloyd’s second time flying with Southwest. “I guess I was unaware of the [flight attendants] wanting to have a sense of humor during flights for Southwest, but it was certainly entertaining.

Southwest released a statement regarding the incident, saying its employees “are known for demonstrating their sense of humor and unique personalities.”
