Flight attendant closes overhead bins upside down with high heels

Sat Aug 29, 2020 4:12 am

Here is something you don’t see everyday. “A welcome relief from the strain of working as a flight attendant during a pandemic.”

This flight attendant shows off her remarkable acrobatic skills to close the overhead bins with her feet - while wearing high heels.

Fair use excerpt:

“Lindsey O'Brien, 35, gripped onto the armrests before flipping upside down and using her feet to close four luggage containers above. She twirled back down to the aisle and lifted her arms in triumph as her fellow crew members cheered her on. The video was filmed in June aboard an aircraft which had been grounded in her home city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, due to Covid-19.”

I feel like the choice of a skirt will increase the number of YouTube views

By using dirty shoes to close overhead bins, in the middle of a pandemic? Lol. Is this the new cleaning protocol at airlines now?

This has been an occurrence before the pandemic, anything to pass the time on a turnaround. I remember seeing something like that in July last year on a cabin crew page on Instagram and next thing I know every other day people were attempting it.
I love the feel of a Go Around in the morning

Sorry, while not appetizing, people’s hands are just as dirty with everything they’ve touched, including touching your shoes to put them on.

This is not a safety risk in the least and should not be lumped in with ‘in times of this pandemic’. So silly to equate the two.
Whatever

With enough practice I am sure she could improve on this Further, by jumping backwards on each seat rows armrest and closing every overhead bin, front to back. Maybe next year. The challenge is there.

Those bins can be quite high and heavy when fully loaded; to a point that China Eastern apparently issued standard supporting rods to the FAs to close 777's bins.
