This photo-loving crew member could be banned forever.
An airport staff member who was taking photos of the tarmac was arrested after an angry passenger sat on a plane that was more than three hours late.
The runway incident occurred at an unidentified airport on Tuesday and was snapped on camera by TikTok user @sugywitdahoodie with happy staff.
TikToker was able to board a delayed Air Canada flight and snap a photo through the window.
“Everyone on our flight wonders why we’re over three hours late. Flight attendants are literally taking pictures outside the plane,” an outraged passenger said, viewed over 269,700 times. I added a caption to the clip that was played.
Footage showed one of the flight attendants posing against the aircraft’s engine, while a group of baggage handlers took pictures.
The airline employee appeared to be enjoying his moment in front of the camera, leaning against the turbine of the engine and striking a series of poses.
Meanwhile, other flight attendants were seen taking selfies on the tarmac as the aircraft continued to land.
The TikTok video divided viewers, with many sharing their own horror stories about flight delays.
“Air Canada’s flight was delayed two hours because the crew left the hotel late and got stuck in traffic,” one claimed.
Another employee said the employee appeared to be “quietly quitting.” It’s a new phrase that refers to employees doing the bare minimum in a job they don’t enjoy.
However, the airline crew was defended by dozens of other commentators who claimed they weren’t delayed by the photography.
“To be fair, they’re probably just as waiting and trying to pass the time as you are,” said one supporter.
The video caught the attention of a flight attendant who wrote: Wait times can be lengthy especially if duty starts 1.5 hours to 2 hours before her on board. ”
Thousands of battles have been postponed in North America this summer, causing chaos at airports across the country.
