Crying flight attendant's mix-up freaks out plane passengers7/10/2012
Hot tip for flight attendants who want to keep passengers calm: Don't tell them to prepare for an emergency landing while you're in tears. On a recent flight from Sweden to Spain, an air hostess's teary announcement after smoke issued from the cockpit area caused widespread panic, with one passenger saying: "People sat and screamed out that they didn't want to die." It turns out the smoke was from a broken television that wouldn't cause serious problems, but no one shared this information with the passengers, even after they landed. According to the passenger, after the plane safely reached its destination, the cabin crew just "sat on a bench and cried."
