Literally everytime i took tissue paper, cleaned and flushed it, and after his popping in morning, I quickly turn on the exhaust fan..... Too smelly, really this thing ruined my trip

    What's an air pocket and why does it cause the aircraft to suddenly drop like that? I fly a lot but just curious.

    I am a flight attendant for a Middle East airline. I had a flight where more than 3 passengers threw up. One left the bag with vomit on the seat (not the one provided by our airline btw) and one went straight to business class and vomited on passengers seating there....

    I can totally relate with the Vegas puke story because it happened to me. We had just taken off and I got really nauseous ( was drinking all night with a few shots before the flight) - I asked the flight attendant if I could go to the bathroom but she said I had to wait for the seatbelt sign to go off. I think she realized what was going on from the beads of sweat on my face, raced to the galley and walked back with a garbage bag. I did not make two steps after I stood up but she had the garbage bag right in front of me. I managed to barf in the bag - so embarrassing.
    That little barf bag in the seat pocket would not have handled all the breakfast burritos I had.

    I remember when I was eight years old, I got to fly for the very first time in my life. I was promised that if I did really good in school that year I would get to fly over to see my uncle who had moved away earlier that year, in the summer for my birthday. My grandma flew with me but, the first place we went to was Chicago where my grandma and I met up with my uncle and spent my birthday. Now the flight to Chicago was pretty funny and I’m so glad I was old enough to be able to remember it. Now a flight from EP to Chicago is pretty long. I was eight at the time and my bladder was smaller (you think you know where I’m headed with this but you don’t).
    Now I learned on the flight you weren’t allowed to use the bathroom 30 mins before landing and after takeoff. I was fine until about fifteen minutes into the descent. I told my grandma I had to pee REALLY bad and that I wasn’t sure I’d be able to hold it. My grandma freaks out a little and I started crying because I was eight and thought peeing on myself was gross and I wanted to not do that because I was a “big girl”. And then the heroic flight attendant came in she was able to get me to the bathroom without an accident I just had to stay in there for the rest of the flight which was like ten minutes at this point. So we land, pretty much everyone is off the plane, the flight attendant takes me back to where my grandma is sitting and she’s apologizing because she felt bad about me crying and I wasn’t mad at her or anything. Her and my grandma got to talking and my grandma told her my birthday was coming up. The flight attendant tells us hold on a minute and leaves to the pilots cabin. She comes back out and we meet the captain of the plane and chat with him a bit. I got to go in and sit in the co-pilots seat and just as my grandma goes to take a picture the captain says hold on. He takes off his pilot hat and puts it on me and my grandma took one of my favorite pictures to this day. I also got a big warm chocolate chip cookie for my troubles. 😁😁😁

    I work for a major commercial airline too and have a similar vomit story lol but it was a woman in first class and her little yappy dog puked all over the seat while we were still boarding. Then she had the NERVE to come to us (after she had been sitting in the seat for 10-20 minutes before) to tell us there had been throw up in her seat this whole time. Us, being lazy flight attendants, had been sitting in first class and in her exact seat for a good half hour while we waited for boarding. There was clearly no vomit. She also mysteriously went to the bathroom with her dog right after. I thought it was hilarious besides the 2 hour delay it caused while maintenance had to change the seat

    I am terrified on planes. I really hate flying. My boyfriend and I travelled to Japan with our friends and it was during typhoon season. When we flew back to our home country, the pilot informed us that there would be turbulence during the first 20 mins. I was terrified especially since one time the turbulence caused my butt to be lifted off my seat for literally 2-3 inches... it might not look like a lot but it definitely feels a lot... I was holding on to my boyfriend's hand... and he had fallen asleep...

    Vomiting on a flight is the worst. I took a 12-hour flight to Italy and Felt fine most of the flight then comes dinner time. We eat and everything is fine I go to sleep and wake up at breakfast time just feeling sick. We were taking a German airline and I was just telling my husband my gosh something was wrong with the food. My utensils were the only ones open ion our row! I am literally dying and throwing up the entire time we are landing. We land in Germany and I go to about 4 different restrooms to throw up. Get on the connecting flight to Italy which is 2 hours and feel fine enough to sleep and wake up in Italy just throwing up all over again! At this point, I literally had nothing in my stomach so I am just throwing up stomach acid and just dying waiting for our friend to pick us up from the airport. He finally picks us up and takes us to his house and I literally slept for over 14 hours and felt fine the next day. But that was my first long trip and I realized I have terrible motion sickness and just cannot eat while on planes.

    The 500ft drop story happened to me too when I was a passenger. Apparently planes can hit these air pockets and then the plane drops. Ppl that didn’t have their seatbelts on hit their heads on the ceiling, ppl were praying and screaming... it was awful.

    People are so horrible. I’ve done hotel housekeeping before as a second job and people are trash. I sometimes can’t even understand how people can be so trashy and dirty. You think people care about the environment and going ‘green’? They only care if others have to behave but not themselves.
