An American Airlines Pilot Is Going Viral After Lecturing Passengers


An American Airlines pilot is going viral after lecturing passengers. After being shared on Instagram a week ago, a video of an American Airlines pilot insulting his passengers has now gone viral, drawing attention from people all around the world.

In a video that was uploaded by the comedian Anna Leah Maltezos, you can hear the pilot stating over the aircraft's intercom system:

Be nice to each other, be respectful to each other. I shouldn't have to say that.- American Airlines pilot

Over 4.4 million people have seen the Instagram Reel in just the past six days.

The captain kept repeating to the passengers that they needed to be courteous to the flight attendants as they proceeded to board the aircraft.

You will listen to what they have to say because they represent my will in the cockpit or in the cabin. And my will is what matters.- American Airlines pilot

He said that he reminded "selfish and rude" customers of the same things on "every single flight."

Stow your stuff. Get it out of everybody else's way. Put your junk where it belongs.- American Airlines pilot

Then he turned his attention to people who used their phones at maximum volume but did not have earbuds in their ears.

The social experiment on listening to videos on speaker mode and talking on a cellphone on speaker mode? That is over. Over and done in this country. Nobody wants to hear your video. I know you think it's super sweet, it probably is, but it's your business, right? So keep it to yourself.- American Airlines pilot

As a parting message, he also mentioned that everyone sitting in the center seat should be able to reach both of the armrests. He responded, "That is my gift to you," and I took it as a compliment. The comments that users left on the video were, for the most part, complimentary toward his remarks.

If you're offended by this speech, congrats, you're the problem.- Instagram user

The airline sector has been plagued by an increase in the number of events involving disruptive passengers ever since it began to recover from the COVID-19 outbreak. There have been at least 983 incidents reported in the United States so far in 2018, as indicated by the statistics given by the Federal Aviation Administration.

This information is as of the beginning of the year. According to research carried out by the FAA, the number of incidents of "air rage" that have occurred so far this year are at least 49 percentage points more than the levels that prevailed before the COVID. The number of reports of disruptive passengers in the United Kingdom in 2022 more than tripled from 2019 to reach 1,028 cases, as reported by Sky News.

Final Words

Customers have been known to open the doors of planes, activate emergency slides at airports, punch crew members, threaten to detonate explosives, and reroute flights this year all because they were unhappy with the meals that were provided to them.Requests for remarks sent to American Airlines and Maltezos outside of regular business hours did not receive an immediate response from either firm. Neither one of these companies had regular business hours.
