My experience wouldn’t really be considered a “Flight from Hell” — but it was an irritant. I was flying first class from Denver to Omaha and was carrying on my bag. I walked onto the plane and noticed a male flight attendant. I am a 60 year old female and I asked him if he could help me put my bag up. His response was,”No way, I have four herniated discs” (or something to that effect). He then walked away.
I struggled to put my bag up. One male passenger sat there and watched me, commenting, “I tell my wife if she packs it, she carries it.” HAHAHAH. I really had a hard time getting the bag up.
Finally a nice gentleman came to my rescue and put my bag up. I’m just wondering, was this an unreasonable request on my part?? (I usually check my bag, but was under a time crunch and decided to try to carry it on.) Was I asking too much of the flight attendant??
