Flight Attendant Entertains Cabin With Theatrical Safety Demonstration

A Southwest Airlines flight attendant garnered a chorus of laughter while giving a campy safety demonstration on a July 5 flight from Nashville, Tennessee, to Atlanta, Georgia.

This video shared to Twitter by Brittney Abernathy shows the charismatic crew member seductively slide down the side of the cabin while buckling a life vest, before sashaying down the aisle to point to the emergency exits.

Abernathy told Storyful that the flight attendant’s “energetic” performance was appreciated by those on board. “Give this man a raise,” she wrote on Twitter. Credit: Brittney Abernathy via Storyful
