Flight attendant in overhead bin startles Southwest Airlines passenger, video shows

A woman got quite a surprise Monday as she boarded a Southwest Airlines flight.

Video shows a passenger appear startled when she turned her head and saw a flight attendant in the bin.

The flight was taking off from Nashville International Airport. But this isn’t the first time a Southwest attendant maneuvered into an overhead bin.

Another climbed in and posed for a picture on her first day on the job, Dallas News reported in February.

And apparently this isn’t too off-brand for a Southwest flight.

The airline company’s attendants are known for “cracking jokes, singing and doing whatever it takes to get passengers to pay attention” to safety instructions, Skift reported in 2014.
