A video of a Southwest airline passenger making over-the-top demands of a flight attendant has gone viral, sparking concern over the current treatment of flight attendants.

The TikTok from @jaynithof23 shows the passenger loudly making demands, such as stowing her carry-on luggage for her and buckling her in (for real), and has viewers not only applauding the flight attendant for keeping her composure and handling the situation well but also commenting on the poor treatment of flight attendants in general.

In the video, which has been viewed more than 3.4 million times now, the passenger can be seen in her seat (note, there are crutches nearby) telling a flight attendant that she needs her son to be seated near her. She added that her husband can sit alone.

She then commanded the flight attendant to "throw that whatever" (her carry-on bag) and buckle her in.

The flight attendant asserted:

“You’re making so many demands of me."
“We’re not gonna have this chaos in the air.”

The passenger responded:

"Just go take off."

She then added:

“I’m hearing impaired so sorry if I sound chaotic.”

After the passenger complained about someone "using God's name in vain," she told the flight attendant she'll just "be quiet."

The flight attendant then told the passenger:

“I’m here to help, but I’m not gonna sit here and be berated."

This is so sad. Kudos to the flight attendants that kept their composure throughout the flight. #anotherkarensighting #southwest

The creator wrote in the caption:

"This is so sad."
"Kudos to the flight attendants that kept their composure throughout the flight."

Viewers of the TikTok agreed flight attendants do not get the respect or the credit they deserve.





Flight attendants in the comments revealed the events that unfolded in the video are their everyday realities.




The flight attendant did handle this situation exceptionally, but there is no reason she should have been in that position in the first place.

Human decency should not be so difficult. Do better, people.
