She posted on her Facebook Fan Page after her flight and vented about her experience on the plane. Amy wondered what flight attendants do anymore?
Amy Roloff = "Wow, got to airport record time. 30 min. Getting ready to board ... Second time this happened - flight attendants can not help with putting luggage in overhead? 'law'. Really? So I can't do what others get to do? Really?"
Amy Roloff = "So what do flight attendants do on an airplane? There's no food, I bring my own water and if the plane gies down well we are all in trouble. So what do the do anymore?
Cause of height I can't lift and put in overhead and they can't help? Hmmm my next mission perhaps? Along with kids!"
Amy Roloff = "The problem is it's law. Anyone needing help they are not required or need to assist. So unless a passenger can help I'm required to ck a carry on. Crazy. Doesn't seem right to me."
This is unrelated to Amy's specific case, but here is an article that interviews a flight attendant from their perspective re: the baggage issue (May 2010).
