Thai Flight Attendants Penalized For Neglecting Food Trays Until Landing


Flight attendants from Thai Airways have been issued a one-month suspension and pay cuts for not collecting food trays from customers until landing.

Bangkok Post reports that the incident took place on a flight from Singapore to Bangkok. When the flight landed in Bangkok, the unsecured trays and utensils went scattering due to the impact.

A viral video documenting the incident on TikTok has led to an investigation into the cabin crew on board.

The company also issued an apology for any inconvenience caused due to the incident in their statement.
