Flights Review

Jul 29, 2018

One of the staff was a little rude when I just needed to wash my hands. I went to the front of the plane since all of the rest of the staff was passing out drinks and food at the back of the plane. She told me that I needed to use the two at the back of the plane. I was using the back ones until this one incident of it being blocked. I spilled some stuff of my hands and needed to just wash them quickly. So I just wish the lady wasn’t so rude and understanding in the situation.
