Turns out those flight attendants who greet you while you board a plane aren’t just being friendly, they are sizing up the passengers and looking for people who can help in cases of emergency.
Here I thought they were trying to be cordial and nice but instead they're really looking out for the best of the best to help in case SHTF!!!
According to a flight attendant on TikTok, ”When you’re walking on the airplane and you see our happy, smiley face, we’re actually looking you up and down and we are trying to find our ABS and what that is called is our Able-Bodied People, or person. So this is people who are going to help us in an emergency. So in case of emergency, like a medical emergency, or we are going to land the plane, or there’s a security breach, we know who’s on our plane and who can help us.”
The flight attendant also said they are looking for "one more thing. We’re looking for human trafficking. It happens a lot in the industry and our passengers’ safety is our number one priority, so we’re just looking for things that look off."
