If my plane is about to crash, I want my flight attendant to be awake. I don't care if she spent all night giving knob to the pilot or if the male attendant had a rough night of gay sex.

"The hazards of fatigue appear in flight attendants’ own words in dozens of voluntary reports to the FAA.

“If there were an evacuation, I doubted my abilities,” wrote one about the impact of working 12 hours without a break.“I also felt like an endangerment to my passengers.”

Another injured a foot after she was struck by full coffee pots she forgot to secure.“This occurred because I was very tired,” the flight attendant wrote.“I did not sleep well the night prior … constantly watching the clock in anticipation of my early wake-up call.”

“None of us [was] alert enough to have been able to efficiently respond to an aircraft emergency,” said another."
