However, some would go the extra mile if it meant helping a passenger overcome their fear of flying, just like this Lion Air flight attendant.
The internet was all hearts after a video showing the flight attendant assisting a senior citizen passenger during mealtime by feeding her went viral on social media.
Malay Mail reported that the senior citizen, who was reportedly 117-years-old, was travelling from Surabaya to Palangkaraya on the Indonesian low-cost carrier.
According to Instagram user Armaini Imay, who was on the same flight and recorded the video, the anxious elderly passenger initially refused to put on a seatbelt and wanted to get down from the airplane.
“With such loving care, the flight attendant gave her a beverage, fed her gently as though she was his own mother and managed to coax her to wear a seatbelt in the end,” he wrote on the post.
