| Right | May 24, 2020

Dear readers,

Next in our continuing shout-outs to workers that are being negatively affected by the total mess that is 2020 (we’ve covered grocery store workers, postal workers, healthcare workers, truck drivers , teachers , police, emergency services and waitstaff already!), are the airline staff! We know it’s annoying for those who have had their vacations canceled, but spare a thought to the staff whose jobs are on the line.

As the next 23 stories from our archives show, they have to deal with crappy situations even when things are running normally! We hope you enjoy this collection, and that we all get to take trips again soon!
