Airline crew member claims overhead bin for his own luggage sparking debate

Frustrated with the lack of personal storage space on a plane, one unidentified crew member marked an overhead bin not to be used by passengers. The recent incident aboard an American Airlines flight has sparked surprise and prompted discussions about the often overlooked challenges flight attendants face.

According to Your Tango, the incident was shared by the Facebook account, A Fly Guy’s Cabin Crew Lounge, which posts comedic content for flight attendants. Though, in this recent post, he sparked more arguments than chuckles.

Frustrated with the lack of personal storage space on a plane, one unidentified crew member marked an overhead bin not to be used by passengers. The recent incident aboard an American Airlines flight has sparked surprise and prompted discussions about the often overlooked challenges flight attendants face.

“Looks like some crew member at American Airlines is tired of sharing the bins with passengers and took matters into their own hands and used a marker to write CREW on the bin of an Airbus A321,” they added.

The accompanied photo showed the capital letters “CREW” written in a thin sharpie above the overhead bin handle.

According to some, crew members often struggle to find space for their belongings.

“To be fair, crew have lost any proper space to store luggage. We respect that passengers need space as well but not having secure areas for crew luggage is unfortunate, and many of those bags go missing as passengers mistake them for their own,” one person wrote.

They have to compete with passengers, risking their personal items being taken mistakenly.
