Pilot Goes Viral for Telling Passengers Not to Be Selfish and Rude

An American Airlines pilot has gone viral after making an important announcement about travel etiquette.

In a video shared by Anna Leah Maltezos that has racked up over 4.6 million views, the unnamed captain can be heard going through everything from how to listen to music and properly speak to flight attendants to the rights of the person in the middle seat,

The captain's stern yet humorous speech struck a chord with many on social media amid a serious uptick in passengers misbehaving on planes in recent years.

He first reminded passengers how he felt they should treat the cabin crew.

“Remember, the flight attendants are here for your safety," the pilot announced at the start of the preflight speech. "After that, they’re here to make your flight more enjoyable. They’re going to take care of you guys but you will listen to what they have to say because they represent my will in the cabin, and my will is what matters."

Here is the video that's gone crazy viral. Share your thoughts and comments.
