Flight attendants have revealed many secrets over the years regarding life 30,000 feet in the air.
What many may not realise is that they aren’t just there to serve passengers, but are mainly onboard for safety and keeping passengers calm.
One flight attendant has revealed the terrifying moment they realised they were about to crash into another plane when landing.
Thankfully, they managed to avoid it at the last minute.

Whilst they managed to avoid the plane, the passengers on the flight were “screaming” after the quick ascent.
The anonymous flight attendant admitted that “the only thing that prevented me from screaming was I was pinned to the seat with such force it kept me silent.”
The pilot then made the announcement regarding what had happened and apologised for the manoeuvre after the plane crossed into their landing path without permission.
Thankfully everyone on board was fine although the flight attendant admitted having a “series of cocktails” when landing.

Popular budget airlines easyJet and Ryanair also have never had a fatal crash, flying from 1995 and 1985, respectively. Ryanair suffered a near-miss after hitting 90 starling birds mid-flight but landed with only minor injuries.
Hawaiian Airlines, Emirates and Virgin Atlantic have also avoided any fatal accidents in their history.
