A flight attendant has exposed the big mistake passengers make when boarding with their carry-on luggage.
TheCompanion, who works for Delta but remained unnamed, said can’t see the restrictions on board.
They said if you need to use the expander on your suitcase it won’t go in the overhead compartment.
They told Thrillist: “If you need to use the expander on your suitcase, don’t bring it as carry-on luggage.
“It won’t fit no matter how hard you hit it, and no we won’t try to make it fit for you.
“I guarantee you won’t be paying the medical bill if we get hurt.”
The crew is often not allowed to help passengers when it comes to putting their bags in the lockers.
This is because they are at risk of being injured and unable to fly.
Flight attendant Jamila Hardwick told Inside: “We don’t get paid until the boarding door is closed.
“If we injure ourselves while putting this bag in the overhead compartment, we can’t write that off as an accident at work.”
Another agreed with Reddit, who said: “We were told not to stow luggage for passengers as the company would not be responsible should we be injured doing so.
