ONE flight attendant is opening up about the passengers who make the job difficult by failing to comply with simple airline regulations.

"Being a flight attendant was my goal, and all the things I loved about it were still there — I got to travel, take care of people, and have a flexible schedule," they told Insider.
And now, with the end of the federal mask mandate, the flight attendant is hoping their interactions with passengers continue to improve.
The flight attendant said the job can get lonely, and passenger interactions can make a big difference.
