Flight Attendants Body Cams on Alaska Airlines?
I was on a Friday night flight from Seattle to Las Vegas recently. Out of the hundreds of flights each week, I would guess this flight has the highest probability of having disruptive passengers (Friday night + alcohol + Vegas).
One of the flight attendants had a small device attached to her shirt. It was approximately 2″x2″ square with a pattern in Alaska Airlines colors on the front. There was a small green flashing light and what looked like a camera lens. There was also a dial or button on the right size. It looked similar to what I have mocked up below:
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to snap a photo of the device or ask the flight attendant. It is possible it was some sort of personal device (my thought was maybe some sort of insulin pump?), so I didn’t want to get too nosey.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see flight attendants start wearing body cameras with the bad behavior that has been rising since the pandemic.
I am working on getting a response from Alaska Airlines to see if this is a new policy or program that they are piloting at this time.
