Galley Gossip: Flight attendants force Lady Gaga to change clothes in flight
Am I surprised by any of this? Not at all. Crazy Gaga has been quoted saying she would rather die than have her fans not see her in a pair of high heels. Well the woman almost got her wish. Obviously Miss G does not realize just how serious DVT is, especially when wearing uncomfortable duct tape with snug platform shoes on a long haul flight!
I'll admit it, I'm a pretty big fan of the recording artist, so I'm quite familiar with her theatrical taste in fashion. And the thought of Lady G actually donning a pair of synthetic, airline, knee-socks is just not right. But research has shown that wearing flight socks can reduce the risk of developing DVT by 90%. Don't gag, Gaga. If anyone can make an ugly pair of compression socks look sexy at 30,000 feet it's you!
Speaking of strange outfits in flight, flight attendants should not wear pink. EVER. Nor should they wear little weird hats on the side of their heads. At least not to work. Although something tells me Lady Gaga might disagree.
Now flight attendants are on board primarily for the safety of passengers. This includes handling what could possibly turn into a serious health concern in flight. I hope Lady Gaga realizes this and doesn't resent the cabin crew for looking after her. Certainly she must know that flight attendants are trained to deal with these kinds of situations, that we're professionals who take pride in our job, and that we'll do whatever we have to do for the comfort and safety of everyone on board. It's just...who would have thought this would one day come to include removing duct tape and designer shoes from a celebrity passenger!
