With social distancing in effect, Yoo’s airline has altered protocols to protect flight attendants and the passengers they care for. While Yoo is grateful for the new safety guidelines, she misses the old camaraderie. “The near-empty flights are heartbreaking to me,” Yoo said. “People used to socialize with each other and now everyone just keeps to themselves.”
“I actually miss pouring passengers a Diet Coke with ice!” she added.
Unable to chat with fellow crew members or serve guests, Yoo was delighted when she recently got to spend some quality time with a sweet dog sitting in her very own seat.
