Re "Flight attendant fatigue is an issue," Business, June 6
Just because the plane lands safely doesn't mean there's no longer any danger posed by a fatigued flight attendant.
I commuted from Orange County to LAX for 35 years. I was often awake for 18 to 24 hours before beginning my drive home on the 405 Freeway. I was pulled over once for a suspected DUI because I couldn't stay within my lane. After one flight from Australia, I went north on the 405 instead of south, passing two exits before getting off.
Fatigue does strange things to your mind. An overtired flight attendant is a danger to people on and off the plane.
