Woman slams flight crew photoshoot while on delayed plane

This photo-loving flight crew could be grounded for good.

Airport staff were arrested during a photo op on the tarmac as furious passengers sat on a plane delayed for more than three hours.

The runway incident happened at an unidentified airport on Tuesday, with the elated staff members being photographed by TikTok user @sugywitdahoodie.

The TikToker sat on the delayed Air Canada plane and managed to film the photoshoot through the window.

“Everyone on our flight is wondering why we’re over 3 hours late: flight attendants are literally doing a photoshoot outside, ON THE PLANE,” the enraged passenger captioned her clip, which has been viewed over 269,700 times.

Footage showed one of the flight attendants posing against the plane’s engine as a host of baggage handlers took photos.

The airline worker seemed to be relishing his moment on camera, striking a series of poses as he sat against the engine turbine.

Meanwhile, other flight attendants were seen taking selfies on the tarmac as the plane remained on the ground.

The TikTok video has viewers divided, with many sharing their own horror stories of flight delays.

“My Air Canada flight was delayed for 2 hours because the crew left their hotel late and were stuck in traffic,” one said.

Another said it looked like employees were “quietly quitting” – a new phrase referring to workers doing the bare minimum in jobs they don’t enjoy.

However, the airline crew were defended by dozens of other commentators who claimed they were not held up by the photo op.

“To be honest, they’re probably waiting and trying to pass the time, just like you,” one supporter said.

The video even caught the attention of a flight attendant, who wrote, “I’m FA and when passengers are waiting, we’re waiting too. Sometimes we wait longer, especially when the service starts 1h30-2h before boarding.
