Flight attendant shares why they really switch the seat belt sign on – it's not turbulence


She explained: “Although the aircraft is at a standstill and passengers believe that it is safe to get up and start getting their bags, the aircraft could still move unexpectedly, which could result in passengers injuring themselves.”

Former Flight Attendant Annie Strand wrote on online forum Quora that a flashing sign during takeoff or landing is a little sinister.

It means that the plane is around 30 seconds from hitting the ground, according to the insider.

The situation is so “severe” that the pilot does not have time to warn the crew that he or she is doing a safety landing.
