“Almost everyone in this photo from @SouthwestAir #SWA1380 today is wearing their mask wrong.

“Put down the phone, stop with the selfies… and listen.

“Cover your nose and mouth.”

After Bobbies social media post went viral, flight attendants confessed that a worrying amount of passengers dont pay attention to instructions at the start of the flight.

One air hostess commented: “Ive done the safety demo hundreds of times at work and each time I do it only half of the passengers look up and watch.

“Please people pay attention its very important information.”

Another added: “As a former airline employee, for over 35 years, I find it devastating to see this picture of people wearing a mask the wrong way.

“I am glad you pointed out that people need to put their stupid phones down and pay attention.”
