There’s a reason the captain says you should wear your seatbelt at all times.
While all airlines would like to ensure a smooth flight, there’s always a risk of a bumpy ride caused by turbulence.
That’s why the captain always says you should wear your seatbelt while flying, even when the seatbelt sign is turned off.
Case in point: this video of passengers and flight attendants being thrown around on a flight from Kosovo to Switzerland. Be warned, it’s pretty hairy.
