Cabin crew dance and pose for selfies on Boeing 777 in ‘life-threatening’ stunt

A Boeing 777's cabin crew performed a "life-threatening" stunt as they danced and posed for selfies on the wing of the plane.

Footage of the Swiss International Air Lines staff has since circled, showing members of the crew dancing around on the wing as they wait for take-off.

The now viral video showed a female flight attendant apparently dancing around on the exterior of the plane before she was joined by a male colleague, believed to be a senior cabin chief.

But their fun and games on the wing of the plane, which saw the cabin chief strike a bodybuilding pose and the flight attendant dance around, was labelled "life-threatening".

Michael Pelzer, a spokesperson for Swiss International Air Lines, has made it clear the "behaviour" seen in the viral video does not correspond with safety requirements.

He said: "What looks like fun in the video is life-threatening. The wings of the Boeing 777 are about five meters (16.4 feet) high. A fall from that height onto the hard surface can be devastating.

"This behaviour will not be tolerated. The behaviour of the employees in the video neither corresponds to our security requirements nor does it reflect the high level of professionalism of our employees.

"In this case, individual crew members failed to act as role models. We cannot approve of this."

No passengers were on board the plane at the time of the viral video recording, which has outraged the chief of cabin crew.

An unnamed chief of cabin crew member said: "I thought, 'What the f***? Is that real?' In addition to the fact that it is of course extremely dangerous, it is simply unprofessional."

Another head cabin crew colleague echoed the shock, adding: "They are insane! I'm ashamed of my crew, we have no business on the wings.

"If that had happened to me on the ground in Zurich, I would have sent these people straight home."

Even Head of Cabin Crew and Vice President of Swiss International Air Lines said he was "angry and disappointed" by their actions, worrying passengers may "no longer trust" the crew.

He added: "The case will be dealt internally as a disciplinary matter. But to counteract the first rumours, we won't just fire someone."
