This photo-loving flight crew could be permanently grounded.
Airport staff has been busted conducting a tarmac photo shoot as furious passengers sat on board a plane delayed for more than three hours.
The runway incident took place Tuesday at an unidentified airport, with the snap-happy staffers caught on camera by TikTok user @sugywitdahoodie.
The TikToker was sitting on board the delayed Air Canada plane and managed to film the photo shoot through the window.
“Everyone on our flight wondering why we’re 3+ hours delayed: The flight attendants are having a literal photoshoot outside, ON THE PLANE,” the enraged passenger captioned her clip, which has been viewed more than 269,700 times.
Footage showed one of the flight attendants posing against the aircraft’s engine as a bevy of baggage handlers snapped photos.
The airline worker appeared to be relishing his moment in front of the camera, striking a series of poses as he sat up against the engine’s turbine.
Meanwhile, other flight attendants were seen snapping selfies on the tarmac as the aircraft continued to sit grounded.
The TikTok video divided viewers, with many sharing their own horror stories about flight delays.
“My Air Canada flight was delayed for 2 hours because the crew left their hotel late and were stuck in traffic,” one claimed.
Another said it looked like the employees were “quiet 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 commenters who claimed they weren’t delayed by the photo shoot.
“To be fair they’re probably waiting and trying to pass the time just like you,” one supporter stated.
The video even attracted the attention of a flight attendant, who wrote: “I’m a FA and when passengers wait we wait too. Sometimes we wait longer especially when duty starts 1.5hrs-2hrs before boarding.”
Thousands of fights have been delayed across North America this summer, causing chaos at airports across the country.
This past Saturday alone more than 3,600 flights were delayed within, into or out of the US, according to the cancellation tracker FlightAware. An additional 145 flights were canceled altogether.
