Flight Attendant Life: Emirates Executive Cabin Crew member Helga Sigurdsson reveals some of the hair raising situations she has had to deal with as an air hostess: "I've only had to restrain a passenger once. He tried to open a flight door, so I tripped him up, sat on him and shouted for help until one of my colleagues arrived!" What happened next? "I had to tie him up for the rest of the flight, of course, but he was harmless really. It was his meds, combined with the alcohol."
