Another flight attendant fights with passengers -- this time with pillows

A crowded flight. Misbehaving passengers. A flight attendant that fights back. Sound familiar? No, it's not Steven Slater. And it's not JetBlue.

This time it's a Luftansa flight from Tel Aviv to Frankfurt. And the female flight attendant tries to pass out pillows to the passengers by tossing them to the seats. A few of the passengers decided to toss them back. A fight ensues:

Amid laughter and applause, the flight attendant finally takes cover. Lufthansa is just as happy with the fight as the passengers seem to be. Lufthansa spokeswoman Christina Semmel told AOL News, "It's an example of passengers enjoying themselves in economy class. And it shows we still offer pillows to our passengers in economy class," Semmel says.

Perhaps JetBlue should think about instituting pillow fights as a way for flight attendants to blow off a little steam.
