A FLIGHT ATTENDANT has gone viral after revealing she stepped in to breastfeed a passenger's crying baby mid-flight. "Passengers started looking and staring at the tiny, fragile crying infant", Organo wrote.
There you are, enclosed in this metal tube flying through the air with a few hundred exhausted people trying to fall asleep to The Illusionist, and your baby is screaming louder than the airplane engine itself.
