    This is a very common picture taken by flight crew. I once took a picture of the grounds crew in a WN engine and sent it to them for inclusion in their magazine (interestingly entitled Spirit magazine), but they declined to do so, evidently missing the humor in the photo.
    It does sound like the passenger who took the photo and sent it to the news station is a jerk!

    I think the problem was that she did it during pre-check/boarding. That isn't considered an appropriate time for playing around.

    "We all do that" is a stupid excuse.

    Now if she had been being duct-taped to the engine.

    And yes, I know that "Speed Tape" is specifically designed for such repairs on aircraft.

    And you aren't by any chance affiliated with the site that you nicely "camouflaged" with bitly?

    Given that it's nothing to do with the topic at hand, I have reported it as spam.
