On a flight from Sydney to Guangzhou I noticed an attendant on a China Southern airline wear a body cam on two of his 'rounds'. Sadly, I wasn't able to get a photo of the guy. One was about 40 minutes after the plane took off and the other was about 7 hours into the flight (9 hours+ of flight). There were no unusual incidents on the flight. It couldn't be for counting purposes as we were 'tally clicked' while boarding the plane and once again by another attendant walking inside counting the number of passengers.
I am trying to understand the following:
- Why would a flight attendant need to wear a body cam on a flight?
- Is an airline not bound to inform me that I will be recorded for whatever purposes ?
