While the behavior of some air stewardesses of Kunming Airlines packed into the overhead bin was criticized online in China,

a craze has emerged that involves stewards and stewardesses clambering into the overhead bins and photographs of them crammed inside being uploaded to Instagram with a hashtag of #overheadbin.

While some have posed for an individual shot, others have gathered their work colleagues to join them for the memorable picture.

But they all have one thing in common - everyone featured has a beaming smile.

One air hostess revealed that the act of squeezing into the luggage storage bin is a rite of passage for a flight attendant.

Here is a choice selection of cabin crew getting in over their heads.


This picture was posted on Instagram with the caption 'Throwback to April 2012, when I was training to become a @southwestair flight attendant!'
