That would be the last thing I would want to hear

(Reuters) - A female flight attendant who started ranting about a possible crash over the public address system of an American Airlines plane on Friday was subdued by passengers and crew as the plane returned to the gate, passengers said.
The incident at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport led the pilot to taxi back to the gate, where police and FBI agents took the unidentified flight attendant for a psychiatric evaluation, airport spokesman David Magana said.

Flight attendants are tested and screened prior to employment by any airline. Also Airline personnel are randomly drug tested.
I suspect this F/A was senior and had developed mental problems over the years. This could happen to anyone.

Nonetheless she is probably in treatment and will be reassigned or terminated. Depending.

Hopefully reassigned or allowed to retire.
