The first piece of advice she gave was to try and keep the hotel room door ajar just in case there is an intruder and you need a quick getaway.
“First I put my bag in the door to prop it open because I want to make sure I can leave quickly if the room is unsafe," Lea said.
After this, travelling a thorough inspection of the room is done.
“Then I check every area to make sure that there is no one hiding in my room - and believe me it happens.” the flight attendant added
.Next, Lea then poked the curtains with a clothes hanger and explained why she used this object.
“A senior flight attendant once told me to always use a hanger when checking behind the curtains because if they grab something, it won’t be me,” she said.
