I'd have to agree as a flight attendant though we may be portrayed as "sky waitresses" we truly are the eyes and ears of the cabin and very many times a year we are faced with such situations- usually the smell of smoke without visual confirmation and usually to be honest it has to do with coffemakers or the air conditioning system. But you can't take any chances!
