Turbulence is a common occurrence for every flight. It’s quite rare when you have a flight that is smooth from takeoff all the way through to landing. Pilots and flight attendants have to factor in turbulence as part of their duties, particularly when it comes to performing services in the cabin. It requires coordination with the flight crew and proactive actions by flight attendants serving and the galley-assigned crewmember to minimize the effect of turbulence should they hear the announcement from the flight crew, “flight attendants please return to your seats.” Occasionally, unpredicted severe turbulence strikes, and when it does, anything unsecured gets tossed in the air. This is why it’s important to only keep out what’s necessary for service at that point in time. Keep the galley supplies and carts secure when not in use.
