There is a need for you to know the secrets about air travel, as doing so can make you have a safer and happier flying experience. Flight attendants know more than a few things that can not only make you enjoy your trip but also determine the type of trip you’d have.
Here are a number of things you should know about flight attendants.
Passengers are Quite Rude
Some passengers steal, curse and are generally troublesome. Flight attendants have the responsibility of keeping order and they mostly disarm unruly passengers by introducing themselves and calming the situation.
They Don’t Have A Boyfriend In Every City
While they travel round the world, most people expect them to have more than a few boyfriends in major cities but that isn’t the case.
They Want You To Keep An Eye On Kids
If you’re travelling with a small child and you keep hearing bells and chimes, you may want to check to see if it’s your child playing with the flight attendant call bell. If you have a baby, bring diapers. This will help to reduce the burden on them.
If you’re diabetic, bring syringes. If you have high blood pressure, don’t forget your medication. That way, they don’t have to try to make a diaper out of a sanitary pad and a pillowcase or asking over the intercom if someone has a spare inhaler.
They Want You To Put Other Passengers In Consideration
Just in case you hadn’t noticed, there are other people on the airplane besides you. As such, don’t snore with wild abandon, or do any type of personal business under a blanket!
Have A Pen On Your Travels
Lots of people travel without a pen but they usually need one to fill immigration forms. While most flight attendants carry some, it won’t be enough to go round.
They Detest Been Poked Or Grabbed
No one likes to be poked, but it’s even worse on the plane because you’re sitting down and they are not, so it’s usually in a very personal area.
They are Not Lazy
The rules of a lot of airlines don’t allow their flight attendants to lift the luggage of passengers into the overhead bin for them, even though they are allowed to “assist.” Have this in mind before abusing the next air hostess you come across.
