When you do these 5 things to inflight cabin crew in your next flight, you may land yourself some surprise gifts. You will be amazed at how far that goes.
They wear name tags. If you make an effort to address them, it might just make their day. After all, they could have just spent their past minutes cleaning up baby’s vomit or being yelled at by an angry passenger. And to have someone ignore your greeting even though you’ve made eye contact is just plain rude, no?
Yes, some passengers actually bother to do that. They bring a bar of chocolate to pass it to the flight attendant and we’re not saying you should bribe them, but who doesn’t like treats? When flight attendants fly as passengers they traditionally bring chocolate and treats for members of the crew. Surely they will be elated to receive that treatment from someone who’s not in the same job.
Well-dressed or attractive passengers get noticed. Looks sell, and the people who present themselves better can get preferential treatment. A flight attendant admitted that he would always give a cute passenger a free drink.
Make their job easier
Keeping your area clean is one small effort to help your flight attendant. It’s really not an easy job being one, so however you lighten their load would be appreciated. They will notice you if you help other passengers too.
Keep the rules
What’s worse than an unruly passenger that refuses to sit down and buckle up during takeoff and landing? Or texting despite the announcement to switch off all mobile devices? Don’t stick out like a sore thumb. Nothing will turn the crew against you more than being annoying.
