Cabin crew have revealed there is a way to get the best flight service
Flight secrets allow passengers to get behind the scene insight into the workings of a plane whilst flying in the air.
With hundreds of passengers on board to cater to, the cabin crew are under increasing pressure to keep everyone safe on board.
As flight times increase, the cabin crew must now also ensure passengers are as comfortable as possible throughout a flight.
According to the Independent, some flight attendants spend at least 80 hours in the air every month and have been faced with all manner of situations.
However, there is a way to ensure you receive the most attentive service possible from the cabin crew.
One flight attendant revealed to Oyster that choosing your seat wisely will help determine the service you’ll receive.
They said: “While most passengers tend to choose seats that are at the front of the aircraft so that they can disembark first and have a better chance of securing their preferred meal option, flight attendants know that if you’re sitting towards the back, you’ll receive the most attentive service.”
The majority of passengers believe that the best service is catered towards the front of the plane as this tends to be where first class are seated but according to this flight attendant, this is false.
They explained: “The reason is simple: We like to avoid responding to call bells from the front of the plane because answering one means potentially flaunting whatever item the passenger has requested to everyone else along the way.
“This can cause a problem since planes often don’t have enough extra vodka, pillows, earplugs, and toothbrushes, or the time on shorter flights to deviate from the service schedule.
“For passengers sitting near the back of the plane, however, it’s much easier to slip in that second mini bottle of wine,”
The best service is at the back of a plane
If you cuss at a flight attendant, it’s immediately considered a threat
Previous flight secrets revealed that there is some behaviour by passengers that is sure to upset the cabin crew.
In fact, there is one sure way to ensure passengers will be kicked off a plane for bad behaviour.
Annette Long, a flight attendant with years of experience revealed to Business Insider that passengers being aggressive towards crew members will see them removed from the flight.
She explained: “Disrespect to a crew member, whether verbal or physical” is not tolerated under any circumstances explained the flight attendant.
“If you cuss at a flight attendant, it’s immediately considered a threat, and if we’re still in the boarding process, there’s a good chance you’ll be taking the next flight.”
Aggressive behaviour is not tolerated on any flight
Any excessive alcohol or drunken behaviour will upset cabin crew and may well lead to the passengers being removed from the aircraft.
Annette highlighted that alcohol is a big factor for flight disruption and delays.
If a passenger is considered to have drunk too much before boarding the plane, the pilot will not take off until the passenger has been removed.
There is also a correlation between alcohol and abusive passengers as flight attendants have revealed drunk passengers are not allowed on board as there is no knowing what their behaviour will be once cabin pressure changes.
Similarly, anyone who deliberately ignores instructions from the flight attendants will not be allowed to fly or will not receive attentive onboard car whilst flying.
