If you’ve got a long flight coming up in the near future, then listen up! We, your flight attendants, know you want to have a happy flight, and we want to make sure you get that happy flight. You probably already know that your experience aboard our plane largely depends on us. Given that, doesn’t it just make sense that you’d want us on your side? With that in mind, here are 10 tips that we can give you to ensure you have a happy flight – one where you might even get a few freebies along the way…
1. Watch It with the Call Button
Would you like someone ringing a bell to summon you somewhere? We’ll be passing by before you know it, so just hold on… (And if you’re going to use the call button, then be sure to heed tip #7!)
2. Oversized Bags Don’t Fit… Period!
Those checked baggage fees are a drag… We get it! However, even if you get it onto the airplane that doesn’t mean it’s going to fit in the overhead compartment. Accept this, and feel happier.
3. No Feet on the Walls, Please!
If you land one of the seats that’s in the bulkhead rows, then appreciate the legroom and keep your feet off the walls.
4. No Dirty Diapers, Please!
It’s understood that traveling with babies is a drag. But, sometimes new parents have this habit of handing us dirty diapers to dispose of… Gross, right? Don’t do it.
5. We Make Special Occasions Special
If you’re traveling somewhere for a special occasion – a birthday, a honeymoon, an anniversary – then let us know! We’d love to have a little bit of fun making a big deal out of it.
