Some of the things we overlook while flying is what’s going on behind the scenes. Some of us passengers don’t think much of what is going on between those in-flight movies and naps. However, you will be surprised that many flight attendants and pilots know more than you think about their flights. Here are some things to think about when taking your next flight:

201002-w-seat-airplaneMain Reason Flight Attendants Rush You to Take Your Seat

Many of us have experienced the flight attendants giving orders to quickly find your seat, stow your bag away, and buckle up. There is a good reason for their sense of urgency. Usually flight attendants don’t get paid until they close the plane door and the plane gets moving toward the runway. They get paid by the flight hour, so the clock starts ticking when the flight gets underway.

 

 

 

 

 

Empty Flight Playtimeempty-flights

Every once in a great while, you will come across a flight where it is completely empty. According to some flight attendants, it happens quite often. When this occurs, they call it “ferrying a flight.”. This is when the plane and its crew deliver the plane to its next destination. Because of this occurrence, the flight attendants get an opportunity to let loose and play around a little. One game that some play is “aisle surfing.” This is when you grab a meal tray, stand on it, and let go when the plane lifts off from the runway. The result effect makes you slide down the carpeting to the back of the plane.

 

 

 

Is Chewing Ice Bad for Your Teeth? Jerks Get Their Drinks Messed With

Difficult passengers are dealt with in ways that only flight attendants would know. One harmless method that they sometimes use is filling the passengers cup up full of ice. This leaves enough space for about 2 tablespoons of their beverage!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Airplane Bathrooms Can Be Dirtier Than You Think371

Most passengers have a general misconception of the cleanliness for an airline bathroom. Most flight attendants would describe it as a glorified port-a-potty.” The bathrooms usualy get alot of use during long flights witha full plane. Some flight attendants give caution to passengers to keep their shoes on because the wetness on the floor is not water. Not to mention, but the tray tables can be just as dirty. Some passenger will change their kids on it, get it soiled, and put it back without cleaning it afterwards.

 

 

 

 

flightattendantYes, They Are Talking About You

Some flight attendants can confirm that they do talk about their passengers. I guess they do so to help the job go easier when they have a full plane with many passengers to deal with. Most conversations are not harmful, and mostly referred to the attractiveness of some passengers on their flight. A code phrase that some flight attendants came up with is “hot coffee”!
