The trick flight attendants use when they don’t want to talk to you

The trick flight attendants use when they don’t want to talk to you

A former flight attendant has revealed the sneaky trick his fellow cabin crew use if they want to stop passengers speaking to them.

Speaking to KIIS FM’s Kyle & Jackie O on their “Career Confidential” segment, a former flight attendant of seven years, James, told the radio duo the trick he used when he didn’t want passenger badgering him.

“I used to have a trick because every time I used to go from one end of the plane to the other to eat my lunch, someone would always ask me something ... So I used to put a can of coke in sick bag, put a rubber glove on, and walk through the cabin so it looked like I am holding vomit,” James told the co-hosts.

“No one would ask me for anything.”

He also revealed how you can tell if a flight attendant isn’t particularly fond of you.

“If a flight attendant ever says to you, ‘I’ll be right back,’ we don’t like you,” he said.

However, James also revealed the easy way to get into their good books – common decency.

 “How much do you have to like a passenger to give them a bottle of wine at the end of it?” Jackie O asked.

“It’s really simple, it’s not hard,” James responded.

“Hundreds of people come past us and they shove their boarding pass in our faces, so if you ask, ‘How are you? Are you having a good morning?’ We will remember you.”
