Daily Mail has up on its website an entertaining read what passenger habits drive flight attendants nuts.
There is nothing earth shuttering on this article for those of us that tend to travel frequently, but it is funny regardless.
You can access this Daily Mails piece here.
Here are the things that anger flight attendants:
Doing exercises in the aisles or the galley
Passengers who notice empty seats in business class and ask to be upgraded
Passengers who ask flight attendants to put their bags in the overhead lockers
Asking cabin staff to call ahead to hold a connecting flight
Economy passengers asking to use the first class bathroom
Frequently asking to borrow pens
Leaving your headphones on while giving your drink order
Asking to arrange a switch between seats so a passenger can sit next to their friend
Have to admit that I was guilty of asking a pen from flight attendant this morning, so that I could fill out the immigration form. Luckily Qatar Airways stocks pens for this purpose (unlike some other airlines).
If an older passenger asks a flight attendant to help with his/her bag, I don’t see nothing wrong with this.
I could have added one more to the list above that the flight attendants with the legacy airlines in the United States seem to hate. They sometimes call the “call button” as flight attendant emergency call one implying that it should only be used in life threatening circumstances. I have no problem pressing it (and keep dinging) if I happen to need something.
