What do flight attendants notice about you when you board? They notice a few important details in less than 10 seconds.
They notice if you’re their colleague, your general health condition is important to them, they can tell how many weeks a pregnant woman is, they care if you’re nice to them, and they do remember if you’re unfriendly.
- If you’re a doctor coming back from a medical conference with a pile of medical leaflets or like to read medical journals aboard, the crew will know about your occupation even if you don’t say a word.
- An experienced flight attendant will always see if you cheated and persuade you to have your over-sized bags relocated to the luggage compartment.
- The flight crew will always take record of how many unaccompanied minors are traveling today to give them extra attention and care.
- Flight attendants are trained to notice signs and symptoms of sickness. They are entitled to ask you for a medical certificate to prove it’s nothing serious.
- They have to say “hello” over a hundred times per flight, and they really appreciate if you care to say the same back at them once.
- The grumpy passengers are marked as possibly hostile. Flight attendants will know not to ask these people for help in case of an emergency.
- Speaking too fast or too slowly, hesitating when asked the most basic questions and dropping in a lot of interjections are all clear signs of anxiety.
- If you’re always nervously smiling or laughing, squeezing your armrest, or playing with your headphone cord, flight attendants will guess you have aerophobia.
- If you are well-dressed and well-groomed, you have higher chances of a class upgrade. It takes some style to travel in business and first, you know.
- Flight attendants have a sharp eye and can notice if you’re trying to smuggle any forbidden items from Duty Free shop and use them during the flight.
- They are smart enough not to make any conclusions based on just one thing, but when they put a few of them together it can help singling out the troublemakers.
