Secrets Your Flight Attendant Will Never, Ever Tell You

flight attendant

A Reddit user recently asked flight attendants to spill all their secrets that passengers don't know about. Here are 10 of the most awful claims made on the now-viral thread........

  • "The plane is disgusting. Don't walk around barefoot. Definitely don't eat your mint after it fell on the floor like Mr. 3A did the other day." 
  • "Pilot here. Don't drink the coffee. The water comes from the onboard system that has the fill port right next to the port the lavatories are drained from. The water system routinely fails E. coli checks." 
  • "Never get seats by the bathroom. When the toilet breaks down, the mechanics put all the toilet parts on those seats."
  • "We don’t wash/ replace the blankets or pillows." "As you’re boarding the aircraft we are judging you—we need to be able to establish what kind of flight we are gonna have." 
  • "When you ask us to change the temperature, we pretend to do it. Planes are generally colder because if we hit turbulence, warm temps will make the chances of someone puking much higher. No idea why." 
  • "Nearly every aircraft has human remains on board inside the cargo bin."
  • "When people ask for the reason for a delay, we usually give a bulls**t response because the REAL answer would spook passengers. 'We have a minor technical problem and engineers are on their way.' But in reality: The cabin pressure isn't working." 
  • "Unless you're extremely lucky and your aircraft just rolled out of the hangar after major maintenance, there will absolutely be something broken in it. An aircraft can have a whole host of parts be broken and still be allowed to fly."
  • "We generally don't know each other before briefing. You'll hear us calling, 'hey hun,' 'hey darling,' 'hey dude'—all of that is because we don't remember their name." 
  • "During delays at the gate, we are not getting paid. We are as p**sed off as you are, if not more."
