For you, the airlines are constantly busy with thousands of planes flying all over the world all the time, but to the staff, it is just another routine that’s very similar to those getting behind the wheel.
However, when you become a part of the flight crew, then expect to adopt a few habits that will keep your job professional and satisfactory to the passengers, while getting prohibited to do many surprisingly odd things.
That’s right, flight attendants’ job is more than passing peanuts and helping you fix your seatbelt. There is a long list of things they are not allowed to do and they are most likely to go unnoticed by the passengers.
It is important to know many things about the routine of air travel and what the staff is bound to do, especially if you are a traveler who is constantly on airports catching flights and dealing with the crew.
You can’t see them out of uniform
Seriously, have you ever seen a flight attendant without the uniform?
There are some strict requirements about the grooming habits of flights attendants that have been increasing within the past decade, and one of them is not allowing the passengers to see them without their official uniform.
No, we are not talking only about the time when they are working, but also outside the flight. They need to get into their professional outfits before even getting there because interacting with a passenger with no uniform is prohibited!
They can’t use the airlines for what they want
Many people would think that being a flight attendant means getting as many free flights as they want for their friends and family members, but that’s completely false. In fact, they can’t even send items overseas, not for free at least.
The airlines’ laws are pretty strict, which means the flight attendants (or anyone from the staff) are not allowed to get any special treatment or free services only because they work for the airline… Yes, their job is not that special, too!
