Flight attendants have demanding jobs so try not to do these three things on your next flight. Picture: Delta.

Flight attendants have demanding jobs. Not only do they have to take care of passenger’s needs, they also have to make sure that everything runs smoothly before, during and after the flight.

Sadly, many passengers are often rude and overstep their boundaries.

These are 3 things your flight attendant does not want you to do:


Flight attendants are easily angered, and you do not want to be the person who puts them in a bad mood. There are some flyers who assume that flight attendants are their personal butler. While it's their job to serve you drinks and make your flight as comfortable as possible, travellers should not demand the impossible from them. Some previous flyers outrageous demands include asking to sit next to the pilot when its their birthday or refusing to sit next to another passenger.

Ask them to babysit your children

Flying with children can be tough. Imagine trying to calm their nerves, dealing with their noisy outbursts and keeping them entertained on long haul flights. It can be very demanding, but it is not your flight attendant’s job. Flight attendants can provide entertainment and activities for your child, but it's not their responsibility to parent them.

Refusing to follow basic airline prompts

Following the airplane prompts is the first rule that every traveller should follow when they step onto the plane. While some do make sure they follow all the rules, there are others who like being rebellious. Some travellers  will try to visit the toilet or stretch their legs when the seat belt sign is on and others who refuse to switch off their cellphones despite the numerous warnings from their flight attendant. By not adhering to the airplane prompts, you not only put yourself in danger, but also may cost the flight attendant their job.
