Nobody actually likes airplane food. We all know that, right? This is because it’s just bad! Most of the time it’s just canned food that has been sitting somewhere on the plane for God knows how long. But a cool trick is that if you ask for a kosher meal, it’s going to have to be prepared on the same day and you’ll get to eat some fresh food.
What a luxury! And in most airlines, the kosher option is not that bad at all. Even if the meal is a bit bland, you can rest assured that it will at least be fresh.
Most of us would get fired if we did not show up for work, but oddly enough this isn’t the case for flight attendants. This person, who used to date a flight attendant, shares that because they had a very strong union you could pretty much not show up for work and not suffer any consequences.
This is a bummer for those who fly as passengers but honestly kind of cool for those flight attendants who like to party and are not great with either consistent hours or responsibility. What we would give to have to face no consequences for missing a day at work!
It has already been established that apparently, airplanes are not as clean as we would want them to be. This even extends to your private table as, supposedly, they don’t ever clean it! Don’t ever put any food on it or you might catch something you wouldn’t want to catch.
We wonder what it would take for them to finally sanitize it. Thankfully, it’s very rare that we put any food straight on the tray table, as they’re always protected by some type of wrapper. But for mothers, for example, who sometimes put a baby’s pacifier on the table, please never do this again!
Most of us know that we would get fired if we were ever to sleep on the job. For flight attendants and cabin crew, this is a regular occurrence as they sometimes have to work 12-hour shifts or even more. This means they have a secret room with beds that you’ll never see! Where is it? We will never know because, well, the cabin crew doesn't want to tell us.
We're officially not invited, and that’s totally fine. Otherwise, how would flight attendants be expected to maintain their sanity? They have to have a way to get away from passengers.
An Automatic Pilot
Many little kids dream of being pilots when they grow up. Honestly, they have good reasons — it’s a very respectable job to have, and we've also heard it pays well. The funny thing is that apparently, you don’t really have to do much for all that money and respect.
After you’ve already become a pilot, which is undoubtedly no easy feat, you can just relax. How relaxed? You can sleep on the job, and no one will know. They owe this to whatever genius came up with the autopilot function. That person should get free flights for the rest of their life.
