7 Things Flight Attendants Wish You’d Stop Doing

Using the aircraft bulkhead as a footrest.

The aircraft bulkhead is not your personal ottoman. It is not there for you to put your bare, un-socked, smelly feet on. Please keep your toesies covered and off our walls. Your seatmates will thank you

Using the lavatory barefoot or with just socks on.

As you’ve probably heard before, that is not water your standing in. Besides, sometimes those planes turn around so quickly at out-of-base stations that cleaners at that station don’t even have time to clean the lavatories properly. And to be honest, sometimes they forget, or just don’t clean them

Standing in the galley, while we are working.

I mean, do people just barge into your office without any warning and decide that it is the perfect space for them to strike a Warrior 3 pose, feed their baby, or pray to Buddha? I didn’t think so. The galley is our workspace or our office so to speak, so please stay out.

Running right onto the plane only to beeline it to the lavatory.

Were you not just sitting in the airport for two hours? Did you not even consider using the airport restroom? Or do you just have some strange fetish for holding your bladder until the last minute and using airplane lavatories?

Clapping after landing.

For some odd reason, whatever it may be, this is sort of taboo. So next time you’re on a plane, and you want to express gratitude for a great flight, just tell the flight attendants ‘thank you’ as you deplane.

Thinking the overhead compartment is your own personal storage locker.

Generally, you are allowed two carry-on items. One small light-weight item to be placed under the seat in front of you, provided it does not block the path to the aisle and a bigger item that may be stowed in the overhead compartments.

Eating smelly foods that make the entire plane smell.

Why you thought cracking out the deep-fried Brussel sprouts you made last night for dinner on your way to Tulsa was a good idea, is truly beyond me. If you feel like bringing some of your own food, please make sure it is stink-free. Your fellow passengers and the cabin crew will thank you.
