Flight attendants reveal the passenger question they ALWAYS lie about

Flight attendants are bombarded with thousands of questions about long-haul travel, but they often lie when they ask a common question: “Where are we?”

A recent post on a online forum for flight attendants sparked debate about what flight attendants do when they’re not performing scheduled tasks and one of them is dealing with repetitive passenger questions.

“People often ask us what we fly over,” she said. “But we don’t know unless it’s very obvious . . . like the Grand Canyon.”

“If we give you a legitimate answer, we’ll probably make it up.”

The post received a lot of comments with several flight attendants going into detail about their routines and what they do in between official duties.

†[We’re usually] answering questions about connections and bags, or resetting the galley for the next flight if they don’t go to a hub,” said one woman.

“Mostly thinking about the layover or the next flight, but sometimes I read about long-haul flights or red eyes.”

Flight attendants also revealed that they often try to eat between ringing bells and customer requests, but that doesn’t always go well.

“I try to eat, which is inevitably interrupted,” said one man. “And I’m happy to help, but please don’t talk or breathe about my food, don’t point and ask for some.”

A Virgin Airlines flight attendant also recently revealed how she packs her day bag for a flight and all the benefits she gets from working at the Australian company.

“Passengers often say derisively ‘oh I thought there were no meals on this flight’ – when I brought food from home and ate during the only five minutes I have time to eat during a sixteen-hour shift.”

“I especially hate it when people come, see me eating and ask me if they can let me pick up their garbage,” added another.

She continued, “Let me eat in peace – and keep my hands clean, I don’t want to touch your garbage and then eat my ravioli again.”

Brieana Young, who is a cabin manager, can work up to 144 hours a month from when she “checks in” for a flight – usually an hour before – and 30 minutes after it lands.

Additional bonuses are awarded for every hour she is in the air and also if there is an unexpected layover in another state and she is unable to return to her home in Melbourne.

Brieana is given a company-wide bag the size of a toiletry bag to take with her when she flies inland alone and returns home that evening.

It has two large compartments that she has unpacked for the camera to show what she keeps in each part.

She’s got Lucas Paw Paw Treatment for her lips – ‘if you’re from Australia you know how great these are’ – her Airpods and Palmolive hand sanitizer to refill in-flight.

Brieana also had extra Virgin Airlines face masks, strawberry-scented hand creams and a can of Bras And Things that promises to help with “any fashion emergency.”

It includes hair ties, a small sewing kit and a lip balm in case she is caught unexpectedly in the middle of a flight.

“I also have some pens, a lip liner, a flashlight to put our checks in the oven, my wallet and a cream to stop dermatitis on my hands,” she said.

She pulled out a special pair of headphones that she wears when crossing the tarmac and into the plane, which protect her ears from the noise.

“I’ve got some pads and a case with all my Invisalign supplies in it,” Brieana continued.

In the fashion department, Brieana’s bag includes a red colored vest to keep her warm mid-flight, a hi-vis vest and an apron for service.
