Flight attendant reveals why passengers shouldn’t talk to them at this key time 1

In an online forum on Quora, one flight attendant revealed that passengers should avoid a certain time when wanting their attention, as it can cause problems for the entire cabin crew.

Anna McPhee, a previous flight attendant on international flights, explained on Quora why the beginning of the flight is the worst time to speak to the cabin crew.

She wrote: “This is one of the busiest times [to talk].

“Getting the doors closed, seated for take-off and the first service out – and getting in the way of this delicate and often very rushed time is not a good idea.

“The flight attendants may look relaxed and happy to see you – but remember that’s what they are trained for, it’s probably still a busy time to try and stop for a chat.”

Ms McPhee added that passengers looking to chat at the end of the flight should avoid doing so, as they are busy “securing the cabin and preparing for landing”.

For some flight attendants, managing to maintain a romantic relationship can be tricky with all the travelling they do.

In a recent Reddit thread, one unnamed flight attendant shared her romance story, revealing she met her husband while they were both working. “I’m actually marrying a pilot! We started on the same day at work.”

She revealed that for her soon-to-be husband, it was love at first sight – however, she didn’t quite feel the same at the start.

“Initially he was just a work mate at first, then we started hanging out of work as friends for several months.

“The next day I just woke up realising that I can’t live my life without him,” she shared.

“He came into my life unexpectedly, it never crossed my mind to date someone from work but I fell really hard and in a couple of months we’re getting married.”

The unidentified user added that she found it helps to be with someone who understands her work scheduling, adding that “this is not a 9-5 office job”.

“It can be 15 plus hours a day at work or it can start at 1am or 2am. He understands that there will be times that we’ll be away from each other, or he may get a last minute call to operate a flight.
