A Flight attendants tips:
If u ask nicely you can check in almost any counter
Avoiding lines, most airlines have a "fast track card" for you to breeze through the immigration lines, these are normally reserved for business class guests and frequent flyers who possess a membership with the airline.
But if you ask something along of the lines of" i know you have fast track cards, and they are normally meant for business class guests, but if you have one spare, I would greatly appreciate it" most cabin crew will oblige.
If your stuck at the back of economy class and are one of the last to get off the aircraft, Run - literally you will most likely overtake all the slow coaches casually walking to the transfer desk or exit.
Alternatively ask to be seated near the front of the plane for landing , as you have a tight connection.
honestly i have seen his work, if you come onboard and lets say you have bought the crew a bag of candy or something say this" i just bought you guys a bag of candy to enjoy during your flight, as i know how hard you work! "
you will probably find yourself getting served first, some champagne from business class(or as we call it J class), getting moved to a exit row, or on some airlines upgraded.
Bring a jacket on the plane, we cant change the A/C temp warmer as quite often we get a lot of fainters
The best time to get a good seat, is when you see the crew delivering things like towels, menus etc, this generally means boarding is over, and if you ask the crew to move its generally , "once we take off and seatblet sign is off" response.
by then someone else has stolen your seat.
We won't refuse, can i please have a water to take some medication requests, and you will get served almost immediately.
If your stuck in the middle , be sure to listen out for other guests who are wanting to be seated next to their partner, offer to be reseated.
If your there on work, and the company is paying, sign up to the loyalty program, and rack up those points under your name for the membership benefits.
Ask for a quitter room, this could be a higher floor(better floor)
