Flight secrets: Cabin crew share the most annoying thing passengers do while in the air

Another anonymous cabin crew member said: “The most annoying thing passengers do is poke me instead of maybe using their call light.”

This can be distracting for the crew, especially when they are already have a lot to do and remember and are already serving someone, this can make them forget what they were originally doing.

However overuse of the call light can also be annoying for the crew because passengers use it for the most ridiculous things.

Former flight attendant Catrina advised passengers to only use the call bell when it is needed.

She said: “Overuse of the call bell is selfish as it can delay the crew’s response to dealing with a passenger who is using the call bell for a genuine medical emergency that needs timely assistance.”

Another annoyance that Catrina and her flight team find is when passengers ask them to put their hand luggage in the overhead lockers.

She says the reason for this is that most of the cabin crew are not strong enough to lift the bags up and they are not trained either.

Also this is not part of their job and so if someone brings a hand luggage bag that needs to be stored above, they should expect to do this themselves.

She explained: “Many flight attendants have sustained serious back injuries from lifting passengers bags into the overhead lockers.”

Therefore this has resulted in some airlines prohibiting flight staff to lift anything on flights including people’s hand luggage.
