Flight attendant says there’s one ‘type’ of passenger they like the most

Flight attendant says there’s one ‘type’ of passenger they like the most

Do you do this when flying?

A flight attendant has revealed the type of passengers that cabin crew like the most.

Understandably, most of us don't look forward to spending hours sitting in a tiny aeroplane seat while heading to our destination, as we're usually anxious to get off and start our holidays.

While it's understandable that we'd prefer to spend as little time as possible onboard the flight, its not an excuse to disregard flight safety measures.

Unfortunately, many passengers do, with cabin crew often sharing the biggest passenger faux pas on social media.

One of those is TUI flight attendant Mrs. Miva, who regularly shares snippets from her work on TikTok, with a recent post revealing the one thing passengers can do that staff love.

In the clip, Miva can be seen opening the door of an aircraft that's just landed, with the video captioned: "Things passengers do that just make sense."

She went on to write that passengers should always wait until the plane has come to its final stop before standing up and attempting to retrieve luggage from the overhead bin.

"Only stand up when the plane has reached its final parking position.

"The plane has a speed of up to 200-300 km/h on the ground, stay safe and realise that you can't get out yet anyway," she continued, adding in the caption: "There are always two types of passengers. Be that one."

That's right, standing up the moment your plane lands won't allow you to disembark any quicker.



People in the comments where quick to agree with the flight attendant, with one person writing: "Whenever I take a flight, I always prefer to stay seated instead of jamming into the aisle. The luggage usually takes a while to get offloaded anyway."

"I stay in my seat until everyone is out of the aisle. No point in it."

However, not everyone seems to be on the same page with the idea, with another flight attendant writing: "Unfortunately never going to happen. I've had to ask passengers to step back."

"I stand up because being in an airline seat and being 6'5" is the worst. It's nice to stretch your legs," a second person commented.

"People have connections to make but haven't got time to sit and relax," a third added. "Need to get to the front of the plane."

Do you agree with this plane etiquette rule?

Miva isn't the only flight attendant to be sharing tips for travellers online either, with another cabin crew worker revealing the three most annoying things that travellers do.
