A flight attendant has revealed the 'code' that she and co-workers have used on board to talk about passengers without them realising - including the lingo they use if they find someone attractive.
The flight attendant, called LJ, spoke about her experiences back in 2019 on the Confessions on the Fly podcast, which she co-hosts with someone named 'Joe'.
As part of their 'Cockpit Convo', LJ and Joe responded to listeners' questions, sharing plenty of 'airline-related stories' - including tales about dating passengers.
LJ recalled how she once 'picked up a dude' on a flight four years previously, having been on her way to Austin, Texas.
"He was really cute," she said.
"We had a couple of fun dates."
LJ continued: "My co-worker and I had this code: 'What do you want to have for dinner tonight?'
"And you would say 'Italian' or this or that.
"But we were really talking about the dudes coming on the aircraft.
"So we would have a code of like, 'No, I'm not really hungry for that' or when somebody hot was coming on I'd be like, 'Oh yeah I'll definitely go out for that tonight'.
"When somebody came on who was really really cute, I was like, 'Oh yeah I definitely want whatever it was - Italian - for the night'."
Explaining how she and her colleague used their code to get a passenger's number, LJ went on: "I bought him a drink on the aircraft and then when he came to the back of the aircraft to go to the restroom, my co-worker started talking to him, just warming him up or whatever.
"And then I jumped in and Tony [her colleague] casually walks to the front of the aircraft and gives us time to chat... and then I got his number."
Flipping the tables round, she also shared some advice for any passengers hoping to woo a flight attendant - saying people shouldn't make a move while they're doing service.
LJ continued: "That's very awkward... If you want to grab our attention, being nice and courteous is rule number one.
"Saying please and thank yous... if you ask me how my day is or anything like that, I am so totally thrown off guard, because nobody talks to me other than to ask for a Diet Coke or whatever.
"So that, number one, perks me up and makes me actually look at you and pay attention."
