Kat Kamalani (who is on TikTok as @katkamalani) often shares videos explaining what life as a flight attendant is like, revealing everything from things we shouldn't do while travelling to the specialist lingo used by staff on board.
In a recent post, Kamalani said there's one thing that will help you get treated well by cabin crew, saying in the caption: "Your flight will change DRAMATICALLY."
In the video Kamalani told viewers: "If you do this one simple thing on an aircraft, I promise you, you will get the royal treatment from the flight attendants.
"Being a flight attendant is exhausting. You're always in different time zones, waking up crazy hours, and dealing with angry customers.
"So I promise you, the next time you fly, if you want special treatment from the flight attendants this is all you have to do."
Kamalani explained that a little token of appreciation will get you a long way, advising people to buy staff a $5 (£3.60) Starbuck's gift card or a sweet treat.
She continued: "$5 Starbucks gift cards - it means the world to us when a customer gives us this.
"And if you don't have gift cards, you can just pick up some candy bars, lip balm, anything and give them to your flight attendants.
"We will know where you're sitting, and we will know what you look like and the whole crew will make sure you are taken care of."
Her video has racked up three million views and more than 676,000 likes, along with thousands of comments from users.
One person commented: "I never thought about giving little gifts, but it makes sense! Thanks for this!!"
Another backed the idea, saying it often works for them on flights.
They said: "I always give them donuts!!!! They treat me so nice lol."
Many others weren't quite so convinced, arguing that people shouldn't need to bribe cabin crew to be treated well.
One wrote: "But they're supposed to take care of EVERYONE equally. That's their job."
Another agreed: "Just do your job! And be polite to passengers. It's literally your job. You don't need to be bribed to do the job ur paid to so. So America!"
But some simply hit back by saying some people clearly 'have never worked in the service industry, and it shows'.
