I’m a flight attendant and there’s a reason we sometimes ignore you on the plane

A flight attendant revealed why they sometimes ignore you on a flight — and won’t even serve you, even if you ask.

Referred to as deadheading, it means you might see a crew member in their uniform who can’t help you.

According to Betty Thesky, who wrote about her experiences as a flight attendant in her memoir, Betty in the Sky with a Suitcase, she explained that deadheading means they’re officially off duty.

Even if they are still in their uniform, they are not on duty and therefore do not work officially.

Betty explained how often crew members are on the plane when flying to their home base or to another airport for another flight.

She wrote: “Often we are still in our uniforms but we are off duty. That drives some people crazy.

“If you see a flight attendant reading a magazine and sipping a drink or napping, they’re not lazy — they’re just headed for the void.”

Patrick Smith, author of Cockpit Confidential and the website Ask The Pilot, suggested that the flight attendant should still be on duty in some situations.

He explained that it “is not the same as commuting to work or taking private trips”.

Instead they are still “on duty” and have merely been “repositioned”.

This means that while they would not be required to assist and assist passengers, they would still be required to assist in the event of an onboard emergency.

It’s not the only secret phrase flight attendants use.

A flight attendant revealed how to tell if they’re into you.

There’s even a phrase they use for passengers they think are hot.
