10 Things You Didn’t Know About Flight Attendants

How to Get the Most out of Your Flight. Maybe you love to travel by plane, or maybe just the idea makes you clench your teeth in terror, but we bet you didn’t know all of this. It’s time to ask the experts who fly all the time: flight attendants to reveal their secrets and tips on how to make your flight more comfortable and safe.
Many of us consider ourselves experts at navigating departures, flights, and takeoffs almost as naturally as we get out of bed in the morning or take a walk around the block. But however experienced you are, learning some of these insights about airplanes can make your flights more pleasant. It might also make the experience better for the pilot and crew of flight attendants who have to do this all day, every day.

TIMESTAMPS
All-male crews are a thing of the past. 1:21
Not waiters, but captain’s assistants! 2:36
The crew is just as frustrated as you are. 3:25
Don’t sleep during takeoff or landing. 4:05
Sleeping when cruising is a great idea. 5:13
Chicken or fish? 5:47
Follow instructions — or else! 6:42
Sit toward the back. 7:45
Rely on your flight attendants. 8:49
Flying tips straight from the pros! 9:18

Music:


SUMMARY
-Before 1930, the crews of airplanes were 100% male, including the pilot, ground crew, and all of the flight attendants. Over a hundred years, the gender roles reversed, and many now see this as a primarily female profession.
-In reality, a flight attendant’s job is to assist the captain by managing the cabin during a flight.
-Airline crews are typically paid by the hour, but only the hours spent in actual flight are paid. A flight doesn’t actually start until the door is closed.
-Experienced flight attendants recommend avoiding falling asleep on take-off, descent, and landing. Not only will you not be attentive during these dangerous parts of the flight, but it can impinge on your comfort.
-Attendants encourage passengers to sleep on night flights, deliberately delaying food service to let people fall asleep.
-Some flight attendants use a trick to get more people to choose the fish: they say that the fish is a “special” from the “chef,” reserved exclusively for this flight.
-Some airlines supply their flight attendants with tasers to deal with passengers who don’t comply. Safety is very important on planes, and they’ve got to be able to control a situation.
-Especially if you’re a nervous flier, you’ll be pleased to know that the back seats tend to be far safer, statistically speaking.
-Flight attendants are trained in first aid and CPR. They can treat small wounds, assess symptoms of common traveler illnesses, and even deliver babies in-flight.
-Never take your shoes off on a plane. Lots of passengers use fold-down tables for all sorts of things: as writing surfaces, pillows (with drool-catching action!), or places to change a baby. Use antibacterial disinfectant, and clean the tray for your own safety. Flight attendants have very little free time during a flight. If you’re thirsty, rather than pressing the call button, consider going up to them to ask for a glass of water.

10 Flight Attendant Secrets You Don’t Know About

A plane in the eyes of flight attendants and a plane in the eyes of passengers are two completely different worlds. We often have no idea about some secrets that the crew is hiding.
Here are ten tips from flight attendants on how to get the maximum comfort in a plane. Pay attention to fact number 10: doing this, you actually insult air hostesses!

TIMESTAMPS
You’re allowed to ask for more food 0:33
Check the presence of a life vest before taking off 1:00
If you accidentally smoked, use the ashtrays 1:37
Don’t be squeamish during the flight 2:04
The lavatory door can be opened from the outside 2:38
Be the last person to board 3:02
Avoid too much alcohol 3:29
Avoid the bulkhead seats 3:51
Drink only bottled water 4:13
Don’t applaud at the end of flight 4:48

SUMMARY
- All excess containers with food are immediately discarded after the flight. Therefore, if your stomach demands more, don’t be ashamed to ask a flight attendant for another serving.
- For safety reasons, always check your seat before the flight to make sure the life vest is there and not stolen by some sentimental kleptomaniac.
- If you suddenly find yourself in the lavatory with a cigarette in your hand, at least use the ashtray. And then pay the fine.
- Blankets and pillows aren’t washed, just refolded. Food trays aren’t washed. The seat trays are wiped, the carpets are cleaned, but you cannot be sure there wasn’t a passenger in your seat who suddenly felt sick.
- Many aircraft have the door lock mechanism itself installed under the No Smoking sign on the toilet door. If you raise the flap with the cigarette image and turn the bolt, the door will open.
- If you and your fellow traveler checked in at a different time, there’s a solution: just board last. When all the passengers take their seats, you can immediately see which seats are free. 
- Flight attendants warn that one glass in the sky is equal to two on the ground. And it's true since altitude affects blood in such a way that alcohol during a flight affects you much more than on the ground.
- If there are passengers with babies onboard, they’ll most likely take the bulkhead seats. This happens because it’s easier and safer to place a baby carrier there. 
- It’s better to drink only bottled liquid onboard. You should avoid tea, coffee, and water from the sink.
- The flight is not a roulette game; this is their job. People who travel a lot know this and don't clap as much.

11 Secrets Flight Attendants Will Never Tell You

It’s hard to surprise an experienced traveler, but there are still some things you’ve probably never thought of. Did you know that anyone can open a locked lavatory door from outside while you’re inside?! Sound uncomfortable, right? Here're several secrets that are only known to employees and the most curious passengers.

#planesecrets #flightattendants #airplane

TIMESTAMPS:

Hooks on the wings 0:57

An ax in the cockpit 1:25

The black triangle 1:51

An auxiliary power unit 2:20

Air Marshal Service 2:47

Crew rest compartments 3:09

Handles by the emergency doors 3:30

Air conditioning system 3:47

A Cooper vane 4:15

A hole in the windows 4:45

Unlock the lavatory door 5:12


SUMMARY:
- In most planes, to use an emergency exit slide, passengers have to step onto a smooth and slippery wing. To make this easier, a special hook was designed.
- According to many countries’ laws (such as the USA), an ax is a piece of emergency equipment and must be stored in the cockpit.
- You probably noticed those small black triangles on board some airplanes. As an Airbus A320 captain says, they mark the places where the wings can be best seen from.
- When boarding the plane, we always hear a noise even though the engines aren’t working yet. It is caused by an APU that provides power for the systems while the engines are out.
- Air Marshals fly incognito and can quiet down a troublemaker or even disarm a terrorist.
- Some airplanes have small hidden rooms for the cabin crew where they can relax during lengthy flights.
- Handles by the emergency doors are made first and foremost for the flight attendants to hold in case of panic on board, so they aren’t pushed off the plane by passengers rushing to the exits.
- Have you ever wondered where the air we breathe on board comes from? It’s being bled from a compressor stage of each engine turbine.
- Airplane windows have three pieces of glass: the outer one keeps the pressure at bay, the inner one deals with damage from inside, and the middle one, in which the hole is made, regulates the airflow.
- If your child accidentally locks themselves in the airplane bathroom, to unlock the door from the outside, lift the LAVATORY sign and slide the knob into the unlocked position.

10 Things You Should Never Wear on a Plane

How to make a journey by plane comfortable? What to wear on a plane and what to avoid? Here's 10 tips from flight attendants and travelers about things not to wear on a plane.

Whether you’re choosing an outfit for a short or a long-distance flight, it’s important that you feel comfortable while staying out of trouble at the same time. Watch it and figure out which clothes can put your journey to a halt right at the plane’s door!

Remember, you can totally make comfort look stylish! For example, a maxi dress paired with a denim jacket will look very fashionable, while simultaneously providing all the comfort you need.

TIMESTAMPS
Perfume 0:35
Tight clothes 1:19
Complicated items 2:16
Clothes or jewelry containing metal 2:49
Summer clothes 3:37
Contact lenses 4:34
High heels 5:05
T-shirts with offensive text 6:31
Itchy fabrics 7:44
Baggy clothes 8:21
How to dress for a journey by plane 9:12
BONUS 9:58

SUMMARY
- Avoid heavy perfumes for the sake of your fellow passengers. A prevailing number of people find scented products on others irritating, and there also could be people with allergies and asthma on the flight.
- Avoid tight clothing, especially when your flight is longer than 4 hours. People on a long-distance flight are at a risk of developing DVT (deep vein thrombosis).
- Clothes with a lot of buttons and zippers won't make your flight experience the most comfortable one.
- The best thing to do is to go for natural materials and take off any jewelry (even gold, which seems safe enough to wear) until you pass completely through security screening.
- It makes sense to have different layers of clothes – this way, you can always control how warmly you’re dressed. What is more, if your luggage is lost (we all know that the chances of this happening are quite high), you will always have a spare change of clothes.
- In an aircraft, the average humidity can get as low as 10-20%, and in extreme cases, it can drop down to 1 percent!
- Not only can heels potentially be used to store prohibited items, but they also contain an internal metal construction that will definitely set off the alarm. Nobody would enjoy standing barefoot on the airport floor.
- There have been people prohibited from boarding a plane because of the way they were dressed. The reasons can vary: too much cleavage, a low-cut dress, saggy pants, an offensive T-shirt, bare feet, or even leggings while flying on an airline's employee pass.
- avoid itchy and scratchy clothes - they will definitely become a bother on the flight. The thing is, hot and cold temperature fluctuations on a plane make your skin very sensitive.
- Tracy Edwards, who works for AAA Travel Sales, says that if you want to pass through security quickly, you should avoid loose-fitting clothes. There is a one hundred percent chance that you will be stopped for additional screening because you’ll look like you’re hiding something under your huge hoodie.

Check the airline’s dress code.
Such a policy can be found on their website. If your dream isn't to become famous for being kicked off a plane because of your leggings, study it carefully. By the way, that last example with the leggings is based on a real story. It happened to 2 teenage girls flying with United Airlines. They missed their flight since their leggings failed to comply with the dress code of the airline!

9 Secrets Airport Staff Don't Want You to Know

Only the people working at airports know how things really go down there, and they have many secrets they don’t want you to know. We’re about to change that and reveal 9 surprising truthful facts from airport world every traveler will like to know.
Passengers’ most private “bits” that they would prefer to keep hidden are clearly displayed on the screen of powerful “naked scanners” at some airports. If it makes you feel any better, security personnel are obliged to destroy these images as soon as they’ve made sure that a person doesn't present any threat.
Most airports have specific experts called profilers. These people practice what’s called SPOT, or the Screening Passengers by Observation Technique. Their job is to notice the non-verbal signs of anxiety, such as people licking their lips, itching, or looking around a lot. Special cameras that perform a similar task transmit the information to a computer and, in cases of dangerous levels of aggression, the suspect will be stopped by airport security for a detailed inspection.
Before your luggage gets on the plane, it goes through five security levels, and one of them (besides scanning the contents) includes being checked by a special dog that can sniff out drugs or other dangerous chemicals.
The menu for your flight is developed up to a year in advance to plan its budget and save money. In fact, American Airlines managed to save $40,000 after they removed just one olive from every salad they served on their flights.
One dispatcher has about five monitors, and the information on them is constantly changing since the monitors show weather conditions and information about other planes.
Airport staff have to foot the bill for the tickets of passengers who have invalid visas or no visa at all and can’t be allowed into a foreign country. That's why the people at the check-in counters make sure you have a valid visa to the country of your destination because nobody wants to pay for your flight.

Music:


TIMESTAMPS
They see us naked. 0:36
They’re specially trained to analyze “off” behavior. 2:10
They know how aggressive you are. 3:15
They have no idea what happens to your luggage once it leaves the airport. 4:07
They have dogs that check your bags. 5:18
Your food is cooked around the clock. 6:16
The airport controls the planes more than you’d think. 7:03
They most certainly will check the validity of your visa, no excuses. 7:44
They know what’s been in your hands. 8:20

SUMMARY
-Special scanners that require passengers to lift their arms up when going through them actually let airport security see you completely naked.
-“Profilers” work in both the main halls and in passport control and carefully analyze facial expressions, gestures, and behavior in order to detect suspicious people.
-In a lot of big airports, there are special cameras that can determine if a person is drunk or under the influence of drugs. And even more advanced imaging technology can detect a certain level of aggression.
-Baggage is sorted automatically: scanners scan the barcode and sort the baggage according to its destination. Airport staff don’t really care about where it goes and if it gets dirty on the way.
-Dogs distinguish smells from 10,000 to 100,000 times better than people do and work as one of the 5 security levels your luggage goes through.
-Giant airport kitchens work 24/7, and the menu for your flight is developed up to a year in advance.
-There are 3 types of air traffic controllers: en-route, terminal, and tower. Each of these dispatchers has their own specific area of responsibility.
-If the airport staff finds out that your visa has expired or you just don’t have one when you enter their country, you’ll be deported by the same airline that brought you there.
-Special “memorizing” machines can easily find traces of drugs or explosives on your hands.

7 Air Travel Tips to Know Before Your Flight

Many people who travel by airplanes don’t know about all of their peculiarities. These 7 amazing and simple tips will make you feel better and more comfortable during your flight.

TIMESTAMPS
The seats by the window are colder 0:21
Avoid drinking coffee or tea 0:49
Tables and seat pockets are the dirtiest places on the plane 1:12
Morning is the best time for a flight 1:44
The service is better in the final rows 2:06
Don’t inflate your neck cushion to full volume 2:33
Always go with a special menu 2:49

SUMMARY
- The temperature outside the cabin can fall to as low as −140°F to −149°С, which cools down the temperature of the plane’s fuselage. You can feel this external cold above all in the seats by the windows, especially during summer when you wear light clothing.
- Keep in mind: the drinking water used to prepare hot beverages onboard can contain malignant bacteria such as E. coli and Staphylococcus aureus. Specialists who have tested the water on various airlines have reached this conclusion on more than one occasion.
- Pockets on the seat back in front of you are sometimes full of trash accumulated during flights. Yep, they aren’t cleaned as thoroughly as you would expect. When it comes to the tray tables, it’s even worse!
- Later flights are usually delayed because of the ‘ripple’ effects of delays throughout the day. Moreover, if you have a fear of flying, specialists claim that a degree of turbulence is reduced in the morning.
- If you sit in the first rows, you will be the first to leave the plane at the end of the flight as well as get a choice of meal. On the other hand, if you pick a seat closer to the back of the cabin, you’ll more attentive service from the cabin crew!
- When you take a blow-up pillow onto the plane, don’t forget about the laws of physics! If you fill it with air completely, it might burst due to the changes in pressure in the cabin!
- Airlines offer a choice of different in-flight meals such as vegetarian, seafood, halal, kosher, and many others. Even if you have no particular preference, many travelers recommend going for one of the specialist meal choices.

10 Airport Tricks That You Should Know

These airport tricks are very useful, but most people don't know about them.

#Airport #TravelTips #LifeHacks

Music:


Summary:
10. Use Travel Kits/Cubes To Conserve Space In Your Luggage: Packing is definitely a tricky part of the travel experience and should be prioritized in advance. You don’t want to be stuck last minute at home removing things from your luggage, or even worse, at the airport.

9. Consider Late Night Flights For Easier Travel Experiences. During late night flights, there are usually fewer passengers and fewer travelers with kids. We’ve all had experiences with babies and children crying or making noise that kept us from resting on flights. Because fewer people travel on late night flits, your wait-time in lines are usually much faster.

8. Choose Your Seat Ahead Of Time On Your Airline’s Website. Your airline’s website will always include a seating map, and though it may come at an extra cost to book in advance, it would be wise if you require special seating or have a certain preference. Emergency exit seats will have more leg space, as well as the seats at the very front or end of the aircraft. And the back of the airplane tends to have the seemingly endless line for the washroom if that is something that can potentially bother you.

7. Prepare For Jet-Lag In Advance. Depending on where you’re flying to, there may or may not be a time zone difference. However, for many destinations, jet lag is something that many travelers have suffered from, and it’s best to be prepared ahead of time for this. Check the local time of your destination to try to adjust your schedule accordingly before departing. It can be a tough time if you arrive in another time zone with little sleep, and are forced to navigate your way around.

6. Free Wi-Fi Can Be Found Anywhere At The Airport. In this day and age, most people try to connect to Wi-Fi in almost any building that they enter. Luckily for travelers, airports have terminal-wide Wi-Fi that you can enjoy before departure. This can help you pass the time as you wait to board your flight, and can be found almost anywhere at your local airport. Whether you want to browse social media or get work done on your laptop, you can enjoy the complimentary Wi-Fi and plug in until you leave.

5. Fly With A Pet If You’re Afraid Of Flying Alone. If you’re traveling alone for the first time, or have a fear of flying, you may be allowed to travel with your pet, if you have one. You can get special permission from your psychologist if you require your pet for support, and some European or American airlines will allow you this luxury.

4. Buy A Pass To The Lounge Zone If Spending Excess Time At The Airport. Lounge zones are available at most airports for travelers and aren’t very expensive either. There, you will find a less crowded waiting area, food and drink spots, internet connection, and resting spots with couches. Sometimes, you’ll even get a shower area and private rooms to sleep in, which are all included in your fee.

3. Check The “Lost And Found” For Free Headphones If You Forgot Yours. For many travelers, earphones and headphones are important because they allow them to plug into their chosen entertainment during their journey. In the unfortunate case that you forgot yours, you may be in luck. People lose things all the time at the airport, and after three months of not being claimed, cheap items can be given to you for free at the discretion of employees.

2. Use Airport Assistance For Young Travelers, Disabled, And Elderly. Depending on the airplane you’ve chosen, there is airport assistance available for those in need. Whether it is for a young traveler flying alone for the first time, or a senior who requires boarding assistance, airports and airlines work to ensure that you are given the travel assistance you need.


1. Use A GPS-Tracker To Locate Your Luggage. It’s everyone’s worst nightmare: losing your luggage at the airport once you reach your destination, or even misplacing your luggage before check in. Fortunately for modern-day travel, there are GPS-tracker apps that can be paired with luggage. You can even have a keychain attached to your luggage that has a built-in GPS, which will allow you to track your luggage if it gets misplaced or lost. This can be quite the obstacle to face during your travels, and it’s important to try and prevent it at any cost.

19 Surprising Things Pilots Do Onboard

There you are, at the airport, sitting in the departure lounge waiting for your flight. Then, you see them walk by in their crisp uniforms. Pilots – they’re the epitome of “cool”! And when you see those pictures on social media showing pilots taking epic selfies tens of thousands of feet in the air, then you’re really convinced! It’s hard to imagine what their life is really like, but it might be way different from what you think!

Do you know, for example, what happens if one of the pilots does get sick or needs emergency medical assistance? Or if a pilot needs to leave the cockpit and get some rest? Or what are the health risks associated with the job? Or have you ever wonder why the plane takes so long to land? Like, why are we doing circles around the airport? Let's find out!

TIMESTAMPS:
How long it takes for them to get back home 0:36
What do they eat? 1:24
What happens if one of the pilots does get sick? 1:53
Can they sleep onboard? 2:20
Why they prefer long-haul flights 3:03
What are the health risks? 3:28
What the stripes on their epaulets mean 4:23
Can they listen to music in the cockpit? 4:52
What do they do during the flight? 5:34
What “We’re flying through an air pocket” means 6:09
Why the plane takes so long to land? 6:32
So what about a selfie? 7:05
What pilots do when they land in another country? 8:10
Can they fly for free? 8:44
What a good pilot should be able to do 9:11

#planes #pilots #brightside

SUMMARY:
- Pilots don’t eat the same meals as their passengers do. It all comes down to the risk of food poisoning.
- Crewmembers are trained to do first aid, and all planes are required by law to have a fully stocked emergency medical kit onboard.
- For long-haul flights on huge jets, there’s a secret room for them to catch some Z’s.
- If a pilot does need to leave the cockpit and get some rest, another crewmember must enter.
- It might surprise you to know that a lot of pilots prefer long-haul flights (ones that are 6-12 hours). And that’s because they typically just have one of those.
- What are the health risks associated with the job? Well, this type of shiftwork has been linked to higher rates of heart disease.
- They have to do regular health checks once or twice a year.
- Pilots mostly fly the plane through the autopilot.
- They need to monitor all the systems in the aircraft, from oil pressure to fuel levels and even temperature.
- “We’re flying through an air pocket” actually means the plane is hitting some regular ol’ turbulence.
- If you see a selfie of a commercial pilot hanging out the window of a jumbo jet, your Photoshop radar should be going nuts! That absolutely wouldn’t be possible because of the air pressure.
- The airline pays for everything a pilot needs while they’re waiting for their next flight.
- Here’s another perk of the job: pilots get to fly for free!
- A good pilot makes a perfectly smooth landing. Landing is probably the hardest and most dangerous part of a pilot’s job.

10 Weird Things That Happen to Your Body in a Plane

How to behave on a plane? Many people consider this mean of transport very uncomfortable. There are reasons for this as some bizarre things happen to the human body while traveling by plane. Bad breath, sudden toothache, constipation, let alone you become nervous. Here're 10 tips on how to make your flight more comfortable.

10 Things You Should Never Wear on a Plane

TIMESTAMPS:
Your legs swell 0:36
Your tastes in food change 1:12
You get bad breath 1:46
You suffer from skin problems 2:20
Your head spins 2:54
You find it difficult to relieve yourself 3:25
Your hearing weakens 3:53
You feel a sudden toothache 4:17
You consume dangerous bacteria 4:50
You become nervous 5:30

SUMMARY:
- While onboard, you can’t walk freely and stretch your legs. Unfortunately, lack of motion leads to blood stagnation in your legs, and this may cause swelling and even clotting.
- Scientists found that the brain areas responsible for taste preferences work differently in flight. Even those with a real sweet tooth can have a strange desire for tomato juice onboard a plane.
- One of the biggest problems during the flight is dehydration. And dehydration, in turn, causes your body to produce less saliva that leads to the growth of bacteria and, consequently, bad breath.
- Dehydration also causes skin flaking and acne. The dry air onboard weakens your skin’s protective properties, which leads to skin issues.
- You may experience dizziness, nausea, or even vomiting during a flight because the static picture you see doesn’t correspond to the feeling of movement.
- Lack of mobility can lead to constipation or flatulence as well. Long hours of sitting slow down metabolism, and the change of pressure makes gases alter their circulation pattern.
- Many air travelers notice pain in their teeth during flights. The reason is the difference of pressures: the air gets into small orifices and presses your teeth from inside.
- To avoid infection, drink only bottled water, and stay away from tea, coffee, and water from the sink.
- Even those who aren’t afraid of flying may become agitated or even angry onboard. The reason is simple: we aren’t in control of our safety, and that makes us anxious.

Summary:
Wondering what a day in the life of a flight attendant on certain airlines is like, or what it’s like for a stewardess to serve people on first class? Well, traveling the world on the company’s dime may be the biggest draw for working as an air hostess, but there are a number of other benefits that make a career above the clouds an attractive one. From flexible work schedules to generous family discounts to traveling the world, it’s no surprise that many people flock at the chance to become part of a cabin crew. However, just like any job, there are grievances that can plague the profession, and sometimes it’s the passengers who are at fault.

Anyone who has worked in a customer service role knows that people can be unruly and the taxing nature of traveling can truly bring out the worst of them. We contacted a few flight attendants to find out what passengers regularly do that make their job a nightmare in the sky.

My Millennial Life Crisis was started 3 years ago when I was stuck in a rut creatively, career wise, and personally. I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life, I wasn't happy with where I was living, and I didn't feel like I had much of a support system. That is how the Millennial Life Crisis series was born. It was a way for me to let go of my feelings and document my personal growth. Along the way I have found that a lot of you have related with this feeling, that is why I keep vlogging. From now on you can expect weekly Millennial Life Crisis episodes about my life, growing up, career growth, trying new things, friendships, relationships, family, and travels.

10 Little-Known Tricks for Perfect Sleep on a Flight

How to sleep easily on a plane? People who can easily fall asleep on a plane are among the lucky few because most of us aren’t able to doze off in a cramped space, sitting in such an uncomfortable position and surrounded by total strangers.
What if we told you there are some simple tricks that can help you catch some Z’s on board? Who knew that flying on a Tuesday or keeping your seat belt fastened could actually make a difference?

TIMESTAMPS
Night is the best time for a flight 0:34
The best days to fly are Tuesdays and Wednesdays 1:27
The perfect seat is by the window 2:16
Tilt your seat back to the max 3:17
Clothes should be warm and comfortable 3:58
Fasten your seat belt over your clothes 4:43
Get yourself some sleeping accessories 5:25
Control the scents around you 6:05
Put your gadgets away 6:59
Food and drinks 7:34

SUMMARY
- It’s great if you can pick a flight for the time you usually sleep at. Wake up 2-3 hours earlier on the day of your flight to help you fall asleep faster on board later on.
- If you want fewer passengers and more space, pick the most unpopular days for booking flights: Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as a rule. You might even get up to 3 seats to yourself!
- Always try to pick a window seat to rest your head on the wall and not be bothered by your neighbor wanting to get up to go to the bathroom. If you normally sleep on your left side, aim for seat A. If your right side is your preferred sleeping position, pick the window seat on the opposite side of the plane.
- If you want good quality sleep in the cabin, adjust your seat as far back as it’ll go. Just make sure the person behind you doesn’t mind.
- To have a sound nap onboard, you should wear loose clothes made of natural materials that don’t constrict your movements. If your airline doesn’t provide blankets, take a jacket and warm socks too.
- A seat belt fastened over your clothes or blanket won’t make your sleep more comfortable, but it will prevent flight attendants from waking you up if the plane experiences turbulence.
- Light and noise are the main culprits that keep you from getting needed shuteye. So this answer might be obvious: use a sleeping mask and earplugs!
- You can control the scents in your immediate surrounding. Just sprinkle the head rest or your travel pillow with some lavender oil or any other essential oil you like.
- Don’t watch movies on your phone, tablet, or laptop because the blue light of the screen wakes your brain up. Most sleep experts say you should put away all your electronics at least half an hour, or, better yet, an hour before you plan on dozing off.
- If you want to be fast asleep, don’t overeat onboard. The food should be light and healthy, while the best drink option is tea (the herbal variety is perfect) or just plain water.

10 things you didn't know about Airbus A380 I Part 1 I 2018

The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by European manufacturer Airbus. It is the world's largest passenger airliner, and the airports at which it operates have upgraded facilities to accommodate it. It was initially named Airbus A3XX and designed to challenge Boeing's monopoly in the large-aircraft market. The A380 made its first flight on 27 April 2005 and entered commercial service on 25 October 2007 with Singapore Airlines. An improved version, the A380plus, is under development.

Summary:
1. When Is It Best To Buy Tickets?

Buying tickets can be a tricky part of the trip planning process. Time can be the difference in hundreds of dollars. Whether you choose to book last minute, or several months in advance, there will undoubtedly be price differences, and they’re always changing.

2. Airline Employees And Their Closest Family Get Reduced Cost Air Tickets.

For many airlines worldwide, employees of the company are offered cheaper, even free, tickets for themselves, and their immediate family. In most cases, the employee will only be charged the taxes and duties, leaving the cost of the flight free of charge.

3. The 7 Most Common Reasons Why Luggage Get Lost.

When travelling, worrying about your luggage can be one of the most stressful parts of your journey. We all want the things that we packed to stay close to us, and not be tampered with. Sometimes, it can be out of our own control, unfortunately.

4. Locks Don’t Protect Luggage From Being Opened.

This is a common idea that most travelers have; placing a lock on the outside zipper of your luggage. Though this may seem secure, and only you really have the keys to unlock it, there are too many professional thieves who can easily pick it and open it.

5. Why It’s Really Forbidden To Smoke Onboard.

Smoking on airplanes has long been a thing of the past, with people having their speculations as to why. Some may think it is a potential fire hazard, however, smoking was once allowed on airplanes, and there weren’t any related fires.


6. Why Passengers Are Asked To Turn Off Their Cell Phones.

Though we may think that our cell phones can cause critical interference or malfunctions on the airplane, that isn’t exactly the truth. It does, however, create static on the radio signal, which can lead to miscommunication from the pilots, and missing key information for the dispatcher.

7. Aisle And Window Seat Armrests Can Be Raised.

Comfort is a big thing on an airplane. Often times, we find ourselves crammed next to others, sharing an armrest. To our luck, we have access to both armrests, and they can both be raised and adjusted.

8. The Reason Why There Are Hand Grips At The Door Inside The Plane.

Some of us may have wondered why there are hand grips on the door inside of the plane. This is intended for flight crew in the event of a panic situation, where individuals can easily react and knock them down or even out of the plane. The hand grips will help the employee stay upright and keep their balance at a time like this.

9. The Captain And Co-Pilot Are Fed Differently.

The captain and co-pilot eat two separate meals during the flight, due to the risk of one of them potentially having a reaction or get poisoned, and are therefore unable to operate the aircraft. In this case, the pilot will get substituted by the other. This ensures that they aren’t both phased by any intake that will hinder their performance.

10. Not All Minor Failures Are Repaired Immediately.

Why Airplanes Get Delayed So Often

You know this feeling of frustration when you’re about to fly to some exotic country for an unforgettable vacation, and then suddenly see that your flight is delayed? Or worse, you’re going to an extremely important business meeting, and a delay in your flight ruins it! Although it’s never pleasant, it seems there are pretty good reasons for delays.

First, to be fair, about 80% of all flights are ON time — that is, within 15 minutes of the scheduled time. The other 20% are delayed, and it might seem a huge number, but consider this: a commercial flight is not like hopping into a car and driving away. It’s an extremely serious operation that requires lots of coordinated work from hundreds of people. Just recall how many steps do you, as a passenger, need to take to get on board! But still, a delay can make you really upset, so here are the most frequent reasons for that.

SUMMARY:
- An airplane must get clearance to depart from its home airport. Then, after arrival to another country, issues have to be solved to get clearance to depart from there once again. All of this requires time.
- Even a direct lightning strike can’t do much harm to a plane, and it happens more often than you think! However, nobody would risk hundreds of lives and an expensive aircraft for no good reason, and weather delays do occur.
- Pilots run final checks right before the flight, and if they see something’s off, they call the ground crew and fix things together.
- Preparing an airplane is a serious business, and any mistake here can cost much more than just money or time.
- Connecting flights are the most difficult to handle for obvious reasons: there are two different airplanes that need to adjust their schedules to each other.
- Delays caused by cargo are usually not too long, so you won’t be asked to return to the gate while waiting and loading is in process. Still, it can take up to an hour, so you’ll have to be patient.
- Often, the crew for your flight arrives from another one that has just landed in your airport. And it sometimes happens that their previous flight is not exactly on schedule for some reason.
- Many airplanes have precise weight restrictions, and if they’re violated, the flight is not allowed.
- If you’re at a busy airport, you just might get delayed because your service hasn’t delivered the food for your airplane on time.
- Airport employees go on strikes almost every year, and it’s among the top reasons for flight delays in Europe.
- It might seem weird, but flight traffic is getting heavier with every passing year, and airlines keep getting in trouble with that.
- The number of flights keeps growing, and it’s getting harder and harder to keep track of all of them, especially since the ATC equipment is not really up-to-date.
