What stewardesses wish they could say

I think every person has things they like about their job, and things that they wish they could not do. Today let’s get a glimpse into an air stewardess’s life and find out what they think about their work.

  • First, do you really need that extra soda or drink right away? There could be hundreds of people on one flight. They will have certain times that they will come around and ask if you want a. But they’re human too, and want to take a break from time to time.
  • Put your shoes on before you get up and walk around. You have no idea how dirty those planes can get. Yes, they do clean the airplane before the flight, but it is often not the best cleaning job in the world.
  • They care about their job and want to do well. But that does not give you the right to be rude or demanding. They are people , people who can only do so much Be nice to them, and they will be nice to you in return.
  • They are not going to be able to read your mind. You are one of about ten thousand people they serve each month. They are not likely to remember your preferences, even when you travel often. Give them grace.
  • not They usually don’t know anymore about what will happen when you experience delays. They don’t know whether you are going to be able to make up that time. It is better not to ask them.

Travel tips

The holidays are coming. Everyone and his brother is going to be traveling. Today let’s look at some etiquette tips that might help make your travel a little better.

  • An airplane is not exactly public property, but it is not private property either. Ask the people behind you if it is okay if you lean your seat back. The airplane is probably not the place you want to go barefoot. They clean the airplane after every flight, but still that is just gross
  • . Be sure to lock door when you are using the bathroom. That is just the proper thing to do. Do you want someone walking in on you while you are doing your business? Also, do your best to leave the bathroom as clean as possible.
  • Sound carries well when you are in an airplane, so please speak softly. You will be were glad when others do the same. Sitting and chatting with family or friends is perfectly acceptable. But please remember that other people may be trying to work or sleep.
  • Obey the flight attendants and other personnel. They ask you to do things for your safety. Use the compartment that is above you. Wait your turn when you are getting off.

Tips for traveling with kids #1

 

Okay, most of us feel like the best part of the trip is spending time at your actual destination. Getting there is often not fun. Today let’s look at some tips that might make the travel time more bearable, especially for the little ones in your family.

First, please bring snacks on any adventure you take. If it is going to be a long trip, you will want to bring a good variety of snacks. Bring snacks that your kids will consider special. Bring something nice for the adults as well.

  • I said to bring snacks that everyone will enjoy, but you don’t want to bring too many sugary snacks. You don’t want your children bouncing off the walls whether you’re driving or flying.
  • Families with children tend to sit in the back of airplane. This works well for a couple of reasons. Other people will thank you for trying to keep the noise in one place. You will also be near the bathrooms.
  • Kids are going to get bored on long trips. I know that a lot of parents want to limit the amount of time their children are on screens. But a trip is one place you may want to bend the rules. Hopefully once you reach your destination, your children will have plenty to do and won’t want screentime.
  • Flying early in the morning may be one of the best ideas ever. This is the least popular time to fly. So you won’t be fighting as many crowds. You may get a discounted flight. And your children might even sleep some on the way.
  • Noise cancelling earphones are always a good idea for anyone. Bringing them for children might help them sleep. It will also help when they play on the tablets.

We are going to discuss this more tomorrow. I would love to know your thoughts.

Questions not to ask your flight attendant

It’s Monday morning, and I’m feeling great. Work seems to be that much better when I’ve had a weekend full of fun like I did this past weekend.. I just had several opportunities to be with friends and feel pretty energized coming back.. And also, my family is gathering the week before Christmas this year, so I’ll probably work up to next Friday and then take a good bit of time off. I’m not sure what we are going to be doing that following week. I’m kind of just going to play that by ear.

Flight attendants have tough jobs. They’re waiting on a lot of people at the same time, trying to get food and drinks to everyone, dealing with grumpy passengers, and making sure everyone is safe. They do not need nosy passengers asking them all kinds of questions. Here are some questions you should really avoid.

  • You know how annoying it can be when your children whine, “When are we going to get there?” Now multiply that by the number of passengers on the airplane. They do not have any control over when you are going to get there.
  • If you want to know which areas you are going to be flying over during your trip, please go online and look it up before you travel. Some airplanes are going to have internet access during your flight as well. This is another annoying question flight attendants get asked all the time. Do not ask that.
  • Keep your questions on a more professional level. If an attendant looks like they’d be opened to talking to you, ask about what they like about their job, what their favorite place they’ve visited is. Do not ask if it is hard to have a dating life or anything like that.
  • Don’t ask them to do things for you right as you’re taking off. This is one of their busier times. If you need to take some medication right before takeoff, go to the water fountain right before you board.
  • Don’t ask to use the first class bathroom. People pay extra to be able to use the nicer things. You didn’t choose to do that, so don’t ask for the special treatment.

I would love to know what you think about this. Please let me know.

Don’t be one of these

I try to to keep this blog pretty positive. I tryto tell about the good news instead of the bad and of course keep everything very family friendly. But the article on what people hate in their fellow flyers kind of caught my eye.. But I am going to tell you how to avoid being the person no one likes.

  • It is imperative that you get to the airport in plenty of time. No one likes having to rush you through. And no one likes having waiting on one person to get on the flight. Please be as early as you can, especially if you are part of a group.
  • If you don’t fly often it would be wise to even be earlier so that you can get through everything without a problem. Things just tend to take longer when you don’t know what you need to do, or where things are.
  • Some people like to sleep on planes no matter the time. Other people like to read or watch movies. Be quiet. You will also want to bring food and toys to keep your children quiet as well.
  • take up your space. Traveling can be hard on everyone. You don’t want to get on everyone’s already frayed nerves by making them uncomfortable.

Can you think of other tips? Please let me know.

Happier flying

rxI don’t think Mondays are my day, well, this one hasn’t been. I have so much I want to do. But between problems with my Grandpa who’s not a happy person, he’s angry a lot of the time, and me not having the greatest set up with my communication device, things are moving very slowly. And that’s pretty frustrating, but anyway.. Loving the saying, “Tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it yet,” right now.

Anyway, re you someone who absolutely hates to fly? Or do you know someone who does? Here are some tips that might help :

  • First, and this may seem pretty obvious, but choose the shortest flight possible. You may even want to consider choosing a flight that has multiple stops to it if you think that will help.
  • If one of your pet peeves is the crowds, think about choosing a flight that is either super early or late, whichever you prefer.
  • You may want to go to your airport before your trip to get a feel of the place, figure out where your favorite restaurant is.

Let me know if you think these things will help…
