18 Details Flight Attendants Notice in 3 Seconds When You Board

, , 100 Comments


Good morning and welcome aboard – if you’re
a frequent flyer, you hear this phrase a lot. The moment they greet you, the crew are also
checking out some important details about you: from your physique to your jewelry style. Why, though? They’ll notice if you’re their colleague. … and will be happy to see you. The crew’s number one priority is your safety. They know fellow flight attendants will be
the best help in case of an emergency. They know exactly how to deal with it, so
they won’t panic but help the crew evacuate passengers and provide first aid if necessary. They’ll check out your reading material. Just like fellow flight attendants, doctors,
nurses, and other medical professionals will be super helpful in case something goes wrong. So if you’re a doctor coming back from a
medical conference with a pile of medical leaflets or like to read medical journals
aboard, the crew will know about your occupation even if you don’t say a word. Your carry-on size matters. You are only allowed this amount of carry-on
of a certain maximum size for a reason. An experienced flight attendant will always
see if you cheated and persuade you to have your over-sized bags relocated to luggage
compartment. Otherwise, they can fall out of the over-head,
hurt yourself and other passengers and block the crucially important aisles. Fitting them under the seats can also clog
up the aisles. And even on a perfectly normal flight, loading
and off-loading a bunch of bags just takes extra time. Your age is a big deal, too. The flight crew will always take record of
how many unaccompanied minors are traveling today to give them extra attention and care. In fact, any young passengers get it, as almost
all airlines have entertainment sets or just coloring books for them. Passengers under 2 can’t be seated in an
emergency exit row and need special life vests that are handed out to parents if necessary. It’s great for them if you look strong. Again, for safety reasons, and not out of
their personal interest. In the unlikely case of an emergency, with
a troublemaker on board, for example, they’ll need as much help as they can get. The crew label muscular passengers ‘fit to
help’ in their mind and even remember where they’re seated. Your general health condition is important
to them. Flight attendants are trained to notice signs
and symptoms of sickness. They are entitled to ask you for a medical
certificate to prove it’s nothing serious. First, they do it for your own safety and
well-being: cabin air pressure and change of altitude won’t help if you’re feeling
bad. Second, no one wants to land the plane halfway
there because of a sudden medical emergency. And finally, communicable diseases can easily
spread from one passenger to others in an enclosed plane environment, and no one wants
that. They can tell how many weeks a pregnant woman
is. Experienced flight attendants have learnt
to tell which trimester pregnant passengers are in. After a certain number weeks they are normally
required to have a medical note saying it’s safe for them to fly. They care if you’re nice to them. They have to say “hello” over a hundred
times per flight, and they really appreciate if you care to say the same back at them once. Add a smile and eye contact, and you can hope
for special treatment including an extra meal or even a class upgrade. They do remember if you’re unfriendly. If for some reason you can’t utter a “hello”
on entering the plane, you’re not just demonstrating bad manners. In fact, the crew are testing passengers in
this way. The grumpy ones are marked as possibly hostile. Flight attendants will know not to ask these
people for help in case of an emergency. Avoiding eye contact speaks volumes, too. The second part of passenger testing is trying
to establish eye contact with them. If a person looks away, it’s a reason to
be alarmed. It can’t be 100% evidence they are plotting
something dangerous, but it’s one of the signs a person has something they’re ashamed
of on their mind. They notice how you treat other passengers,
too. If you push your way through the crowd during
landing and yell at other passengers to move on, the crew will take note of that and mark
you as potential trouble-maker. If you help others lift their bags, smile
and start a small talk with passengers who clearly feel nervous, they’ll definitely
appreciate it and reward you with some bonus treats. The way you speak can give away your plans. Speaking too fast or too slowly, hesitating
when asked the most basic questions and dropping in a lot of interjections are all clear signs
of anxiety. It’s typical of criminals plotting something
mean. Scratching your head and wrists, unnaturally
tense facial muscles, stiff movements, coughing, excessive nodding and head shaking speak of
the same. No one will take you off the flight for it,
but it will draw some extra attention of the crew to you. They will know if you’re aerophobic. If you’re always nervously smiling or laughing,
squeezing your armrest, or playing with your headphone cord, flight attendants will guess
you have aerophobia. And they’ll do their best to make you feel
comfortable. They’ll try to cheer you up and if it doesn’t
work they’ll leave you alone and keep an eye out from the distance to help prevent
a starting panic attack. Speaking of aerophobia and panic attacks,
I think I’m having one right now – just kidding. Lemme ask you: do you love flying or do you
feel uncomfortable in the air? Let me know in the comment section below. The way you’re dressed can make a difference. If you are well-dressed and well-groomed,
you have higher chances of a class upgrade. It takes some style to travel in business
and first, you know. Another reason the crew check out your outfit
is to see if anything you’re wearing can be an obstacle if you have to leave the plane
in an emergency. It’s not just stuff that’s loose or bulky,
but also flammable materials. They care what kind of jewelry you’re wearing. It matters just as much as clothing when it
comes to safety. Massive earrings or bracelet can slow down
evacuation. Who you’re boarding with is also important. If you’re traveling with your family but
for some reason have seats in different rows, the crew can try to seat you together during
boarding. It will make the flight more pleasant for
everyone aboard. One more important thing here: if the physically
fit man they’ve noticed a few points ago is with his family, the crew will have to
look for someone else as a prospective help. A family man will more likely save his dear
ones first, and not risk his life for other passengers. They have an eye for contraband items. Flight attendants have a sharp eye and can
notice if you’re trying to smuggle any forbidden items from Duty Free shop and use them during
the flight. Some people also smuggle their miniature pets
in purses and handbags. Woof woof woof. They can single out frequent flyers. Frequent flyers like to get the special treatment
they deserve for their loyalty to the airline. They will unlikely put on a nametag with their
flight status on it, but when the crew do research on passengers they get an idea of
what those people look like. All the factors I mentioned help the crew
in making your flight the safest. They are smart enough not to make any conclusions
based on just one thing, but when they put a few of them together it can help singling
out the troublemakers. So if you don’t want to be considered one
of those, you know what to do now! Woof woof. Hey I’ll let you out later. Good dog. Hey, if you learned something new today, then
give the video a like and share it with a friend! And here are some other videos I think you’ll
enjoy. Just click to the left or right, and stay
on the Bright Side of life!

    To some Native Americans direct eye contact is insulting. Individuals with Autism won't look individuals in the eyes either typically. So not all eye contact should be seen as just rude. There are reasons why some won't make eye contact.

    I know several flight attendants and they said they check out men's "packets " …and we're not talking their hand luggage.

    Little of this has been true in my experience. Ive never been assured during my flight anxiety or recieved treats for being nice and friendly. However they do ALWAYS redirect my baggage to check-in rather than allowing me overhead space.

    The first time I ever flew in a plane was for my senior trip. The flight attendant asked me if i had anxiety or just simply had to many energy drinks because i would not stop talking and i just explained that I had never flown before and my adrenaline was up due to excitement. The ended up upgrading my entire class. Not sure if my honesty had anything to do with it but it made the flight pretty awesome!

    Flying for me just feels as normal as driving in a car( In my case, a passenger. Y’all can guess why.)

    If I can't keep eye contact, it's not because I'm scheming something – it's probably because of my crippling low self-worth and esteem, social anxiety and me not interacting enough with fellow humans.

    i have flown A LOT, and am always friendly and helpful, but have never been "rewarded" by flight attendants. trust me, you will never be upgraded unless you're willing to pay for it or the airline has made a mistake.

    Travelling by flights these days are the worst part of the trip. Seats are small and cramped, air hostess doesn't what to serve, queues everywhere, … I doubt if flight attendants do any of it. They are happy to land and get to their hotel.

    Why are only white people shown in this video? I'm giving the animators the benefit of the doubt that it was unintended, but I'd love to see more diversity in future videos.

    As a flight attendant, I have to say we are NOT in charge of upgrading people. At least that’s how it is with my airline
