If one thing is certain is that being a flight attendant is not easy at all. Long hours flights, endless grumpy passengers, cramped spaces, the constant buzz of a deafening engine, and, of course, the ever-present pressure – all that on you.
However, you need to be a tough one to become a flight attendant. Still, there are still plenty of things that leave flight attendants completely horrified, no matter how strong they are. Read on to discover them!
Passengers who drink the tap water
“Drinking water from the tap on a plane is horrifying,” says flight attendant Craig Wilcox. And, according to one study published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, Wilcox has a right to be scared.
The research found that many flights’ water supply tested positive for a range of bacteria that could cause illness (though no dangerous infectious microorganisms, such as E. coli, Legionella, and Enterococcus, were found).
Flight attendants and researchers strongly advise airline passengers to never drink water aboard an airplane unless it’s sealed in a bottle. So, if the stewardess avoids drinking tap water, you should do that too.

I travel everyyear for 6 months. When I know that the season is too many rude people will be travelling, I will book on the business class. On the economy class, most of those travel for the first time were such a jerk, they will just stand up and wants to get out of their seat even when they see you have your meal on the table. Another thing with the arm rest. the armrest is to be share by two persons seating next to each other but they do not think about that… they will just put their arm not only on the whole arm rest but invading into your seat. I think when they booked a flight thru any travel agent or airline booking… they should print a do and do not do inside the plane.
