Tray tables up!
Cabin Crew are sometimes forced to witness the worst things. A lot of which involve passengers doing disgusting things with tray tables.
One member of Cabin Crew said that they’d seen travellers changing baby’s nappies and clipping their toenails on top of their tray tables.
And that’s not to mention the things found stuffed down the sides of seats: soiled clothing, used tissues and dirty nappies.
Cabin Crew run a tight ship and planes have to be cleaned at lightning speed on turnaround flights. This means that a lot of places might be missed until a more thorough clean at the end of the day. Don’t be gross, people! Use your tray table for what it was designed for!
Cabin Crew might find unpleasant surprises in the seat pockets. Some of the worst things Cabin Crew have found include half-chewed food, used underwear and overflowing vomit bags.
To all Cabin Crew out there, we salute you. You’re doing a heroic job!
