A FLIGHT attendant has revealed the rude nickname she often gets called by passengers.
Kaylee shared a video on Tiktok to tell her 25,000 followers her pet peeve at being given a rude nickname while at work.
A flight attendant has revealed the rude nickname she often gets called by passengers
In the video, she was stood in an airport and wrote the caption: “Things I got called because of my job this week…”
She then zoomed the camera up close to her face where she looked annoyed and wrote: “Air waitress.”
She set the background song as ‘That’s Not My Name’ by the Ting Tings to emphasise her point even more.
The video has been watched more than 90,000 times and viewers were appalled at Kaylee being called an air waitress.
One person wrote: “Terrible. Flight attendants are more than serving coffee. You are highly trained in safety measures and aircraft evacuation.”
Another put: “People can be entitled d****. I try to be pleasant and polite to flight crew. I know the long, awful hours you put in.”
A third put: “I don’t even work in aviation yet but I study it. My personal favourite is ‘underpaid waitress’ – and I haven’t even started working yet.”
Someone else advised: “Just start carrying a coffee pot and tell rude passengers you’re not afraid to use it.”
Flight crew have to go through vigorous training, including health and safety and evacuation procedures.
It’s not just passengers that have nicknames for flight attendants – cabin crew have revealed that they also use code names to talk about passengers without them realising.
Flight attendants even have a secret phrase they use if they fancy you.
Here’s what it means if flight attendants say Tom Cruise on a plane, as well as the phrase Jim Wilson.
