I’m a flight attendant – that’s what it means when the cabin crew calls you ABP

A flight attendant has revealed a secret code used by cabin crew to assess passengers.

Should the flight encounter an emergency situation, the flight crew will search for passengers who may be an “ABP” – a disabled passenger.

Travel blogger Carrie Bradley worked as a flight attendant for an international airline for over 12 years.

Carrie told The Sun Online: “When passengers get on, you assess them and see if they’re an ABP.

“This stands for a disabled passenger, so in case of an emergency and if I need help who to ask.

“At the door, while greeting passengers and checking their boarding passes, I checked very quickly to make sure they were okay, coherent, could understand me and looked fit and healthy.”

The crew continues to assess passengers throughout the flight on the off chance that a situation might arise.

She said: “In flight it’s easier to continue judging through chats during the service.

“It may come out that you’re a firefighter, in the army, an off-duty pilot, or a cabin crew member, or a doctor, all of which are useful information.”

Carrie now blogs about her travel experiences on her blog, Flying with a Baby.

With her new role still making her a frequent flyer, Carrie is now turning to staff and volunteers to lend a helping hand.

She said: “Once when I was a passenger we had an engine problem and I immediately let the crew know I could be a working passenger.”
