PASSENGERS has revealed how to get free in-flight rewards the next time you travel – and it won’t cost you much.
Frequent flyers have explained that giving small gift cards gets them countless gifts and snacks by the crew as a thank you.
Since passengers cannot tip the crew, many people have tried to solve this problem as a thank you for their service.
One person shared on Reddit that they were noticed by the crew after he gave them some Starbucks gift cards.
He wrote: “I was on a revolving flight the next day and the flight attendants spotted me.
“They throw snacks and drinks at me like there’s no tomorrow. I snack after a plate of cheese and chocolate cake and end up sleeping incredibly well (I hardly ever drink and even don’t drink at all). Even usually don’t eat sweets, so happiness is something).”
Others also shared their stories, with one woman saying she also gave them some gift cards when he boarded the plane.
She wrote: “He said, ma’am, you forgot your bag and gave me a bag of ENOUGH chocolates, two ceramic Lufthansa mugs, a pen and a whole bottle of champagne.”
Another shared their own experience: “The same thing happened to us a few years ago on Hawaiian Airlines. They actually gave us a mini wine bag along the way! They were so nice! happy! I never forgot that.”
A flight attendant previously explained how much they love when they receive extra gifts.
The unnamed flight attendant, who worked for a Canadian airline for 15 years, told Rare: “We never expected that. But if people want to show appreciation for their crew, a gift card for Tim Hortons or Starbucks will go a long way.
“I can’t promise that, but [you’re] more likely to get a free drink if there is a crew incentive.
“It’s been a long road for us and we feel appreciated.”
Flight attendant Kat Kamali said just as much as a £5 . gift card do something different.
She added: “Your flight will change in a NO HARD way. We’ll know what you look like and we’ll know where you’re sitting and the whole crew will be taken care of.”
