4 Guilty Pleasures of a Cabin Crew

Each one of us definitely enjoys a particular thing that we often keep as a secret, or only a few people would actually like. As an example, have you ever heard of someone dipping their French fry on an ice cream? The idea itself would look unappealing to some, but a lot of people actually love the combination.

Just like any other people, flight attendants have their guilty pleasure as well! Most of them don’t feel ashamed of their guilty pleasures, but there are a few who do it at all times that they prefer to keep it a secret.

Different Kinds

Guilty pleasures would vary from food preference, a strong desire to collect something or even a particular smell that people would love to sniff all day. Now, are you ready to know the top guilty pleasures of cabin crews?

1. Taking pictures

Sure enough, you’ve probably seen a couple of pictures in your social media news feed about a cabin crew striking a few poses inside the aircraft, right? They do that because it gives them a sense of pride in their job.

The fact that they feel proud every time people would see that they do have the privilege of flying with their passengers while wearing that stylish uniform!

2. Shopping Galore

After a long hour flight, a lot of flight attendants go straight to the nearest mall to shop as their way of avoiding jet lag. Sometimes, an incident happens that they might have gone over their budget, but it’s fine as long as they still put savings on their top priority.

Not to mention that cabin crews are entitled to a lot of discounts, so it’s only right to make the most out of it. Plus, a hard-working crew deserves some new clothes, right?

3. Eating

Everyone knows that there are certain restrictions when it comes to a crew’s weight, which is why most of them try to eat moderately to prevent having problems in the future. However, food can really be tempting at times, especially when you’re going in and out of foreign countries! There are a lot of choices of food that can really satisfy anyone’s taste buds and make you feel like you’re floating.

4. Sleeping

Not all cabin crews are given the privilege of sleeping for 8 hours straight because of their different schedules. For that reason, they mostly can’t help it when they are feeling a bit heavy and tired which makes them doze off whenever they have free time.

Even Superman needs sleep, doesn’t he?


These are only a few of the guilty pleasures a cabin crew can have. Do you know anything else we can add to this list? Let us know what you think!
