Cabin crew member shares rule that makes passengers favourites | Travel News | Travel

A flight attendant revealed the “type” of passenger that cabin appreciate most during flights.

TUI employee ‘Mrs Miva’ took to TikTok to share a video where she is seen opening a door ready for passengers to board. She captioned the clip: “Things passengers do that just make sense.”

She added: “Only stand up when the plane has reached its final parking position. The plane can reach speeds of up to 200-300 km/h on the ground, so stay safe and realise that you can’t get out yet anyway.”

Reacting to the clip, one of Miva’s 33,000 followers on the platform agreed, responding: “I stay in my seat until everyone is out of the aisle. No point in it.”

And a another concurred: “Whenever I fly, I always prefer to stay seated instead of crowding into the aisle. The luggage usually takes a while to be offloaded anyway.”

However, not everyone was convinced by the advice. One person said: “Unfortunately never going to happen. I’ve had to ask passengers to step back.”

And a second person dismissed the suggestion, adding: “Nice try, I am standing up as soon as the plane lands.”

Miva also responded to a query in the comments section, meanwhile, which read: “Why does it take you so long to open the doors and why don’t you open multiple doors?”

She explained: “We have no control over it. We’re waiting for the signal from the airport handling who have to adjust the stairs/air bridge so that every passenger can disembark safely. Otherwise, you would have to jump out.”

In her most watched clip, a staggering 18.7 million TikTok have seen Miva disclose the alternative reason cabin crew staff warmly welcome passengers aboard.

She explained the greeting ritual is also an opportunity for flight attendants to assess if passengers are fit to fly, highlighting in her video that part of her duty of care involves observing whether individuals are “too drunk or sick”.

The crew member posed the question: “Did you know that your flight attendant greets you not only out of kindness but also to check whether you are too drunk or sick to fly?”
