Air hostess explains how passengers can get ‘special treatment’ on flights


An air hostess has revealed how you can get special treatment on flights – and it’s easier than you think.

Kat Kamalani has racked up more than 720,000 followers on TikTok for her travel advice like top packing tips and how to get free drinks on the plane.

In a recent video, which has since been viewed more than three million times, Kat revealed the one thing you should do that will ‘change your flight dramatically’ – and you might want to take note.

She told her followers: “If you do this one simple thing on an aircraft, I promise you, you will get the royal treatment from the flight attendants.

“Being a flight attendant is an exhausting job.

“We do different time zones, waking up different hours, and deal with angry customers.

“So I promise you, the next time you fly, if you want special treatment from the flight attendants this is all you have to do.”

Kat then tells people they should buy their attendant a gift, like a voucher, chocolate bar or lip balm.

“We will know what you look like and we will know where you are sitting and the whole crew will be taken care of,” she said.

Since being posted, the video has racked up almost 680,000 likes and more than 4,000 comments from people who loved the idea – but not everyone was convinced.

One person said: “I always give them donuts!!!!! They treat me so nice lol.”

Another added: “I never thought about giving little gifts, but it makes sense! Thanks for this!!”

“Wait, people give gifts to flight attendants? I’ve never heard of that, commented a third.

However, a few people said flight attendants should “take care of everyone equally” because “that’s their job.”

One person wrote: “So… we have to bribe flight attendants to just do their job?”

“I already paid for the super expensive ticket to get good service, and then you want me to bring gifts?” asked another viewer.
