I'm a flight attendant and we always lie when passengers ask a common question – we have no idea | The Sun

A FLIGHT attendant has revealed that airplane staff always lie when passengers ask one common question.

The original post on popular social media site Reddit was a general question for flight attendants asked by user "Apprehensive Kiwi".

It read: "When you aren’t informing passengers on safety precautions, going over stuff before take-off, and serving, what are you doing?

"If a flight is super long what do you do when there’s nothing to do?"

And a user who claimed to be a flight attendant in the comments shared some very interesting insider knowledge when replying.

Incredibly, the brutally honest airplane worker said most of the time staff had no clue what they are flying over and lie when passengers ask where they are.

The comment said: "Answering questions about what we are flying over…hint, we don't known unless it's obvious like the grand canyon, so if we give you a legitimate answer we are probably making it up lol."

But the attendant also said they commonly answered questions about connections, baggage and passenger concerns.

Other activities they were likely to do included reading a book or trying to eat a snack or meal in between customer requests on long haul flights.

They also added: "Walking the aisle entirely too much just to make sure passengers saw me and didn't think I just dipped out somewhere lol."

One answered the original question by quipping: "When the cap says “prepare for landing” I dance."

"Showing pictures of my dog to anything and anyone within 50 ft of me," joked another.

And a third kind-hearted soul said: "I draw a lot. I like to leave drawings taped on the galley for the next crew that will take over the plane.

"Just a little detail that someone might appreciate."
