AN AIR hostess has shared the secrets of how passengers can get special treatment on flights – and it's easier than you'd think.
Kat Kamalani's video on "getting the royal treatment" has gone viral on TikTok, and there's lots of good advice for frequent flyers.
She told 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 to buy their flight attendants a $5 (£3.60) gift voucher for Starbucks, or another gift – like a 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.
And her video's caption reads: "Your flight will change DRAMATICALLY."
The video has been watched just under three million times since the air hostess uploaded it on Monday.
Thousands of people have left comments – but not all agree.
One user said: "I never thought about giving little gifts but it makes sense Thanks for this!"
A second user said: "I've gotten free drinks just for being polite.
"It's so rare these days that they appreciate it."
But others said it's part of the job to grin and bear difficult customers.
"I feel like flight attendants should be courteous as part of their job," one said.
GOOD ADVICE – BUT WILL BRITS NEED IT?
"But there's nothing wrong with a little bit of extra appreciation."
Another said: "Isn't that a bribe though?"
Sadly, most Brits won't have the opportunity to test out Kat's tips this year.
Holiday plans are in disarray as countries shift around on the UK's travel traffic light system.
From Monday, double-jabbed Brits won't have to quarantine when they return from amber list countries.
But the restrictions won't apply to France – even though it's still amber.
And there's further confusion as Ibiza, Menorca and Majorca are moved off the green list – meaning thousands of young people who have only had one jab will have to isolate when they return home.
Meanwhile, Croatia and Bulgaria have been added to the green list.
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps also confirmed that Hong Kong and Taiwan were going green while the British Virgin Islands turn amber.
