I got a great question from a reader on my Facebook page the other day that I wanted to share:
I am flying in a couple weeks, and would like to bring a small treat for the FAs. My question is … who do I hand it to? When is the best time? My husband uses a cane, so we’ll likely take advantage of pre-boarding. Thanks! PS … love your blog!
I usually give treats to a crew member specifically working in my section. Before take off is best, since crew are usually pretty busy once they’re in the air. I make sure to tell them something along the lines of “I brought this for the crew to share, enjoy!” If there’s no one working immediately around me, or they’re too busy, I’ll usually drop the treat off with a FA working in the nearest galley to me. And of course if all else fails, you can hand it to the In-Charge. (Usually the FA who greets you when you board the plane). Hope that helps! Happy Flying.
