My gf is a flight attendant. NO ONE tips flight attendants. If you give your FA a fiver with your first drink you’ll probably drink for free the rest of the flight.
Bring an unopened bag of or box of chocolates for the flight crew, especially long flights...they’ll treat you like a king for the whole flight.
Redditor evandan4 decided to test this hack and this was his experience:
Definitely trying this for my flight tomorrow.
Edit: Boarding now. I’ll update again when I land.
Edit2: Landed. I gave the person in the front a box of assorted chocolates. Keep in mind that this plane was not full. Before we took off I was approached by one of the attendants and they said there were some empty first class seats, and they upgraded me for free. I was offered 2 complementary glasses of wine and was checked up on probably 10 times.
