Flight Attendants Fess Up to Watering Down Drinks

Flight Attendants Fess Up to Watering Down Drinks
Jennifer Billock

Do you feel like your drinks taste different during a flight? You may actually be on to something. In a new survey asking cabin crew members to share their bigger secrets, a large chunk of flight attendants confessed to watering down passengers’ drinks while in-flight, among other salacious acts.

For years, chefs and airline employees alike have said that food and drinks taste different during a flight because the elevation affects your taste buds. But it turns out there might be something a bit sneaker at play with the drinks. In a new survey by Stratos Jets, flight attendants confessed: they’ve been watering down alcoholic drinks.

The survey polled 119 flight attendants on the sneakiest things they’ve done during a flight, and more than a third of those asked admitted to watering down passengers’ alcohol. Nearly 75 percent had also admitted to outright refusing to serve passengers when they’re already drunk.

But that’s not the only thing the flight attendants owned up to. About 62 percent made fun of customers behind their backs. One in four had sex with another crew member. Fifteen percent met with a passenger after a flight – though only 5 percent of them slept with the passenger. Pilots aren’t immune, either; almost 12 percent of flight attendants polled slept with a pilot before or after a flight. While in the air, the number is much lower. About 4 percent had intercourse with a passenger or fellow cabin crew member during the actual flight.

    “Nearly 75 percent had also admitted to outright refusing to serve passengers when they’re already drunk.”

    Because serving someone alcohol on a plane when they’re drunk is a violation of federal law

    @alexmyboy That’s what I am wondering! Maybe in Qatar’s Qsuites or Emirates’ First Class Suites? Otherwise, it seems highly risky.

    No surprise. These people travel to places and stay in hotels, there’s going to be a little bit of cohabitation going on.

    @JR – guess who is flying in Qsuites next week 🙂 Maybe there will be a good looking FA on my flight that wants to get frisky. I’ll cite this article for reference.
