Crew members have many code words.

Airline crews use special secret phrases in their work that are almost impossible for an ordinary passenger to understand. However, if you are interested in how the flight is going, they will come in handy.

Amanda Pleva, a flight attendant and author of the Crewed Talk column on Flyertalk.com, said that both pilots and flight attendants use code words to maintain calm and order in the cabin, The Sun reports.

"We are specially trained to deal with emergencies, and panic can cause us to lose control of the situation and ultimately lead to injuries or death," Pleva says.

Patrick Smith, author of the book Cockpit Confidential, told more about code words on his website Ask The Pilot.
