A flight attendant revealed the code names of passengers they love and hate

Passengers are sometimes unbearable, sometimes wonderful - they all have their own code names

Anyone who has ever traveled by plane knows how unbearable fellow passengers can be. Someone is scandalizing, someone is drunk and scandalizing, someone is rude to the flight attendants. Of course, the flight crew does not let this go unnoticed either.

A stewardess who did not wish to reveal her name wrote a column for The Sun about the code names used on the plane for bad passengers. And what are the good ones.

First of all, the girl, who signed her article with the pseudonym Pretty Fly, explained that when discussing passengers, flight personnel use the phonetic alphabet. This is the one where letters are replaced by short words, a common technique in aviation. So "delta 13" means passenger in seat 13D.

If this designation and the name Bob come together in one phrase, it means that the person occupying the corresponding seat is the best passenger on board (Bob = best on board).

Also, favorite passengers are bid farewell in a special way. Usually, flight attendants say "goodbye" when they see you off the plane, but if you hear the word cheerio, which means "all the best," you know that you will be welcome back at any time.

But if a passenger is named Philip, it's a bad sign. This is a slang name for the abbreviation PILP - Passenger I'd Like to Punch, i.e. a passenger you'd like to punch. This person will not receive friendly service. A tip on how to avoid becoming a PILP: don't constantly press the call button to have the flight attendant satisfy your every whim, politely leave this opportunity to those who have a genuine need.

In turn, the abbreviation SBSE is better not to be heard by anyone. It means that the plane has had an accident and everyone must remain in their seats (S - seats), in a protective position with their arms around their heads (B - brace), wear seat belts (S - seatbelts) and know where the nearest emergency exit is (E - exit).

After an emergency landing, flight attendants may look for PABs - literally, Passengers with Able Bodies - who can help with the organization of evacuation.
