We often come across restaurant secrets, hotel secrets that we didn’t know about. But today we are here with secrets from airline employees. Like other industries, they, too, have their secrets and most of the employees even gladly shared their secrets online. So check out what are those secrets:
#1 Airlines employees and their relatives have reduced price for tickets
Yes, it is true that many airlines provide their employees a reduced fare. Not only to them but even their closest relatives also get discounts. Like they are only asked to pay the taxes and duties, but the flight is free of charge.
#2 When can you get cheap tickets
While most of us believe that the earlier we book the cheaper air tickets will be, the truth is totally different. It’s not the case actually. Employees revealed that on Tuesday, Wednesdays and Saturdays tickets are a little cheaper than usual.
#3 Why you must switch off the cell phones
The reason behind this is that you should switch off your cell phone because it causes disturbing noises that make it hard for the pilots to get the signals or important info from the controller. The noise is similar to the beeping sound the cell phone causes when placed near the speakers.
#4 Common reasons why luggage gets lost
It is possible that your luggage is put up on a wrong trolley and it flew elsewhere. Or your suitcase actually got stuck on the belt and they missed it. Or the suitcase fell off the trolley. This is why passengers are asked to put proper personal info on the luggage.
#5 Why smoking is forbidden
The real reason to ban smoking inside is that the air in the plane is constantly filtered and smoke wears the equipment out faster.
#6 Minor failure isn’t repaired immediately
Not all the minor repairs are done immediately. The list of things to check in pretty long so they check the important ones and minor faults are repaired later.
#7 Locks don’t protect the luggage
If you put the lock on the luggage that won’t prevent it from opening. In fact, it can be done with a pencil or pen.
#8 Lavatory can be opened with a special switch
Did you know that there is a special switch on the door that opens the lavatory? It is usually hidden under the No Smoking sign.
