It happened to me once on a US airliner on its way to Europe.
The female cabin crew member came to my seat and asked
very quiet if we not could meet at the destination. I said that
i do not live in that city so it would be difficult... So she smiled
anyway and went back in the galley. Outside the terminal after
landing did she come back to me and asked again but i sad no.
GUYS! YOU LIVE ONLY ONCE. DO NOT MAKE MY MISSTAKE.

heu, should this topic be here ? non aviation maybe ?
anyhoo, yes I did. though this did not happen on the flight...he was my FA on the flight to CDG from the US. Then we bumped into each other in Paris, and its at this second meeting that he asked me.
We lived happily ever after (no just kidding, it lasted a couple/few weeks...)
I suppose its very delicate for an FA to ask a pax for a date.

Quoting Swissy (Reply 3): Actually yes, back in 92 between LGA-YYZ on AA.......... my friend and I got an offer from 2 F/A's......... but yes same here we declined because we were only 3 nights in Ancaster/Ontario....
And your point is? 3 nights is more than enough! hell 1 night would do!
Quoting Parisien (Reply 4): I suppose its very delicate for an FA to ask a pax for a date
yes, a) coz rejection could be quite embarrassing for both pax and FA
b) its unprofessional
c) some airlines would discipline an FA for doing that.
But all good, best way to date a FA is to either be a FA or a pilot.

When I was 18 and enlisted in the Navy in 2002, I used to wear my dress uniform on my flights when I visit my parents on certain ocassions, Thanksgiving holiday, Xmas holiday, Veteran's Day, etc. Used to get alot of attention from the flight attendents when I'm on board. Never been asked on a date when I travel, it doesn't bother me becuase they're 30 years older then me. I get alot of thank you's for serving on the PA system so every passengers knows.
SIX T'S!......TURN. TIME. TWIST. THROTTLE. TALK. TRACK.

I was once given a bottle of wine by an FA on an AC flight YVR-YYZ for being BOB (best on board) i.e. the best looking man in business class on that flight.
I was mildly flattered, although also appalled that my tax dollars (at the time) would be used so cavalierly (word?) by a horned up FA to complement me. (AC was then partially goverment-owned and supported).
I much prefer to be hit on by women NOT on the government purse. Luckily, there are many thereof.
Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.

Most crew members I've spoken to have said that they generally don't ask out passengers onboard or at the airport, due to the possible ramifications. If they see a passenger outside of the airport, though, they pretty much treat it as fair game (hotel shuttle, etc.). That said, I know that the relatively young pilots at many regional airlines pretty much go hog wild when they're on layovers. One of the best pickup lines in existence? "I'm a pilot for (blank) airlines." The average woman doesn't know they only make 25K a year!

Back in '82 when I was with Best Airlines, an FA asked me for a date. I said yes, but it didn't go farther than the hotel room that night. I kinda find it weird that FA's would go out of their way while they're on the job to get a date with a passenger.
Being a pilot makes quite a difference on the newer, younger FA's. Once they get used to pilots, the attraction goes away, I guess. All the FA attention I've gotten was from younger, new FA's. That was when I was also young!
Long live Denver-STAPLETON. RIP the old and best KDEN

flying back to the maldives on SQ, im usually the only single male on the plane (its like noahs ark, all couples going on honeymoon) and Im always given at least 1 phone number or email from the f/as, who I guess can clearly see im single (or recently jilted at the altar!) on LH to BKK, a female F/A gave me not one but two bottles of wine, with her mobile number scribbled on the label. and on an ansett flight to PER in 2000, a canadian FA took the empty seat next to me and gave me her number.

I've gotten a couple numbers from F/a's working trips, usualy they chat it up first and see what happens... I've also gotten a couple passenger numbers over the years after chatting with them... I'd say not that uncommon.. hey if your away on business, why not meet a friendly face for drinks...

I get a lot of phone numbers when I'm sitting in F, occasionally in C, only one ever in Y. One FA (who remembered me from a previous flight) even invited me to the lav, but she was 20+ years older and 20+ kg heavier than me, so I politely declined. Over the years, I've dated 3 stewardesses and have little interest in doing so again. In a nutshell: high maintenance.

Didn't get a number, but on a flight from Europe to EWR this summer something funny happened, a FA recognized me. I could not remember that I'd seen her before, not at that moment. It came to me after a few minutes. I had been on the same flight ONE year earlier and she was serving bizfirst. I started to wonder if I had done something very stupid on that flight, but I guess it was other reasons. She was very nice and pretty, but not something for me, I only like scandinavian girls!
