I was flying from SEA to SJC a few months back sitting in F class and before the flight departed the F/A came to me and asked what I would like to drink during the flight and I said "I'll go to sleep for a bit first" than she replied and said just go ahead and press the F/A call button when I wake up she'll get my drink when Im ready. So I assume whenever you need service from a F/A.

I wonder how many times those buttons get pressed on Hooter Air.  Smile

Although I think its there for any reason you may want a flight attendant...drink ect....I believe it's rude to use it other than in an emergency or for something more important that being thirsty...like "um, the engine fell off the wing". If I want an extra drink I usually go to the galley and ask for it...saves them 2 round trips of walking...heck I usually even offer drinks to others in my row.

Back when I was a kid and I'd barf quite a bit my mom would ring the button every once in a while to get water, wet cloth, more sick sacks, etc.

However I see the button rang most often when the FA gets on the PA and asks if anyone has change for a $20. Or if someone is willing to give up a seat because the flight is oversold.

Wahoo,

When I was a kid, my parents always told me to never press that button for any reason. But that's because I was a kid and they though I'd abuse it. Now that I'm grown up, I guess I'm just conditioned to not press it. I'll wait until the F/A comes by to ask me if I need help before I ask for anything.

Thank you to all of you who wait until we flight attendants come by! The most ANNOYING THING IN THE WORLD is when people ring that damn button for us to take their trash. Just wait! We will come by with that bag plenty of times.  Smile Another ANNOYING thing, if you are sitting on an aisle seat and want a drink..... please don't be lazy. Just come back to the galley and talk to us! We will be happy to fix you a drink back there (or up there). Now if you are on a window and don't want to bug someone sitting in the middle or aisle...that is totally understandable.  Smile

Yeah, most flight attendants dislike it when aisle-seat passengers ring the call button when they are only footsteps away from the galley.

I've also seen ground agents tell a passenger they are locating to ring the call button.

I personally do not use the call button since I can take the opportunity to take a stroll (especially needed on those long-haul flights) and take a little tour of the galley. =P

The only time I can think that I used it was once when we got caught in a ground stop in Indianapolis and I wanted to make sure I could use my cell phone to call the people picking me up at STL to let them know the flight was late.

On one flight recently I saw the FA's "barricade" themselves in the front galley and set up what resembled an impromptu concession stand. It was really nice for everyone involved as the FA's didn't have to run back n forth and they made it very obvious to the passengers that it was totally acceptable to come get a drink. Although I'm not sure what the NTSB would think of them placing the cart lengthwise across the aisle...however I suppose it'd be no different than blocking the aisle by pushing the cart down it.

Instances where I have used the call button.

1) My friends nose started to bleed.
2) The seatbelt sign was on and I needed to use the bathroom/wanted permission.
3) My meal lacked the cookie that everyone else got.

it's so shame on me to confess that once I accidently pressed the F/A call button while in the rear cabin's toilet of SIA 772, then the Indian-looked F/A came and try to break in while shouting " R U alright, sir?". That was a big shame.. i just reply "Well, i'm fine in here.."

I can never understand why people are hesitant to use them. That's why they are there.
Although I'm sure a f/a will now tell us how they are actual individual safety devices (certainly not for service!).

If you need something...ring it.

I use the call button to get a glass of water just before landing if it's not complimentary (like on some airlines). None of the Air Malta flight attendants I've pestered in this way so far seem to have minded. And it's a lot better than leaning out of my window seat and yelling 'Miss!!'

I feel so bad.... I was flying on the BOM-AMS sector and i fell asleep until we'd just crossed over Germany so I asked for a 7-up and I got it... So when I was done, i rang the button to get my empty can because I was sandwiched in between people who were sleeping. It took like 10 minutes for them to come. I pressed the call button and the cancel call button like 10 times...

You can can tell who the truly experienced airline travellers are on this thread. Our regular passengers NEVER use the call light to summon us for ANYTHING. It's only used by the common masses who are now snatching up these ridiculously underpriced airline tickets. They'll watch you walk by and wait about ten seconds and then ring it. Then when you walk all the way back to their seat, they'll hand you a dirty tissue.

My favorite was a flight I was working about a month ago (BWI-SJU). We were in the middle of picking up the dinner trays on a 737 when we hit some terrible turbulence. The CPT made a PA telling us to stow the carts and take out jumpseats immediately. (Not that we had waited for that, since we were already halfway there.) Once we called him and told him we were seated, he made another PA explaining to the PAX that there would be an interuption in the service and that they were under no circumstances to ring the call light unless there was an emergency.

About 2 minutes later, as the plane is being tossed around the sky like a toy, a call light goes off. So I get out of my jumpseat and struggle my way up the aisle, clinging to seatbacks and overhead bins for support. When I finally reach this woman she looks away from the video screen only long enough to shout, "Do you think you could take this tray TONIGHT!?!" Man, I let her have it. I said, "Did you not hear the CPT's PA telling you not touch that button? Can you not feel this plane shaking, dropping, and twisting?" She just stared blankly at me, the stupid cow. I rolled my eyes at her and sat back down.

The "common masses" are the ones keeping you in a job.

If you don't like being a flight attendant, tough shite. Get another job. As for me, I'll press the goddamn button as much as I like.

I've never used the call button, most likely never will. I'm probably the most patient air traveler in the world so I can wait the whole flight if I have to. I just wait for the F/A to walk by and, if they aren't busy, I'll ask for whatever I want. As far as trash and stuff, I just wait till they come by and if they don't, I'll leave it on the tray for the crew to get after we deplane. I think F/As have a hard enough time with the other 70% of the plane without me adding to it, even if it's something totally reasonable. I'm in no rush. I also try to be as friendly as possible to the crew, starting with a nice "hello" and a smile when I get on and finished off with a "Thank you very much" when I leave.

Kevi747,

That sounds like a similar story to what happened to me a few weeks ago. As we were getting ready to leave for Nashville out of Atlanta, the Captain briefed us that it would be a pretty bumpy ride back home. He told us not to do a service and stay in our seats for the flight. When he did his "Welcome Aboard" announcement, he mentioned that it was going to be bumpy and if anyone had to use the restroom, do it now because the seatbelt sign wouldn't be going off for the flight. We passed 10,000 feet and I made the Personal Electronic Device announcement and also told them that due to the bumpy weather, there would be no service and that we'd have to be in our seats for most of the flight.

The captain called back a few minutes later and said we could get up and do a quick cabin check and see if everyone was alright, but stay by our seats and sit down if we feel we need to. I made a pass up the cabin and there must have been 20 little kids sitting together. They were all asking me for Sprite, Ginger Ale, etc. As I was holding onto the bins to stay standing, I told them we would be unable to do a service because of the weather. I went back to my seat, and made another announcement, "Ladies and Gentlemen, because of the flight conditions, and our safety, the Captain has asked us to remain in our seats for the duration of the flight. We apologize for the inconvenience." Not 2 seconds after that, call bells started going off. They just keep going. It was from those kids in the forward cabin. The lead F/A finally went to find out what was going on. They just wanted a soda. She was mad. They kept pressing the buttons all the way to Nashville and during the approach. Boy was I glad when that flight was over.

In my experience, depending on the airline, pressing the F/A call button has no effect whatsoever. I am one of those people who has always avoided using the call button, feeling that if I need something I should go to the F/A rather than command them to come to me.

The only time I have used the call button has been for something urgent - specifically, a United Airlines flight from London to the US (forget which airport now) on which it became apparent that the flight was going to be significantly late (on the order of an hour) and I would miss my connecting flight. The "fasten seatbelt" sign was lit, so I didn't want to get up - but I wanted to confirm what I needed to do before I got to the airport, since I had never missed a connection before (a combination of luck, and normally a good length between my flights). I pressed the call button.

45 minutes later, having reset and pressed the button at roughly 10-15 minute intervals, nobody had attended to me. At that point, without getting out of my seat, I could see 10 other call lights lit up, and not one F/A had checked a single one of these calls - any one of which could have been a passenger in distress, having a heart-attack or difficulty breathing, for example. Since there had been not a hint of turbulence in this time, I finally got up from my seat (ignoring the seatbelt sign, something I hate to do) and went to find the F/As myself.

What were they doing that was so important that they should ignore the calls for F/As? Two were stacking the duty-free trolley, and one was playing with somebody's baby. When I asked my question, I was told that they couldn't help me, and I should just wait until arrival to find out what would happen.

Another United flight of several hours duration was equally frustrating for another reason. The pilots left the seatbelt sign lit for the entire duration of the flight, without telling passengers of any predicted turbulence - and of course, there was not a hint of turbulence throughout the flight. This strongly annoyed me because I felt it to be a potential safety problem - if the pilots don't extinguish the seatbelt sign, I don't know when it is safe to get up. I am forced to guess myself and ignore the sign if I need to visit the restroom, which decision I have to make based only on whether there has been any turbulence recently - as a passenger I have no idea if turbulence is approaching.

Since those two instances, I have not flown on United, although I have had the option to - I have used other airlines instead. I *was* at that time a Platinum-level Medallion member with United's frequent flyer program.
