never taken anything except safety cards (and even then only if I don't have it yet, I collect for myself only, not for trade) and maybe an inflight mag to get the timetables.
Migth have taken some bags of peanuts leftover from the meal, but those were freely given  Smile

I took the little glass salt and pepper shakers from a Midwest Express flight once, but that's all.

Why would you take a safety card? You know that airlines dont go through every seat after every flight to make sure there are emergency cards there. What if you happen to take someone's card and they dont get a chance to look at it for one reason or another? These things are not toys for you to take off airplanes. As for the blankets, it's the same thing that goes on in hotels. If you're that desperate to get a fork or a towel, go right ahead and make yourself look like an idiot.

If you take, you steal! Consider safety, consider costs, consider the act of stealing! If you really want something ...ask! I have, and I have been surprised at the actions of most airlines (great advertising and free)
Offer to purchase items as well, in most cases you will be given the item free of any charge and it usually is given to you with a smile! Good advice from a person who asks and gets! Sonic

Sonic's way is best. I think that this craze of lifting safety cards is a very serious offence. Should I ever see somebody doing it I would have no hesitation in reporting them and I would hope to see them locked up for a few good years (some chance though)! Too many morons calling themselves enthusiasts in airplanes these days! Grow up!

I once took the number 2 engine from a BA 744 when the pilots weren't looking. Thing is, I got caught at customs when they asked why my bag was so heavy. Boy did I feel embarassed!

I've never taken anything that aren't already there for passengers to consume already. I've never taken safety cards, magazines, blankets or anything like that since those are re-useable but I've taken puke bags, soap, etc that has the airline's logo on it.

When I get on a plane, I clean out the seat back pocket immediatley and put it all in my back pack. Once I took a sweet Embraer decal off of the bulk head of a CO ERJ.

Every flight that I'm on, I take a spoon. I guess it's a superstition. Other than that, nothing.

I thought you were allowed to take the Mags anyway. The Aer Lingus Magazine 'Cara' says on the cover 'Your complimetary copy' so I suppose that I am just allowed to take it.  Confused

I always take the inflight magazines, i have loads of 'High Life' and 'Holland Herald'. You are allowed to take them, and on the KLM magazines it says Your Copy To Keep/ They wouldn't put that on there if you weren't allowed to!

I usually take in flight mags and safety cards.
Magazines are free to take since almost all have written " Your free copy" on them.
I used to ask for safety cards before but now i just take them.
The FA s always say yes anyway.

Ben88: Cleaning staff goes thru every seat and fills in safety cards, magazines and barf bags when needed.
I know since i do it every day.

But one thing we dont check is life wests.
So those of you who take life wests , imagine how you would feel if there was an emergency landing on water and you discovered that there wasent any lifewest under your seat.
I suppose that there are always some extra wests , but in an emergency there is no time to look for them.
