Since my life is in their hands should anything go wrong, safety would be my primary concern.
I like my service with a smile, but TBH as long as it's professional and courteous, I'm usually more than happy.
I don't understand people who are discourteous or condescending to cabin crew. I reckon these kinds of people would last about 30 seconds if the roles were reversed. I know I couldn't be a waitress, psychologist, nursemaid, childminder and Health and Safety all rolled into one whilst keeping a smile plastered on my face, for 5 minutes let alone 8 hours.
I have every admiration for cabin crew. When I went through my fear of flying phase, they were the ones who tirelessly checked on me, held my hand when I was being a pathetic wuss during a thunderstorm, and fed me alcohol to still my nerves . And they still managed to smile with the patience of a saint when they probably just wanted to slap me a la Airplane hysterical woman sceene (I wasn't, I hasten to add).
