If your stance was correct airlines would not be offering any form of drink or food service, when the truth is that especially for long haul they go out of their way to emphasise the service you will receive from their on board staff.
In regard to food, the flight attendants are responsible for warming it in the on board ovens and serving it to the passengers, they are just as responsible as the staff at the caterers kitchen.
Why should they care you ask ? the answer is that the passengers pay their wages and if the service becomes intolerable there are plenty of other airlines out there, how many international or even domestic routes are there with zero competition ?
You’re not comprehending what I am saying. Sure,
the airlines offer meal and beverages services as per what the airline offers. However, the FA is not required to above and beyond completing these services.
As I have used the call bell example that lazy and even entitled pax use, FAs are not required to respond to your call for a drink from your seat. Get up yourself and get it! If you want that type of service, then perhaps you should be flying Air NZ? If you know anything about Air NZ services onboard, you’d know what I mean.
Now, of course, when you’re flying a premium cabin, I agree that FAs should have a service component as the airline is deemed to be transporting you to your destination safely as well as comfortably. Economy on the other hand... no. They don’t have to go above and beyond completing the normal services while maintaining safety and security.
And are you seriously using that “we pay your wages” card? We all know what types of people use that!
Btw, why are people so preoccupied making threads regarding FAs?
Lol have you looked at the picture on the call bell? Your a server dude. In the very UNLIKEY event of an emergency landing you’ll pop a door.
Best answer so far
