Asking for pictures with Flight Attendants?

Has anybody flown an airline where the flight attendants are ok with them having a picture or selfie with you? Personally, it is a wonderful memory of the flight taken.

In my experience, the airline that has attendants who are willing to have pictures taken with passengers is ANA. Their crews are always so courteous and accomodating to their passengers and even give souvenir goodies!

Just wondering which airlines you've flown and have the attendants who are ok with pictures with you (after asking permission from them of course).

A few trip reports of mine include photos with myself posing with the cabin crew (SN, KQ, EK, BA, 5H), all on long haul sectors except Fly540 obviously.
KL crew are often good natured too.
Honestly, among all my requests, it was only refused once onboard Saudia (JED-JNB).

Why obviously? Many times something is obvious only to the person referencing it.

Yes you've a valid point indeed :smile:

What is obvious:
- Fly540 (fiveforty) only operates on domestic or nearby regional airports from JKIA/ NBO.

What may seem obvious for everyone:
- On long haul sectors, cabin crew have more time to chat or eager to do the extra mile than on short EU/Continental/domestic hops.

Of course, it all depends of the crew, the moment one asks, the airline policy or just the traveller's attitude and more probably...
If requested nicely plus showing a genuine interest on what they are doing, why should they refuse?

Former great A.net members used to dedicate their (amazing) reports to/with all crew. On the top of my head come, Akhmad (Suryo), Ronerone (Roni), Sam Chui, Sultanils (Nils) and a few others. They always gave a human dimension of air travelling, everytime...

Now with the mobile phone used as a tool to blame rather than to compliment, plus the social media invasion and the political correctness everywhere, it might be a different story though; sigh... c'est la vie!
