As a flight attendant (uniform) and mom (yoga pants) I find one of the only times I dress up is to fly or more specifically, nonrev. Non-reving or space available travel are airline terms for non-revenue passengers or employees and their pass riders. Sad but true I get excited to nonrev because I can pull out my nice clothes to wear. This is one great way to tell who the non-revs are on your flight but, a few “real” passengers still dress nice so I asked my fellow galley gabbers, “how else can you tell who is nonreving on your flight?” Here is their top ten list:
10. They bring treats for the crew.
9. Being way too helpful with the other passengers and answering questions.
8. They are the last to board.
7. Cover their head with a blanket or jacket like a tent and don’t ask for anything.
6. They’re seated at the exit rows.
5. The luggage (mainly the tote bag).
4. They ask “Do you have enough?” when offered anything.
3. They’re seen rearranging the overheads and seem to know just how to arrange everything like pieces in a puzzle.
2. On the rare occasion they’re in first class, they eat and drink you out of house and home!
1. It’s stamped on their forehead…duh;)
