An air trip could be long, in addition to being rather expensive. Aside from the pay services offered by the airlines, there are other services that are totally free of charge. Here are 7 things you can always request on a plane without having to pay a cent for:
A look into the cockpit
once landing is completed, the pilot can show you around the cockpit upon a polite request. A good way to conclude your flight, especially for the smaller ones, isn’t it?
A second snack
If you ever skipped the first round of meals, you have the right to ask for a second snack. You should be served one within the limit of the remaining stocks.
A Medical kit
Each aircraft is equipped with a medical kit for first aid including injuries and pain. Be aware also that air stewards and stewardesses are empowered to give you first aid.
An alcoholic drink
Should you find yourself slightly stressed during the flight, you have a right to request a small glass of alcohol drink to help you out.
The on-board staff can give you cleaning wipes, especially for disinfecting tablets, armrests and the like.
Like in movies, it is possible to ask whether there is a doctor among the passengers. In return, the doctor may receive benefits from the airline.
Accessories for a more enjoyable flight
The on-board staff can offer you something to make the flight more enjoyable, e.g. eye masks, toothbrushes or even colouring for the younger ones.
