-Jet2.com & Jet2holidays Cabin Crew share outrageous requests made by Britain’s airline passengers

“Can you ask the crew to fly lower as my wife is scared of heights”, “How do you wind the window down?” and “What’s in the ham and cheese sandwich?” are just some of the surprising questions which have been asked of Jet2.com & Jet2holidays airline staff.

Every year, Britain’s airports handle millions of holidaymakers, with more than 5.9 million seats being scheduled by Jet2.com & Jet2holidays. Cabin crew from the leading airline and package holiday specialist have opened up about some of the absurd requests they have been asked whilst on board aircraft.

In a survey of cabin crew members, Jet2.com & Jet2holidays found that passengers have made some questionable requests:

“I’ve forgotten something, can we turn around?”

“How do you wind the window down?”

“I’ve forgotten something, can we turn around?”

“Miss, can you ask the crew to fly lower as my wife is scared of heights.”

“Where are we?”

“Excuse me, what’s in the ham and cheese sandwich?”

“The Pilot said we’re landing ahead of schedule, is that Spanish or UK time?”

“Do you know the latest cricket result?”

A spokesperson for Jet2.com & Jet2holidays said: “Finding out what some passengers had requested on our flights gave us all a laugh – especially the cabin crew.

“We always try to remain professional, but it’s great that we can have a joke with passengers after they’ve said something without thinking how ridiculous it is. “My favourite was the customer who wanted to know how to wind their window down. I don’t think they realised what would happen if they did that travelling so high up!”
