On our summer trip to Southeast Asia Kim, Lucas and I got to fly business class which was very nice. Our flight went from New York to Cairo (JFK-CAI) on Egypt Airlines. In Cairo we then transferred to our flights on Singapore Air.
While the service on Egypt Air wasn’t great, something (service related) caught my attention.
At the beginning of the flight the flight attendants handed out a sticker sheet to business class passengers. These stickers served an interesting purpose. Rather than be disturbed while relaxing or sleeping you could place one of the stickers at the top of your seat to let the flight attendants know your preferences.
The stickers would let the flight attendants know to:
- Wake me for Duty Free
- Do not disturb
- Wake me for meals
I thought it was a pretty smart idea to use something as simple as a sticker to let the flight attendants know what preferences you had during the flight. Why miss a meal if you wanted it or be woken if you didn’t?
Kim and I have only flown business class a few times and have never seen this sticker system before.
I wonder if other airlines use stickers or have a similar system in place to let flight attendants know whether or not you want to be woken or left to sleep during a flight?
