15 Airline Secrets You Should Know Before Your Next Flight

Before becoming a travel blogger, I spent 13 years working is various roles for a major international airline. Those were a great 13 years. Working for an airline is interesting, challenging and generally a lot of fun (most of the time).

Well, this article is no novel, but I managed to put together a list of 15 things that go on behind the scenes in an airline that might interest you, especially if you travel regularly. From passengers behaving so badly they forced the plane to divert to the nearest airport, to flight attendants doing the unthinkable. I’ve seen it all.

Read about all these airline secrets and more on our recent article published on We Are Travel Girls – click here to read more.
