The flight scanner Skyscanner has conducted a survey of more than 700 international cabin crew members coming from 85 different countries regarding their passengers.

The work as a cabin crew member has since the start of aviation always been looked upon as a glamorous and desirable positions sometimes even with the high status of being a movie star in the sky. But as they are human beings just like passengers, they also get affected by regular habits and requests by the nearly 3 million people travelling through the skies every day. And it is understandable that some of them can after a while get under their skin.

As a tourist on vacation we usually relax and take things for granted not thinking that we actually are at another persons working place. We only come and leave before and after flight and during that whole flight we are their customers.

This is where a little consideration and courtesy can go a long way and make you a popular passenger among the crew.

So what are the top 10 most annoying habits of the passengers in the sky?

1.Clicking fingers to get your attention 26%
2.Leaving seat at the end before the seatbelt light goes off 13%
3.Stuffing too many bags into overhead locker 11%
4.Complaining there’s no space for their bag in the locker 10%
5.Talking through the safety demo 9%
6.Asking for more blankets/pillows   8%
7.Stuffing rubbish in the seat pocket 7%
8.Asking for a different meal 6%
9.Ringing the attendant bell to complain about temperature 6%
10.Asking for a specific brand of drink 4%
