Flight Attendants Reveal Secrets Of Flying And What It’s Really Like Working For An Airline

They Communicate With A Secret Code

The flight crew use subtle codes to communicate with each other about activities in the aircraft without the passengers’ knowledge. There may be things they need to tell each other, but they don’t want to scare the passengers.

The bells and chimes you often hear during a flight are not without reason. For example, those “knocks” you hear at the beginning and end of a flight? This is to let the crew know that the most dangerous parts of the flight are over since take-off and landing are the most precarious parts of the flight. The flight attendants notice a few things about the passengers in the very first seconds and tell each other about them using secret codes. We don’t know whether they are taught these codes at school where they are trained or whether they develop them on the ground, however.
