A FORMER flight attendant has revealed the kind of passenger they hate the most – and it isn't the travellers with screaming babies.
Kat Kamalani worked as a flight attendant for six years and often shares her secrets about the job on her TikTok account.
She responded to a recent video showing a woman getting annoyed by another passenger whose baby was crying during the flight.
Kat told her followers: "I promise you, there's nothing that irritates us more as a flight attendant when people complain about a baby crying."
Instead, she offered her advice on what you should – and shouldn't do.
She added: "So if you're travelling, bring noise-canceling headphones or maybe ask the parent if they need help.
