Cabin crew members say ‘Bob’ every time attendants see passenger they fancy

Working as a flight attendant isn't an easy job, but it certainly sounds fun.

Flying across the world, meeting new people, who wouldn't want a job like that?

Also with their job they get to come across some people they might find attractive.

And when that happens, there's a special code word to use so that the flyers have absolutely no idea.

Late cabin crew member Owen Beddal wrote a book Confessions of a Qantas Flight Attendant where he revealed his flight secrets.

He told how his colleagues would use the word "Bob" to refer to good-looking travellers.

Before you think it's the name, it actually stands for "Best On Board" and it's used so it doesn't alert members of the public.

So next time you hear a flight attendant saying Bob, just think of it as a compliment.

Meanwhile, another member of the cabin crew revealed the "cheerio" game as a way of telling each other this secret too.

It's played when passengers are disembarking – so not too late to do anything about it.

The worker, known as LTN330 on the Cabin Crew forum, said: "There's the cheerio game you can play when passengers disembark."

They added: "When you're standing there going 'bye, thank you, take care' etc when you see someone you fancy, you say 'cheerio'.

"You need to do it with a buddy and the challenge is to keep a straight face."

And if you hear a flight attendant referring to hot coffee in your aisle but don't spot a hot drink, it means a hot person is nearby.

Speaking to New York Post, Emily Witkop said: "I recall for a few years there was a 'hot coffee' code among flight attendants.

"You would say, 'I've got hot coffee in 3B!' Which meant there was an extremely attractive passenger in that particular seat."
