Flight attendants travel all the time, and they know some of the best travel hacks in the game today. Luckily these flight attendants have decided to share their knowledge with the rest of the world.

To get more attentive service from your flight attendants

"While most passengers tend to choose seats that are at the front of the aircraft, so that they can disembark first and have a better chance of securing their preferred meal option, flight attendants know that if you're sitting towards the back, you'll receive the most attentive service.
"The reason is simple: We like to avoid responding to call bells from the front of the plane because answering one means potentially flaunting whatever item the passenger has requested to everyone else along the way. This can cause a problem since planes often don't have enough extra vodka, pillows, earplugs, and toothbrushes, or the time on shorter flights to deviate from the service schedule.
"For passengers sitting near the back of the plane, however, it's much easier to slip in that second mini bottle of wine."

To iron your clothes faster

To keep the hotel room dark

"Avoid flying if you have severe cold. It can damage your ears drums, and you may lose your hearing. It happened to me once — I couldn't hear properly for a week and it hurt like hell."

To avoid being seated near a baby

"While there's no escaping (or blaming) the shrill of an upset child, you can lower your odds of sitting directly next to one by choosing a seat that's located far from the partitions on board.

"These partitions, which go by the technical name 'bulkheads,' are the only places on an aircraft where a parent can safely secure a baby's bassinet — and are, therefore, where most children under one year old will be situated."

"What helps me sleep is having a bedtime ritual. Stop using electronics one hour before bedtime, have a cup of tea, and read a bit. Usually that does the trick, but if I can't sleep after an hour I just get up, do something else, and then try again."

To pack lighter

"Before your trip, call your hotel and check to see if they have a washer/dryer available. If so, bring a couple detergent packs and dryer sheets in a Ziploc bag, and it eliminates two to four days worth of clothes, depending on your stay."
—A flight attendant with one year's experience

To get through customs in a jiff

To save space in your suitcase

"My favorite travel hack is definitely the clothes roll technique. I am often gone from home for several days, even up to three weeks, and I save space by rolling my clothes instead of folding them."
—A flight attendant with one year's experience

To never miss out on free breakfast

"If you know you're not going to be able to attend whatever complimentary meal they're offering because you're leaving before it starts or you know you're not going to be up until after it's over, check with the hotel to see if there's some kind of snack or 'sack lunch' they can provide before or ahead of time. Usually it's just a piece of fruit, a bottle of water, and a thing of string cheese, but that's saved my growling stomach on several occasions."
—A flight attendant with one year's experience
