I'm guessing that's taking into consideration the routes and markets? Supposedly Frontier isn't going to be collecting any portion of the tips.
I'm ok with tipping Frontier flight attendants a dollar or two if I order drinks that I pay for but I wouldn't tip if I didn't order anything. This to me is similar to the tip jars at Starbucks or Moe's.
And the poll is skewed. How can it be 94% say no, but there are 5% and 10% in the other answers? We do not tip the flight attendants. Nor will I start after seeing this.
In reading the article it says specifically "tips on sales". Wonder if they are doing this to try and get Flight Attendants to push harder for sales on the flight of things like alcohol so the airline makes more money.
Not sure it is a push for the stuff like soda and pretzels that Southwest gives you at no charge.
That explains it. I've never purchased anything on a flight, so I didn't even realize there was a "tip" line on the charge slip.
That would make sense; I guess time would tell how much money they would make out of it. I hope it doesn't spread out further to other airlines-that would be my concern.
Huh? There are two answers people have selected... "0" by 94.8% (and the time I write this) and "not sure" by 5.2%. 94.8 + 5.2 = 100.
Ok I read it wrong. Lol.
Are they hourly or salaried? And are they unionized? If they are salaried, the work they do pre and post flight is no different than the work I do outside of 40 hours in my office job, as a salaried employee. All part of the job and my pay is the same regardless. If they are hourly and doing work they are not getting paid for, aren't there laws in place for this?
Now, if they're unionized, I'd guess their contract dictates all of this and it would be a moot point.
I remember one time on a flight a purchased a soda - as I was about to hand the flight attendant my money I wondered if I should tip. In those seconds my brain went back and forth about it, but I finally decided that it would probably be an insult - they are on the aircraft mainly to assist us in an emergency if need be, they are not "servers". (Not that there is anything wrong with being a server, I was one for years, but saving lives is certainly a higher purpose.) Selling/handing out beverages is a side component of their job. IMO, of course.
Well, not sure if this a scientific test, but one of our on air people flew Southwest today and tried to tip a Flight Attendant when leaving the plane and she scowled at him and THREW the money back at him.
My coworker was a flight attendant. On her airline it was wheels up to wheels down. Long tarmac delays really sucked for her.
Face it. In the future, everyone is destined to work for Walmart, Walair, or some other Walsubsidiary for no pay or hourly wage. Just tips.
Then you should tip your children's teachers, too.
I wish Ryan Air had been successful in lobbying for onboard gambling.
They wanted to do it so long ago that Blackberries were still a thing.
The one and only time I flew Ryan Air they did go up and down the aisle selling scratch off tickets. The grand prize was a new Mercedes. I didn't hear anyone scream out in glee on my flight.
The tip was obviously not big enough...
How many times can a Taco be reserved though? Three? Four?
I think it depends on just how much you love them.
Will it get to the point where companies want the public to pay for all salaries through tips?? It's past ridiculous already!
