Ever wonder what the flight attendants are REALLY saying to each other?
Freshen Up on your Airport Lingo before taking your next trip.
Apron – The paved area upon which the airplanes park
All Call – Each Flight attendant is being asked to report from their station for an intercom call
Concourse – Area of the airport located past the security checkpoint
Concourse Shoes – High-heeled pumps that flight attendants usually wear while walking through the airport
DeadHead – crew members who are flying as passengers — not staff on your flight
EFC Time – Expected time for the grounded plane to become airborne
Jumpseat – The fold-down chairs that flight attendants sit on
Open Jaw – reservations that leave from one city and return to another city
SkyCap – airline employees that can help you with your baggage.
Slam-Click – a flight attendant that refuses to stay out with the other flight crew while scheduled to stay overnight . They go straight to their hotel room and do not come out until the morning.
