Why Flight Attendants Check Your Boarding Pass And Why You Have No Right to Get Mad at Them for Doing So
Okay, so another issue was raised, and this is the issue of some passengers scolding flight attendants for merely asking them to present their boarding pass for checking. What??? Yes, some passengers would scold flight attendants when they are asked to present their boarding pass for checking. What again??? We actually wonder why they get mad when it is an airline standard procedure for valid reasons.
Okay so we get it. What is the use of presenting boarding passes when you are already inside the aircraft? There are vital reasons why your flight attendant asks you to present your boarding pass, and this standard operating procedure is one of their tasks. Here are the two vital reasons why your cabin crew will check your boarding pass, whether you like it or not.
When you got your ticket and boarding pass, you basically subjected yourself to airline rules and regulations, hence, presenting your boarding pass to the cabin crew when they ask for it is one of them. This is precisely now why you have no right to get mad at them when they ask for your boarding pass, because it is one of the airlines's SOP for passengers and you subjected yourself to it by agreeing with all the terms and conditions when you bought your ticket.
Just a reminder too that in some airlines around the world, the captain of the aircraft can have you offloaded from the flight if you do not follow standard procedures which includes presenting your boarding pass when required. The cabin crew may also tag you as a potential unruly passenger should you even get mad at them for asking you to present your boarding pass, which may result to you being offloaded from the flight. Unruly passengers in all airlines are considered a security hazard, especially after the 9/11 incident.
Last but not least, it will not make you much less of a person when you present your boarding pass to your flight attendant.
So when a flight attendant asks for your boarding pass for checking, just present it. Don't worry, we guarantee you that you will not be demoted in your job nor would other people make fun of you if you present it.
