A FLIGHT attendant has warned passengers which button to never press during take-off – unless you want to be hated by the crew.

Kat Kamalani, who has gained popularity on social media sharing secrets of being part of the flight crew, explained why the call button should be avoided.

She explained to her 745k followers on TikTok: “This drives flight attendants absolutely bonkers when you hit your flight attendant call light button if we are on the tarmac, or going up or going down on the aircraft.

Another person added: “My mom told us don’t ever push that button for any reason. My mom was a flight attendant and until I became one, I now understand why.”

Other flight attendants and pilots agree with Kat too – back in 2018, Steve Bazer, a captain for a large US airline, explained on Quora: “It interferes with their cabin service if it occurs during the first hour and a half, or the last hour of a long flight.

“They are generally in the aisle with their carts, and must discontinue service and stow their cart to reach you [so]it then depends on the nature of the reason you called them.”
