Nassim is a crew member who has been flying the skies for years. She exclusively told Express.co.uk the most effective way travellers can get an upgrade on their next holiday.
The flight attendant said: “I would definitely recommend being really nice to the crew and bringing snacks or treats is always a major plus.”
However, Nassim warned it “depends on who is on the flight, to be honest”.
“If the person who is in charge of the flight or the captain is quite strict we might not be able to upgrade regardless.”
She continued: “If it’s a chilled crew they will try and do it.

“I used to always upgrade people who were really nice or brought us treats if it was possible.
“We will do anything for passengers who are nice to us but not put as much effort in for the ones who aren’t,” she explained.
The flight attendant also shared a very useful money-saving hack for those who are travelling on a budget.
“But yes, for saving money I would absolutely say bring own snacks!!
“Saves so much money and you get so much more.
“Also the options we have onboard are limited.
“We can’t always guarantee everything will be in stock or that it will be enough for everyone,” she explained.
