Did You Know That You Can Get These Free Services Whilst Travelling By Plane? Number 4 Is A Shocker!

When you take a plane, prices for onboard services tend to be sky high. But did you know that there are certain things that you can get totally free? Watch our video to learn what some of the free services are. 

Free Inflight Services

1. Tour of the cockpit: If you ask very nicely, the pilot may well let you visit the cockpit of the plane after landing.

2. Second helpings: If you're still hungry after your onboard meal, it's worth asking the cabin crew if there's anything leftover. They'll likely be happy to serve you seconds, if there's anything left of course!

3. First-aid kit: Every plane has a medical kit available with medication and bandages in case of pains or injuries. Cabin crew will be ready to help you with first aid if you need. 

4. Alcohol: For those who are really jittery about flying, it's possible to ask for a little glass of something, served for free, to calm your nerves.  

5. Changing seats: It's always nicer to be sat next to a companion whilst travelling. It's normally fine to ask the cabin crew if you can switch seats, although you'll usually have to wait until all passengers are on board first, and sometimes even until after take-off. 

6. Cleaning wipes: The cabin crew will be able to provide you with cleaning wipes if you need them. Planes are often full of germs, so it's a good idea to ask for these to wipe over your armrests and table. 

7. Doctor services: Just like in the movies, the cabin crew will be able to help you find a doctor on board if you need one. In return, doctors can receive benefits from airlines.

8. Free accessories : There are several bits and pieces you can get for free on board to make your flight more comfortable. These include sleeping masks, toothbrushes, ear plugs and socks. For kids, it's sometimes possible to get pens and a notepad, or even a pack of cards to play with.

9. Free water: You can't get through security without emptying your water bottle but once you're on board you can ask the cabin crew to refill your bottle on the plane.

So there you go! Now you know about all the freebies you'll be able to get on the majority of flights!
