Flight Attendants Hate When People Order Diet Coke

Flight attendants aren’t the biggest fans of you when you order a diet coke on the airplane. The reason is that when the flight attendant pours the diet coke into the cup, it takes several seconds for the foam to dissipate before they can pour more. This may sound like a little problem, but you have to remember that they have to serve a whole plane of people that are waiting eagerly to get a drink.

Most of the time, flight attendants will just give you the entire can as they don’t want to deal with it. So next time, just let the flight attendant know that you can pour your own drink.
