Jet charter company Statosjets.com asked 119 flight attendants in the study, with a range of male and female cabin crew members around the world.

While this is a sneaky way to prevent passengers from getting drunk (and buying more expensive drinks), it isn’t the only thing they admitted to doing.

Nearly 75 per cent admitted to refusing service to intoxicated passengers – something they are in their right to do if it is in the interest of everyone else’s safety onboard.

One of the secrets is lying to passengers about why the plane is really delayed.
