Ryanair flight attendant approves of in-flight hot chocolate – but not Twix bars

A Ryanair flight attendant has shared their top tips for ordering from the airline's famous food trolley.

More so than other airlines, the bringing round of the refreshment cart and the sale of scratch tickets is a major part of the Ryanair experience.

Cabin crew working for the Irish company are heavily incentivised to sell as much as they can from the cart and may earn around £300 a month for doing so, one member of staff told The Mirror.

One piece of advice they offered for those perusing the snack menu is to go for the hot drinks.

"The coffee and hot chocolate are actually quite good, particularly the coffee," they said.

"The coffee is proper filter stuff. I'd drink it."

One item that they pass on however, is the Twix.

"Honestly, the price of a bar of chocolate onboard," they continued. "It's £2.25 for a Twix. I wouldn't go for that. I would bring my own with me."

The price of a 75g Twix from Tesco is 80p, meaning the cost on a Ryanair flight is almost three times more.

Another pair of flight attendants explained what you should never do on a flight – including wearing shorts…

Deanna Castro, a flight attendant with 16 years of service under her belt, shared her top advice.

Deanna said: “When boarding, it’s polite to step into your row and allow other passengers to pass behind you.

"It’s okay to take a few extra minutes to get ready, but please step into the aisle and wait for a lull in traffic."

The flight attendant also noted that you shouldn’t hand sick bags to the crew.

She said: “Place it under your seat.

"We can give you an extra bag to wrap it up in, but please don’t push that hot steaming bag of vomit into a flight attendant’s hands."

While Tommy Cimato noted that some parts of the plane are dirtier than others.

“Don’t or try not to wear shorts when you're on an airplane,” he continued.

"You never know how clean it's going to be, so if you have pants, you're going to have less germs.”
