Nassim is a crew member who has been flying the skies for years. The flight attendant shared a very useful money-saving hack for those who are travelling on a budget.
For those passengers who want to save money on holiday, Nassim recommended bringing their own food on the plane as the crew is able to assist with that.
The flight attendant explained if passengers bring their food in “oven-safe containers”, the crew will be able to warm it up in their ovens. The galleys located at the front and back of the plane are equipped with a number of ovens they use to cook the fresh food they serve on board.
Nassim warned, however, that travellers should make sure their food containers can be placed in the oven as aircrafts are not equipped with microwaves so regular plastic containers can not be used.
The crew can also provide cutlery and paper cups if necessary, she explained.

Nassim said: “I would absolutely say bring your own food 100 percent!!
“Go and get snacks the night before.
“Don’t get anything at the airport it’s so expensive!”
However, the flight attendant pointed out that “buying stuff on the plane or at the airport is also part of the travelling experience so if you can splurge why not”.
“But yes, for saving money I would absolutely say bring your 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.
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.”
“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.
