I’m a flight attendant – this is what we’re doing behind the galley curtain and why we don’t want you to see

FLIGHT attendants have revealed exactly what they do during the flight behind the galley curtains, out of sight of the passengers.

The onboard cabin crew rarely have moments of privacy after takeoff as the needs of the people on board the aircraft take precedence.

Most of these brief rest periods are spent in the galley with the curtain drawn so that the passengers cannot see what they are about to do.

However, one curious person asked flight attendants if they could reveal what they were up to behind the curtains.

In a post on Reddit, the passenger asked, “What’s happening behind the curtain and why can’t we see it?”

A number of flight attendants responded, with most explaining that they very often just make the most of a rare moment of quiet away from other people.

One said: “When we’re visible to customers we try to smile and have a welcoming expression.

“That can be exhausting on a 13-hour workday. Sometimes we just want to be invisible for a few minutes.

“But generally I want to eat without anyone handing me garbage.”

Another wrote: “Eating without the odors from the toilets constantly opening and closing permeating my food.

“Also so people don’t queue up in the galley to use the toilet while I’m trying to eat.”

However, others explained that they used the galley to change clothes after accidents or to do in-flight exercises that relieve the pain of standing up.

One said: “I’ve had colleagues stand guard while I change.

“Think torn pantyhose or large spills. I have also extended this courtesy to passengers who had vomit on them, for example.”

Another explained: “Years ago I saw something somewhere about squats and how it can help with back pain and god knows we get back pain.

“I started this a long time ago and it’s really weird, but I can sit on my heels for 10 minutes now and all my lower back pain is gone. I love it and recommend it.”
