"Because everyone knows their seat numbers, so we're on the cart and he'll be like, 'I'm thinking of doing seven days in America… being 'seat 7A'."
He also said that staff use other numbers and countries and cities to reveal a passenger they particularly like: “And I'll be like, 'yeah, I could do seven days in America. Or like, six days in Denmark..."
During the interview, he also suggested that there were also things that flight attendants said when they didn’t like a particular passenger. He said that if staff didn’t like someone, they’d simply tell them that they’d be right back.
“If a flight attendant ever says to you 'I'll be right back,' we don't like you... and then you just 'forget,'" he said.
James also had a trick for making sure passengers didn’t bother him if he wanted to avoid them. He said he’d use the trick if he wanted to go on a break or have some lunch.
“I used to have a trick every time I went from one end of the plane to the other to eat my lunch someone would always ask me something. And I'm just like I just want to eat my lunch,” he said.
“So I used to have a trick. I'd put a can of coke in a sick bag put a rubber glove on and then walk through the cabin so it looks like I'm holding vomit — no one asked me for a thing."
