NEXT time you are feeling thirsty on a plane, you may want to hold off asking for a cup of water. Flight attendants have revealed that passengers who ask for the drink are their biggest pet peeve.
One described those passengers as “selfish and cheap” and explained that there is only a certain amount of water on the plane. They said: “I’m mean. I tell them I can give them a cup of water and they can put that in the bottle themselves and if I have extra water by the time I’m done with service I’ll bring them more.
“It’s so selfish and cheap! Sometimes we are cutting it close with the water and these people want the entire bottle.

“If I have the mini bottles that’s what I give during service to get out of those requests.”
Another wrote: “Any time someone would ask me to, I’d fill it halfway depending on the size and tell them I still need water for the rest of the plane.”
A third flight attendant questioned the logic behind waiting to get on the plane before asking to have their bottle filled, especially when there are so many chances to do it in the terminal. They said: “My question is always why didn’t they just fill it in the terminal?
