    I usually give them a box of chocolates to share just as I board. Show them my boarding pass and give the FA the choccies at the same time.

    Yes. If they are a good, personable driver I may well send $10 or $20 their way.

    Some people on here like to make themselves feel special by handing out chocolates, "apparently" it's appreciated rather than being seen as patronising.

    No need to tip well paid people with money just compliments

    Was looking through news.com.au and saw this. One of the ten hacks recommend tipping FA!

    10 airport hacks that will change how you fly | News.com.au

    AFF members will read this and instantly recognise that the journalist who wrote this has not researched the topic very well if at all. Another example of "quality" journalism just to fill content space.

    Ha yes I find that one funny. I've got quite a few FA friends and they've all said such gestures make the giver look like a bit of a nut.
