57 Best Flight Attendant Jokes – Funniest Cabin Crew Jokes Ever!

Here you will find a selection of the funniest Flight Attendant jokes, quotes and puns ever, as well as funny airplane, airline and airport jokes.

And of course, not to forget those funny Pilot jokes and hilarious Flight Attendant Passenger Announcements we’ve all heard!


 1. The Flight Attendant was doing the safety announcement: ‘In the event of an emergency please put your head between your knees”. A voice at the back of the plane shouted out “If I could do that I wouldn’t be flying to Thailand!”

2. The Flight Attendant asks the passenger ‘Would you like some headphones?’. To which the passenger replied ‘Yeah sure. By the way, how did you know my name was Phones?’.

3. The flight was in cruise when it hit some heavy turbulence. The captain comes on the PA system to give the announcement for passengers to fasten their seatbelts and refrain from using the restrooms at this time.

The Captain however doesn’t realise his push-to-talk button is stuck and he is still transmitting to the cabin as he tells his Co-Pilot: “Wow, after that I could really use a coffee and a blow job!”.

The Flight Attendant at the back of the plane rushes down the aisle to tell the Pilot of his error he is still speaking on the PA. Just as she nears the Flight Deck door a passenger grabs her arm and says: “Don’t forget the coffee!”

4. A passenger says to the Flight Attendant “Hey, want to join the Mile-High Club?”. The Flight Attendant responds “No thanks. I don’t give a flying f**k.”

5. The Flight Attendant gives the passenger the lunch menu. The passenger looks at the menu briefly and then looks the Flight Attendant up and down before giving her a wink.

He leans over and says “Well, I sure could have a quickie right now.” The Attendant is flattered but confused as the passenger’s wife is next to him. She lifts her head up from reading her own menu, and immediately realises what’s happened.

She glances at her husband, then leans over to the Flight Attendant and says “I’m sorry, English isn’t my husband’s first language. I believe he would like to order a *quiche*”.

6. The passenger asked the Flight Attendant if he could join the mile high club. She replied back, ” Sir, we don’t offer that service, we are Virgin Airlines”.

7. During the flight, the Captain grabs the microphone and announces: ” Ladies and Gentleman, this is your Captain. The weather ahead is good, so we should have an uneventful flight. So, sit back, relax, and… OH… MY GOD!” Silence followed.

A few moments later the Captain makes another announcement: “Ladies and Gentleman, I’m sorry if I scared you. While I was talking, one of your lovely Flight Attendants accidentally spilled coffee on my lap. You should see the front of my pants!”

From the cabin, an Irish passenger yells “For the luvva Jaysus, you should see the back of mine!”

8. An inquisitive young boy on a flight turned to his mother and asked, ‘If dogs have baby dogs and cats have baby cats, why don’t planes have baby planes???? The mother couldn’t think of an answer, so told him to ask the Flight Attendant.

The Flight Attendant, hearing the previous conversation replied ‘There are no baby planes because our planes always pull out on time. Now ask your mother to explain that to you!’

9. Tom and Harry are a gay couple flying on an airplane. Tom turns to Harry, “you know what would be wild? We should have sex on the plane, right here in our seats”.

Harry replies to him “whoa, there are people everywhere. They would watch, it’d be weird”. Tom replies “Nobody pays attention on a plane”. With that he gets up and says out loud down the cabin ” Hey can I borrow a pencil, anyone?”

Nobody even looks up or pays the slightest bit of attention. Tom turns back to Harry and says  “See? Nothing”. “Well, I guess you’re right.” Replies Harry. So they go ahead and have sex right there in their seats.

At the end of the flight, one of the Flight Attendants walks down the aisle and finds an old man with vomit all down his shirt. “Sir, if you felt ill you should have called me – I would have brought you a vomit bag or something”.

To which the old man replied “I wouldn’t dare! A guy up there asked for a pencil, and he got f**ked in the @ss!”

10. A lawyer boarded an airplane in New York with a box of frozen crabs and told the Flight Attendant to take put them in the fridge for him.

He told her that he was holding her personally responsible for them staying frozen, and mentioned in a very rude manner that he was a lawyer. He proceeded to rant at her about what would happen if she let them thaw out.

Needless to say, she was annoyed by his behaviour and shortly before landing, she used the intercom to announce to the entire cabin, “Would the gentleman who gave me the crabs in New York, please raise your hand?”

Not one hand went up … so she took them home and ate them.

11. A Baptist Preacher sits next to a middle-aged man on a flight. After the plane takes off, the man asks for a whiskey and soda, which the Flight Attendant promptly brings.

The Flight Attendant then asks the Preacher if he would like a drink. Appalled, the Preacher replies, “I would rather be tied up and taken advantage of by women of ill-repute, than let liquor touch my lips.”

The middle-aged man then hands his drink back to the Flight Attendant and says, “Me too, I didn’t know we had a choice.”

12. I sleep better naked. Why can’t this Flight Attendant understand that?

13. What’s the difference between a plane engine and a Flight Attendant? The engine stops whining after take-off.

14. The best part about being a Flight Attendant has to be walking down the aisle saying ‘trash’ to everyone’s face.

15. Shortly after take-off on a flight from Dublin to New York, the Flight Attendant nervously made the following announcement:

“Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m very sorry but it appears that there has been a terrible mix-up by our catering service. We have 103 passengers on board, and unfortunately we received only 40 dinner meals.

I truly apologize for this and anyone who is kind enough to give up their meal so that someone else can eat, will receive free unlimited drinks for the duration of our 10 hour flight.” 

Her next announcement came about 2 hours later: “If anyone is hungry, we still have 40 dinners available.”

16. The Flight Attendant asks the passenger if he would like a beverage. ‘Coke please’ he replies. She asks him if he would like it in the can. He replies ‘no, here is fine’.

17. It was mealtime on an airplane and the Flight Attendant asked a passenger if he would like some dinner. “What are my choices?” the passenger asked. “Yes or no,” she replied.

19. I asked the Flight Attendant what was in the spaghetti sauce. She said don’t worry it’s plane pasta.

20. A blind Pilot and blind co-Pilot both walk onto the plane waiving their walking sticks. The passengers all look at each other concerned and in disbelief.

The Flight Attendant announces over the PA “Ladies and Gentlemen as you can see the Captain and co-Pilot are legally blind, but I assure you they are two of the best pilots with over 5,000 successful flights together.”

The plane begins to take off from the runway and as it gains speed the passengers grow tenser. The plane accelerates faster, approaching the end of the runway and still has not taken off.

It’s almost at the end of the runway and the passengers look on until eventually they scream “WE ARE GOING TO DIE!!” Then suddenly the plane lifts off the tarmac and begins its ascent. 

At this point the Pilot turns to the Co-Pilot and says, “The day these passengers stop screaming we’re f**ked!!!”

21. The plane made a difficult landing due to the wind. The Flight Attendant said over the intercom ‘sorry for the bumpy landing – it wasn’t the Captain’s fault, it wasn’t the Airlines’s fault, it wasn’t the Flight Attendant’s fault… it was the asphalt!’.

22. The Flight Attendant kept making jokes….. but none of them seem to have landed.

23. I asked my Flight Attendant friend if she would be able to come to my wedding… she told me her availability is up in the air.

24. A passenger hands their boarding pass to the Flight Attendant and asks ‘window or aisle?’, to which the Flight Attendant replied ‘window or you’ll what?’.

25. The movie I was watching was so bad that I had to walk out. Unfortunately, the Flight Attendant told me that she can’t open the doors mid-flight.

26. The Flight Attendant told some jokes that just weren’t funny and nobody laughed… I don’t think his stand up career is ever going to take off.

27. A young blonde woman gets on a flight from LA to New York and has an economy seat but goes and sits in First Class. The First Class Flight Attendant walks up to her and asks “ma’am may I see your First Class ticket please?”

The woman refuses to show her ticket and continues sitting in First Class, refusing to go to Economy. After a couple minutes of not being able to make the woman move to her assigned seat the Flight Attendant goes to the Cockpit to inform the Captain of the situation.

The Captain takes a quick look through First Class and says… “Is that her? The blonde woman?” The Flight Attendant looks over and says “Yes it is”. The Captain says “Hold on, I’ll be back in a second.” 

He walks up to the woman and starts talking to her. They exchange a couple of laughs and then all of a sudden the woman has a look of terror on her face.

She grabs her hand luggage and runs to the back of the plane to sit in her assigned seat. The Captain comes back to the cockpit and everyone in the cockpit is amazed.

The Flight Attendant asks “That’s amazing! How did you get her to move so quickly?”. The Captain says “Oh, I just told her that everyone in First Class was going to Chicago.”

28. A falcon tried to board the plane carrying two dead raccoons. The Flight Attendant stopped him and said ‘sorry, we only allow one carrion’.

29. My friend got a job as a Flight Attendant… she’s really moving up in the world.

31. A new Flight Attendant on her first layover rings down to the reception in the hotel crying: “I can’t get out of the room! There are only three doors in here. One is the bathroom, one is the closet, and one has a sign on it that says ‘Do Not Disturb’!”

32. A plane is full of a group of avid Reddit users, and suddenly a man starts having a heart attack. One of the Flight Attendants notices and quickly shouts: “We’re having an emergency! Is anyone on this plane a doctor?”.

Immediately, five people stand up and all say, “I’m not a doctor, but…”

33. A plane emergency lands in the water but none of the passengers are willing to go on the life boat. The Flight Attendant asks the Captain what to do. The Captain replied: ‘Tell the Americans that it is an “adventure”. 

Tell the English that it is a “honour”. Tell the French that it is “romantic”. Tell the German that it is “law”. Tell the Japanese that it is an “order”. I am certain that they will all comply.’

The Flight Attendant then asks what shall he tell the Indians. The Captain responded “Tell them its FREE”.

52. ‘There is no smoking in the cabin on this flight. There is also no smoking in the lavatories. If we see smoke coming from the lavatories, we will assume you are on fire and put you out. This is a free service we provide.’

53. ‘Please be careful when opening the overhead bins because, you know, shift happens.’

54. If you need an additional reading light, just push the button above your head with the lightbulb on it. That’ll turn the light on. However, if you push the button above your head with the Flight Attendant on it, it does not turn us on.’
