A flight attendant has spilled the beans on how to get "special treatment" when flying by doing simple acts of kindness for the crew.
In a clip uploaded on her TikTok channel, Kat Kamalani says: "If you do this one simple thing on an aircraft, I promise you, you will get the royal treatment from the flight attendants.
"Being a flight attendant is an exhausting job, we do different time zones, waking up different hours, and deal with angry customers.
"So I promise you, the next time you fly, if you want special treatment from the flight attendants this is all you have to do."

Kat then tells people to buy their flight attendants a $5 (£3.60) gift voucher for Starbucks, or another gift such as a chocolate bar or some lip balm.
She adds: "We will know what you look like and we will know where you are sitting and the whole crew will be taken care of."
"Your flight will change DRAMATICALLY," she promised in the caption.
The TikTok video has been watched just under 3 million times since the air hostess uploaded it on Monday (July 12) and thousands of people have left comments, with many praising the idea and others finding the concept of buying gifts ridiculous.
One user said: "I never thought about giving little gifts but it makes sense Thanks for this!"
A second user shared: "I've gotten free drinks just for being polite. It's so rare these days that they appreciate it.
"Has happened to me on Delta and Jet Blue."
"I feel like flight attendants should be courteous as part of their job but there's nothing wrong with a little bit of extra appreciation," commented another.
Someone else wrote: "Isn't that a bribe though?
Kat also posts on her Instagram account and has a YouTube channel where she vlogs about parenting.
