Inside the secret airport lounge for flight attendants that you never knew existed

A FLIGHT attendant has revealed the secret lounge that crew can use between flights – and it has lots of amazing perks.

Sarah Goodwin, from Perth, is a flight attendant for Virgin Australia and lifted the lid on the hidden area.

Inside the crew room are vending machines which have spare tights in case theirs snag, although she said they do have to pay for them.

There is also free unlimited tea and coffee – something needed when trying to fight off jet lag.

Sarah also revealed there “showers to freshen up if you need” as well as a “giant mirror” so crew can get ready before their flight.

And one of the best perks? A resting area for when they need to nap without disruption.

She said in her TikTok video, which has since been removed: “The napping area is my fave.”

The room also has a departure board that displays passenger numbers so crew can keep track of flights.

Sarah previously revealed why crew look at your boarding pass when you get on the plane, and it isn’t to get you to your seat.

She explained: “When we’re looking at your boarding passes, we are not looking for your seat number.”

“We are actually looking for the destination, your flight number and the date.”

She added that she sometimes calls back holidaymakers who speed past flight attendants.

Sarah said: “Yes, sometimes I will say, ‘This is where you’re seated’, but I do that because people are always like ‘where am I sitting?’”

While people getting on the wrong flight is uncommon, she says it “can happen”.

There is one code you never want to see on your boarding pass, as it could mean you end up missing your flight.

Sun Travel recently fell victim to this code during a flight – here is what happened.

Sun Online Travel’s resident flight attendant blogger recently revealed more secrets in the skies.

They explained that they have favourite passengers on board who they’d save in an emergency.

Flight attendants have lots of secrets, but they’re also banned from doing three things on a plane.
