For some passengers, flights can be nerve-wracking and difficult to handle.
Although some journeys may experience multiple bumps and noises, the cabin crew staff will ensure everything on the flight is okay.
When the plane is experiencing some trouble, the one thing passengers should avoid is interpreting a flight attendants facial expression.
According to pilot Patrick Smith, in his book Cockpit Confidential, doing this is pointless as it is easy to misread the crew members face.
“That glazed look in the flight attendants eyes is probably one of exhaustion”
He wrote: “That glazed look in the flight attendants eyes is probably one of exhaustion, not fear.
“Nervous flyers are prone to envision some silently impending disaster, with distressed crew members pacing the aisles and whispering to each other in secret.
“In reality, passengers will be told about any emergency or serious malfunction.”

The pilot also pointed out that crew will not inform passengers about minor malfunctions if they have “no significant bearing on safety” as it could cause them to panic.
He added: “Being blunt about every little problem invites unnecessary worry, not to mention embellishment.”
While some passengers might worry about turbulence, an anonymous pilot has previously revealed why you shouldnt worry.
Speaking to Express.co.uk, he said: “In all honesty, passengers should never worry about turbulence.
“The aircraft is designed to take the stress and strain of turbulence. For example, its like designing a car with good enough suspension to drive over a rough surface road with potholes.”
